Luck is nothing but a constraint and we all are like elements of a sum of conditional probability. In other words, we all are just dependent variables reacting to other dependent and independent variables.
Smallest of our actions create a ripple effect in the interconnected network of human interactions and results in a big wave.
Let’s say, you woke up late and missed the bus- small thing right? Now, what if that bus meets with an accident? What if you could still manage to get on that bus? Not a small thing anymore, isn’t it?
You can’t control the independent variables but that shouldn’t stop you from achieving your goals.
If you imagine luck as a constraint and become too much dependent on it then it will hinder your progress like a shackle.
On the other hand, if you think of luck as an opportunity where you have the freedom of taking your own “so-called” risky decisions then it will help you grow as an individual.
Yes, there will be other dependent and independent variables that may cause problems, but there will be no ‘regrets’. After all, it’s our decisions that make the difference!
