LIQUID LUCK: Creating our own good fortune
To what extent are we the masters of our own fortune? Can we create our own luck? Dr Matthew Smith explores a range of psychological research that suggests that luck may not be the uncontrollable beast it first appears! By rethinking what luck is, is it possible to tame it… and even learn to be lucky? Matthew draws upon work conducted as part of his PhD research on the psychology of luck over twenty years ago, and combines this with some of the most recent findings from the growing discipline of positive psychology. What emerges is a potentially powerful way of managing ‘luck’, both good and bad.
More about Matthew Smith
Matthew is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Bucks New University where he is co-Course Leader for the MSc Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP), which he has been instrumental in delivering and developing since its inception in 2012. Recent work explores how ideas within positive psychology might impact upon people’s experiences of ‘luck’. This work has created a personal style that is focused on the spontaneous, unplanned and exciting aspects of life that we may miss or overlook if we do not stay open to them.
