More Lucky Stories

by | Oct 24, 2023 | Articles, Luck

There has been a tremendous response to my request for your lucky stories. There are already some consistent emerging trends that make some people lucky. They will all go in my new book, and I have space for a few more too. So send me your lucky stories now.

The stories so far include:

I feel very lucky to have an amazing knowledge of classical music, but I’ve been actively listening and working at it for the best part of 25 years. It’s probably a case of a mixture of ‘making my own luck’, taking my chances, and pure out-of-the-blue luck, plus some obsessive behaviour thrown in.

These words could equally apply to all the elite performers that I coach. A volatile mix of passion, hard work, and sharp focus.

Another reader shared an illuminating quote.

“Immense power is acquired by assuring yourself, in your secret reveries, that you were born to control affairs.”

Andrew Carnegie 

The key words to me are “in your secret reveries.” Carnegie was calling us to a deeper belief than most experience.

It is no coincidence that Carnegie worked with Napoleon Hill, author of ‘Think and Grow Rich’. TAGR sold 35 million copies. So his ‘secret reveries’ are a lot more accurate than you might have thought.   Grandfathers are often a source of wisdom. Especially if they happen to be a brilliant Mathematician.

He always warned us not to play on the various one arm bandits and other coin operated games on the pier, as the odds were stacked against us. It transpired however that he used to study them on a regular basis and manually calculated when they were likely to pay out. Following what can only be described as a ‘major winning streak’, he got ‘very lucky’ and was banned from the pier. The owner also threw a particularly ‘unlucky’ machine off the pier and into the sea!

The hugest coincidence so far involves TV presenter Sean Macintosh, his passion for vintage cars, and his desire to work on the massive international motoring programme ‘Top Gear’.   More soon……
