There were times that im wondering why some people are that lucky and why not me. For example, There are a lot people that, doesn't work hard but yet their extremely wealthy or perhaps people that is not that good but their in the higher level of achievement. I personally felt tired of working so hard and put all my love and dedication to my work and yet I feel not being recognized. I don't know if you guys ever wonder why some people are that lucky and not you?

Hello, Margarit. I have never asked me why, but I have already noticed it. Others always seems to be lucky. It is like if they put no effort and they got what I want. In fact, what may seem like luck is actually the result of a hard learning process that they went through. They had to go through hard moments, but they were able to learn from it and now it becomes easier for them to get some things. I wouldn't call it luck. If you still haven't reached it, you are not trying in the right way. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

Hi munhozmib, Well i agree with in some other way but their are really lucky people that even they dont work hard for it they still have what they wanted witout any effort at all. Have you ever ask why some are born in a rich family and not you? Have you ever wondered why other doesnt need to work at all but everyone works for him/her o make him/her wealthy. Thanks for the respond.

Poor them. they were born rich, in a lovely family and in a safe neighborhood. They will never know what is it like to fight for somebody you love. They will never be hurt nor feel the challenge of life. Therefore, they will never be as happy as I am.

hi margarit! once in my life i have asked myself the same question. why there are people who are too lucky to be rich and famous and at the same time with power to manipulate other people. while on the other hand how come there are people who are unlucky to have almost nothing but themselves and their faith. during my contemplation i got an answer, the answer is this, ARE THE LUCKY ONES HAPPY WITH THEIR LIVES? then i will realize that not all who have more money, more fame, more wealth, more friends are happy with their lives. reality is sometimes they are the most lonesome people on earth. why? because they do not have the satisfaction inside them, once they have more they will yearning for more almost two folds of what they have. unfilfillment or dissatisfaction is the reason why people are not happy with life because they get tired of getting for more. margarit, take time to relax. think that you are so much blessed as compared with other people. be cheerful because you are loved by God. the ones lacking in you is a blessing meaning the Lord has to give you more. have a great day!

Sometimes, some people are lucky with financial matters but of course i am sure in some matters they are not that lucky too. Maybe their family and the health they have. For me, being lucky is not measured by money, it is measured on how you appreciate good things within you. Family, friends, relatives and who you are is what matter most and especially how faithful you are with our God and the trust you have in your heart that no matter what happened, and no matter how things get hard, as long as you have God in your heart, you are always LUCKY!

Yeah I think of that all day, I work all day hard and still can't have any promotion or any luck. I only get, bills, problems and stress nothing else. However then I see others that work less, have what they worked for and have also good fortune, like they win a lottery tooo. However there are also people who are suffering due to sickness which then I feel real forutnate that me and my family are still healthy.

Well, maybe when You try so hard to get something: You will never proceed with it. Stop working hard, and start doing what You really enjoy and like and what You can do with an ease. Then one morning You will wake up and realize that somehow You have becomed that happy and lucky persons and that others started to feel jealousy towards You. I have seen many people being very lucky, but I don`t think that it makes me to be a looser. I always try to understand that if they have something more then I do, or have succeeded more: than this is what THEY deserve, and not me. They have a talent or skills, or invested lots of their time and energy somewhere where I did not manage to do the same, so the result is: someone always is happier than You. But there are many unlucky and sad people, so I always hope for the best and I tahnk God for all those things and people that I have and never asked for something what I did not deserve.

i used to wonder that when i was much younger. i'm always asking myself why others have it better. it doesn't help that there are many who get more despite little efforts. then one day it dawned on me that by comparing with those who had it better, it just makes me feel depressed. it doesn't help motivate me or make me happy. i've since learnt to really count my blessings. at least i feel much happier now and am contented with what i have. cheers

I also have sometimes to think about why my friends so lucky. But sometimes also I look at those friends are not as good as I, so I will feel that I'm lucky too compare to them. Then I will not blame anymore.

i personally dont believe in luck. i think that each of us is blessed with certain things and we should be thankful for what we have. god blesses us with the things we can handle. we dont always get what we deserve. if he gave us everything we ever wanted what lesson would we learn??

