masses, writer karla starr claims to have luck down to a science, even naming her blog "the science of luck." you think you're lucky. >> yes, absolutely. >> it's that upbeat attitude that makes lucky people lucky, she says. think positive and things will turn out that way. >> lot of research showing that optimistic people do make their own luck because they have a higher self-esteem so they're more likely to persist after failure. >> take actor jon hamm who seemed to credit luck when he won an emmy last year. >> there has been a terrible mistake clearly. >> before he landed his starring role on "mad men" hamm had been acting in relative obscurity for more than a decade. he simply kept at it. >> all it takes is that one audition. >> so this is the science of luck? >> if we're lucky it will end up
being a little piece of it perhaps. >> for university of pennsylvania professor michael kearns this is what luck really looks like. >> this is basically a curve representing -- kept of representation of your pay off as a function of a probability of event. >> he writes algorithms designed to control luck. in investing. >> many people on wall street take a pretty scientific approach to thinking about luck and to shaping their luck. >> along with teaching, kearns works for a hedge fund coming up with luck shaping formulas, combining a stock's history with a client's appetite for risk. >> i'm going to compute what the optimal portfolio or mixture of stocks would have been to maximize your pay off. >> make me lucky. >> that's right, exactly. >> but the science of luck goes out to window when it comes to other get rich quick schemes we

>> the fuss all began with a series of chance occurrences. >> the mona lisa really only started to get famous in the last century. it sort of sat in palaces of kings for, you know, a couple of hundred years. >> so what changed? >> this young italian who was working at the louvre was apparently disgruntled that this, you know, masterpiece that rightfully belonged in italy was sitting in france so he stole it. it became this media fiasco and really drew a lot of attention to this painting. >> you're saying that absent that it might never have become famous? >> i suspect that ab isn't that it would never have become famous. >> the mona lisa got lucky. >> it did. >> but what about the actual painting. was leonardo on to something or is the moan felicia's fame just blind luck? i could do a painting. and, you know, no matter how much hype it goss, it's unlikely
it would be put in the same category with the mona lisa. >> it's not that the things that success said don't have to be good in some sense, many things are equally good and could equally have been as successful and we've never heard of any of those things. >> so if you could rewind the world and let luck play out again, watts says there might not ab mona lisa, or a bob dylan or harry potter. all of whom benefited from being at the right place at the right time. >> there's some random accident that happens early on. and then that builds on itself and that builds on itself. and then many years later we have this huge effect that we are unable to explain except by saying this thing is unique and special. >> do you think you're lucky? >> oh, absolutely. >> our cbs news poll found seven out of ten americans feel the same way. they are mostly lucky. and as luck would have it, that includes everyone we interview
