Some things sound like a terrible idea yet actually turn out perfectly fine. I think that’s called luck.
Sometimes those that consider themselves to be lucky get into the habit of pushing the boat out. They want to push their luck as far as it can go without it going over the edge.
In other words, they want to rest the theory of being lucky until you’re not.
And if you happen to be unlucky, things can turn out pretty terrible.
I think the bottom line is that as much as feeling lucky can be liberating, as the saying goes don’t push your luck.
