    i saw a tv program on cable that tried to scientifically examine that question. what they did was that they took a bunch of people and put them, unknowlingly, in situations where they could get "lucky." For example, they had their subjects travel a walkway and put a $20 bill on the ground to the side. some people were "lucky" and found it and others missed it completely. i remember them showing how some people walk with their heads down, avoiding eye contact with others.

    Apparently the phrase "you make your own luck" is a good philisophy to live by because they determined that people with a better outlook on things, people who were more confident, sociable, etc..." were far more lucky than those who weren't.

    i believe luck can give you opportunities but that's just half of it...the other half is taking that opportunity. two people can find $1000, one spends it, the other invests it for his kid's college fund who later becomes a doctor.... who was more "lucky?"

    for me... i believe i've been very lucky!! (we are excluding slots, right?:D)

    I believe that everything depends on people, if they want they will be lucky, healthy, rich and etc. Every man can achieve everything. It's important to believe. Our brain can make impossible.

    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?

    Is this in regards to luck at online casinos?
    If so, luck has nothing to do with it :p:D:p

    Lots of people do this positive Karma thing around me.

    It all comes down to pure luck.

    I am saying Bull Shit to the concept of "luck" or "karma", in any context.

    Life is random... just like a deck of well shuffled cards.

    The trick is making the best of the hand your dealt.

    Bad things happen to good people, and even sh*t-heads can win the random spins. It's funny how we westerners have only latched onto a small part, a very small part of what karma is... cum-uppance, goes round comes round. One thing I know from past experience about karma... if I respond to fear and anger with love and compassion I am content, and the person I am interacting with is usually no longer angry or afraid. I created good karma... weeeeee!

    Life is not fair, and we got nothing comin from it. I see the glass completely full even if half of it is air and the other half water. Being from the States I have been very fortunate in terms of food, shelter, security, and coming from a loving family I was fortunate that way as well. I've had disaster, calamity, crisis and opportunity in full measures, and other than direct cause and effect situations <put hand on burner, get burned> none of those things are related to each other even in the cosmic scheme of things.

    Everything happens for a reason. Yip, and the reason is that all conditions were right, period. I didn't get a flat tire because some awesome force wanted me to be late for work resulting in a better job, I got a flat tire because some assh*le didn't tie his load down and I hit his rubbish.

    Serendipity is not luck. It is opportunity... if I'm aware, and all the conditions are right to avail myself of the opportunity, I will. If I think I'm not lucky, or just a loser, or do not deserve the opportunity or am somehow otherwise not worthy of it, well it'll just be another missed boat.

    Perception, awareness, and self image will determine whether I am lucky, so-so lucky, or jinxed. But when it comes to gambling? ... luck of the draw, know when to quit, throw big sometimes with profit. If I play within a budget and am content with the journey, I can't lose, and can possibly be very lucky.
    That's my 2c adjusted for inflation. :)

    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! :)

    yes, Matthew and BingoT are 100% right, it's important to think positively.
    I've achieved a lot of goals that were unbelievable for my friends several years ago, but I always knew and believed that I would archive them, and always thought positively.

    Well,
    For the man who's house burned down, child killed, irs audit and no insurance for the life altering illness

    1. Noone died in the fire
    2. Children unfortunately die (my nephew did, (not being smartass)
    3. Atleast he has one child left, she choose not have insurance for herself, we are all healthy until something happens
    4. IRS audit...That's his fault, the penalties are because he didnt pay what he was suppose to to begin with

    My point is....Luck is about free will of the mind combined with karma. I hate when people say (my husband does this)" soandso is so lucky, did you see their new house?" that isnt luck, its called not spending money at the bar and saving for where you want to live!

    What goes around comes around, another example:

    Someone hit my car (the damage was about $1000) My car was old and I wasnt gonna keep it much longer. She wasnt the nicest person and it was her fault, it was in the city and 45 min from home. I could of made her pay the full $1000 but I knew it would really make a difference and I just couldnt do that to her so I accepted $250. My brothers said "why would you do that, you finally have a chance at getting so dough legally" (i know, lol). I just said I didnt feel right because it seemed she didnt have much

    Two weeks later:......I looked down and hit the car in front of me with the same car I was hit by. I was upset inside because I knew I couldnt afford to pay this man and didnt want my insurance to go up. We got out of the car , he took my hand and said.... "lifes too short, dont worry about this, you can barely see anything on my truck"

    That is Karma! That is what I live by Maybe Im not rich in money, but I can sleep at night and look everyone in the eye (that is wealth)

    babs, I think you have a mis-conception about what Karma is.
    Karma is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment or reward; karma simply deals with what is. You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Ya children die, everyone dies sooner or later, but until you have a child die a senseless death you don't have clue about loss or grief or mourning. BTW - my daughter was pregnant with my grandchild when she was killed by a illegal alien driving a farm truck, so it was really like having a child and a grandchild killed at the same time.

    Someone did die in the fire... My dog, I know its only a dog, but I loved him a lot, not to mention I lost everything I owned that I valued... Including all the pictures of my daughter.

    The one child left... Ya thats so fucking lucky... He is completly disabled, the no insurance issue is not really a problem, I make a lot of money. The real issue is at 25 his life is over, he will never marry or have children, he will never do a lot of things... And I watch him cry about it and wish for death every damn day, ya it's really 'lucky' he is still here...

    The IRS audit was simply because of what I do... Promote online casinos, at least that is what the IRS auditor told me.

    I say it again... life is random... like a deck of well shuffled cards.
    It's how you play your hand that counts.

    I'll stop now, I think I've said enough about my life.

    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.
