As a kid, I used to spend time thinking about what I would do if I had a magic wand or friendly leprechaun, and my biggest wish was always for 'unlimited wishes'. What I didn't realize then is that there are, in fact, ways that you can increase your chances of making all of your wishes come true--almost like having a little magic up your sleeve! One of the best ways for this to happen is to become an optimist. Among other things, optimists tend to get more of what they want and less of what they don't, and they let setbacks roll off their backs.

Another way to increase your luck--a method that many people swear by--is to employ the Law of Attraction in your daily life. Whether you believe that it will bring you everything you wish for, or you just expect it to clarify your goals and work harder to achieve them, it can be an effective tool for going after your dreams.

A third way to feel lucky in your life is to focus on maintaining an attitude of gratitude for what you already have. You may find that you feel quite rich and blessed already, in ways you didn't realize before.

All of these methods can help with stress management, and all are simple, effective ways to feel lucky in your life. And they're all better bets than chasing down the magic, wish-granting unicorn of my childhood daydreams.

I’m usually a pessimist, but I really wanted my luck to be better… So I said, “why not” and tried this. The funny thing is… It worked. NEVER GONNA BE A PESSIMIST AGAIN!

It’s very true! I love all this. Simply having an upbeat attitude about things makes everything better. The challenge is keeping the mind frame when something not so positive happens. However when those situations DO occur, and they will, if you can keep your positive attitude up the whole time, you’ll come out of it an even better person!
