Whether you wear a unique lucky charm or have a special talent for finding four-leaf clovers, share what works for you and inspire us with the things that make you feel lucky.
Luck: Is it destined or created?
This question has captivated audiences for centuries, and scientists have tried to prove whether lucky charms have powers or not. Researchers at the University of Cologne in Germany conducted a test in which half the participants in a game of golf were told on the second round that they were playing with a lucky ball. The other half weren’t told the ball was lucky. There was a 35% improvement with the participants who were told the ball was lucky. Another study by a British University showed that more than 30% of the people who carried good luck charms felt their luck had improved. These are just two of the millions of studies which show what some may say is the “power of the mind” or the “power of luck”. You may not believe in luck, but if you look at life closely you may in fact be surprised to find that some things in life just come to you; or don’t. This is why it is important to know what symbols are bringing you favorable outcomes and helping you to succeed. A good luck charm is based on positive energy and has been believed to diminish negativity or help you take full advantage of success. Many people swear that their luck has increased by wearing a specific item or by displaying a lucky symbol.
