The Luck Factor

To some people, success is based on luck, a random whim of fate, a chance roll of the dice. But nothing could be further from the truth. Success, to a great extent, can be influenced by luck, but this is not to say that luck is an accident. Luck is predictable. With hard work, it can be controlled. By concentrating on several 'luck factors' - key areas of your life that in ...more

Shelves: junk
This is another one in the long list of Prosperity Gospels. Naturally, the prosperity is an exchange: the preacher gives a promise and the client sends the money to help the preacher grow prosperous. Brian has a soft voice, has anecdotes about people he supposedly helped, has a sad story of when he was down, before receiving the revelation. The personna and the text are terribly uniform with many others doing the same kind of inter confessional church work. Even the level of ignorance and the la ...more

A lot of generic information about working hard, working fast, and giving back. One practical tip that I got out of it is to always be congratulating people and look for things that people can be congratulated for. Mentioning if someone lost weight and got into better shape is a specific way of this.
A combination of positive psychology, financial planning, networking and general productivity. Although it is a good mix of elements of success, it doesn't offer anything revolutionary. It is however, very uplifting to listen to Brian Tracy (I had listened to the audiobook version). It has some concrete examples for those not familiar with self development.

This is an amazing book. Brian Tracey pulls together a bunch of personal development strings from multiple personal development guru's including Aristotle, Jim Rohn, Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, etc. He makes all of the wisdom whole and makes sense of all of them at the same time. I wouldn't say he has any new insight but the way he organised the information and the practicality he puts it in is amazing.

This is one of those Law of Attraction books, but I liked it anyway because it's so much more practical than those usually are.

Here's the thesis, as set forth by Brian Tracy:

In order to be successful (aka, "lucky") do the following:

Make goals.
Create plans for each of those goals.
Work hard.

Boom. There you go.

This is really sales/business focused, but I thought the discussions about making goals and plans and following your intuition and continuing your education in your field were really helpful.

This book tells you that there is no such thing as plain luck. If you do many different things then you are very likely to be at the right place at the right time.

This book tells you what are the differences between successful people and unsuccessful people.

Make sure you keep getting better and better at the things that you are GOOD at already.

What Brian calls luck is rather the foundation of your success in all walks of life: how to increase your chances of being the right person to meet the right opportunity. Nothing revolutionary per say but his practical approach about the law of attraction is refreshing. I listened to the audio version of the book and surprisingly to me, I didn't roll my eyes that many times.
Aug 24, 2013 Cindy rated it it was amazing
I discovered this book while I was still a student and it completely changed my view of life and the world.

The lessons in this audiobook have been the foundation to the successes I have achieved so far in my life. Whenever I am in need of motivation or have low energy, I always return to this book for inspiration.

Thank you Brian Tracy for creating this wonderful audiobook!

What some call luck is just a matter of preparation for success. Brian Tracy does a great job of explaining this along with the things that successful people do.

I have listened to a few of Brian Tracy's books and so far this is my favorite. I will certainly be listening to this one again.
