I must say that it is difficult to answer this question, because many people consider themselves lucky,others a bit less, others are really unlucky! I personally consider myself more or less half way, but carry the testimonies of a friend who unfortunately for her life has turned really bad luck. This person has 69 years, in addition to boring family adventures (that is divorced) in front of her fate I have witnessed three bad really amazing phenomena. He bought the memory stick with an internet phone company, whose speed had to be UMTS, EDGE instead of navigating in a more or less 10 times slowly. Change company ...... but same problem. Then she decide: subscribe to ADSL 20Mega. After 4 days of trying in vain. Her computer does not want to know go online. Bad luck or just coincidence? Decided yourself.

Maybe it's all in the mind. I read an article before that if you're always negative or pessimistic then that's what you get; negative actions have negative reactions. But if you're always positive or optimistic then the rest will follow; positive actions have positive reactions. It's like choosing to be happy or sad, I know its difficult but if we learn how to be positive all the time, then bad luck won't get a chance....

In fact it is what they always told me: to think positive!

I don’t think that way. I am not a very superstitious person. For me, everything happens for a reason. I always try to think about the good side of things. I may not get the results that I want right now but I learn from these failures. Rather than feeling bitter about a lost opportunity, it is better to count our blessings.

Hi there, Well, what shall I say? 'Lucky or unlucky'- are the terms people all across the globe believe if not all at least 60% of them. Actually the thing we call luck is closely associated with our action. I mean if you do not study well and go and sit for an examination you would not pass. And you can not blame your luck. You have undertaken a project and working hard on it and determined to make it a success you will be successful. Here you can call your self lucky but even after so much of hard work the desired result is not achieved you might feel unlucky. Now shall we analyze this unlucky? This is some kind of short coming in the work that got left unnoticed. At the end the end lest say that the luck factor is secondary and what is important is one's will power, intelligence and ability to carry out the task.

I can say that there is no such thing as bad luck, just a coincidence or unfortunate events. Good and bad things happens in life, it's in our hands on how to handle such thing or we are the one who can provide a solution in every problem.

Good luck is the most beautiful thing to have. Or at least to believe in it, once that is gone you feel a little empty in your life and wait for it to come back. There are people, most of them believe in God, who always wait for the good luck to come. With bad luck is a little different, people always feel that when anything bad happens they can blame it on bad luck and think positive again.

i really dont believe in bad luck. its just a state of mind wherein your bombarded with a lot of pessimistic thoughts, and your helpless and all u can do is believe that your having that bad luck. maybe that person was just having a bad day perhaps, but not necessarily a bad luck. one thing nice about life is that each day is never like the other so everyday would be a chance for us to make the most out of it. just bear in mind that positive thoughts attracts positive vibes.
