What is luck? All of us at some point or the other in our individual life experiences must have felt lucky or some other point in time as unlucky. I think, every individual can have a unique concept of luck which he/she must have experienced through the life journey. It is also influenced by the concept that we must have developed through our growing years from our elders and parents. People wear or use all kinds of lucky charms, symbols to favour their luck. So, by luck, we usually mean an unknown, mystical force that comes unexpectedly and gives us the opportunity, or provides us with the situation, a circumstance in our daily chain of events which one can perceive as a good one or a bad one. So, when it comes to the probability of events, there are both equal chances of good luck or a bad one. As the Universal truth exists, that everything happens as the consequences of cause and effect. So, the predictability of the luck factor is based on chances or probability rather than accuracy. Therefore, this is quite complex.

Many Philosophers, psychologists and successful people have said, observed and written many books on luck. We must have already read a ton of them, yet the concept seems to lack clarity of thoughts.

Therefore, in trying to understand the concept of ” Luck”, I have come across 4 observations:

1. As the statement goes, ” The harder we work, the luckier we get”. This statement doesn’t seem to be wrong. When we have a clear vision, a goal in our head, and work harder on that particular task, a subject or a passion, we do get successful after some time. We keep putting our continuous effort, we come across opportunities, like-minded people and end up being very successful. We consider ourselves lucky then. Isn’t luck and hard work going hand in hand? But, this isn’t true for all the people. Many people end up doing hard work throughout life, in their area of work without much success. Do they carry bad luck? Or, were they not lucky enough to get the right kind of opportunity and meet the right people at the right time? Isn’t there is something more to know about this luck factor?

2. The word β€˜Luck’as originated from evolution time, as ‘locking together’ like (the cogwheel locking with one another and moving the cart forward). So, it can be the trigger of events influencing luck.Β Sometimes luck can be linked to the intuitive voice within us, guiding us to make the right decisions or pick up the right opportunity at the right time. Suppose, we are starting a business, or following a passion, a chain of trigger events can definitely lead to or most probably will give us good luck. It goes like this, if we attain the full expertise, complete knowledge about that particular area (attaining the skill and expertise), do active networking, meet the right kind of people, follow our intuition to pick the right opportunity, and being more enthusiastic, we end up being lucky, successful. Again, failure and success are both sides of the same coin as though being lucky and unlucky. I think all successful people have gone through great failures and bad luck through many eventsΒ though they were considered successful and lucky in the long run. So, the option is not to quit, but to keep putting continuous effort in the right direction.

3. Vibration: As the great scientist, Nikola Tesla said, “If you want to find out the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration”
Therefore, everything in this entire Universe, including us are in vibration. Every atom in our body moves in vibration. So, we must have noticed in our individual life that when we are sad, unhappy, depressed, we are in low-frequency vibration, we get sick easily, and bad things keep happening, bad luck seems to never leave us. But, when we are positive, happy, vibrant, we are in high frequency, good luck seems to attract our lives then. Again, Buddha said “What we think, we become”.Β In the same way, if we think and consider ourselves lucky, keep followingΒ our dreams, we seem to attract good luck. ButΒ yes, efforts and hard work are very much required in the process.

4. The well-known psychologist Richard Wiseman has written many books on luck like β€œThe Luck factor”. He has researched many people’s lives on this factor called “Luck”. He has rightly pointed to 4 Principles:
*Maximize whatever chances, opportunities that come.
*Listening to your consciousness, your intuitive voice (the little voice in your head) is important.
*Having a positive attitude towards life can turn even a bad thing or situation into a good one.
*Expecting good things to happen, remain positive in life.

After reading books and listening to various talks (Youtube) on luck, I have concluded that the luck factor or the thing called ” Luck” isn’t so unknown or mystical. Luck is very much within our control. We can attract luck in our life. The only important thing is being in the right state of mind. Not necessary, that we may get the right opportunity at the right time or meet the right people at the right time. Each one should consider oneself as lucky, having a positive attitude towards life. Acknowledging this, attaining the skill, putting continuous hard work and effort, being focussed on our goals, I think nobody can stop us from attracting good luck in life. We are bound to be lucky in life.

Thanks for reading.

Blessings and much love to all πŸ’

  1. Great post! Yes, it is so true… I had experienced it many times… and yes, it is a combination of hard work, vision, recognizing right opportunities, having right approach… and most importantly, engaging in creative process…because nothing moves first before you do it…i guess

  2. I worked very hard but in the wrong way. Didn’t get lucky there or did I? We never know what luck is, it’s in the present moment we can ‘judge’ the past. Judge is not the right word I want to use but my English isn’t sufficient here. I hope you get the gist of it.

    1. Yes, I agree, we all make mistakes in the past. Keep putting effort in the wrong direction. But, we also learn from our mistakes. Luck strikes when we carry our right attitude towards life, remain positive, keep putting hard-work with skill, keeping focus on our goals. Depending only on luck isn’t going to help. Anyway, thank you so much for reading 😊

      1. Thank you for your answer! I feel like I’ve learned a lot and I know now a lot more about the things I need and what direction I want to go. Now I need to get my loved ones in the same direction. The work is never done! πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Very interesting points. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I’m a firm believer that we β€œmake our own luck”. Another way to view this is we are in control of our own destiny.

  5. Thank you for sharing!.. I don’t depend on luck, I follow my heart… πŸ™‚

    β€œMy will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man’s doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze.. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny”. ( Elaine Maxwell)

    1. I am not sure either. Maybe, everything happen in this world is as the consequence of cause and effect. Anyway, thank you so much for your kindness and appreciation 😊

  6. Very interesting! I had never heard of how the word “luck” developed.

    As far as work making luck, I think there are two kinds of luck: one we make through effort and one we have no objective control over, spontaneous opportunities like happening to run into just the right person for advice or aid when you need it. Relying only on either one can cause problems. If we only wait for things to happen fortuitously, we may not be ready when an opportunity actually comes, However, if we mistrust chance, we may accidentally reject a good opportunity when it arises.

    1. I truely appreciate your opinion. Yes, it’s true that depending on luck doesn’t make us lucky. Hard work, skill , with right frame of mind are very much required. Rest, leave everything to the Universe. Anyway, thank you so much for your valued response 😊
