Some times I do and sometimes i dont. I think most of the bad things that will happen to me , is more like muphy's law. Like last summer, every day would be clear blue skies and very sunny, but on the day that i went to the beach, there would be clouds in the way of the sun and it wouldnt be very warm. If good things happen to me, it will be things like finding a penny or finding something. So tell me, do you believe in luck? do you think you are a lucky person? ro an unlucky person?

I think i believe half and half. When i was in high school, my teacher told me, everyone have their own luck, but it's limited. If you spend your lucky this time, you will lose one, and you will not be lucky next time. I think she was talking about taking the exams. But when i grown up, i think she is right, we should not always count on luck, we give all of our best efforts. Do you agree?

I dont believe in luck per say, what I do believe is that if you work hard and you are a good person you will create your own luck.

Yes,i agree with your idea.You will create your own luck.Take me for example,i always think i am not a lucky man.But later,i realize that i dont do my best to do something.So you will be a lucky man, if you work hard and work hard.

Tell me 1 thing buddy, Who doesnt believe in luck .Everyone does. People generally think of luck when something good or bad happens to them without the expectation of their mind. That's why. Well If anything goes bad , like an interview they say, I had it all but not luck. Thats how it goes. As far as i know. Anyways Nice discussion buddy .Happy mylotting

Its not the luck we are dealing in life but it is about us what we really do to make our life become a successful one and made a new beginning if we fall from the trials that we have been experience. we never be a perfect person but we try to become a perfect one to get what we want in life, luck is every where and it is the trust to our self will be the remedy to be happy.

I still believe that luck and rate I do not believe that! For example,a five million people in the lottery,then he must be very good luck,becausr only a handful of people,so this is the luck!I do not believe in fate,said that certain arrangements are like heaven,then I do not believe it! Destiny into their own hands through their own efforts to create change,but the hands of God to control luck!

Hey awesomer! I do believe in luck! And I have always believed that I am am basically an unlucky person for whatever reason! I am the type of person who also would go to the beach on a sunny day and they all of a sudden it would start to rain! I have always had bad luck and bad things happen to me for no apparent reason! I have always tried to be a good person, but no matter what I do things just never seemed to change! Even when I did good things and did good things for others bad things still happened to me! So what am I supposed to think? I swear I was born with a black cloud hanging over me!

I am a very optimistic person. I consider myself blessed. I don't know if it's luck or probably my faith. Luck, fate and destiny are things that I think should also be acknowledged because in life, there are really things beyond comprehension. There are things we can not explain. But I also believe in hardwork and perseverance. You can't just rely on luck all the time. At the end of the day, you make your own destiny.

I prefer not to believe in such thing as luck. Cause of I do believe in it then I'm gonna consider myself one of the most unlucky guy. Yeah I think I'm not lucky at all in different aspects of life. So I believe that in order to live a harmoniously life with everyone, you must look at your self at the mirror then ask your self who am really I and what should I do to survive this life.

Hi,awesomer_than_you! Well,I have to admit that luck really matters,but this doesn't mean that I believe in luck.I think we cannot rely on luck because no one can always have good luck.What we should do is to sharpen our abilities so that we can get what we want without good luck.When good luck falls upon you,don't be too excited,because it won't last forever.When bad luck falls upon you,don't be upset,because it won't last forever,too. Happy mylotting and have a nice day!

I actually believe in luck in most cases. I buy lottery every day. Sometimes I get some lucky money with it. I am hoping I can win the great prize in the future. Also I believe the luck in the daily life. For example, when I go out, I believe it will not rain from my instinct. I believe people will get paid if they keep doing good things.

i think i am not a lucky one. i alway have many trouble around me. not only the weather . i think the weather won't be controled by human. so i just think luck is your mind, if your mind good, then you are lucky, if you mind not good, i think you maybe unlucky. that's the definiation i have made for luck. happy mylotting..

Luck to me is the most important thing in life. U may be absolutely well read with a lot of degrees, and yet you end up with a mediocer job, and a less read man will end up with a well paid job. Why ? Luck my friend. I have seen people who are uneducated and earning well in business, whereas the educated ones are slogging it out at the desk of some employer. Ive also seen really rich men bite dust overnight and the really poor become well off. If all this is not luck, what is it. I say, everybody needs some push in life, and if the push comes from Lady Luck, then your life is made. May Lady Luck smile on all of us, Amen.

yes..i do....i have seen how success came to some people because of luck...no offense but some have been very lucky that they have material comfort or fame just becauce they are lucky to be born to a rich family or they are heirs or heiresses..like one very famous woman who carries a hotelier's surname..but others have earned it thru their own merit..talent or real blood and sweat..but...so we should just believe in it...hahaha..it could happen to anyone!
