How do you break a "family curse" or "streak of bad luck" ?
Many people go through life with things handed to them on a silver platter and some have to claw for each little tidbit that they get. Why is it some people have what is "called good luck" while others go with the flow and still others have a "cursed" or "unlucky" life? How would one break the streak of bad luck or break the curse that the "just plain unlucky" has?
A good way to break the streak of bad luck is to change your routine. Think and act differently. Go to new places and do new things. Lucky people tend to think and act differently. They expect and look for good opportunities. They also do things to minimize their bad luck. Being observant and focusing on the moment makes a big difference.
Think and act like a lucky person. I wrote a hub about improving your luck.

Luck and curses are meaningless concepts. It's all based on one's perception and how they process what has happened. Say you had a bad day at work, but ran into an old friend at lunch and had a fun hour. At the end of the day, do you go on and on about your reunion with the friend, or how bad work was? Both things happened, but which one you dwell on determines how happy or sad you are going to be.
There is a quote that I throw around a lot that says "Hatred is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die." And, I've latched onto the 'drinking poison' part of this. People who perceive themselves as unlucky are the ones that like to drink the poison. They dwell on the negative aspects of the day, shunning those that were good. They think about it and agonize over it until their outlook is poisoned into thinking they are cursed. People who are 'lucky' are just people who dwell on the positive, or can let the negative go. It's not easy to do, and it won't stop bad things from happening. But it makes the difference between long term happiness and long term depression.
Every problem has a source. If you spot the Truth of a problem, it (the problem) ceases to exist. As Jesus said, know the truth and the truth will set you free.
This is another way of saying, take 100% (or perfect) responsibility for the problem. Even if others seem to be the "cause," if you take 100% responsibility for their actions, then you are taking the altruistic viewpoint that is one of perfect love.
The really cool thing is, if you think you spotted the source of a problem and the problem continues to persist, then you have NOT found the Truth of the problem. Keep digging. Or ask God for help spotting the source. Allow the answer to come to you. If you do it correctly, it is entirely effortless.
This works for problems of any nature, including curses, bad luck, etc.

I have a very bad luck in my life.... I do believe in the existence of luck but not in my life ....Unfortunately, I hope I'm the only one because I don't want others to experience the same things that I have been/am experiencing.

Do you believe in luck? Good or bad.I don't believe in luck, good or bad, I believe things happen for a reason and we need to figure out why it happened. What's your thoughts?

There are moments in your life when you can't help but wonder if the Fates have lined up against you. No matter how hard you work, how hard you try; trouble crops up at every turn to thwart your efforts. I accept that as just an unfortunate series of events on some level but I can't stop...
