About the Holiday

Thomas Jefferson once said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." On Make Your Own Luck Day do just that by being open to new experiences and opportunities. Don't be stuck in a routine. Set a goal and work hard for it. Don't accept defeat and take risks. Richard Wiseman, head of a psychology research department at the University of Hertfordshire in England, says he's cracked the code "Luck isn't due to kismet, karma, or coincidence, he says. Instead, lucky folks — without even knowing it — think and behave in ways that create good fortune in their lives".

More quotes about luck:

  • "Luck is believing you’re lucky." – Tennessee Williams,
  • "Diligence is the mother of good luck." Benjamin Franklin
  • "Luck is not chance-It’s Toil-Fortune’s expensive smile Is earned-" — Emily Dickinson
  • "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." – Seneca
