I don’t believe that luck is the primary means of how to attract wealth and good fortune.
Honestly, the thought that it does, contradicts almost everything I believe in.
For the most part, I do not think an individual’s wealth and good fortune is due to luck. But others disagree with me.
Warren Buffett attributes much of his success and wealth to luck.
In a guest post over at Retireby40, Sam from Financial Samurai wrote How Luck Plays A Huge Part In Becoming A Multi-Millionaire By 40.
In contrast, I have always believed that you make your own breaks. And, you make your own luck.
How To Attract Wealth And Good Fortune – Okay, You Need A Little Luck
There are a couple of areas where I think luck plays a role in attracting money.
Good Health Attracts Wealth
The first one is good health.
You need your health to build wealth. And some of us are predisposed to better health than others.
Furthermore, one’s family environment also plays a role.
There is that old saying that you can pick your seat, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your family. The good fortune to be born into a reasonably stable family environment is an important factor.
And finally, being brought into the world in a developed economy that promotes capitalism is important.
Unlike capitalism, socialism is where the means of production is controlled by the community as a whole. That probably isn’t the right environment to attract wealth and good fortune with money.
Where Luck Falls Short
So those 3 areas are where luck plays a role, in my opinion. But, if luck in those 3 areas were all you needed, wouldn’t most people be awash in money?
Millions and millions of people do have good health, come from a stable family and live in a society that supports capitalism. Yet, all I read and hear is the vast majority of people do not have enough money saved for retirement.
So, I still believe you make your own luck. And that blind luck has very little to do with attracting wealth and good fortune.
So let’s take action and attract wealth and good fortune right now. Here are 24 good luck tips for money.
How To Attract Wealth And Good Fortune – Your Mindset
Attracting wealth and good fortune all starts between your ears. So let’s set the right mental state to attract money.

You Must Believe That Wealth Is Good To Build Your Fortune
Think about wealth and money in a good light. Sometimes people with money are demonized by politicians and the media.
Most people that have wealth and good fortune are hardworking, upstanding people. There is nothing wrong with having money. So don’t think that way.
Wealth and Good Fortune Comes To Those Who Think Positively
Have a positive outlook. Look at the bright side of things. Don’t dwell on the negative. Practice positive self-talk when it comes to money.
By being positive you will attract better people to associate with. And those better people will help you on your journey to wealth and good fortune.
Be Grateful For What You Have
When I get down about something, I think about this phrase:
“I had the blues because I had no shoes; until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet.”
Enough said? Be grateful for what you have. And do not dwell on what you don’t have.
Good Fortune Comes To Those Who Are Humble
When you make it with money, I know you will be humble about it.
I’m going to pick on sales professionals now. If you are in sales, don’t get mad at me. You are the engine that drives business. But, I want to relate this brief story.
I had a co-worker who had a funny saying about sales professionals. When it came to money, he would say that sales pros “brag about making it and brag about spending it.”
I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand being around people like that. And of course, it’s not just salespeople who do it.
So, be humble!

There is an old saying that “patience is a virtue”. I think this saying gets challenged these days with smartphones and a 24/7 work mindset.
But when it comes to attracting wealth, good fortune and money, patience is critical. In fact, the average age of newly minted millionaires is 49.

Think Long Term
Patience comes in handy as it relates to long term thinking. So, avoid short-sighted decisions.
When it comes to your current job, your career, where you live and the people you surround yourself with, think long term.
Think In Terms Of Income Not Debt
Focus your thoughts on how to make more money.
Can you get a raise from your current employer? How can you position yourself for a promotion? Can you start a side hustle? Are your savings and investments earning the most that they can?
Turn your thoughts away from debt.
Outside of a home mortgage an auto loan and student debt, never think about debt to finance any other purchases. The only thought about debt that you should have is how to pay off existing debt faster.

Visualize It – Imagine You Are Rich
Think big. Don’t be limited by your thinking.
What will your life be like and look like when you attract wealth and good fortune?
I’m a bit of a worry wort. And it is not a good habit.
Based on my experiences, worrying has no value. Instead of worrying, take physical action. So, let’s talk about what actions to take next.

