    Do you think some people are just born UNLUCKY?

    Why does life get so difficult sometimes? Are some people just born unlucky? Is there anything that we can do to change this bad luck? Or do you think some people are just born unlucky???

    there is no such thing as a vixen or unlucky person, it is just the way the person does that affects his doings

    Yes! A person born in Beverly Hills, CA and another person born in Somalia are the result of luck. None of gets to choose their parents or where they are born. Those are the cards we're dealt!
    Having said that it's not where you start off but where you end up that counts. History is filled with people who overcame severe disadvantages to lead happy, successful, productive lives.
    Success leaves clues!
    I believe the first step is to read biographies or study what people did to elevate themselves. If two people follow the same exact recipe they're likely to get similar results.
    One has to truly (believe) they can do better.
    It's one thing to have a dream and another thing when the dream has you! Ambition, determination, persistence, along with education and networking with (like minded people)  while avoiding the "traps" such as criminal activity, unplanned pregnancies, choosing the wrong mate, using drugs or excessive alcohol can go a long way towards changing one's life. Also knowing how to say "no" to people who will pull you down. This includes family and friends.
    Life is a (personal) journey.
    Our lives are for the most part the end result of the choices and decisions we have made along the way.
    No one is "stuck' where they are!
    If you want something different you have to do something different!

    It begins to make sense from the standpoint of Re-incarnation and the immortality of the Soul. This is not our first and last life, and the Soul carries into the present the sum experiences, of its last life. (Sanchita Karma).

    All things have an action and a reaction; a cause and an effect. While Karma is quite complex, in most cases, the Soul is reaping the result of its past action. (Prarabda Karma or Destiny (Fate).

    There is hope, though. In answer to you question, can we change bad luck, Spiritual Masters of the Highest Order, teach that Grace is the last word, and that the Supreme, or indeed a Spiritual Master of the Highest Order, can and does change Destiny, if it is the Will of the Supreme.

    That last part is most important. Grace, accompanied by an indomitable will, is crucial. Come back to me if you need further info. Much Peace.

    This could highly depend on the individual persons beliefs in life. I believe some peoples circumstances in life can be UNFORTUNATE, but not unlucky. We all have the option to sit and wallow in self-pity or stand up and take action in our lives. Unfortunately, some people may not understand that this is an option for various reasons! Great question!

    Of course not. And the word lucky is just for Chinese. What we should say, instead, is that we are all born blessed. Being born is in fact already a big blessing.

      Yes being born can be a blessing itself. Thank you.

      "the word lucky is just for Chinese." Really?
      For some people being blessed and lucky are one and the same. They're interchangeable synonyms which have nothing to do with national origin, culture, or race.
      Blessed is a religious term.
