Certain people appear to be born with more inherent luck than others. You may have a family member who consistently wins on scratch cards, a coworker who consistently receives promotions and accolades at work, or a buddy who has a once-in-a-lifetime event that only one in a million people have. Some people appear to always be at the right place at the right moment, and they always seem to be blessed. Is luck or using crystals for luck, however, a creation of belief or does it exist at all?
It Is True That Luck Exists
Luck, according to the Cambridge English dictionary, is “the force that causes things to happen to you by coincidence and not as a consequence of your own work or abilities.” Many people believe that luck is something you’re born with and that it’s influenced by a higher power. That some people are simply fortunate or unfortunate.
There is no such thing as luck.
Many individuals believe that luck is a misguided idea that does not exist. It all comes down to your point of view and how you see the world around you. They believe that everything is dependent on probabilities, and that in order to achieve your goals, you must have a positive mindset and attitude, making you appear ‘fortunate,’ but that there are no lucky individuals.
Let’s start with the concept of probability, using the previous example of a family member who consistently wins at scratch cards. What number of cards did they buy? The more they purchased, the more likely they were to win. Even if they only buy one scratch card each week, they are still contributing to the ‘lucky drawer’ momentum, in which someone has to win. And, of course, someone who buys scratch cards on a regular basis will always appear to be winning compared to someone who buys one once a month.
Second, some individuals think that having a happy attitude, following healthy habits, and taking responsibility for your actions helps you appear to be a ‘luckier’ individual. They think that having a positive mindset leads to better fortune. “We don’t become great by chance,” David Schwartz once said.
