    By being unlucky a lot, perhaps...in other words, practice.
    By training oneself to look for the possibilities in a situation and not to concentrate on the limitations.
    By making good art.

    "Luck favors the well prepared" reminds me of another truism:

    What is success?

    Mozart is considered a genius but Justin Beiber made a whole lot more money. A hundred years from now Mozart will still be considered a genius but no one will remember Justin Bieber.

    Mozart was pushed into proficiency as a child. He continued to work hard and become even better throughout his short life. What has Bieber ever done that has enduring quality?
