Is good luck a choice?

Recommended Posts

This weekend I had a conversation with friends that came up when we had a get together at the beach. My friend stood up, took a deep breath and said how lucky we are to live in the beautiful city of Barcelona sharing all these amazing experiences. I agreed while another girl said that she thinks good luck is a choice as she choose to live and build her life here just as it is. But I don't think that everybody has the same privilege of "good luck" as for example I do.

In my case, I grew up in a stable environment, we never had financial trouble and on top of that my German passport that gives me the opportunity to live, work and travel easily all over the world. I am very grateful for that and for sure do choose to be happy and live a lucky life. However, I am not sure if "good luck" always comes down to a choice.

What do you think about that...?

We are fundamentally the product of randomness AKA luck. Just think how your parents meet each other and conceived you, how your grandparents meet each other ... and so on. We unique individuals are the result of a very long chain of ancestors with a lot of circumstances involved.

interesting question. I think it's both. Good luck and a choice. For example I live in Barcelona because it was my own choice, yes. I did it because I followed an inner voice even my parents were against it. But I admit that I had also good luck in my life. Just the fact that I was born healthy is good luck and a lot of lucky circumstances happend afterwards.
