    I believe in blessings. I believe God rewards us according to the good we do in
    our life. Our level of faith determines our portion of blessings. If we have faith in God and do good we will be rewarded accordingly.

    Yes. . .but not by that specific name/descriptor. I believe there are people who benefit disproportionately from good 'fortune.'

    When you win the lottery you are lucky. I think it just odds though.

    I sure use to because I always felt that everything happened to me, oh poor me. As I grew spiritually and stopped being pessimistic, everything changed. Our thoughts create our reality, so if your in the mind set that everything bad happens to you, and the world sucks and on and on, you know the type, that is exactly what is going to manifest in your world. I'm not saying nothing bad happens to me, heck I'm 53 and housebound from a medical condition, but it's my attitude towards life in general that keeps me feeling like I'm still one of the"luckiest" guys in the world, and by "lucky" I mean fortunate.. Everything that exists started out as a thought, so keep thinking that every thing bad is going to happen to you, it probably will. My transition didn't happen over night, it didn't actually start to happen until I had my accident (1993) and became disabled, you would think it would have been the other way around. I had to dig real deep for many years, but I wouldn't be alive today if I didn't change my outlook on life itself. So, Luck no, thoughts and Blessings yes!

    Good and bad luck. I also believe we often make our own luck by the decisions we make along the way.

    The saying is, "The harder you work, the luckier you get." Any series of circumstances you cannot control which work out to your benefit is luck.
    I have always had an angel watching over me. I often refer to her as 'Luck.' At age thirteen, on my way to Texas from California on freight trains, at one point between El Paso and Sierra Blanca, Texas, I was forced to jump from the last of four engines pulling a moving train. It was nighttime but, luckily the freight train was going up a pretty steep grade and moving only about twenty miles per hour. I let myself down until my feet just touched the ground then, holding on to the step, ran as fast as I could. I let go of the rung and immediately grabbed for the ladder on the next car. Luckily I grabbed it and climbed to the top and wasn't thrown under the train.
    I was drunk one time after playing low ball poker. About one a m I got in my car and headed home. I was going about 70 miles per hour when I saw I was going to miss my turn. I locked the brakes and cut the steering wheel hard to the right. The Buick slid sideways and it stopped about one inch from a stop sign. I could touch the post by only barely putting my hand out the window. Luckily, though, I got home all right.
    I dove off a 15 foot cliff into the Tuolumne River once ...

    I dove off a 15 foot cliff into the Tuolumne River once when the water was very high in the spring of 1949. My head rammed into a submerged log which was floating a foot below the surface. I was knocked completely unconscious. Luckily the cold water revived me and I swam to the shore.
    My angel has always been here for me. Sometimes I call her, "Luck."

    I think that many situations where someone thought they had won something by LUCK, it was really more that they had been at the right place at the right time. I think situations present themselves and it is up to us to take advantage and be "lucky". I do believe in Karma however. And when we choose to do the right thing, and even just randomly do nice things for others, at some point we will reap the benefits of our good deeds.

    People can enhance their chances of a situation turning out positively, but in the general sense of a force other than random chance, no.

    I didn't always believe that some people were inherently 'lucky'. However, 20 plus years ago I became unwittingly involved in what turned out to be a testement on 'lucky people'. This took the form of a random drawing at my workplace. Over these years I have come to see that certain people are more likely to win than others.

    If we conducted an experiment and had every person flipping pennies forever (to infinity), eventually everyone would flip 1000 head in a row. If we repeated that experiment an infinite number of times eventually everyone would be the first to flip 1000 heads. To believe that the first person in the very first experiment who flipped 1000 heads is "lucky" is the same as believing in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy.

    The fact that 58% of people responded "yes" to this question explains why our politics is corrupt, or environment polluted, why there are so many deadly wars.
    58% of people are stupid.
    why you so stupid
