Maximize Your Luck to Succeed Despite Your Bad Boss!

Luck has a lot more to do with your outlook than it does with rabbit’s feet or random chance. And your outlook is something truly under your control!

Scientist Richard Wiseman has devoted much of his career to studying lucky versus unlucky people. Guess what? 

Jessica Stillman, reporting on Wiseman’s research for CBS’s Moneywatch stated that: “Lucky people had a particular outlook and way of operating in the world that maximized the chances of happy coincidences occurring…[among which] Lucky people are skilled at creating, noticing and acting upon chance opportunities. They do this in various ways, including networking, adopting a relaxed attitude to life and by being open to new experiences.”

How about that? When it comes to your job, creating, noticing and acting upon those chance opportunities that might draw the positive attention of others than your horrible Boss--like managers and VPs who could mentor or promote you--could be a way to get going in your career, regardless of, well, you know who!
