What is Luck?

This section was intended for the rare occasion where some useful content might be found concerning bad luck. Since many things have opposites, i.e. Ying and Yang, push and pull, up and down, black and white, good and bad luck, etc., I didn’t want to totally ignore the unpleasant side of luck. However, it will now include any luck content we may be privy to.

Although the concept of luck may have appeared in antiquity, the English noun luck appears comparatively late, during the 1480s. It probably entered English as a gambling term, and the context of gambling remains detectable in the word’s connotations; luck is a way of understanding a personal chance event.

 

Luck Definition

There are three concepts concerning luck:

  • Luck is good or bad.
  • Luck is by accident or chance.
  • Luck applies to a person (is a personal thing).

Often, however luck is also applied to groups, such as a sports team, and you often hear of the team having good or bad luck. In fact, this is common and in the news and on TV, mentions of good or bad luck for the team is common.

Some examples of good luck:

You win repeatedly at gambling, winning against the slot machines against significant odds.

Your name is drawn as the big winner in a contest you entered just for the heck of it.

Your brand new car breaking down one block from the dealer as you drove away.

You’re in your early 40s, broke, have a stroke, then find out the VA awards you many $1000s /mo. for life, while others get a pittance or none, and are in worse condition.

Your home business has failed, you lost your $17K/yr job, your home is in bankruptcy, your car broke down, but your 99 year old mom just won the lottery for 278 million dollars and bequeaths all of it to you, her only son.

 

Some examples of bad luck:

You are at the airline ticket counter heading overseas when someone snatches your purse with money and ID, thus preventing you from leaving.

You were offered an outstanding job but on starting day the company declared bankruptcy and locked its doors.

You won $75,000 and deposited it in your bank account but next day the IRS confiscated it before you could use it.

A powerful whirlwind came down your block and missed all the homes except yours which was torn to pieces.

You were walking down the street, spotted a rather large bag with money flying out the top, grabbed it, and on the way driving to return it to the bank it was stolen from, had a car accident, broke both legs and an arm, and while half dazed noticed someone grabbing the money while you are hopelessly pinned in the driver’s seat. No reward, no thanks, no mercy, while you lay in your hospital bed confined for about six months.

 

Unexpected Fallout

 

When doing research on luck and after reading many books on the subject it came as a shocking surprise to learn there are people who either have no concept of luck or it’s against their religion, that is; there is no such thing as luck. This article arguing against the idea of luck was a real eye opener. Having been born and raised in the United States I had no idea other parts of the world dismissed the idea of luck.

Although I’ve been to Africa, China, and a few other countries outside the U.S., the concept of “Luck, what’s that?” never occurred. Just as strange, to me, was the idea of gemstones having unusual powers of healing and the ability to bring either good luck, bad luck, or protect one from bad luck. Read some of the articles on this site or this site to find out more about such powers and gemstone characteristics.

The last revelation that occurred as research for good luck continued was doing associated research on karma, along with fate, destiny, and good fortune. That brought me face-to-face (over the internet) with another distant part of the world, India and a lot of its traditions (see separate India menu), some of which are included here. The most unusual, however, was learning about the Vedas and its sacred knowledge.

 

Further concepts of luck

  • In personality psychology, people reliably differ from each other depending on four key aspects: beliefs in luck, rejection of luck, being lucky, and being unlucky.
  • Back in the Middle Ages there was a god of fortune, named Fortuna, the Roman goddess of fate or luck. It became popular in learned circles of the High Middle Ages to portray her as a servant of God in distributing success or failure in a characteristically “fickle” or unpredictable way, thus introducing the notion of chance.
  • Luck can also be a belief in fortunate and unfortunate events.
  • Luck can be simply “leaving it to chance” as a way of resolving issues. For example, flipping a coin may determine who goes first in a game or contest.
  • Luck is a form of superstition which is interpreted differently by different individuals. Carl Jung coined the term synchronicity, which he described as “a meaningful coincidence”.
  • Abrahamic religions believe God controls future events; belief in luck or fate is criticized in Book of Isaiah chapter 65, verses 11-12:
  • What will happen to you for offering food and wine to the gods you call good luck and fate? Your luck will end.
  • Some encourage the belief in luck as a false idea, but which may produce positive thinking, and alter one’s responses for the better.
  • If “good” and “bad” events occur at random to everyone, believers in good luck will experience a net gain in their fortunes, and vice versa for believers in bad luck. This is quite likely to be self-reinforcing.
  • In the ancient art of numerology some numbers are considered unlucky or lucky.
  • In various religions there seems to be no concept of luck, whether good or bad.

