What exactly is luck? How can one define luck?
People are often quick to say ‘I’m lucky ‘or ‘I’m not a lucky person’.
Well what is luck? I could say that-
“I’m lucky to have my daughter”
or I could say
“She’s lucky to have me”, or – “we’re lucky to have each other”
You could say you were lucky if you found £5 on the pavement, but that is and isn’t luck, it certainly isn’t lucky for the person who lost it!
I think people are wrong about luck.
Most people assume that luck is something you get; well I think you should consider that luck is something that you don’t get!
There’s an epidemic… you don’t get it, therefore you are lucky.
Another example: you could get ready to travel for a weekend break in a lovely city but something stops you from going – you assume its bad luck.
However, then something unexpected happens in the city and it turns out that you were lucky never to have gone.
Luck is what you don’t get.
I don’t have a one-track mind and if you look at luck in both ways too, not just in the sense that luck is about receiving something good, you can turn a negative event into a positive one.
I would say a good definition of luck is “chance”.
But also consider it as something you don’t get.
How to turn a negative into a positive
For instance if you were in love with someone and they went off with someone else you may be thinking that you’ve lost the love of your life, but, it then turns out that they good, therefore you are lucky to have lost them!
Luck is frequently what you don’t get and to a certain extent you make our own luck. Most of us define luck as being something good that happens to us, but luck is often something which at the time you consider to be not good, but turns out to be just the opposite.
Things that could have happened didn’t happen, or things that you wanted to happen didn’t, but the outcome turns out to be good!
Luck is often something you don’t recognise at the time, so with this in mind look at the positive side of things and consider how lucky you really are! After all our thoughts and behaviours are responsible for most of our luck.
Accept chance there’s not much you can do about it anyway!