How To Attract Wealth And Good Fortune – Feng Shui
Feng shui is a Chinese metaphysical philosophy that brings harmony to an environment.
Good feng shui can bring you wealth and good fortune if you strive for it. It gives you the necessary support to seek your wealth and fortune.
Feng shui also helps suggest different methods to create a productive environment. Your home and office environment can strengthen you and attract the feng shui energies of prosperity and wealth.
Here are 3 feng shui tips for money luck.
Clear Clutter From Your Home
Keep your home free of clutter. Be neat and organized. When it comes to money, a little minimalism in your home goes a long way.
Prepare Your Money Area
Have a dedicated space where you think about your money and investments. This is typically a home office.
I’ve had a desk and home office space since my early 20’s when I was living in a studio apartment. It has always been a place where I keep all my financial documents, computer, personal finance books, and investment newsletters.
Create a Good Chi Flow
According to feng shui, a good chi flow brings upward moving energy with spaciousness, comfort, and calming rhythm. For example, make sure hallways are clear of clutter and objects. Put pleasant images on your walls.
To me, good flow and good spaces create inner peace. Inner peace helps me to be patient and think long term.
Mrs. DD and I recently got some tips on how to furnish and rearrange our living room. It has made a big difference. It’s a calming space to spend time.
Positive spaces and places will help you with the mental aspects of attracting wealth and good fortune that we have already discussed.

How To Attract Wealth And Good Fortune – Take Action
We have taken care of our Chinese philosophy lesson with Feng Shui. So, let’s look at a few other physical actions we can all take to attract wealth and good fortune.
Face The Facts
Get your financial facts together. What is your net worth? How much money do you spend and where do you spend it.
Do you have investments? Then, what are they and are they the right investments for your stage in life.
So, spend some time getting familiar with your personal finances. Do this activity in your feng shui money area.
Spend In Alignment With Your Values
Decide what you value in life. Is it travel, a beautiful home, delicious food, live entertainment?
I don’t know what it is for you. And what you value may change over time.
But whatever it is, spend money on what you value. And cut out spending in other areas of your life.
Share What You Have
Don’t forget to give back or donate to charities if that is something important to you.
Personally, I’m not big on giving away money. At least not yet. But some people swear by it when it comes to their wealth and good fortune.
As my mother used to say, “you get back twice as much in return as you give.” And my mother was always right. At least that’s what she told me!
Be A Minimalist
Minimize your belongings to only what you need and use. Be minimal with your finances by streamlining and simplifying them.
It is contradictory in some ways, but I like to say “minimize your finances to maximize your money”.
Free Yourself From Material Vanity
Buy what you need and want. But don’t consume just because others are doing so.
Act Upbeat Even When You’re Not
We already talked about the power of positive thinking when it comes to attracting wealth and good fortune. But sometimes, we can’t help being a little down.
When that happens, act upbeat. Stand up tall, put a smile on your face and act like you are the happiest person on the planet. Often times, our thoughts will follow our actions and your mood will brighten.
What do you want to be good at when it comes to making money?
I am going to exaggerate a bit here. But, if you have 2 jobs, 4 side hustles and are going to school part-time, you probably aren’t focused.
Choose 1 or 2 things to be really good at. Those things should be where you believe you can make money over the long term.
Work Your Tail Off To Attract Wealth And Good Fortune
Now that we are focused, it’s time to get to work.
This one did pretty well for me. I was never, ever the smartest guy in the room, but I almost always was the hardest working.
And it’s not just about working long hours, it’s about working smart too.
Work on the right things do those things the right way, and wealth and good fortune will start to find you.

Invest Money On Self-Improvement
Investing in continuous development is almost always a good place for your money. Be it books, classes, certifications or on the job training.
Just make sure your self-investment is aligned with your 1 or 2 money-making focus areas.
Take smart Risks
You probably won’t attract wealth by putting all of your money in a low-interest savings account. Or, staying in the wrong job for too long.
Some of your money belongs in risky assets like the stock market. And sometimes you need to change jobs to make more money. There is always a risk that these types of activities won’t work out.
So take some calculated risks with your money-making endeavors and investments.
Put Yourself “Out There”
We all, to some degree, fear failure and rejection. But you can’t insulate yourself from those things. Failure and rejection come with taking calculated risks.
Don’t fear failure. Embrace it. I like this saying, “when one door closes, another one will open”. I think it’s very true.
Identify and celebrate the little successes along the way.
I’m not so good at this one. I set a goal and work hard to accomplish it. But when I do, I tend to move on to the next thing.
Even if you are like me in this regard, from time to time sit back and reflect on your accomplishments.
