Some people have better fortune than others. I think I have stinky luck most times. Ex) Today I went to get chips from the vending machine, and the chips got stuck :D
Yesterday-I went to school to study before an event but forgot my ID, so I went all the way to get it just to find out in the ticketing line that IDs were not required :D1

Luck is a thing but not as people know it.
There are two kinds of luck.
The first kind.
The universe is like a pendulum. If your starting position is slightly different , then the path taken by the pendulum would be wildly different.
That's the basis of hard determinism. That we as individuals have no power to control our fate , that it is all decided.
However from a compatibilist perspective where we take into account of freewill. The pendulum has the power , the free will to make a conscious decision , to apply a force , a thrust to change his/her trajectory which would ultimately change the trajectory taken by the pendulum.
To apply it back to life.
We are all born in different places in life.
Some are born to millionaires , some are born in a ghetto.
Some are born in happy families , some are born in broken ones.
Some are born beautiful , some are born less so.
That's our "luck" but does that mean it's the end of the story?
No because we have the power to change our trajectory in life.
Here comes the second kind of "luck" , the luck that we make.
To change our trajectory and be prepared for the opportunities that we may meet in life. Luck rewards those who are prepared. Those who are persistent and patience.
When luck and luck comes together. You'll create something... beautiful.
