                Lucky Streaks Part Two 

Okay, let me show you how to harness the secret power of luck, which can be applied to just about every situation or repetitive event in life.

The million dollar question --What would you have done if you were up $25,000 in a casino; 
Would you have the guts to get up from the table and leave?   Probably not, just being honest, right?  If you missed Part One click here. 

 "Vanity is my favorite sin, it gets them every time." - Al Pacino

And that's the way it is in life, we have to know when it's time to get up from the table and leave; when to start something and when to end it. 

It is the difference between success and failure. Every thing we do is predicated on luck, and we all
 get our fair share. 

            Thunder only happens when it's raining."- Fleetwood Mac

         Lucky Streaks only happen after a Series of Bad Events Occur

Now most people view a series of bad events as bad luck,
 but look at the acronym: B-A-D stands for Break After Difficulties which leads to a Series of Good Luck. 

This book contains some very powerful material, I suggest that you read it several times to get a full understanding.

Take and digest it slowly.    

This book is designed as a way to improving and understanding the daily events that occur in your life, so savor every word.   

        Simply Put - It Will Change Your Life

What if you could anticipate with a certain degree of  accuracy when something good or bad was going to happen to you.  

Could that make you a better-- Author, Internet Marketer, Blackjack Player,
Stock Investor, Businessman, Doctor, Lawyer or a better Person?

If you're re looking to make a Lifestyle change this is the spark that's 
ignites the dynamite.   
And if you really want to delve deeper read: 

Fooled by Randomness:  The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets, Nassim Nicholas Taleb   

Okay, enough pre-talk lets get started.  It's that time of the year again - football and basketball season.

Fans are anxious about how many games  their team will win this year.  

 I'm concern about how many consecutive games in a row they will win or how many consecutive games in a row they will lose.  

 tracking and measuring  the results, I've learned how to make the magic of lucky streaks work in business and in every aspect of my life.

No, I'm not a professional sports gambler like Billy Walters,  who made millions  by using the magic of lucky streaks.

I discovered that Lucky Streaks occur every where and in every business 
activity or repeated sequence of events:  the stock market, casino,sports, card games, monopoly, lottery, and  even professions like;  dentists, surgeons, attorneys, and actors.

Everyday  people have streaks of good and bad things that happen.   But most people never pay much attention to such things, and it would be unheard of for someone to keep records of their daily events.   

Well, that's exactly what you have to do if you want to benefit from the magic of lucky streaks.  

You must write down every time a negative event occurs in 
your life (anything that causes you physical pain or disturbance of mind) 
and write down all the good events that occur. Anything that causes you pleasure or piece of mind) 

You must  keep records for 60 days like a journal with date and time.  
See my journal CLICK HERE.   

You are looking for patterns that show when you have a string of  
bad events in a row that something positive is about to happen.

On average, a person has  2 or 3 strings of good or bad events that occur in a row.  

Your human mind and body couldn't emotionally handle a string of 10 negative events in a row on a consistent basis; and your ego couldn't handle 10 positive events in a row. Too many wins make you feel invincible that lead to carelessness, and too many negative events lead to depression.But either way, your quest is  to discover your string or pattern.

        The Universal Pattern that Governs the World. 

                                   80/20 Rule

Eighty per cent of the time you will have one  event negative and  the next occurrence will be positive. 

Streaks  of negative or positive  events happen  20% of the time. The average streak lasts 4 consecutive times in a row.

Read the above line again and make a mental note.  


What can you do with such valuable information?   

  It's like having the key to the Matrix. 

