Can you create your luck?

Richard Wiseman wrote a book The Luck Factor: Change Your Luck and Change Your Life, and Ali Davis has been following its recommendations and recording his strokes of luck in a series of field reports.

Of the book, Publisher’s Weekly writes:

While many believe luck is a mystical force influenced by superstitious rituals, Wiseman, psychology chair at the University of Herfordshire in England, claims lucky people simply possess four basic psychological traits unlucky people don’t: the ability to maximize chance opportunities, to listen to “gut feelings,” to expect good fortune and to see the bright side of bad luck. Questionnaires and exercises offer guidance on how to acquire or enhance luckiness while keeping a “luck journal” and incorporating techniques to increase intuition, stop negative self-fulfilling prophecies and learn how to effectively network.
