I think you have to say that some people make their own luck.
If you put your self in a situation to benefit by taking some risks and doing extra things it will pay off at some point. People will then say that you are lucky not knowing that you actually deserved it in the first place.
Jealousy and not understanding gets people the name of lucky and I think it can be a little unfair. People may say that you are lucky to get an upvote on Musing ,but if you take your time and answer something well and it is thought out that is not lucky.
I have had my fair share of luck in life but I also work hard so I think it is a bit of good karma and dedication. I feel that I deserve whatever luck comes my way with a positive attitude and a smile.
People always talk about luck as if it's some spiritual force that favours some people I see luck as the opportunity that was siezed at a particular time. Let me clarify with an example.
A friend of mine participated in a raffle draw/ contest the procedure includes you gathering 10 candy wraps and submitting it to the company then await your result .
On that day we waited but nothing came forth, one by one we left her with her roommate who insisted that they stay till the end. She was on her way to enter a taxi when her roommate called her to tell her that her raffle number has been called. She happily received her prize.
Now look at this scenario, all her friends said she was lucky but actually she didn't sit still and won the prize money from the candy company. She followed the due proceedures and waited till the show was over.
For unlucky people, I will use my analogy for lucky people to define them. These are people who failed to sieze opportunities at a particular time. Let me give an example of unlucky people.
When I was in high school, we usually go to the library during our free periods. Instead of reading our books we make noise, the noise usually starts small then it escalates attracting teachers to punish us. Now when the noise starts at a minimal level two of my classmates would leave the library hence preventing them from getting punished.
They were always regarded as the lucky boys and were never punished.
Finally I'll give an example from my experience. A month ago I nearly got hit by a car while crossing the street. I rushed out from my apartment and I didn't look both ways before crossing, while crossing somehow I realized my mistake and forcefully stopped myself midway and as I turned,, a car came from my lane and and grazed me a little and sped off. I felt so overwhelmed from the experience but all my neighbors told me that I was so lucky meanwhile if I hadn't stop I would've been hit.
The fate of people depends on many things. Fortune is dependent on man's actions. Some people are lucky since their childhood. Perhaps one of his family has been successful through his work. Therefore, he is lucky since his childhood.
But some people are unfortunate because they could not be successful through the action. Family made everything wrong. It is bad for this mistake. Sometimes misfortune comes in the lives of deceitful people.
Many times, fortunate or unfortunate people change by themselves. People's fate can change itself by trying.
When it comes to "being lucky or unlucky", it is otherwise the "maturity of your karmic account". Today what you called as luck is the result of what you did some time ago and that time span is not just limited to this life. it is about life after life. So karmic account of several life contribute to factor called "luck".
You might have seen some people who always do negative things to the society and also harm people, but every time they seems like lucky and they have a prosperous life as well, where as the person who is working word and doing his work ethically is just struggling like anything and luck factor is also not working for him. Here it could be possible that, the person who seems to be lucky might have done a lot of great work and his karmic account is so strong that he is still getting the benefit of it, as on date where as the honest person who is struggling may be because of his poor karmic account of past life.
That is why everyone advocates to keep your karmic account good. Always do good karma and always be honest and lead an ethical life, never hurt everyone, as far as possible help others.
There will be several lives and karmic account build up will take a lot time, so keep the basics correct, one day you will also enjoy the fruit of luck.
The world is a big place with a lot of people living in it. Luck is random. With large numbers of people, you are statistically likely to end up with a few very, very lucky and very, very unlucky people. It's the law of large numbers at work.
Karma. Nuff said
What works for one might not work for another, a person might search for luck elsewhere if his/her present environment isn't favorable.
Well, it's all depends on you how lucky you are. Every person in life they have own responsibility for everything thy happens into life. Luck is all about your best achievement in life that you earn by doing hard work day and night.
And bad luck person is also responsible for their own activities in life they do with yourself. Well, both bad and good luck are part of life. But only you can make it's bad or good. It does not have in your hand but only focus can give you a lot in life so try to always achieve good opportunities in life.
