Does anybody here truly believe in luck or do people believe more in chance?

Just curious (& slightly bored) so that's why I'm asking :)

I don't believe in luck (chance). I believe that we make our own choices and the consequences follow.

You can't make ur own luck. That's a bit of an oxymoron.....isn't it :?

The first 2 post from men are straight forward.
The first 2 posts by women are more fantasy driven.

You can't make your own luck, but you can make personal choices that happen to be very fortunate for you.

It is a natural human emotion to believe in intangible events.

Even those who plaintively aren't superstitious in any way will "touch wood" or use similar concepts just to communicate to others that they understand the issues behind what they say.

Superstitions, good luck, bad luck, etc arise from an inner desire to "control" our circumstances and the consequences of our actions in an illogical manner that often has a logical base in past events.

For instance someone gets run over by a car and a black cat crosses their path... next time they see the black cat they will internally connect it with being run over by a car and feel that the cat brought them bad luck. It doesn't even need to be something that happens to us but something that has happened to someone else we know or that someone has told us happened to someone they know... This is how superstitions last so long and repeat in generation after generation and from one culture to another.

To clarify.. luck seems to be a god given gift, chance as a result of chaos. Very intimate part of the psyche.

Forget that...did you hear about the rapist who won the lottery!? :p

Now that totally contradicts the theory of luck being a god given gift.

Almost :)
Some people believe that they attract luck by carrying a "lucky sixpence" or "lucky rabbit's foot". Some think they were born either lucky or unlucky. I think that the decisions we make in life determines what happens to us. This is why I don't believe in horoscopes or trinkets. I remember finding a £10.00 note a few weeks back. I do not believe that I was lucky, but that I chose to go out and walk down that particular road at that time. If I'd chosen to go another way then I would not have found it, but that wouldn't have been unlucky because I would never have know there was a £10.00 note up for grabs.

I was thinking of that too! It's actually a pretty cool concept. lol

If only luck was carried in vials and we could just stream it up!

It's not luck ... it's choices.

We either make good choices or bad choices.

I agree that it is "choices" and not luck. But I don't think that there are any "bad choices" as every decision, choice, we make in life brings us closer to the understanding of ourselves, of our true nature and spirit, wether we want to accept and believe this or not...

I agree with that to a point, but if I choose to drive fast, crash and kill myself (hopefully not others too) then my learning days are over. I know what you mean though.

Luck has been scientifically proven, it's actually a virus which briefly inflects the body but rather than bringing bad effects as a conventional virus does instead the infected person will briefly experience consistently good 'luck'. This virus has been produced artificially to give someone seemingly very good luck when injected with it.

Agree with everyone on here that we make good or bad choices, resulting in good or bad luck. I do think its a bit smug though if we believe it to be that simple. Undoubtedly people have rotten things happen that are pure bad luck/ chance and they don't have any control over them. I hate it when people justify bad things happening to others, finding reasons that mean it can never happen to them! Smug and also very shortsighted

United won European Cup 50 years after Munich, I believe John Terry missing that penalty was fate. I'm not really a great believer in luck etc.. But sometimes things are a little bit too coincidental.
#36
John Terry is bent thats why he missed that penalty
#37
I dont think that everything we do or that happens to us is a result of chance or necessarily that it proves luck exists either. Not all our actions are down to the choices we make or that others do. We cannot control all circumstances.

Not necessarily. You're almost completely disregarding the impact of other people's actions on your life.

A person decides to turn right at a crossing and you have to stop to wait for them, meaning you get to the next set of lights later than you would have if they had carried straight on.

Seemingly minor actions can have large ramifications and the infinite outcomes of any action will have boundless knock on effects that can be favourable or unfavourable.

That is what I think people mean by luck and it's about as good as explanation for things happening a certain way as any.

You could've said the same thing if they had won it 10, 20, 25, 30 or 40 years after Munich.

Or you could say that wasn't it lucky the plane never took off in the first place. You're basically endowing an action with far more significance that it actually has. We are trained to look for these neat little narrative structures in life. Nice when it happens though.
