DO WE MAKE OUR LUCK, OR DOES IT MAKE US? Searching for luck is something we all begin doing at an early age. We see things almost every day that seem to turn on a lucky break, but does luck even exist? Is it a physical force? Is it a mystical phenomenon? Most importantly, what might we do as individuals to cause luck to treat us differently? Astrologists, palm readers, and crystal ball-gazers all try to predict our luck. Some pray to a Higher Power to bring good fortune. Many others believe any luck we receive is due to our own persistence in the presence of an opportunity. Others believe luck is simply happenstance. Luck is difficult to identify before it arrives. After luck passes, its residue remains for each of us to sort out for ourselves - were we lucky or not? This book explores how we attempt to win luck's favor, as well as how we try to make the best of the situation before us. These pages will describe the many forms in which luck can appear, and how it inspires us, impacts us, and very often changes us. Because luck is a uniquely personal pursuit, your task, as a reader, will be to analyze your own life's circumstances and assess how, when, why - or even if - you have been lucky.