Many people have questions about luck, especially good luck. Because the concept of luck appears to mean different things to different people and luck can seem to be both bad or good depending on how one looks at it you will find all sorts of questions and answers. We have extracted some of these questions and answers from Yahoo Answers and included them below.

Question About Cult Sacrifices

This question is not directly related to luck, but if a person is sacrificed that person will have horribly bad luck. Also the superstitious belief of sacrificing a person, usually for some religious or cult reason is a very ancient practice.

Maria asks…

Should a human sacrifice cult be allowed to promote its superstition in public places?

In my home town, a human sacrifice cult had planned to publicly promote its dogma that a human sacrifice resulting in death is a legitimate and appropriate religious rite deserving of respectful acknowledgement and, even, worship.

This year, insufficient funding is all that prevented the staging of their promotion in the city centre public (children’s) park and gardens.

My question (which has already been maliciously reported and successfully censored by members of the cult at issue, once) is should a cult with such a primitive and morally repulsive practice at the core of its superstitious beliefs even be legally allowed to promote itself in such a public place?
They don’t call themselves “a human sacrifice cult”. I do, because they are. And the particular religious rite of human sacrifice resulting in death in question is popularly referred to by the euphemism “The Crucifixion”.

Suzi Q answers:

Such celebrations should be banned. Not encouraged.

Mary asks…

Do you believe in luck? If you do, what makes you feel lucky?

Can you empower yourself through using your lucky charms and rituals?

Suzi Q answers:

Yes I believe in luck but don’t feel lucky at the moment. I haven’t been able to empower myself using lucky charms and rituals. I think life is like a wheel of fortune or a carousel ride; what goes up must come down, there will be ups and downs in fortunes.

Richard asks…

My boyfriend saw himself headless in the mirror, now his mom dreamed of missing a tooth?

he told me yesterday that he saw himself in the mirror headless in the early morning and at midnight. then he told that thing to his mom, his mom said that yesterday is his grandpa’s death anniversary, maybe it’s just his grandpa’s spirit haunting him.
then this morning his mom told him to stay at home for 1 week, for she has dreamed of losing a tooth.
superstitions here in philippines said that when you saw yourself headless, you must burn your shirt. he was shirtless at the moment he saw himself.

Donna asks…

Could I have had the worst luck ever.. :(?

Is anyone here a miracle worker, if so can you send a little my way please!!

firstly, i have a condition called m.e its a neurological condition which affects my muscles/sleep/ etc and puts me in pain, etc. like having the worst flu ever, recently i have bee really ill, and its making me down in the dumps,

I was recently made unemployed due to my illness from my job which i worked for, for nearly 3 years.

The other day my other half had her car ticketed by some conmen company carpark which charged her 50 pounds although they saw us both leave and return to the car within 10 minutes, they laughed and carried on, she was helping me by parking close to our house, so that i didnt have to walk too far,

We both lost £200 in a scam which we will never see again, money that was meant to pay for a holiday we are meant to be going on,

This sounds silly but our cat jumped out of a window the other day, hes ok mind but still he has never been outside and thought jumping out of the kitchen window which is 10ft up was a good idea.

My old employer wont pay me any extra, and they also said that i have no holiday remaining as i left before the new holiday year or something like that.

The other morning i fell up the stairs and as i have weak bones/muscles i ended up knackering up my wrists, and have to wear wrist supports anyways,

We lost some money on ebay as we offered free postage to entice people into buying but the postage cost more than the items we sold, so we actually lost money :( money again to save for our holiday

In the 23 years i have been on this bloody planet all i have had is bad luck, escpecially at the moment, got no job, no energy, no money!!! GRAAAHHHH!!

Im not a person to ask for anything special i just wish someone would click their fingers and give us a cheer up.. :(

anyone help?? PLEASE!
Why are people so damn cruel nowadays? john especially, if you knew anymore i would have to write a book, m.e is quite a rare condition in someone my age, its misunderstood and as for me being the blame for my bad luck is a horrible thing to say..

Is it my fault i got ill? no.

Is it my fault my employer said i wasnt worth being there if i was ill so i should quit?

Is it my fault that we were ripped off?

Is it my fault that my employer is tightfisted and wont pay me holiday pay that is outstanding, or my 2 weeks in hand that i worked?

I have had enough with people.. how damn insensitive can people be?
Bob, i sympathise with you, a close friend of mine was killed by a drunk driver, in a head on collision.

