Luck isn’t just for the fortunate few—the lotto winners, backyard oil barons, and game-show champs. You can improve your own luck by taking a few steps in the right direction. So quit rubbing that rabbit foot bare, searching for elusive four-leaf clovers, or seeking vertically challenged leprechauns. Instead, take action, stay focused, and follow these words of wisdom from people who created their own winning streaks.
