Get Lucky and Win More Sweepstakes

Have you ever wondered if you can improve your luck?
Why does one person get sick while another stays healthy? Why does one person seem to find wealth and prosperity everywhere, while another never succeeds at anything? Many believe that the answer is luck.
In order to win sweepstakes, Lady Luck has to be on your side. For your name to be the one to be picked out of hundreds or thousands of entries takes a little push from chance. Here are some of the ways that people use to improve their luck.

1. Positive Thinking Attracts Luck
If you are the type of person who believes that the glass is half full, not half empty, than you're already familiar with positive thinking. Studies have actually shown that being optimistic can relieve stress and help you live longer. But can it help you to win sweepstakes, too?
Absolutely. One of the most challenging aspects of entering sweepstakes is that nagging feeling that you will never really win - or that you will never win again. It's hard to enter sweepstakes day after day with no guarantee that you'll win - and it's nearly impossible to keep it up if you have a negative attitude about it.

2. Accentuate the Positive with Visualization
Visualization is a technique where you picture yourself experiencing a desired event, which helps you work out the steps to make that event happen. In terms of sweepstakes, we think about winning a prize - we feel ourselves win the prize that we're dreaming about - and use that visual image to fuel our drive to win.
If you're familiar with the old Bing Crosby song, "Accentuate the Positive," it offers a similar concept. To quote the lyrics:
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium's
Liable to walk upon the scene.
In other words, focus on the positive aspects of sweeping to keep charged up and motivated to win more.