And i also praise your courage, and i know what it must be like, its not easy.

I know that i am healthier than some people, i know people are dying around the world and whatnot, but like i said if i could write down all what has happened i think people would be affected by my story,

I was a healthy guy, i loved working i wanted to make the most of myself after a touch childhood with a mother who was disabled that i cared for, and a father who left us and never cared about us,

I have dealt with many hard things, i just want a little luck my way, thats all.

Suzi Q answers:

I don’t suppose that I am of any practical help, and sorry to read of your misfortunes.

But I can offer sympathy, in that I was nearly killed on my motorbike with a drunken idiot that pulled out in front.

I can now only teach water ski-ing, no longer demonstrate it all.

So I am on the incapacity to work list, and I like work, but I get pestered to show that I only have one leg that works.

Darn !

I am lucky in comparison to yourself.
This “bloody planet” as you put it has a lot to answer for.

The bloke that nearly killed me got a £30 fine.

No justice sometimes !

All the Best,
Bob





William asks…

Hopefully, I’m gonna resolve my 3-year bad luck with this.?

Ever since I left my job in a company in Dec 2007after having worked there for 2 years, lets say company A, I’ve been struggling to hold a job for various reasons. I quit 2 jobs in 2008, 3 jobs in 2009 and 3 jobs in 2010! These are full-time, good career jobs including those in Unisys, HSBC, HP, IBM, Ernst & Young and Dell!

Either, I’d issues with my supervisor’s rude behavior or due to minor health reasons to which I was sensitive of people’s comments(I’d a swollen nose). I even quit one of my jobs fearing management reaction because I got up late! My work involves night shifts beginning at 11.30pm. So I’d difficulty getting up on time due to which I was late only once by 30minutes. But when I got up late again the next day, I realised I’d reach office 2 hours late. I feared they’d react negatively. So I just stopped going there.

Now I feel the only way out to break this 3-year long unlucky struggle is to rejoin my old company A where I’d worked happily for 2 years, till Dec 2007. Unfortunately I quit that time to pursue a different career option but golly, did that work out for me! Please pray for me as I go there tomorrow for my interview. Any suggestions also welcome. Thank you.

Betty asks…

Do I have the worst luck or what?

So in all of my relationships i’ve been faithful and going just as fast as my girlfriend wants to go. i stand up for them and pick them up when they’re down. The thing is they always leave me or were just “pretending to like me.” (quote were comments i got from most gf’s) The relationship i was in i felt like i never had before in my life. she was perfect. then some a**hole started talking s*** about her and was touching her. he WAS a good friend of mine. i asked him to stop and she was in tears he hit me i kicked his a**. but then she ditched me for no apparent reason. why do i have rotten luck. it as if i should be single for the rest of life. please help

Suzi Q answers:

I’m answering this on my girlfriend’s account, but I’ve been in the same position as you. Totally sweet to my girlfriend buying them gifts being there to talk to, and then they dump me for a d-bag. I know you think you’ll never feel the same about any other girl, but you will get over her, and find someone who appreciates your sympathy and your love. And that will be the one who makes you forget about all your past exes and the pain they caused.





Michael asks…

My house, or Family…Generations of Bad luck..spell or prayer?

Ever since I could remember My family has bad luck, well ever since we moved into our house, We’ll we are no going to move, so do you know a good spell, not evil. Help me and my family. so you know bad luck happenes to my dad alot!

Examples of Bad luck… Car crash, dad’s chipped knuckle, dad’s bruised foot- nearly got killed. Dad’s forewheeler flipped, baby rabbits died like over 30 because of winter and fighting over food, Recamended to go to summer school,not enough money to put other cars on the road.

I have blessings thou like our computer, a new used car, music!! My friends and everyone is still alive.

I was in the car crash. Had a headache for a week

Suzi Q answers:

I am doing a bible study on the use of the tongue, and it says that the power of life and death on in the tongue.

Proverbs 18:21
)Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Are you having negative thoughts on life in general. Do you say blessings over your family, friends and yourself? That might be a huge key there. As you might be cursing yourself with how you feel about life.





Joseph asks…

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Never in my life have I insulted anyone, and I have never made anyone cry. I am a true person of God and I have so much belief for him, I pray for hours each night just for thanks to be a live. I care about others before my self and donate to charities and everything.

My sister on the other hand is such a mean, she makes everyone cry even my mom and dad daily. she is insulting people all the time and has so much hate.

