Why Do I Have Bad Luck? 2 Simple Things to Change Your Destiny
Bad luck can be pretty difficult to cope with, particularly when it seems to be targeting you and no one else. My mother always said that bad luck comes in bouts of three. It does often seem that way, too, though perhaps I have convinced myself of this theory. There have been times on a two-string streak of bad luck where I end up hanging around waiting for the third to come along. Negative thinking. You lose your phone, then get hit with an unexpected bill, and then fall over and bump your knee. Told you!
I've found that the harder I work, the more I have of it. None of us are lucky all of the time, but there's not doubt that some people tend to be luckier than others. You might say, it's not fair. Or you might take a look at how they look at life and ask yourself whether it's the way they see the world that is helping them get luckier in it. The truth is that lucky people aren't lucky by sheer accident. They're lucky because of the mindset they bring to life. As Martin Seligman, the founder of positive psychology once wrote, "Optimists endure the same storms in life as pessimists.
But is there really such a thing as chronic bad luck, and if so, why do some people seem to be plagued by it? I dont think there's such a thing as bad luck, everyone has bad misfortunes, but those who are negative and always bitter tend to see everything in a bad way. Therefore they complain they have bad luck or that their life sucks. It's all about being positive and being happy with what you have. Sometimes stuff happens because of the actions of others and sometimes people themselves make silly choices and don't recognize their mistakes. The old adage that" luck is where preparation meets opportunity" is true.
First, I'm no expert at psychology or anything; just a normal guy who believes, like you, that bad luck and misfortune follow me everywhere.

Does our generation even pay attention to anything like that? I wouldn't say I'm a passionate believer in all superstitions, but the ones I do believe in, I try to avoid at all costs. To deter the bad spirits, Italians can wear a horn necklace which looks like a small chili pepper. Did you know you're supposed to get out of your bed on the same EXACT side you hopped in, or you will have bad luck for the entire day? This superstition is pretty well known, but the groom is not supposed to see his bride before the wedding. Didn't anybody tell the photographers who are doing first looks for every wedding about this casually important information?! It's bad luck to sleep on a table.
Do you believe in luck? Do you attribute the good events in your life to good luck and the negative events to bad luck? A couple of years ago, I experienced such a series of bad events. I had applied for a scholarship to study abroad and met all the requirements for the scholarship. All that stood between me and the scholarship was a single test that I was very sure I would ace. This affected my ability to prepare adequately for the test, and I even had to take the test while under medication. To make matters worse, I had applied for the scholarship together with my then girlfriend, and she aced the test and snagged the scholarship.
If you believe in bad luck, you're more likely to suffer bad luck. Most of us probably are familiar with Job, the Biblical character whose faith was deliberately tested with misfortunes. First, marauders stole his oxen and donkeys, and killed his servants. Then, a wind swept in and collapsed his house, killing his sons and daughters. If that wasn't enough, he then was afflicted with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.
