If you trip and fall, before you say you have bad luck, why not just check if your shoelaces were untied or whether you simply missed a rock or something in your way. Does it have to be ‘bad luck’ or could it just be a mistake?
Similarly, why do people say “you’re so lucky (good luck), you always get what you want …” instead of recognising that you might have actually worked hard for the things you have? Is it difficult to believe that there is preparation & execution behind success and fortune?
I have been thinking about this for a while. Well, let me say the thoughts recently resurfaced. And with the idea in mind that since 3 June 2019 (almost 2 years ago) when I first touched on this topic, I have grown and developed as a human being, I wanted to revisit my initial thoughts and maybe elaborate on them more clearly.
We tend to use luck to explain things we either agree or disagree with. It’s easy to throw the word luck around just as a quick, ‘let’s-move-on’ statement, I think either to pass time or the explanation is just too long or we do not want to share.
It is not always possible to explain everything. Maybe some things are just are as they are and maybe as they should be. So let us unpack what we can and figure it out together. Sound good?
I want to go through the concept of bad luck. Then I want to go through the idea of good luck. I want to see where it all takes me, if it takes me anywhere at all. Let us watch this video together. It was the trigger into me revising my thoughts, along with other conversations I have had along the way, but one thing at a time.
Only one question:
Thank you for taking the time to read the opening to my new-ish set of thoughts. You are invited to tell me your thoughts in the comments section below.
Share with those who believe or do not believe in luck, let’s see what they think afterwards.
