Default OT: Do you believe in luck?

Paul and I are having a heated discussion, he says no such thing is luck you make your own, I beg to differ.

From my personal experiences based on my peers from college and the people around me, some people just happen to be at the right place at the right time and seem to get things handed to them (luck). Others have to work twice as hard to achieve the same things. Not that it's not achievable just happens to be bad luck.

It's like the whole thing with kids who are born to rich affluent families (though I think all North Americans are affluent compared to other places in the world) get things easier because their daddy does business with a guy who needs some help for his business. Luck. Some kid who doesn't have the same background has to REALLY shine in order to get noticed because in the real world it's all about who you know not what you know.

How many people can say they've never been shafted because of what the chinese call "Guanxi"?

On the same token there's people who are born into poverty... that's a sign of un luckiness. They didn't choose, they just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