She wins everything, I have never won anything, everything in her life goes better than the way she wants it, everything in my life is so hard and goes the opposite of the way I want it. I am living with a terrible disease which will be with me forever and her blood tests are perfect. All my life I’ve been so much of a better person. She has always been mean and spiteful whereas I’ve always been kind and bubbly and to help others.

I am sick of my life, I truly am! I try to think positive and think maybe if I think positive, my life will go that way but nothing helps. I read the bible and watch my The secret by Rhonda Byrne. but I don’t know what to do or where to go anymore. Life is getting tougher for me daily, living with a disease which makes me weak and nothing. Bad luck comes to me daily, I don’t remember the last time I was happy and excited cause something went my way, I don’t think I have ever said to my self “Look I am lucky” cause nothing good has come to me, I swear to that.

I do think with God by my side everything will go right and my way in the end, and I can do anything though Christ who strengthens me.

But what is causing so many bad things to happen to me am I doing something wrong, Am I being TOO nice perhaps. And I am not feeling too sorry for my self because I know
a lot of people have it a lot worse than I do.

Thank you and God bless.

Suzi Q answers:

I’m sorry that you’re unhappy with how things are. The truth is being a kind person does not mean you are more likely (or less likely) to have lucky things happen to you. For example if you and your sis both bought lottery tickets you’d both be equally likely to win. Being good doesn’t guarantee you a happy life and in many way it limits you. My advice would be maybe be a bit more selfish, don’t feel guilty for enjoying yourself and doing what you want to do, if you don’t feel like praying for hours then don’t! If readin bible seems like a chore then don’t bother just try to enjoy yourself.
Luck usually evens itself out eventually and if you’re nice to others then at least you’ll have plenty of people who like you. I’m not trying to corrupt you here or pull you over to the dark side but I’d hate for you to look back and wish you could have been more daring and had more fun. I used to be very good too but recently I’ve let go a bit more and things are much more interesting!
Incidentally don’t you think The Secret is a load of rubbish?





George asks…

Why do good people have such bad luck?

It seems that the smart, attractive, intelligent people I know- the good people that seem to do the right thing always have sauch unfortunate, hard things happen to them in this life. Is it true that maybe cause these people are so strong they are only dealt what they can handle?

Suzi Q answers:

Thomas Jefferson said that the more i prepare, the more luck i seem to have. This is a state of mind and nothing else, if you are a negative person then more bad things will happen. So put on happy face and you will be good. But i don’t believe in good or bad luck, you have to make your own luck in this world.

Where did the term Pot luck come from? Is it bad?

Is there a website on interesting facts such as how and from where sayings/customs/myths originated from?

Luvli Mystii answers:

What ever was available was thrown into the pot over the fire. Pot luck described what supper was and especially if there was any meat in it.

Any other sayings out there?

Luvli Mystii answers:

It means you are pregnant. Congratulations!





Laura asks…

Is it bad luck to be superstitious?

To elabourate on that i mean, do you think that sayings such as “It’s bad luck to walk underneath ladders” only apply if you believe them? Or is it just perhaps that walking underneath a ladder increases the likelyhood of something being dropped on you?

Luvli Mystii answers:

Walking under ladders is a big no no to me, once when I was younger, I had to take Sunday lunch to mu Nan. I walked around a ladder tripped over the curb feel flat on my face with the dinner and have a scar on my chin to prove it. It didn’t put me off I still avoid them





Joseph asks…

Just luck, or should I return it?

Bought a new LCD46inch Samsung from best buy this weekend. When I get it back to the house I realized it was not the same model I paid for but, a completely different model, a much better one then I paid for. I have bought a lot of stuff from best buy in the past, even worked at a best buy in college. Should I return the TV for the TV I bought? or should I keep the better Model and write it off as good luck, the bonus I never got from working at Bestbuy in college?

Betty asks…

what’s the point of knowing your “lucky number” and how do magazines know what your lucky number is? and why?

would your lucky number change every few days or weeks? wtf?

Suzi Q answers:

It’s all made up. The magazines invent it to sell you more magazines. There’s no such thing as a lucky number, especially a lucky number that someone tells you that you have. I think that if there was a lucky number to you, you’d know what it was without some magazine telling you what it was.





Nancy asks…

Xtians: if people are unlucky, you excuse God for his absence, when people are lucky, you attribute it to God.?

How is this different from a world in which people live in a Godless world experiencing good and bad luck?

