Its underlying message is that for people to experience a shift from good to better, they have to take action. If a person would like to increase the number of his/ her connections (say in LinkedIn or Facebook), he/ she has to stick her neck out.

When I was on vacation between October and November last year, my friend invited me to join her and her friends for a night of salsa dancing. I have never danced salsa in my life.
Basic steps were taught before the actual dancing began. But no matter how many practice partners I had, I still couldn’t salsa dance properly.

No one really cares if you turn left or right or sway like a dry twig on a hot summer day. What’s important is you grabbed the chance to enjoy yourself and meet a few interesting people along the way.
Do you have tips for generating or increasing good fortune? Please share them.
