Do you believe in luck?
Luck, fate, chance. Whatever you call it, the meaning has one common thread. Unpredictability. Events and circumstances can go one way or another. For better or for worse, the outcome is out of our hands.
Some people say they make their own luck. All of us are presented with crossroads at one time or another, and which way we turn often depends wholly on us.
Is critical analysis the basis of good fortune?
Does fortune favour the bold? Is it all about grasping at opportunities? Or, do fools go where angels fear to tread?
Is it luck that leads us to find the right job, the right home, the right partner in life? Or, do we set the stage by actions that increase the probabilities of this happening?
Do those who say they’re ‘lucky’ really mean they know how to maximise their chances of success?