For example: a real life case of a girl’s hand severed in an accident (link below). The girl is bleeding and screaming. Where was God? Why didn’t he prevent it?

Why, when doctors reattach the hand, it appears that certain people suddenly find God intervening (guiding the doctors, someone claimed that today). Why did God allow the girl to have the misery and pain in the first place? Intense horrible pain. Failure to prevent such pain when you can is surely negligent child-abuse of the highest order. I fail to see why someone who is able to prevent extreme pain in a small child can suddenly be praised, when they belatedly get up off their ass and do something and she has gone through considerable suffering. Is God lazy? Is he sadistic?

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26850113/

Please don’t quote huge chunks of the Bible. No one will read it.
Maybe that girl deserved it??? You’re sick. Really really sick. Tell that to her mother.
How is the accident God’s fault? Didn’t say it was. If the claims hold any truth, he can surely keep a jump rope away from a wheel. Why didn’t he prevent it? If I could, I would.

Suzi Q answers:

When geese destroy not one but both engines of an airliner, God isn’t cited, but when the pilot by his own skill manages to land the craft in the Hudson and save all passengers, it’s a miracle. The pilot stated that he didn’t waste a moment in prayer, he was too busy trying to save the aircraft.





Nancy asks…

No I’m not superstitious

Paul asks…

good luck?

is there such a thing as good luck? And what is lucky? are there any sites about luckiness and superstitios things to being good luck your way?

Suzi Q answers:

There r 2 theoreis, instains and another.
One says that evrything happens because u make it happen in a comletley unpredictable way, that means that there is luck.

The other says that the future already happened, and now we’re waiting for it to happen to us (in our time), that means that there is no luck, just a series of things that are meant to be and cannot be changed.

Allround, i prefer the one that says that there is luck couse otherwise there is no point of continuing.

Maria asks…

How do you get good luck in raffles?

I need good luck for a St Jude Dream Home giveaway THIS saturday! Help! I really want to win it so my sisters finally get their own rooms and we can have a new start for a non-cluttered house. PLEASE help a person in need of a larger house!! PLEASE give me good luck ideas AND wih me good luck. Please!

Suzi Q answers:

You want a philosophical answer…well here it is…most people sit around waiting for the white horse to ride in and save them….basically you think you deserve a strike of chance, you think that you’ve been through allot so now it’s time to win the reward…well guess what… Odds of that are 99.99 percent against you, and if your going to linger on odds that bad, you really need some help.

How do i know this…well i sat around waiting for the big break to come for about 3 years, until i finally got some brains and realized that i have to take care of my own problems, and pave my own life, rather then waiting to win the lottery. We all think we deserve something…maybe we do and maybe we don’t, but we should never sit around waiting for other people to help us out. Or waiting for that winning raffle ticket.

Mandy asks…

Is it good or bad luck to bring peacock feathers into your home?

I’ve heard both sides to this question, but still don’t know about the answer to this superstition. My Irish grandmother always had at least one peacock feather, because she firmly believed it would bring good luck. Other people have told me opposite of what she believed. Does anyone out there know which is true or where the superstition originally came from?

Suzi Q answers:

Well, it isn’t good luck for the peacock.

Suzi Q answers:

I’m in awe of your wit. And I’m not even being sarcastic. That’s a really good slogan.

Good luck coin?????????

I found a coin and did some resarch and it is a 1930s good luck coin

On the front it has a fourtune teller on it looking into a crystal ball with a swastika
And on the back it has a horseshoe, rabbit’s foot,wish bone,swastika,elephant, 4 leaf clover and a heart w/a key

Does this coin have any value?

Suzi Q answers:

It is a collectible item but is out side the norm for the general coin collecting public. There are specialists out there. Seems to me I have seen it for sale time to time on ebay and values go from $5-$20 depending on grade and size.





Good Luck

Sharon asks…

The significance of numbers in Japan?

What is the significance of certain numbers in Japan? For example, I know 4 is associated with death, and 9 means despair or something like that. 3 is lucky? (I don’t know about this one) What about the rest of the numbers? Would someone avoid having a wedding on a certain day like 4/9 or 4/4, or does it not really matter?

I rent an extra parking space at the apartment building next door to my house and my space is number 5, but only because they skipped 4. I see this a lot in parking lots.





Nancy asks…

can you help me think of up a bad luck fortune cookie?

i need to think up a prediction with an ominous tone
something that sounds like “you will be a failure in life” but it has to sound chinese-ish as if it were a real proverb

Thanks in advance
