Quotes About Luck

The majority of people believe in good fortune.

Even those who swear they don’t believe in superstitions are often guilty of them, such as avoiding walking under a staircase, keeping new shoes off the table, and not allowing a black cat to cross their path. These are the old wives’ tales that many of us have grown with, and we follow them without question, whether or not we believe they would improve our luck.

Whether there is a metaphysical basis for luck or it is solely a psychological phenomenon, one universal truth remains: everyone enjoys feeling fortunate.

Confidence and the feeling that luck goes hand in hand. And, fortunately, we may boost our confidence by focusing on what we desire and working hard. The million-dollar question is whether or if this enhances our luck.

However, we must keep in mind that feeling unfortunate can be a mindset; a reasonable reaction to being unprepared for the responsibilities ahead of us. And that is something we have the power to alter.

Take risks and be brave, and you’ll discover that situations will often support your ambitions. As the saying goes, fortune favors the brave. Adopt a growth attitude, in which obstacles are always opportunities to learn and progress.

Whenever an opportunity to put yourself to the test presents itself, try to imagine that it is also a stroke of luck.

We’ve compiled a list of the best quotations to help in understanding luck and how to harness its power.
