Most definitely, you see it all the time, someone gets a job because they know somebody in the company. That sir is that factor I sum up to luck. You may be qualified and what not but you were unlucky that they had someone who applied for the job who is connected.

There's the just plain unexplainable luck, like being born into a wealthy family

I guess you could say that in the end it is just a statistical outcome where you define the result as better than average.

I personally believe that Luck is a skill. If you try hard enough you will be lucky!
That comes down to the whole power of attraction thing. Can't really call luck a skill though since that alone is an oxymoron. I think it all comes down to being at the right place at the right time, that doesn't require skill.
