    No we make our own victories through planning or  hard work.

    I used to but I think destiny overrules all forms of luck.  If it is destined to happen it will happen no matter what .

    I think luck can only be expressed truthfully in the past tense.  If i roll three 7s in a row I can say I was lucky and be telling the truth.  If i pick up a pair of dice and say I am going to roll three 7s I am probably deluding myself.
    So as an expression of chance being in ones favor for past exploits luck is a apt description but for a prediction of future favor it would be unlucky to bet on it wink.

    Yes, I totally believe in luck. Some of us get bad luck and others of us get good luck. However, I also believe we have something to do with it ourselves.
    Are we lucky to have a really good job? No, we most likely worked for it. Are we lucky to have a nice car? No, we have the money to pay for it.
    But! of course then there's chance.
    All that said, I believe in luck. In actual fact I'd go as far to say, I am a very lucky person.

    Luck happens.  Doo doo occurs.  I've been lucky many times in life but had my share of bad times too.

    I'm not even remotely superstitious and don't believe in lucky charms or anything like that.  But many good things that happen in life are a result of luck... being in the right place at the right time.  But you can just as easily board a Titanic.

    Yes! Sometimes we experience good fortune without putting in any real effort. Anyone who has won a jackpot in the lottery or on a slot machine would have to attribute their newfound wealth to being "Lucky".

    Most of of experience luck of some kind whether it's just missing getting hit by a car or getting something free from a vending machine.

    Very interesting question.
    My answer is Yes and Not:
    Sometimes luck is manifested in a lucky case.
    Many times our attitudes, of confidence and optimism, create what is commonly called luck.
    Other times, those who consider themselves lucky, are  just  persons that have the ability to see the positive side of things.

    Yes! I believe there are all kinds of luck. Good luck, bad luck and no luck at all. The luckiest people of all are the ones who expect to win. Feeling lucky for 2011 and beyond!

    I have often found that the good things in life often happen to me when I least expect  them to and I love surprises!
    Don't look for good things to happen to you,make them happen just by being your good self smile
    To answer your question,from personal experience,definitely YES !

    At first I did not, but I believe now. Actually not in "luck", I believe in fate. I believe that if it was in my fate that I was not fall in a danger, not because I was just lucky

    Yes I do. But I also believe that if you think you are lucky, then you get lucky. And luck is not the only decisive factor of our lives.

    I do.

    Good luck is being in the right place at the right time.

    Bad luck is being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    No luck at all, is when one is lost, which could be any time.
