From the Inside Flap
Master The Book of Luck's seven principles and you will find yourself being lucky, always.
Control-Ability is about choosing and flexing your response to events and situations that arise, no matter how difficult they may be.
Result? Less blaming the unkind hand of fate and more lucky breaks.
Stick-Ability is about perseverance, tenacity and following things through – even when the odds are against you. It is about finishing off what you start.
Result? Achieving goals no one else thought possible.
Risk-Ability is about having the confidence to take a chance rather than plumping for the safe bet. It means having an open mind and a willingness to think differently.
Result? More lucky opportunities will come your way.
Sense-Ability means using all your senses and feelings to heighten your awareness of lucky opportunities. It includes making the most of gut feeling and intuition.
Result? Having the confidence to rely on your inner voice.
Socia-Ability is the knack of relating easily to other people in a variety of contexts.
Result? More lucky coincidences.
Percept-Ability is all about how you look at life, events, yourself and others. Is your attitude to life optimistic? Do you shrug off (small) worries and concerns? If you do, this is true percept-ability!
Result? The ability to turn bad luck into good.
Person-Ability is knowing yourself well enough to recognise what works well for you and what can work against you.
Result? Being able to harness all your natural luck skills.--This text refers to the Digital edition.