I feel that the more I stress about money the worse it gets. Trying to budget and fit all those little needs in are harder than I think sometimes. It's hard to sit back and watch someone like who you describe as a person who is not so good having a higher level of achievement than myself very annoying. I could use an example about someone but would rather not at this time. have a great night

I wonder that all the time. My life has not been a bowl full of cherries that is for sure. I wonder why I had to sick so I couldn't work and support my son anymore, I wonder why my ex wont pay his child support, I also wonder why bad people always get what they want and us good people have to suffer. Like my ex inlaws. They always get everything they want. My ex sister in law and her husband lost thier house in a tornado and the next week they bought a brand new one. And they are not good people at all. They treat me very badly, for example, they came over to my place to give my son a winter coat cause I couldn't afford to, and I was standing right there by the front door and she never said a word to me!! She only spoke to my son! I was extremely hurt. Coming into MY home and ignoring me like that. That is the kind of people they are. They take joy in hurting people. And my dad passed away 3 years ago. Why did this happen? He was such a good man. These things never happen to the bad people. It makes me so mad.

I totally agree, it would be really nice for once, even though I dont do it often, to win a few million on the Lottery, just to help me fulfill a few dreams such as, Learn How to play the Guitar, Drive, Pay off some Family Member Debts, Travel and see some awesome bands/music..... But will that ever happen - No!!

Nope, i dont question things that are happening now with my life, besides i dont see myself unlucky. Try to see those who are less fortunate than you are and you will agree with me that you are indeed lucky. Dont look unto people who are superior than you, you'll never know that someday (well we are not praying of course that something bad to happen to them) they could fall and you being left behind before turns to be out the rich guy. Just work hard and soon youll get want you dream of.

hii i think i m really unlucky. Not b'cuz i was not born in an affluent family, also not because i broke up with someone, but i have some very unusual reason. I don't know why i always suferred from some or the other disease since my very childhood. I m physically or mentally not challenged but not better off either. I believe in reincarnation and think that it is due to some sins that i may have commited in my some earlier life.

Yes, somtimes I have wonder that question. We hope equal, but there is no absolute equal in fact. We can't choose where we born ,our visage, what kind of parents or social relationship we have. And that is true someone is lucky. But in my opinion, luck is divided into four kinds. First, because of his born and social relationship, he get a high income or status, which I don't like but I can not change it. We are not only ourselves. We belong to the society and have to obey the rule of the game. Second, with his capability of intercommunication, he get what he want,even if he has no true technique. Although I look down that, I have not that capability and what could I say. Everyone has his own way to survive. Third, with the chance,luckily, he gets rish, suah as lottery. Besides congratulations, what can I say to him. That is truely lucky.But that is a chance, no one can with a prize in every lottery. Forth, he was considered as very lucky to get what the achievement. Is that just lucky? No, success will not come into the people who have not prepared. He gets sucess, because of his effort and the chance. I know maybe you will be unhappy when your effort can't be recognized. And there is a common saying in our country: the gold will shine one day. So don't disanimate and catch the chance arround. Good luck to you! Although I want to be lucky, I am not a lucky man. But I cherish what I have now and I prefer to live a simple life. I think I will be happier when I used to content with my lot.

It is perhaps a quirk of fate that takes you where you go. I feel that each one does not get what he deserves, but what is in store for him because of teh circumstances he is born in or the situation he is faced with. Some paopel work hard but their work is never recognised, but some people work smart and ensure that their work is projected to teh right people. Some people act smarter and get someone else's work projected at their and then they take credit for it without having any prik o0f the conscience. The world is like that.One has to learn how to work smart and not necessarily work hard. a friend of mine used to say "Work smart and don't work hard and mention it in front of your boss."

Hi friend,I never feel that anytime because each and every one are lucky in some way or other.When you see the wealth side they also may have some problems which we do not know.Our time changes and we would not be in the same position always .But in my experience I think that matters should not get worse than the present condition which we may not be able to face.But god would certainly give us strength to face anything in that time.So dont ever worry about being recognised as everyone has to pass some stages in life,if not with money then with something else. thanks for sharing.happy mylotting.

Well I have a cousin and i felt extremely jealous of him as he would get anything he wanted. If he wanted a motorbike he would get it very easily without having to work for a penny. His daddy runs a party organizer and so he is very rich. even though my dads a UN officer he doesn't give me much money so i have to wait a whole lot of time if i have to get something. That is the reason for why i am in my lot. Anyways it seems totally unfair. But recently he has gone for abroad study and i think well hes having a good time he doesn't have to work there but i think i may have to work if i go abroad.

Hi pmspratik, Well i think life is like that sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Things happend for a reason, maybe we have to work hard inorder to achieve the things that we wanted while others are just lucky enough that all the things that they wanted is very easy to get. The difference is we are more happy for we work hard for it. Thanks for the respond.
