Yes. I believe in luck, and i can sum them up Success = Effort + Luck. If you have the luck but you fail to do your homework, then there is no success in you story.


I absolutely agree with Davidebert. From my own experience I can add that some people are just born lucky. Unfortunately, I'm not. And it concerns not only gambling. Things don't come easy to me, I always have to work hard to achieve something, but I know some people who get everything they want easily and almost without putting in any effort.

Luck is a word, but a good word. Technically there may not be such a thing as randomness either. That's just theoretical, involves leaving the universe to be able to understand the entire universe you left, as it can't be done from within. I sound like a nut, the possibilities are endless or impossible. Love this stuff, hologram universe, simulation universe, etc., etc. If this is not reality, where is reality, etc. Elan Musk talks like me all the time. I find it funny.

I believe in luck, but in a little different meaning of it.
The luck is driven by forces we still don't know or/and don't understand.

There is no luck, it's not driven by anything.
My brother lost his wallet at a gas station
yesterday. Today, when he was talked down
from the ledge he was going to jump from,
he went back there and somebody had
turned it in. He's a truck driver and it had
his CDL and he would have been out of work
till he got it replaced. Everything was in
the wallet, nothing gone.

Good luck? Nope, just coincidence, like everything
in life.

Why can't you just say luck=good coincidence, so therefore luck exists? I understand luck is a description, not a determination, but just a word.

Luck didn't take a touchdown away from Pittsburgh and didn't make Big Ben throw an interception, but the Patriots seemed lucky to beat Pittsburgh.

Do I not understand the debate? Or is there not a debate and is there just a disagreement about what the word means?

We agree.

That’s stressful. If luck truly meant anything, and it doesn’t, seems like he’d have been more, ‘Lucky,’ to just have a typical day in which he didn’t lose his wallet at all.

Thus the idiomatic expression born under a lucky star.