Mary Jane won 25K playing BlackJack because she gradually increased her bets as  the consecutive losing streaks increased; at five losing hands in a row she doubled the bet size every other hand.   Why?  Because the longest recorded winning or losing streak on record in Blackjack  was 12 hands in a row.  That's pretty much the benchmark for any consecutive streaks.  To have 12 wins or losses in a row of anything is pretty remarkable and rare.  Flip a coin and see the results, or record the first twelve things that happen in your personal life  and determine how many were good and bad.
Now most people who are ignorant of this magnificent pattern, do just the opposite. They bet big when they're on a winning streak, not realizing that's when they're at the biggest risk of losing. Because with each winning hand you are closer to losing. Remember 80% of the time when you win one hand then the next hand you lose.  So you must anticipate and bet on winning or losing streaks and not on the event itself, unless it involved a thorough analysis of past performance.  

Classic Example

Wichita State #1 seed, was the only undefeated team in the 2014 NCAA Tournament and  lost in the final seconds to Kentucky #8 seed.  Why, did they lose?  
They had won 35 games in a row --it was time for the STREAK to end.  You should have placed your bet on Kentucky because Wichita State had 35 consecutive wins. With each win, Wichita State was getting closer to a loss.  So, each game you would bet that they would lose, and gradually increase your bet every time they won.  Get the point?

Let's look at  another way--80% of the time when you win one sequential event then expect to lose the next event. (Hand, game,  thing, or whatever you want to call it.)  And  if you have one bad thing happen to you, then expect the next thing that happens to be something good.  
Folks, it happens 80% of the time that way--prove it yourself- keep a journal. I'm not here to try and convince you.  I'm just trying to make you aware--the rest is up to you.

This strange phenomenal pattern holds true with events that occur in any business or everyday life.   

You will have something bad  happen like your car breaks down and then the next thing that happens is your boss gives you a raise. Eighty Percent of the time that's pattern--one good thing  and then something bad or the reverse.

                                  Here's the Secret

Professional gamblers bet on streaks and learn how to anticipate them.
Lucky streaks occur 20% of  the time --streaks of consecutive good or bad things that  happen everyday, whether in your personal or business life that causes joy and pain.   

When you have 3 bad things occur consecutively-- know that you are closer to something good happening.   And if you have had a series of wonderful things happen to you then expect something's not to your liking is about to happen.

Just like the sun rises in the East and sets in the West and the birds fly South and the Salmon swim upstream to spawn, there is a pattern in your personal and business life.  Knowing this information, you can predict or anticipate any situation better giving you a competitive edge or peace of mind that  good and  bad things will always happen.

Scientists have used the Pattern strategy to make some amazing discoveries.

“Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results.  It's the only way to find what works!"  Thomas Edison

Why, man, I have gotten lots of results! If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward.... Thomas Edison

Adversity is your friend and success is your enemy -- because you didn't know it was through a series of lucky streaks or events that  got you there in the first place. 

The stock market 80% of the time and  individual stocks are up
1 day, and down the next; and the remaining 20% of the time 
the market or stocks have streaks of consecutive up or down days

So, I built a trading strategy around "luck" and its cousin Lucky streaks" 
and  achieved a return on investment in 2010, 43% and 2011, 51%. 

Now, I don't want you to think this a crock of shit I'm feeding you, especially for those of you that have read this far.  So let me, show you my stock portfolio and you decide if this strategy is worth your time.  Click Here.  

            I Rather Be Lucky than Good

I learned early in life that I rather be "lucky" than good.   

Although skill, knowledge, and ability played a supporting role, 
luck was always present and had the last word.

I suffered only four minor losses out of 200 or more trades, 
even at times when I deployed cash inappropriately luck was on my side.  

The times that I was the most nervous, was the times that I 
made, the most money. 

I realized by just playing the strategy it wasn't important whether 
I was right or wrong....the strategy and luck took care of the results

There were several times that I  captured 10-20 point gains, and 
repurchased the same stock the same day below my original
buy point, and sold it again the same day for another 10 points.

Although, I'm not a day-trader that sits all day watching my 
computer screen, I am committed to taking profits whenever 
I have them before the market takes them away.

I know most people don't believe in luck.   

