Let’s say your 2017 is pretty boring with lots of bad luck, who can you blame? Well, If you weren’t born with the “Luck of the Irish” or born under a lucky star, are you doomed to a life without luck? Well, consider this your lucky day because you’re about to learn five ways to increase your luck for 2018, and it has nothing to do with what you were born with or without—you can bet on that.

1. Banish Clutter

Don’t just clear the decks, clear your mind too. Being clutter-free has been shown to help people think more clearly, be more productive and feel more inspired. So, if you’re truly looking for ways to increase your luck, this would be the best way to start.

2. Think Positively

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m just not lucky, so why should I even try”? Have you ever known that person to be lucky? On the flip side, if you’ve ever witnessed the power of positive thinking, you know it can change a person’s world. When you think positively you attract positive results—you increase your luck.

3. Have Vision

Visualization is a powerful tool you can use to increase your luck. Picture yourself where you are right now (Point A) and then imagine where you’d like to be in 5 or 10 years from now (Point B). By doing this you’ll begin to both consciously and unconsciously take the steps necessary to physically carry you from one point to the other, turning your vision into a reality and making you one of the lucky ones.

4. Be Diligent

Benjamin Franklin once stated, “Diligence is the mother of good luck.” In other words, luck is available to all those who remain persistent in their pursuits. Another famous saying that mimics this sentiment is, “Winners never quit and a quitter never wins.” If you stick with something long enough, you’ll increase your luck. If you give up, then you’ll never know how lucky you could have been.

5. Try Numerology

If you think luck can be found in the numbers, you’re on to something. You’ve been surrounded by numbers since the day you were born. A numerologist would be the best authority on how to tap into the power of numbers to help increase your luck.

Astrology and the psychic arts can be helpful in the area of luck as well. Life leaves little clues everywhere; we just have to know how to find them. If we can’t do it on our own, then we can enlist the help of others.

Any of these 5 suggestions would be helpful on their own, but if you’re seriously looking for ways to increase your luck and influence your future, why not try them all? The sooner you take action, the sooner you’ll be living your lucky life.
