Roald Amundsen said "Victory awaits him who has everything in order - luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time; this is called bad luck." Having everything in order certainly helped lead him to victory in the race to be first to the South Pole, even if the decidedly more unlucky Robert Scott is better remembered now.

There is no definite answer to who the luckiest person ever was, but Frane Selak is often mentioned. The Croatian music teacher allegedly miraculously escape death seven times before going on to win the lottery. You could certainly argue that he would have been luckier if he'd just won the lottery and not had the close brushes with tragedy, but even then he may not have been as lucky as Texas lady Joan Ginther who won the lottery an amazing 4 times winning a total of over $20 million in the process.

Professor and magician Richard Wiseman from the University of Hertfordshire, who on top of all his academic accolades has appeared on The Infinite Monkey Cage and been name checked by Stephen Fry on QI, did extensive research into hundreds of people who either considered themselves very lucky or unlucky. He discovered that what people think and the way they behaved had a big effect on their fortune.

Lucky people are much better at spotting opportunities and capitalising on them than unlucky people. Professor Wiseman found everyone can improve their luck by following these four pieces of advice:

  • Always listen to your gut instincts, they are usually right.
  • Always be open to new experiences and getting out of your normal routine.
  • Try and spend some time each day remembering things that went well for you.
  • Picture yourself being lucky before an important event. Luck is very often a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Had Make Me Lucky been available when he did his research, we are pretty sure he would also have added pressing the Make Me Lucky button to his advice!
