    I don't understand: what is this "good luck"? I thought there is only one kind of luck, and I would never describe it as "good".

    I do not have one. After reading this article http://www.bakadesuyo.com/2015/07/how-to-attract-good-luck/ I'm considering giving one a try.

    "It looks like science is telling us that believing in luck might not only be the best way to be deluded, it might also be the key to a better life."

    Basically you are tricking your brain into being overly optimistic, which leads to taking more chances on things, which leads to some of them working out - more so than if you talk yourself out of taking a chance to begin with.

    Hard work and determination.

    So far it hasn't brought me much in terms of monetary results, but it sure feels good busting my ass for the things I believe in.
