Rich people and poor people think about luck differently.

You see when poor people think about luck, they think of good things happening to them without their input.

The rich on the other hand look at luck quite differently.

It’s more about unexpected terrible things, which are not under their control and interfering with what they’re already doing.

Here’s how you can do the same.

Isn’t it weird how most successful people out there, given conflicting advice!

Like you must make your own luck, mixed with I got lucky.

But most of them are trying to say is that they were prepared for the opportunity and when it finally hit, they didn’t let go.

That’s how we want you to think about luck and today we’re going to point you in the right direction.

Here are some proven steps to create your own luck.

Understand How Lucky You Already Are!

Face it!

Your life is amazing already, isn’t it?

You’re doing at least okay, enjoying this educational content, on your high-end device, in the comfort of your home or car, surrounded by a bunch of stuff, you already get to enjoy.

Life is good. Yes?

We know, it could be better, and we plan to show you, how you can do just that.

But without understanding, just how lucky you are to be alive right now, you won’t be able to appreciate the things, that are waiting for you.

You could have died by now.

You have some people who care about you.

You have a home. Be grateful for this.

Remind yourself often, just how blessed you really are.

Take this opportunity and write down five things you’re grateful for in life.

We’re not kidding do it.

Put this list in your pocket and remind yourself constantly you’ll wake up tomorrow and not let all this good fortune go to waste.

You’re almost responsible to make the most out of it, aren’t you?

We’re all a lot luckier than we realize, unbelievably!

Usually, we get what we want, or near enough the problem people are that they don’t want more. 

Venture into the Unknown Try Some New Habits

Here’s the deal.

Doing more of what you’ve done, will get you the same results you’re getting.

If there was any luck in what you were doing, you used it all, so you need to find luck in other places.

Most people think luck will come to them when you accidentally run into it.

This implies you’ll have to run.

The best thing you can do is to pick up some new habits, change some existing ones, and see where they take you.

It begins with a decision and figuring out what it takes for it to happen, once you do keep going and growing because of it.

Here’s a quick example of something that happened to one of our friends.

He picked up gym habit… meets a guy… they become good friends… and the friend asks him to come to an event with him… well he ends up meeting the woman he’s now married to and you certainly, know of similar events in your own life.

Some call it serendipity or chance, but it wouldn’t have happened if he kept shoving takeaway into his mouth on the sofa watching Netflix.

In order to get yourself up for a shot at and getting lucky you need to venture out into the unknown and be more than you already are.

Learn to Have Your Eyes Open.

Ready to have your mind blown.

In the last two weeks of your life, you’ve come near not only one, but two life-changing opportunities. You’re just now aware of them.

There’s an almost infinite number of variables going on in your life around you.

Every week you could make one decision that changes your life completely.

Do you know, how many times you’ve been in a room with someone, who could have changed your life, but you were unaware of it?

Think back to the biggest shifts that have ever happen in your life and you’ll realize, how lucky you are that they worked out the way they did.

These are happening all the time. You’re just aware of them after the fact.

So, why is it we don’t all see these?

Well, for one we’re busy looking at our phones but that’s not the main thing, it has to do with what we’re asking our brain to focus on.

Here’s a quick experiment…

If I asked you to go out and look for red cars, you’d suddenly notice them… See the car model… The license plate… Who’s driving.

You’re trying to see the red car. But if at the end of the day, I asked you how many people were wearing jeans, you’d get mad because I made you look at red cars!

What do jeans have to do with anything?

This experiment is called “The Invisible Gorilla” and hopefully, most of you are familiar with it.

But it proved that if people are focused on one thing, everything else becomes a blur, and what did you do for the past couple of years… You are focused on the day-to-day stuff… Your job… Your bills… Your to-do lists.

You’re missing opportunities because you’re not looking up around you.

Search and Apply to Every Opportunity

Now that we understand, we must look for opportunities and our behavior will change.

With your eyes and ears open wide, you are casually going about your day.

From chat to chat, you hear about a new opening at a competing firm.

You hear about the next-door neighbor, wanting to sell off his house quickly because he’s getting divorced.

You notice a business event happening next Friday or a class about a passion of yours.

The more you look, the more of these opportunities will show up.

Do you know what the hard part is?

Shooting the email, saying you might want to interview for the job… Calling the neighbor to start a dialogue or buying the tickets for the event.

Other people are seeing these opportunities as well, but a small portion of the population acts, when they see something, they’re interested in.

Everybody else postpones it until it fades into a what could have been category.

In the words of the great Wayne Gretzky: You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take

And here’s where things get amazing… You only need to hit one of those shots and your life upgrades immensely.

Get Really Good at One Thing

To make the most out of every opportunity, you must have a key that gets you through the door. Otherwise, you’re just walking past the building.

This is where you should be strategic with your life.

Pick something you feel you could be great at and master it.

Going laser-sharp at one thing will give you a competitive advantage, to make sense of opportunities others are missing.

Every skill tree can grow branches and depend upon what’s available to you, you might end up growing in different directions.

If the sun is shining on your street, you’ll keep growing.

