Luck 🍀and miracle are two fascinating phenomena … but I would like to talk about luck for now and spare miracle this time.
Do you believe in luck ? Do you believe yourself to be lucky?
Even though most of us try to portray ourselves as rational and like to say “I believe in hard work” , many a times without realising we hope for benevolence from that unknown corner in our deciding moment. Some call it hope, faith or its in a way seeking for favor or luck.
Often I wonder what is the funda of “luck“. Is luck the forgery done by destiny to get a destined result? Is luck something completely abstract and totally controlled from the other world or is it something more realistic which is under the control of human beings.
Is the probability of luck ½? (Equal chance of winning and losing )
There are moments when we feel the whole universe is conspiring against us.
but then I persuade -“who the hell am I? A tiny particle and still dare to believe the whole universe has time to spare for me! “.
Which makes me wonder why do some believe themselves to be lucky and others believe to be unlucky .Does that extra favoring from unknown sources or powers really favor some?
This is the reason why I tried to make a logical understanding of it. I have NO intention to give something like” 5 tips to be lucky”, cos I have none .
Instead just sharing few things which were noticed.
One thing I have observed is people who basically believe to be lucky don’t dissect past events and regret. They take things in their stride therefore they concentrate on what is available and make best use of it than bothering about what they were seeking. They are more relaxed and make use of intuitions effectively .They are confident and ready to take risk which provides them with new openings and use them to their advantage.
Whereas the other half try to scrutinize things when something go out of their schedule and try to find follies .They concentrate on things what they could have achieved rather than paying attention to what is in their kitty. Over a period they start concentrating in negative perspective and it affects their confidence. Anxiety makes them under confident to take risk and they miss on opportunities by playing safe.
Sometimes I feel life is all about choices, some we make knowingly and some by default .Each event is a lucky draw, right from place of birth, to parents, to everything you keep drawing things from eternity the infinite pool. The favorable draws definitely vary from individual to individual and are not fully in our control, but our thoughts are. The feeling of being lucky/ unlucky is a result of cumulative thought process. So try to accumulate the positives and believe things can happen in your advantage even if it meanders from your plan in mind. As Tennessee Williams said, “Luck is believing you’re lucky.”
Would definitely like to get your view and opinion on this topic.
