Luck is

  1. A force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person’s life, shaping a perception of circumstances, events, or opportunities.
  2. Success or failure that occurs by chance, or randomness, rather than through one’s own actions.
  3. Good fortune; advantage or success.


  • Who is doing the shaping, is there a universal plan or force behind everything?
  • What is chance, other than the occurrence of something which could be accidental or planned, depending on how you see it!

Some examples:

“After seven lucky occurrences in which I met the same person, my life changed” (Or is that another word for synchronicity, or a divine plan?)

“It was lucky the kick went into goal.” (after 10,000 hours of commitment and training, that is luck?)
