Do you believe some people are more fortunate than others or do you think people create their own luck? In your opinion, are some people cursed?

Luck... What is luck? What defines luck? I cannot state that there is no such thing as luck, as the concept of luck does exist... to an extent. I remember I had unfortunate events rolling one after another uncontrollably for sometime and no matter what I did to avoid it, the events were purely out of my control. So... perhaps there are those who are more fortunate than others, or just fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time to hear the right piece of advice to make their lives better. Now, cursed is a bit strong word and to say that someone is "cursed" is mighty bold. I don't know if I believe is someone being cursed because I think a large part of being cursed is actually believe that you are cursed. If ones strongly believes that they are cursed then they fall into a pattern of unfortunate events happening over and over again. That part will become true because of, what we sociologist label, "the Self-fulfilled Prophecy." Don't want to feel cursed? Take matters into your own hands. When life hands you lemons, learn to make lemonade... with a lot of sugar in it to sweeten it up a bit. That's what I think.

Take care everyone.

I can agree with what you said, I guess luck is one of those words that people coined to try and make sense of the world. That and serendipity.