When you’re good at something you don’t have to search for work. Offers come to you.

Do that until your position is solidified in the process.

You’ll start to see different opportunities; you could branch into. But you must focus your efforts, on the one thing first.

This is a mistake a newbie entrepreneur makes.

They try to do everything but end up doing nothing much at all.

Pick strength and put a couple of years into it! Yes!! You heard it right… Years!

If you’re in this for good, it won’t happen overnight, no matter how good you are.

One of the best books on this is “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. It gives an integrated approach to the problem of being distracted by too many shiny objects and it should be on your reading list this year. 

Make Your Work Visible.

You know how some people are mad, that others get opportunities that they should have deserved.

Well, guess what… Your work or your ability didn’t shine enough to be considered.

We all want the most capable person for the job, but we don’t know about you… We don’t know what you can do… So the opportunity goes to the best one we know of.

Shocking, right?

If you want to start getting lucky and get those amazing shots at life, you need to be bigger… you need to be more visible.

Show the world what you can do… Document it… Put it out… Post it… Yell it… If you must.

That’s how people who need what you’re offering, will find you and if they don’t find them yourself.

We got the opportunity to work with some of the biggest brands in the world and truth be told not all of them have heard about us.

We reached out to them and highlighted what we can do.

That’s how you create your own luck.

Search for that email and take your shot.

What’s the worst they could say? No. Well, the answer is no by default if you don’t ask.

Keep Showing Up.

I tried it once and it didn’t work.

I tried it for a year, and it didn’t work.

I went to the meeting and I didn’t get it well shoot.

Keep at it… not getting it is a part of the process.

How can the world know you really want it if you quit after your first rejection?

How can you expect to do this for the rest of your life and want to quit after only one year?

Every successful person out there has a bunch of rejections under their belt and the main reason, why they’re regarded as successful today… Is because they didn’t allow those rejections to stop them from their pursuit.

Oprah was told, she wouldn’t be right for TV or radio.

Stephen King’s books were turned down by everybody.

Billionaire Jack Ma couldn’t even get a job at KFC.

Ask anyone of them and they’ll tell you, how they took it upon themselves to create their own luck.

Show the world, what you’ve got.

Keep putting one foot, in front of the other, no matter what others are saying.

It’s just a matter of time until you catch a break.

Let’s dive into the topic, without wasting any time.

Work smarter not harder

You want to get lucky in life don’t get stuck, because if you’re stuck… you’re not growing.

Luck favors only those who are agile, who move, who embrace change to put things into perspective.

Think about it as this demanding work gets you more of what you’re already getting.

Smart work is what allows you to go beyond that but how does one work smarter.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Track down what you’re spending most of your time on.
  • Identify the tasks that take up the most time with the lowest value.
  • Either automate outsource or systemize those
  • Use your free time to acquire new skills that are it.

People often say, “Oh! You’re so lucky to be your own boss and have your own business”, but so many people make the mistake of starting a company and being the only employee in that business.

Working more than they ever did for lower money than before.

Your goal is to not be that.

Follow Your Guts

There’s something in each of us that we really can’t put our fingers on, but we know it’s there.

Some people call it their gut… Some call it instinct.

It’s a feeling you get when something is about to go right or wrong.

You might not want to go to a different city for an audition because of the long drive. But if you’re feeling like this might be the one, go do it.

Is this the right person to go into business with? Trust your gut.

How do I feel about these people? Are they genuine in their intentions? Then why does it feel like they’re hiding something?

The more you use your gut, the more accurate it becomes.

You learn how to notice subtle hints that will save you from a lot of trouble and heartache.

It can also make you rich and successful when used right.

Learn to use it as a compass and see where it takes you.

Hard work beats talent and luck when talent and luck don’t work hard enough!

If you are born into a successful family… If you have access to every tool you need… Then good for you! Make the most out of the hand you’ve been dealt and don’t take it for granted.

For the rest of you, we know things could have been better… But what’s behind you, you can’t change. You know

What you can do about the Future?

You control how many hours a day you put in. How much you learn?… How much you practice?… How hard you push yourself?

Lucky or unlucky doesn’t even matter at this point.

Luck is too small of a percentage, in the success equation.

Remember Fort Minor?

“Ten percent luck twenty percent skill… Fifteen percent concentrated power of will… Five percent pleasure… Fifty percent pain… You know the rest!

Are you going to push through the pain?

Are you going to come out on the other side or are you going to be a victim complacent in your mediocrity live?

Your life wondering, what could have you been made a choice today to watch this and we congratulate you for it.

If you took the notes… If you pulled out the golden nuggets this next week is going to be different for you.

Use the word luck in the comments just to prove you made it to this point.

Then go crush this week.

We challenge you to see opportunities, where you’ve never seen them before go make your own luck.

Meet people be nice to them and offer to help

We want you to write this down.

People create opportunities for other people.

If you’re looking for opportunities… First look for people they have all of them.

People know things, they know other people… They know what they need… They know what they’re struggling with… What’s working… What’s in store for them.

Your six connections away from every person in the world.

A Microsoft study called it “the six degrees of separation” over ten years ago when the internet wasn’t as big as it is today.

