Being lucky: a simple expression?

We all want to be lucky. But do we really know what is hidden behind these few words?

For many, this is a simple expression: a sentence empty of meaning... and therefore luck!

Luck is a more complicated concept to understand than we might think.

Linked to chance, destiny and the supernatural, it is said that luck favors the bold. And that's absolutely true.

In life, to be lucky, you have to know how to seize opportunities, create situations where fate will want to favor you.

Everyone likes the brave, but no one (not even chance) likes the reckless.

To this question “What is luck?” ”, we could therefore say that it is something done with will and knowledge.

So be sure to raise your level of awareness, on this subject at least, and understand that “being lucky” is a reality for which you must be proactive, much more than just an expression.

You can rely on luck, yes, but not without conscious will.

Any psychology professor worth their salt will tell you to get out of your comfort zone, and they'll be right.

Little philosophical definition of luck

We are lucky when happy events happen in our lives through the twist of fate.

From a moral point of view, this reflection is incomplete.

Here is a philosophical definition of luck: “Luck is the consequence of actions and facts of which we have no idea, but which do exist”.

We are here far from simple probabilities which would cause failures or successes...

Indeed, nothing exists in the world by chance, not even luck.

If we refer to the scientific laws of the world (and its principle of causality), every action has an origin.

Just because we don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

The same goes for luck.

Karma, balance of the universe, law of universal attraction: call it what you want, but the reality behind this philosophical definition of luck is simple.

You must be positive for the world, and the world will smile at you.

To the question “What is luck?” ", we can here bring notions of exchange, balance and causality.

Being lucky is a state of mind.

Luck through lucky charms?

Nothing will replace kindness, shared love and good deeds.

However, there are some accelerated methods to get lucky. Using lucky charms is one of them.

Our entire project is also centered on this subject: the knowledge of lucky charms.

We therefore present several types of jewelry (to suit everyone), lucky charms from all over the world and depicting all spiritualities.

Perhaps this collection of pendants will allow you to find the object that will bring you luck.

No doubt this set of objects from ancient civilizations will speak to you.

What if it was these lucky charms from Chinese Feng Shui that were made for you?

In short, we see it here: provoking luck is a proactive approach in which we can put “spiritual” but also very “concrete” actions, for example through the use of lucky charms.

Having better luck is therefore not necessarily complicated.

If you're already a lucky person, good for you. (And besides, we would like to know your techniques!)

If, on the other hand, this is not the case, if bad luck strikes your life, you now know where to start.

Luck is definitely something that we all experience at certain times in our lives, and leaves us at others.
