Read about an article on how you can improve your luck and be luckier than most. Turns out being lucky is just being able to spot opportunities better or faster than the other guy around you. Its also a state of mind in the sense that it is more about feeling lucky than actually being lucky.
Having a positive outlook on life and the situations that you are in can be the big deciding factor of success or failure. Being positive also helps you appreciate where you are at right now more than regretting where you could have been.
Be open and positive about life, you never know how bad others have it until you realise how good you are living it.
wish me luck