If you’re looking for luck, look no further than with other people.

The Buddhists call it karma, for every good.

You get a certain portion of luck which will serve you well at some point in the future.

All you must do is, be like those cake people on Reddit and form Karma.

Offer to help those people who are looking for it and you’ll be amazed where it leads you.

If you can’t help yourself, it’s great when you can recommend someone who can… Now two of your connections are better off because of you and they’ll remember it.

Keep saying YES.

There are two different parts of the life of a successful individual “the YES and NO” times.

This might be your first time being introduced to this so pay attention.

Depending on where you are in your journey, you should make a priority to say yes or no.

If you’re feeling stuck… If you feel like, you’re not breaking through into that next level… If you feel like, you don’t know exactly how to make the jump… Then you have to say YES, to every single opportunity coming your way.

The goal here is to increase your chances of finding that “One Thing”, for you to grab onto moving forward. 

If this is you, then it becomes a numbers game.

Meet as many people as possible… Take on as many projects as you can… Do anything you can do, until you find that one thing.

This is especially true and useful for people early on in their journey or those who’ve not yet found their thing.

Once you do it’s time to focus on saying NO to everything else… Once you identify the next milestone in your life… You’ve got to remove your distractions.

People will want things from you, mostly your time, and every minute you give you’re taking away from the life you could live.

As your journey progresses, you’ll find your ability to determine when to say YES and when to say NO improves dramatically.

Once you get the hang of it other people will look at the thing you’re achieving as luck, because they can’t figure it out.

Raise your expectations

This is a big one.

Every successful person out there, expected themselves to be successful.

Every rock star was once a kid, who made it their mission to become a rock star.

Without the expectation of an incredible outcome… It’ll never happen simply.

Put your life changes, based on your expectations of it.

Do you want to live like this for the rest of your life or do you expect more of yourself?

Do you think there’s more to life and waking up going to work eating and going back to sleep?

Do you expect others to treat you at your worth…? I mean damn Gina do something about it.

The moment you raise your expectations of yourself and those around you… This new set of standards will force you to change your behavior, no matter how high you set your expectations.

If they’re not backed by action… You’ll still be in the same place you’re in or right now.

Think like the super successful

Hey Explicit Facters! Truth be told.

This is the only shortcut we found for success. Now let us explain, as you know there are no shortcuts to any place worth going… But there is this thing where you can track your life into success.

This has nothing to do with the law of attraction, but instead, it’s about thinking bigger solving a bigger issue.

It took us a couple of years to understand this… But it takes the same amount of work to make a million dollars per year, as it takes to make 50,000.

The difference lies in the scale of your thinking and if you’re going to think anyway you might as well think big. Right?

Start looking at the bigger picture… Start looking for that if I get this right my life will change opportunity and pursue that.

Super successful people don’t waste most of their time on day-to-day activities. They’re super busy looking as far ahead into the future as they can.

Once they have their eye on the prize, they reverse-engineer the process and focus their actions on the correct steppingstones.

Leverage bad luck

Okay, you didn’t get lucky in life so far… You’ve had a chain of unpleasant events happening to you… Well, we’ve got good news.

Your good times are ahead of you.

Although we are super complex organisms… Everything around us obeys a couple of universal laws one of them is “The law of averages” for all the shit, you’ve had to endure so far in life.

There’s caviar waiting at the next stop, who knows… You never really know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.

You didn’t get the job you wanted, and this crushed you now. But it forced you to start a business that’s growing beyond your wildest dreams.

Your crush turned you down and your heart was broken. But a year later you met the most amazing person in the world.

Things that may seem like bad luck now, given enough time, might turn into positives.

If you were to live your life without any knowledge of what it takes to create your own luck, the law of averages would be an incredible place, to begin with.

But this is where things become interesting.

If you’re actively aware of the things we mentioned on this list… If your actions are strategic… This is no longer just an element of chance.

Life becomes like one of those rigged dice with a heavier bottom.

This brings us to our next point.

Don’t leave your own luck to chance

Getting lucky isn’t a long-term success strategy.

Always be wary of the people, who expect luck to solve their problems.

We prefer a different crowd of people who don’t need luck to get everything they want from life.

You see challenging work looks like luck to those who weren’t paying attention.

Your happiness, your success, who you are, should not be dependent on something outside of your control.

Instead understand that you have the power to decide, what you want to do tomorrow.

You’ve made a choice right now to absorb this information so you might as well put it to work. Right?

You have the knowledge, you know what to do, you just must use it no matter how hard things get just hang in there.

Change the petty things… You can change and eventually… Things will start going your way.

Once you become self-made, it’s hard to listen to people who didn’t get lucky because you see that luck was their only ingredient.

This brings us to today’s questions. When did you make your own luck?

We want all of you to join this opportunity and share firsthand experiences of when you created your own luck.

It’ll be super valuable for the community to understand that this is something one can do and what better way to showcase it then through the “Explicit Facts Family”, share your stories.

We’ll be sure to lurk around in the comments as well and for those of you watched until the end we’re sharing one bit of bonus information.
