This one of the most intriguing question. In life we all have to face different situations, be it during exam or during an interview and like many more. I have seen many people who won over difficult situation mysteriously without much preparation which according to me is called luck. On the other hand some people put in extra bit of effort and sometimes they succeed sometimes not. What according to you is most important to win over this type of situation? is it hard work or luck?

I believe in luck. Almost everybody wants to be in the top and works hard to achieve his goal. But only a few shine and others go astray inspite of their sincere workmanship. Luck can be the only judging factor here. Otherwise, how can we explain one person's victory and the others failure. Some may speak of karma theory. But I would say it is luck, in other words.

That is the irony of life. When you are trying to put your efforts into a certain situation or endeavor and you failed and others who does not put effort on it succeed, that is luck. However, I cannot rely on luck alone without hard work. It is more overwhelming when you succeed because of hard work.

I don't think only hard work applies to get you through many situations. I believe hat luck in a big factor as well here. Lucky that the opportunity is there, lucky that at the time the boss was happy, lucky that there is no one at the time, etc.
