Those who have succeeded at anything and don't mention luck are kidding themselves.
I almost forgot about the monthly subject, and since we are almost at the middle of July I thought it was about time to write about something. So this month I will write about that certain something that can totally transform one million realities with just one fantasy. July is for luck and being lucky.
What is really luck, or being lucky in that matter? Well, if it were to give it a definition then we would definetly have more than one type of luck, such as constitutional luck which reffers to the place of birth, circumstances of being raised or genetic constitution. Then we have ignorance luck and ofcourse circumstantial luck which is the one I want to talk about. I mean we can all feel fortunate for so many things in our lives, like our family, our health or sometimes looks, but then there are the unexpected events, that something that makes you gasp "Aaah, I'm so lucky!", and that sometimes leaves us wondering, how did that actually happened?
In some cultures people believe that they can influence their luck with certain rituals, spells, omens and even sacrifice; some with secret actions or things that they believe can favor their luck for the future, such examples would be wearing a certain t-shirt or saying a prayer before leaving for, say a job-interview and the list can endlesly go on. The same goes with numbers, picking lucky numbers based on different reasons. But is it really all those things that we do that bring the fortunate events in our lives?
