Being lucky in sales or business
Do you want to be fortunate in your business or in sales??
Professor Richard Wiseman in his book “The Luck Factor: The Scientific Study of the Lucky Mind” (2003). talks about four principles to help increase your good fortune:
Principle One: Maximise Chance Opportunities. Fortunate people (those with luck) are skilled at creating, noticing and acting upon chance opportunities. They do this through networking, choosing a relaxed attitude to life and by being open to new experiences.They get out of the house, off the couch and tend to be more sociable. Meet new clients, be a good person. Be likeable.
Principle Two: Listening to Hunches. Lucky people make better decisions by listening to their intuition and gut feelings. they also tend to take steps to actively boost their intuitive abilities through meditating and clearing their mind of other thoughts. Listen to your gut.
Principle Three: Expect Good Fortune. Expecting the future to be full of good things. These expectations become self-fulfilling prophecies, they help these people persist in the face of failure shaping their interactions with others in a positive way. Create positive expectation through creating value in product and service, through preparation.
Principle Four: Turn Bad Luck to Good Luck. The people who employ various psychological techniques to cope with, and find the silver lining of the ill fortune that comes their way have substantially more luck – they. For example, they spontaneously imagine how things could have been worse, do not dwell on the ill fortune, and take control of see opportunities everywhere.Have the right attitude.
