• About Amir Lehrer

    I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".

    Getting lucky is often about getting out of your comfort zone and opening yourself up to new and different opportunities.  You can get lucky by listening to different people’s points of view and then looking at the situation from their perspective.  You can also get lucky by putting yourself in situations and locations that...

    They say that the world can be broken up into two types of people, “talkers” and “doers”.  In the online world, there are the talkers and the people who are too afraid to talk.  Everyone has something to say.  I’m almost positive that not a day goes by that you don’t have something to...

    When you sit down and turn on your computer, do you know exactly what you are about to do or are you just turning on your computer because it is something to do? I constantly find myself sitting down at my computer without a clear agenda and goal in mind only to end up...

    Get Lucky Because You Have Nothing Better to Do!

    Nothing Better to do

    Doing something because you “have nothing better to do” always seems to have a negative connotation.  You are bored and someone asks you if you want to go to the mall and your response is “okay, i’ve got nothing better to do”.  I personally think that doing something because you have “nothing better to...

    Have you ever accidentally sent an email before you wanted it to go out? Possibly you were in the middle of writing a sentence, pressed enter and voila, the email was sent. Sending unfinished emails or even worse accidentally sending emails that you might regret if you read them over can potentially hurt relationships...

    We all love shiny objects.  They are the newest thing in town that everybody is talking about.  The new toys, games, videos, business ideas, social platforms and more.  Who can forget (or maybe remember) Chia Pets, Virtual pets, yo-yos, hula hoops, hula hoops that count how many times they go around and so on....

    Everybody has heard the saying that “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” or something similar.  The traditional way of understanding the saying is that when you are holding a prize in your hand, you shouldn’t throw it away to find out what’s behind door number two.   Our subconscious minds...

    When I was about 7 years old, my class learned about the Titanic and how it ended up at the bottom of the ocean.  It was such a massive ship and the captain felt that a tiny little iceberg couldn’t do any damage to the Goliath of a ship he was conducting.  As any...

    The average person never sees his credit score or finds out about his credit’s health until he is about to make a big purchase such as a car or house or needs to take out a loan. At that point, they are often shocked at what they find out. Any late or missed payments...
