I believe in the phrase "you make your own luck".
..agreed!!!Gambling aside.....I think people who live their life's believing they have been born unlucky will almost certainly subconsciously make bad decisions creating all their own problems.
If you don't believe it will happen then it never will, not because of luck, but because you make it not happen by already deciding it wont.
It is so important to always think positively!
One mans 21 year old daughter gets killed in car wreck, his house burns down and the insurance company won't pay up, his only surviving child comes down with a terrible life altering disease (no insurance because the child was 23 and seemed in good health), a full IRS audit with lots of penalties, all in two years.... Is that bad luck or what?
Damn, I am very lucky when compared to lots0. How you manage to keep a relatively cool head with all the shit that's happened to you is simply amazing... even with the Absolute Poker incident I still think you've kept your cool much more than I probably could.
