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.
The idea of luck is great as a one off thing but if you grow to rely on it you’ll end up becoming lazy and disappointed.
You’ll be lazy because you’ll live your life assuming that you don’t have to try so hard because luck will balance things out for you.
And you’ll be disappointed because at some point things won’t balance out and you’ll be left wondering why?
Luck isn’t sustainable to rely on for the life you want but it’s great as an addition to a life you’ve worked for.
Luck is like the icing without the cake or the digestive biscuit without the chocolate, you’re perfectly fine without it.
Granted, there’s nothing wrong with holding the belief that things will turn out swimmingly but you can’t really expect that when you’ve taken the do nothing approach.
