Eliyahu Goldratt said “Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation, while bad luck is when lack of preparation meets reality.”
It makes sense, but what do you make of the apparent good luck of being born in a stable and developped country compaing to a war torn country? Or being a passenger on a ship that sinks?
At the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, a Canadian ice crew Trent Evans placed a loonie, Canada’s one dollar coin under the surface at centre ice for good luck. Both the men’s and women’s hockey teams won gold, the coin is now housed at the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the "Lucky Loonie" became a legend.
Belief in the power of luck or fortune is why sociologist Reginald Bibby found 47% of Canadians and 30% of Americans believe in astrology and horoscopes, which purport to divine when individuals will succeed or fail in relationships and business. Study shows belief in good luck was not related to general optimism, academic pessimism, self-esteem, desire for control, or achievement motivation. There was also evidence that belief in good luck was distinct from feeling fortunate or generally satisfied with one’s life. People who believe in personal good luck react to lucky events by becoming more positive about the likelihood of future.
Scott Barry Kaufman wrote an article on March 1, 2018: The Role of Luck in Life Success Is Far Greater Than We Realized. In it, he mentioned: In recent years, a number of studies and books--including those by risk analyst Nassim Taleb, investment strategist Michael Mauboussin, and economist Robert Frank-- have suggested that luck and opportunity may play a far greater role than we ever realized, across a number of fields, including financial trading, business, sports, art, music, literature, and science. Their argument is not that luck is everything; of course talent matters. Instead, the data suggests that we miss out on a really importance piece of the success picture if we only focus on personal characteristics in attempting to understand the determinants of success.
While Robert H. Frank wront in his May 2016 The Atlantic magazine article titled Why Luck Matters More Than You Might Think: When people see themselves as self-made, they tend to be less generous and public-spirited.
Historically, human use good luck charms to protect themselves from the evil eye, a malicious glare that was believed to cause harm. Or to increase the likelihood of good fortune. Behind every good luck charm is not only a superstition or fear, but a deep-rooted history connected to the charm’s origin and the culture from which it came. Good luck charms can evolve from folklore, legend, and even religion. LAVISHY believe in hardwork and preparation. We also celebrate good luck and be grateful.
