In the programme, a simple question was posed 'have you heard about the lucky dog statue?'. Rumour spread, and so did stories of luck achieved by petting the ‘lucky dog’. People put rational thought aside , drawing cause and effect where there isn't one.
BUT it became apparent that if you do something that you believe has granted you luck it will affect your behaviour. The more open you are to opportunities, the more you engage with the world around you, more things will happen to you therefore more good things will happen, and you will be more aware of these good things happening. therefore you become luckier.
