Ep #7 Feeling Lucky? Are You Even Trying?
May 24, 2021
Some people believe they can improve luck with a charm or a trinket. Are you one of them? Well, you might just have a point. Luck doesn't take the place of preparation and determination, but check out this episode to explore the connection between use of 'luck objects' and brain science.
If you want to read more about the work Dr Lisa Feldman Barret is doing, check out 7 and a Half Lessons About the Brain or check her TED talk.

Luck and the poker table is a tumultuous relationship. I definitely recommend Maria Konnikova's book, The Biggest Bluff if you want to hear more about luck from a psychologist's point of view.

As always, I'm not suggesting you buy through those links - support your favourite bookseller :)

Finally, I mentioned NLP quite a few times. If you'd like to try some NLP coaching, keep an eye on Coachora, as they have a number of completely free coaching sessions available each month, which get snapped up pretty quickly ;) . And it's a totally sales-free platform too.

I'm still on LinkedIn - come on over and connect! There's also the FB page for updates and info. And of course, you can hit subscribe to get details of new episodes as they're released. If you enjoyed the show, it would really help if you could leave a nice review on your favourite podcasting platform, thanks :)
