Good Competition Karma and how you can earn it
If you’re a person who believes you make your own luck, then isn’t it highly probable you can ‘earn’ it too? Karma, in simple terms can be defined as good or bad luck, viewed as resulting from one’s actions. That is, your actions in the comping world can affect your luck and improve your results. Seems highly probable and possible to me.
Whatever your views, it doesn’t hurt to try and earn some good comping karma along the way. Whatever cant tip the odds in our favor, right?
So here are some ways you can start earning a visit from lady luck:
- Subscribing to the promoters mailing list. I’m often tempted to skip and uncheck the box that says ‘Subscribe to our newsletter!’ and if its not required in the terms and conditions, I often won’t do it but this is the perfect way to earn some good comping karma.
- Helping other compers out. Sharing is caring. Next time you see a fellow comper who needs help or a competition needs code words. Don’t hesitate or think twice, help your fellow compers out.
- Sharing competitions when you’re not asked to. Many competitions today require you to share in order to enter but I like to share the competition on social media regardless if I have to or not. Promoters like it and yes its good comping karma!
- Saying thank you to the promoter. I must admit, I love it when I see comments from people to the promoter saying thank you. It’s a nice gesture and good manners too.
There are many opportunities to earn good comping karma. The trick is to identify them and take advantage of them. Wishing lots of good comping karma to everyone!