That's because luck will fool most people into believing that it 
was their intellect, or ability that made them successful and luck
had nothing to do with it


I remember a couple years ago watching a CNBC special, 
Question and Answer session with Warren Buffet and Bill Gates 
at Harvard  University Business School, when a  graduate student 
walked to the microphone and asked Bill Gates, "How much did 
luck play in the success of Microsoft?"  Video

Bill Gates answered, "More than what it should have."  
ow there's an honest man that's not fooled by luck.


                 It's Real Science...Not Fiction 


Blind Luck- comes in the form of good and bad luck. It is defined 
as a force that brings good fortune or adversity; or a set of random
events, or circumstances that work for or against an individual.

Lucky Streaks- a series of random events that are continuous for 
a period of consecutive days, or consecutive years of wins or 
losses in a row. 

There is no way to predict when it begins or ends or an explanation 
or numerical equation to explain the occurrences.

From my years of study and observation, it appears that blind luck
isn't a discriminator of persons.

It favors the skilled and the unskilled equally so. It's like the metaphor, 
"even a trash can gets a steak every now and  then,"  which  means even a novice can have beginner's luck and win a single event, like  throwing a  lucky punch in the last round that knocks out the champion.

But blind luck in its raw state can not form a string of  consecutive 
wins in a row sustained over a period of time, without the help of 
some other factors. 

And as gamblers, which we all are whether you admit it or not, we gamble with our heath by eating the wrong foods Gluten; we gamble when we live to go to work that we will return safely to our families

So in reality, we are all gamblers.  The difference between me and you
is that I accept it and I look for ways to better the odds  by looking for consecutive wins.

Now enter Blind Luck's cousin "Lucky Streaks."  Lucky Streaks favors a certain set of skills, ability, hard work, passion, experience, instincts, and discipline that must be present at the time of the occurrence. 

It also contains other known and unknown elements that are conducive for consecutive wins or losses in a row to be sustained over a period of time.

Some Lucky Streaks are so extreme and rare in nature that they
occur as anomalies

For example, University of Connecticut's Women basketball 
team winning streak of 90 games in a row that ended on Dec 31,
2010 by Stanford University.

The University of Connecticut streak surpassed UCLA's Men 
Basketball team 88 games in a row, which ended Jan 1974.


UConn's coach, said it best, "to win that many games in a row 
required ability, hard work, and "luck."

I have come to realize in a humble way that luck plays a major role in 
the stock market, sporting events, or any profession that engages 
in repetitive or random activities.

To take advantage of lucky streaks, you must position yourself in 
favorable situations and be in sync with the market...believing the 
market is always right.

When you're out of sync you'll find yourself  hoping, forcing, and struggling....   setting up for a streak of bad luck.

Although it's impossible to predict when "luck" or "lucky streaks" will occur, being aware of such events can help develop a gambling instinct that becomes an enormous "edge" when trading stocks or any other activity in life.   

Nassim Nicholas Taleb said,  "Luck is always present and always has the last word."  To understand this saying, is the key to making 25-50% returns.    

Now for everyone who loves statistical analysis and historical information the next chapter is for you.  

 first, I want to say one last word about  "Shh! 
KISS ME BABY" and let you know what the publisher WH BONE Publishing, thought of it-- not that it makes any difference to you, because, in the end, everyone knows what turns them on--I just thought you might want to know.   

When I read the manuscript I immediately told the author it's a love story that touches your heart and soul  I fell in love with the liberated character of Mary Jane and found myself wishing for a dream girl like her. She's a thrill chaser and likes to live on the edge, and do dangerous things.  But I also sneakily wanted to be like Buddy Brown the flamboyant playboy who's the modern day version of Hugh Heffner. 

Shh! Kiss Me Baby has a juicy plot and non stop excitement.  I couldn't resist the temptation, to ask the author for his favorite scene.
He said, "There were so many, it's hard to choose one, but if pressed I would pick the scene that follows the Lena phone call to Mary Jane.  It's a scene that will make you blush in secret.

If you like juicy, romantic, suspenseful with a taste of ZANE, then you will love this book.  Sign up for Notification and Promotional price Click HERE
