Luck over time is inevitable. We all get lucky at some point in life. If you show up with good work and generous action. Sooner or later, something that appears to others to be lucky will appear. It is said to be a symptom of productive contributions. It rarely happens when you need it most or in equal proportion to what feels fair (to you or others), but it happens. The trap is hoping that a short-term focus on getting lucky on demand will pay off. A good example, in cases of betting.
Many define luck as an event brought by chance rather than action. Wikipedia’s description is. The phenomenon that defines the experience of positive, negative, or improbable events. The naturalistic interpretation is that positive and negative events happen all the time in human lives, both due to random and non-random, natural and artificial processes. That even improbable events can happen by random chance.

I find the best definition to be; luck is when preparedness meets opportunity. Luck often happens when you have prepared for a thing. When an opportunity that aligns with what you have prepared for presents itself. You can seize the moment. The act of preparedness, in this case, may vary from aligning to the thing in mind. To actual work, lots of effort, hours, and investment put towards the attainment of a specific goal. Then there is the feeling of being lucky that brings luck. A good example again of luck would be in bets. Many people bet hoping to get lucky and win a jackpot, they pray, and some believe and act in faith. To some extent, that can be qualified as an effort. There is a slight probability of getting lucky. But there can be another person who has placed the bet and studied it. If it is a card game, chances are they know all they need to know about cards. If it is a random bet on numbers, they have researched and mastered the law of averages on it. Giving them a higher probability of winning.

You can affirm luck in your life and prepare for it. Put the effort that aligns with the thing desired, then be open to receive. Expect a surprise or better, invoke the law of surprises. Expect signs of luck like a four-leaf clover, a ladybird or lady luck cross your path once in a while, feel lucky. You can also recite abundance affirmations. Some good affirmations that go well with luck or positive expectancy are. “I am wide awake to my good, I never miss a trick” or “something good is about to happen”. Have a lucky day.
