Speaking of luck, after I read your comment, I read a joke a friend had emailed me about this lucky man who meets this lucky frog and changes his luck around. It has a very unexpected punch line. Did my friend’s joke about luck (which was sent yesterday) influenced you to read my article, I wonder?

Interesting questions you’re posing. Maybe if you want something so badly you push it away.

I was watching a TV game show recently and I had another insight about luck. It’s called What is Luck? – Revisited.

Be lucky! If you do win big, be sure to send me a cheque. :-)

When it comes to games of chance (cards, dice, etc.) I am the unluckiest person alive. I mean the probabilities just go out the window! If I NEED to roll a 7 on a pair of dice, I could roll it 100 times and not get a 7. There is no explanation for it. Now take the pressure away and I no longer NEED to roll a 7, I could roll a 7 half a dozen times in a row. Why do some people win big at the casino after numerous times of losing? There is obviously good luck and bad luck and SOMETHING has to influence it. Fortunately, I know these things and do not gamble, but it does make me wonder.

When I am inspired to write an article, it’s usually based on what’s going on with me at the time. In other words, I don’t just focus on theory; theory is very much practical as far as I’m concerned. So the article about luck was very much something that was based on how my life was unfolding at that moment.

It’s interesting that you’re doing a speech on luck because I’ve been watching the following Reality TV show called The Speaker about the search for Britain’s best young speaker.

You might find this article interesting. That was Lucky!

All the best with your speech on luck.

Stay lucky! :)

With love,
Enocia

I love this arcticle,
I am doing a speech on luck and I was wondering if you could maybe give me some good points I could touch on. As well, I was thinking the point of view I would approach the topic on is how like is just an idea, an excuse for humans to make. How luck is really just science, when something happens, it was MEANT to happen. And if it doesnt then it wasnt MEANT to happen, kind of like Murphy’s Law.
please reply soon!
THANKS!
stay lucky

This is how I see it: the me that you see is me. It is all me. I am no stranger to the world because the world is me in form.

With love,
Enocia

Of Course I am My Body!

Because this me has been given to me
By someone who is not me-
So I am walking in this world as a stranger.

The luck I know about is the Love that I am, that we all are. I have observed that Love is the Magician that works wonders. The way to activate the Magician is to be love i.e. love who you are, do what you love, love what you do, love life, love everything and just love, love, love. Alternatively, just believe in Love/the Magician.

Why not test it out for yourself, Furqan? You might get lucky. :-)

By the way, there’s a brilliant book called “Bring Out the Magic in Your Mind” by Al Koran which you might find interesting.

All my love to you, Furqan.

My really lovely girlfriend and I (We’re soon to be married – wish us luck!) woke up this morning and had a bit of a late breakfast including some fresh orange juice.

We started talking about our friend Benjamin. He really likes Poker, which of course he thinks is not all about luck at all but in fact we all know it is a bit isn’t it.

We started talking about luck and all the different lovely (and sometimes not so lovely!) ways luck can approach you.

Then we decided to investigate the internet using our computer that a friend of ours who was throwing it out because it was very old and didn’t really work, but we thought we might be lucky and took it out of his bin in the morning of the day the rubbish men arrived. We were at his house looking after his cat for a couple of days while he went away on business as he does from time to time working as an insurance representative of a very well known bank. As it happened the computer did not completly work and we had to buy some hardware to get it going again but it was still much cheaper than buying a new one! On the internet we found this website and we thought just how lucky we were to be talking about luck as well as everbody on here.

Stay lucky :)

Michael

I ve come to my own personal definition after studying some statistics and I would define luck as: “A very rare event (meaning that the probability of that event happening is very small) that might affect somebody either negatively or posivetely.” For example When you get lucky you are just witnessing and being part of a rare event that affected you positevely. And the same for when you get bad luck, you are not hoping to be affected by that small probability of that rare event happening but sometimes we are.
Another example: Let’s say you are going to play the lottery and lets assume that the probabilities or chances of you wining with only one entry are 1 in a million, the probability of you wining are so very, very, very small that if you happen to win you would say that you got very, very, very lucky. Now lets say that you really want to win the lottery and decide to spend all of your savings which are $900,000 in order to cover all the possible combinations in a lottery game that would give you a prize of 200 million dollars, but lets say that the $900,000 amount is good to cover only 999,999 of the 1,000,000 combinations that you need but you still decide to play because you are only missing 1 combination. You can be 99.9% sure that you’ll win but there is still that very, very, very small probability that you won’t win even spending all that money, and that would be an example of extremely bad luck if you don’t win. Do you get the point?

I don’t believe money is a curse. Money, intrinsically, is neither good or bad. It’s how you use it that counts. Someone could use their fortune to bless many people. Another could devote all his wealth to something he loves doing like collecting art. If that gives you a lot of pleasure then why not? Someone else who is wealthy could be living in fear because he’s frightened it’s going to be taken away from him.

I believe it’s important to be Love then you’re always true to yourself whether you’re wealthy or not.

Cheers.

Enocia
