    How do You define luck?

    First off do you believe in luck? And second how would you describe it to someone?

    Yes, I believe in luck.  I think it is the universe's good energy that accounts for things going my way through no effort of my own.  It's the synchronicity that allows for things turning out happily ever after when logic dictates that simply is not an option.

    Yes I believe in luck and I also think you can attract luck to you. I'm sure there are lots of ways to define it, but I guess my favourite would be - something really good or exciting happening when you really expected nothing at all.

    I do believe in luck, good and bad,
    How to describe luck? Good luck is finding a gold bar behind the golf ball you lost in a nook of a tree. Bad luck is reaching for the bar and hearing the rattlesnake coiled beside it.

    Luck can go either way; but it is simply what we call it when you happen to fall on one side or the other of statistical anomalies. It is what we call beating, or being beaten, by the odds.

    If the number you picked wins the lottery you have beaten the odds against choosing a random number, hence lucky.
    If you are struck by lighting, bitten by a shark or some other very unlikely event, you have still beaten the odds, just not in a good way.

    Luck doesn't exist. God is involved in everything smile Prayer helps but we don't always get what we want. I have seen my life highly improve thou since I was saved last yr...just sayin. I believe God blesses those who trust in Him. On the other hand, those who need saving...may get bad things to "wake them up"for...why would they pray unless they needed to?? wink

    Being open to the universe and allowing magic to happen. Then when bad luck happens, being able to brush it off, knowing something good will come later.

    Yes I do believe in luck.

    Luck to me is accumulation of good Karma & Merits. When you have been doing good things, luck will simply follows you.

    You will be surprised at things going your way with the amount of good Karma accumulated for your good luck.

    I always believe that when a person is doing good things to help others and in return will receive lots of good luck.

    Be yourself and help others whenever you possibly can. Do not ask for anything in return. You will receive your good luck when the time is right.

    In my own case I would define luck as something that would not normally happen to you.

    There is no such thing as luck, only planned action, un planned action, and no action. Luck is when something happens and people did not see the signs, this is either good or bad luck.

    what appears to be "luck", is likely a lack of understanding of universal laws. while items/events appear to either be fortunate, of unfortunate, in both cases, there is equal balance 50/50 at all times of constant support/challenge.

    no, i do not believe in luck. our inner most dominant thoughts create our outer most tangible reality. more like P.E.A.R Our Perceptions, yield an Emotion, which produces an Action, to give us a Result. great question btw.

    I do believe in luck. I work very hard and have tremendous faith in my abilities but I have on numerous occasions recognized the subtle way in which luck has aided and given me what I did not work for.

    Luck is the inexplicable segment out of your everyday events and experiences. Most often it is not recognized because most of us have a lot of good luck and our ego colors our judgement to take credit for even that which did not flow out of our efforts.

    Luck is always acknowledged by anybody who goes through a prolonged period of adversity. I have seen that even the most stoic believers in logic and self-effort start recognizing the luck factor at such times. Unfortunately at other times there is no logic that can convince a disbeliever about the role of luck.

    Preparation meeting opportunity creates luck--this rule is for the vast majority of us.  There are people who do nothing and seem to be very lucky...hard to explain that.  I think I have been fairly lucky but I also know that I made sure I was ready when the opportunity presented itself.

    I believe in luck.  Luck is what happens without your control or sometimes awareness.  For example, if you dropped £20 on the average street without your knowledge, that is unlucky.  If you were to later realise this and go back to that street and it's still there, that's lucky.

    well..i strongly believe in destiny....and i feel that luck is only a manifestation of it in the form of a blessing from god..

    thus to say...yes, i in a way do believe in luck...however i demarcate myself from those who say that they STRONGLY believe in luck..

    and as far as defining luck is concerned..i define it in terms of what it is not...luck is not that what you get even when you don't deserve it...

    rather luck is a push that leads you to achieve what you truly deserve...probably that why i call it a blessing of god!!

    I don't believe in luck as much as I do something being God's will.  In other words, what people call good luck is really God's blessing - that's my opinion.

    As for bad luck, I think that's just more tribulations.  And this is something we will all have whether or not you bring it on yourself.
