Feeling lucky?

When I was growing up, my dad used to say that we make our own luck. I thought about my dad as I read the recent WSJ article about research on luck. Findings are that if you believe you have a lucky charm, a lucky ball, etc., you may actually perform better. While the article mentions superstitions and being overconfident, I think the concept of feeling GOOD, feeling LUCKY, feeling BLESSED can go a long way to getting where you want to go in your career and life. You have to believe in the POSSIBILITY or PROBABILITY of getting what you want to get it.

    This is spot on Gerriann! So interesting, especially from a salesperson's perspective. Many sales folks can often be superstitious. I like to trend toward the quote, "Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it". If you believe in what you call the "Possibility" you're more like to achieve it.
