Do you believe in luck, or that you control your own destiny?

The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, is a book that stresses that we need to really envision our future successes, staying focused and positive in order for the universe to eventually bring us our dreams.

Do you think that pessimistic people blame “bad luck” when they should really be blaming their attitude and lack of hard work?

Tennis player Serena Williams attributed a 2007 match loss to her shoelaces being tied incorrectly.

“I didn’t tie my laces right, and I didn’t bounce the ball five times and I didn’t bring my shower sandals to the court with me,” Williams said after the match, according to the British Sunday Express. “I didn’t have my extra dress. I just knew fate. It wasn’t going to happen.”

Do you attribute your own successes thus far to good luck, or hard work?

We would love to hear your thoughts on this age old topic!
