There is no lucky people in this world

Yes , there is no one that is forever lucky nor forever unlucky . There is nothing call luck , is all about chance and whether you manage to grab it or not .

Well , don't tell me that you are unlucky , when you got into trouble because you are so UNLUCKY that you overspeed and get caught . Don't you know you should peep *to the left* and *to the right* . Only speed when you are sure that there is no one in blue hiding in the bush XD ( PS : I didn't advice you all to SPEED )

And don't ever jealous with those who are so-called LUCKY . They just think differently from those who claim themselves as the UNLUCKY one . There is a research carried out by Professor Richard Wiseman , a psychologist . Hmmm , looking at his name , you know how wise he is XD Ra-ra-ra

Ok story time people =)

The question is why do some people get all the luck while others never get the breaks they deserve? Prof. Richard Wiseman decided to carry out a research regarding this question . He actually placed advertisements in national newspapers and magazines, asking for people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky to contact him . Over the years, 400 extraordinary men and women volunteered for my research from all walks of life: the youngest is an 18-year-old student, the oldest an 84-year-old retired accountant.

There are some who claim that they are very lucky , as they have my dream job, wonderful children and a great person whom they love very much bla bla bla . On the other hand , some poor fellow categorised them as those unlucky one , those who twisted her ankle in a pothole, injured her back in another fall and reversed her car into a tree during a driving lesson , some who so unlucky in love and felt they was always in the wrong place at the wrong time . what the nonsense LOL

Over the years , he interviewed those volunteers , asked them to complete diaries , questionnaires and intelligent test bla bla bla . The most interesting experiment was that he actually gave both lucky and unlucky people a newspaper , and asked them to look through it and tell me how many photographs were inside. On average , the unlucky people took about two minutes to count the photographs , whereas the lucky people took just seconds . Why ? Because the second page of the newspaper contained the message : "Stop counting . There are 43 photographs in this newspaper . " This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than 2in high . It was staring everyone straight in the face , but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it .

For fun , he placed a second large message halfway through the newspaper : " Stop counting . Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win £250 . " Again , the unlucky people missed the opportunity because they were still too busy looking for photographs . AWW ~

See this ? unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else . Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there rather than just what they are looking for . Thats the biggest different between them .
