4 Do good deeds.

This will earn you some positive karma. It is important that you do these good deeds out of a sincere desire to help others. If you are only performing good deeds to win good karma and make your own life easier, the action is voided.

Well, people always say that if you do good things to others, someday, you'll get treated nicely.

To activate the good luck, stroke or rub the foot. The foot must be the left hind foot.

6 Find a four-leaf clover
7 Avoid getting your left arm/left leg dressed first.

This doesn't make any sense! How is this supposed to help you?! SOME PEOPLE JUST NATURALLY DO THIS AND NOTHING HAPPENS! How does knitting socks for your boyfriend, turning bread upside down, or picking up a knife bring bad luck? This is all superstition, which in most cases has been proven wrong. So what if people put things on using their left leg, arm, or WHATEVER THE HECK ELSE? They have a ' right to do that!
Sorry, I lost my temper there. BUT ALL THIS ISN'T RIGHT!

As a righty I don't, naturally. Nor do I take interest in bizarre superstitions. Or do I?!?! Do I?!?! WHERE'S THE RIGHT SLEEVE?!?! I'M LOSING MY SANITY! - PositronWildhawk

Avoid putting your shoes on a table

8 Avoid turning a bread upside down after it has been sliced.

Sorry, but how is this supposed to help me? I do this all the time and nothing happens -.-

9 Avoid knitting a pair of socks for your boyfriend.

Unless you are engaged, avoid this at all costs! - PetSounds

I don't KNOW HOW TO KNIT GaH o_O - AlphaQ

10 Avoid picking up the knife you just dropped.

I'll get EVEN MORE bad luck because my parents will be like "WHY YOU SO LAZY? PICK IT UP YOURSELF! " I would pick it up myself to avoid having to hear that from my parents.

Before you do that, you should clean off the blood of the victim you just murdered with that knife. Who carries a knife around with them, and then is so lazy they will let it fall out of their pocket! This is dangerous people! - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

If you ever drop a knife, picking it up yourself will bring you bad luck in money and love. You should ask someone else to pick it up for you.

Wait you'd then seem real lazy
