I have heard lot of people telling me
‘He is so lucky to get that job’ or ‘How lucky he is to live a happy life’ or ‘Wow, he is really lucky and that will lead him to success’. Honestly I don’t give a thing about it and don’t believe in this myth at all. It’s just rubbish.

How can you underestimate a person so much and believe that he is lucky ? That’s the most absurd thing at all. We have never been in his shoes and haven’t walked his life. Then how can we claim that he was lucky ?

The thing is this – there is no such thing as luck, believe me. It’s just a cooked up myth to protect ourselves from falling into the pit of guilt for not being to be an opportunist. Yes, that is what it is, opportunity. That is what makes you lucky.

If you seize the opportunity and act accordingly, the chances of you being lucky are higher. This is the simplest math. If you want it, you have to go for it, wait patiently and seize it before some else seize it. Now, that’s not that hard. You just got to have the right mindset and be prepared, that is all that you need to do.

So in the future if someone tells you that he just got lucky, consider him to be a good opportunist who nailed the situation perfectly.

  1. A good post – well composed and quite inspiring! By the way, luck or opportunity are words employed to reflect one’s thoughts depending upon one’s own perception of results or end-situation, and hence, could be construed as subjective in nature. Keep blogging Abhijith – way to go!

  2. This was a very well done piece. Your philosophy of luck definitely has it’s truths lol and I would agree. Luck is something all of us have. It’s a mindset. Law of attraction per say as luck is what we make it to be and is something we create for ourselves. Love the post.

  3. This is spot on! I find that “luck” tends to be the result of saying yes to things and not overthinking things too much. Great work, and thanks for following my blog! πŸ™‚

  4. I don’t believe in luck either. That’s what I told my students last year. They either work hard to achieve their dreams or stay lazy and blame “luck” for not getting what they want – which should technically mean blaming themselves since “luck” doesn’t really exist.
