  • Luck is something I am facing uncertainty with finding a resolute answer to. My rational side would immediately suggest no due to the lack of evidence. However, I am wondering whether or not the ideas of mental magnitism might include that luck can be summoned through optimistic beliefs. Its so far something I can't substantiate a positive claim to but regardless I hold onto a hypothesis that it may be true.

      I can see what you’re saying—- luck could just be an optimistic perspective of events.

      I actually tried it a bunch recently. I told myself after getting fired Id have no trouble getting another job and the next day got a phone call by my old boss that heard I got fired. So that was eary. Still could just be coincidence.

  • Coincidences, not luck. Say we have a coin? Does a coin suddenly act differently depending on who's holding it? No. The same forces are being applied when a flip is made [of course ignoring all tiny little differences of the initial state], but the coin is just as likely to get heads versus tails.

  • Luck = Preparation + Opportunity

    Although you have no control over the opportunity aspect of luck, you can maximize your chances of receiving luck by making certain you are sufficiently prepared for any opportunity that might be afforded to you.

  • There are forces that work in ways that we can not fathom. And some rarely ever looked at. For example. One third of the sensory motor cortex of the brain is devoted to the tongue, oral cavity, the lips, and speech. In other words, oral frequency emissions spoken, or sung, exert powerful control over life, vibrating genes that influences total well-being and even evolution of the species

  • sometimes things happens because you meet the good person on the right place and good moment, that is luck

    i believe you can stimulate your luck by beeing more open to others, telling them what you're looking for job's opportunity for example. Who know, mybe it will make him remind a friend of his cousin who is looking for someone in this kind of work etc

  • we humans like to rationallize everything, pattern seeking did so much good for survival back in tge age that we kept it and overuse it still.
    luck is either a consequence off heritage (money looks brains) OR a consequence of hard work sacrificing years (grit). not even the first case is of any coincidence, just a straight result of survival of the fittest genes which happened to be from rich and/or pretty people's genepool. i think.

  • Luck is based on thousands and thousands of factors. Let’s say that you’re a neurotypical and you see a roadside beggar and you feel for him but he turns out to be a thug and takes all your money, it wouldn’t be the same for me because I’m not a neurotypical and I wouldn’t feel any empathy for him that would allow me to help him anyway. Here you can say that I was lucky that I got saved by my genetics.

  • in my understanding "luck" describes a person by chance experiencing lots of coincidences that end up in situations that we'd see as positive for them. coincidence still stays a completely random thing.

  • In business there is no luck, in the circumstances in which We are born and our genetic traits there are.
    You can set up an opportunity friendly environment by continually enforcing great habits.

  • Well, let me tell you something. I don't intend to brag, but...
    I didn't get a position of lecturer on my master studies, and I didn't get scholarship for doctoral studies because of luck/coincidence.
    I got both because over the span of last 9 years, throughout high school and later university I've worked my ass off to accomplish something.

    As my automation and control theory professor would say: "Some people spend their parents eloquence to get something, and some people spend countless sleepless nights. At the end of the day, those who become tired of all those sleepless nights are people who are able to change the world for the better, while the others serve as clowns for the rest of us."

  • OK, both of those quotes are garbage. Let's start with that.
    There is no such thing like luck. Only probability and people, who don't understand it.
    Imagine this. You have stack of papers. Like…50 A4s. You throw them up to the air. What is the chance of them landing in perfect stack? No, no, it is possible. It really is.
    But it will never happen. I'd bet my life on it. You can try and try and…the universe dies with heath death or big rip earlier than you succeed.
    Same with life. You want some events to happen. But there are so many other options, making the one you want unlikely.
    Now, do you understand, why I say this universe is stacked against you? This is it.

  • Luck, my cousin was picked out of a stadium of people and won a prize, not once but twice, but she also died in her 30s. So good luck and bad luck.

      I hit the wrong button. Lol. We all have choices all the time. What choice we make determines what will come next.

  • I think we make our own luck. Always be prepared and have a positive mind set

  • The only place I believe in luck are places where you are technically involved in probability. For example rolling dice, dealing cards, and any kind of lottery or drawing.
    The rest is purely destiny and runs like a thread through your life. I don't mean you can not change or shape your own destiny, but if you don't take charge for any reason, or just drift, it WILL take a course of it's own.
    And I think this course depends a lot on the genes you have inherited, the family you are born to, and your birth order, and your birthplace.
