        The author of that article needs to spend some time around race tracks, sports books, casinos, and lottery players.

        Hey professor = Quick Pick Jackpot winner, explain that one.

          I dont think the point of the article was that people dont get lucky sometimes - as is the case with QP winners - but that to some extent one creates ones own luck in life.

          The one and only time I went to the track I won big on the very first bet I placed. Before each race they walk the horses around a circle so you can check them out. As one horse walked by me it looked right at me and sorta nodded (i know sounds kinda weird..but my two rather conservative friends saw it as well). Of course I bet on that horse and won (BTW it was a 10-1 longshot).

          I think sometimes luck leaves clues to those that are open and paying attention.

            It's the law of attraction, I do it constantly and I love the benefits of it. I got 2 jobs from what most would call pure chance and lucky circumstances. I walked into both expecting a job and both managers hired me on the spot...It's amazing although I got fired from both, I just know another job is waiting for me to take on. When I something doesn't go my way i don't go home and weep about it, I go out and look for another opportunity to take advantage of.

            Works every, single, time!
