Good Luck Symbols.

Going back to ancient times almost every instance was examined to see if it was an indication of either good or bad luck.

Seeing two magpies, finding a four leaf clover or a bird flying in the sky was considered a sign or omen. These are just a few examples of good luck symbols. When we talk about luck we think of all the good things in life and that lady luck will provide us with luck.  Who is lady luck? Lady luck comes from a 1940’s comic by Will Eisner. He wrote two stories about the lady luck who was voted one of the most sexiest women in comic history.

This comic was part of the Sunday newspaper, called the spirit section. This was a sixteen page tabloid newsprint comic book and reached around five million. The reason I have mentioned  Lady Luck is that in African American hoodoo an oil was made to bring luck to those that gambled. Anyway going back to good luck symbols. Luck is beyond someone’s control. There are different types of luck which can befall someone. If you happen to be in “ignorance of luck,” it means luck with factors which you are not aware of and can only be exemplified by perception.

Constitutional luck refers to luck with factors which cannot be changed however hard someone tries, examples are star sign, place of birth, the type of family you are born in. Circumstantial luck refers to luck which is brought about by circumstances one may find themselves in examples of this type of luck is accidents and epidermic.

Many cultures and religions all over the world share this believe that, prayer can change circumstances and bring about good luck. Some involve rituals of sacrificing, spells and omens in order to attract good luck. Some people believe that, whatever they are doing will influence how they will get lucky.

Causes of Bad Luck: As much as we have good luck, there is also the other side of bad luck. Bad luck fails to activate the causes of good luck. It is important to understand that, sometimes events just happen, which we don’t have control over and there is no need to place blame or make excuses for plain old bad luck. Most people tend to blame circumstances and activities and put this down to bad luck, without pinpointing their own contribution and what has befallen them. Taking responsibility is the best way to avoid the blame game when it comes to bad luck. The habit of concentrating on looking for whom or what to blame is no good because it makes people to avoid responsibility and seek out solutions.

Bad luck hinders one from moving forward and thus, prevents success to happen. It is against the three steps towards success: Taking action. Taking responsibility. Learning a lesson. Now with all said, everyone around the world is struggling to avoid bad luck in order to be successful in life. And with that, there are thousands of good luck symbols around the world which different cultures believe that, will definitely make them lucky throughout life.
