When Anne Strieber wrote about the Lucky Lady, she also mentioned her interview with UK psychologist Richard Wisemen, who tried to figure out why some people are luckier than others. In one of his experiments, he took videos of people who said they were lucky?and others who said they were UNlucky?all doing the same things. One of these “tests” was to see if they noticed money lying in the street (carefully planted in the path they would take by Wiseman). Just as you’d expect, the unlucky people walked right by the money without seeing it, but the lucky ones spotted it every time. The message he took from this was that lucky people are the ones who take advantage of their opportunities. Keep reading for Anne’s update!
In her update, Anne Strieber writes: “I went to the farmer’s market today, and there was the Lucy Lady, right where she always is. We exchanged some pleasantries and then she said, “I called out to you last week but you walked on by and didn?t see me.” In light of Wiseman’s findings, it made me realize that I may be ‘walking right by’ some opportunities that I should be seeing?so the Lucky Lady taught me a lesson, and maybe I will be luckier in the future.”
