Do you believe there is luck?
Do you not believe in luck, but only in fate? Do you think there's no good or bad luck but just fate? Do you think that everything that will happen is written from the very start?
Or perhaps, do you believe in both luck and fate?
Or maybe neither of them?

Well, time to ask yourselves. Luck could mean both bad luck and good luck.

if you're thinking only bad things occur around you, do you think its because of bad luck? Or do you think that God hates you so he's punished you by writing your destiny the moment you are born?

Or if only good things happen around you, do you think thats your good luck? Or the God absolutely adores you? Or is it because of your ability/traits that good things happen around you?

For me, I do not believe in fate or luck. I think everything that we do is what defines us and sets our path. Most of the times, if bad things happen, we are the ones to instigate them. Or if good things happen, we are the one who have worked hard to attain such happiness.

Of course, I'm aware that there are people that live a horrible life despite having done nothing wrong, or people who enjoy their life from their birth to their death without doing any good deed. However, I find it impossible to believe in something superficial such as luck or fate. For me, that's how my life has been; do something wrong and you face bad things or do something good and be blessed with happiness. I usually do use the phrase 'been lucky enough' or stuff but I don't mean that I'm lucky--its just a habit of mine to use that phrase.

This question has no answer, but that doesn't stop us from debating and discussing over it. I'm attaching a poll, but that doesn't mean you should just vote in it. Share your opinion, and help us get to know you better.

I honestly think chance determines luck.

Chance? Are you referring to chance such as winning or losing a lottery? Then, chance is something that we have no control over.

So you have no control over your luck is what you're saying? Sorry, I'm just a bit confused.

I believe luck to a certain extent. But if you put in the hard work it will never fail you.

I have come to the conclusion that luck does not exist. Ever heard of the domino effect? That's what I'm about. One person does something that interacts with another and so on (whether it be a good thing or bad).

I like to believe that everything happens for a reason, and that whenever there is a reaction, there will always be a reaction. As a Catholic I might just be bias about this (Which is most likely the case but here me out) I believe in luck, chance, faith and all that jazz. Of course, that doesn't mean you can't forge your own path, just that no matter where you are or what you do, these things will always be there to either help or hurt you

I believe in luck as I got lucky I caught my bus on time.
