What do you say? Are some people just unlucky?

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    Is this a continuation of the other threads?  Yes, I think I walk around with a cloud over my head.  However, I'm not sure that's bad luck.  I think it could be bad weather!  That said, I live in the Sunshine State.

    Sometimes bad luck is just an excuse for failure when someone hasn't lived up to his potential. 

    Sometimes bad luck is a result of poor eating habits, a risky lifestyle or irresponsible decisions.

    Is it lucky to be born into a wealthy family?  Is it unlucky to be born into poverty? The children who are born with AIDS...are they unlucky? 

    Don't we first need to define "BAD LUCK" before we can say that some people have it?  Is is "luck" if you believe in fate?  Are we pre-destined to live unlucky lives?  Are some of us being tested like Job?  However, many might say he was lucky to have been chosen, no matter how much he suffered. 

    Is bad luck really an opportunity in disguise?  In other words, if you never hit bottom & crawled around in the darkness, would you know how to climb and look for the light?

      Ok, I've posted before about Lenny the Loser, the bartedner whose luck was so bad the shift boss would call him over to the dice pit to just walk by or touch a table with a hot roll going on, and invariably, a "7 out" came right away.

      Here's a few more characters that come to mind:

      A 21 dealer got fired on her birthday, a player got her fired and later on realized he started an argument over a payoff he did not have coming. She gets out to the parking lot and her car had been stolen.

      A year goes by. Different casino, same dealer. Same player! And her car gets stolen again! On her birthday! (and the clod tried getting her fired but it didn't work in  this other casino).

      The theft rate for Corvettes and Buick Rivieras (and Harleys) at the time in Vegas was 200%. In other words, if you had a Vette and it didn't get stolen, someone else with a Vette has it stolen twice.

      ____________________________ 

      Mike:

      Gets called in to work on his night off to help do the closing for a fast food place in another town. Gets puled over by the cops for a burned out taillight, has an outstanding ticket, and the taillight turns into over a $300 fine- because he was a good worker and got called into help.

      ______________________________ 

      Another 21 dealer - parks her car, new car in the employee section of the parking lot, right where she's suppossed to. That night there's a "jumper" and he jumps off the building and lands - splatt- on her car.

      _______________________________

      "Sledge"

      A guy named "Sledge Hammer" (Steve Martin TV comedy at the time). Bets a football parlay. Has 9 out of 10 (has to hit solid) going into the late game on Sunday-  he has Denver in that game.  Denver scores what would have been a winning touchdown but the officials call an obscure penalty on elway that gets called about once every five years. The TD is nullified, Denver loses, and Sledge doesn't hit his 10-teamer.

      _______________________________

      Then of course there's the Chicago Cubs and Steve Bartman.

        Some people make bad choices. You know though if you just focus on all the bad things that happen you will draw more to you.

        If you just focus on all the bad things in your life and list them off in your head over and over again.. it will seem like you have bad luck.

         

        cure for this is start a list of all the good things that happen to you and for you.

         

        Give it a try.

        You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

          Yes = our thoughts attract like thoughts.  It doesn't cost more effort to be positive.

          love to nibble those micey feet.

            Almost everything follows a bell curve of one sort or another. Soem people have average luck, some peop  ehave good luck. That couldn't possibly hapen if some people weren't less lucky than average.

              Over the past few years I've come to this revelation of sorts. To me it is a positive revelation.

              Some may or may not have a hard time understanding this and when I first started posting here I stated things in an elusive way that had some really not understanding why I was posting the things I was posting. I much rather start off posting in extreme ways that get people's blood boiling so that when I make my point it makes more of an impact. Please understand this.

               

              A part of being positive is living in gratitude for what is done for you, for what you recieve in life.

              So many times people focus on what they do for others. Then wonder why they have bad luck or why they are the one who is always giving and not the ones recieving. The reason for this is because they are focusing on giving. Instead of this focus on what is done for you and feel that gratitude.

              I grew up in a fundementalist church (no longer associated with them) and I can remember people giving testimonies of what God had done for them. However some would always turn it around to show how they had did this or that thing for another and have God as a minor player in the equation. Basically doing a self glory thing then turning around and wondering why it was always up to them to give.  Because that is what they were focusing on.

              Some people may say that they like helping others. Just remember that in order for you to help another they have to have some sort of problem. I would much prefer a world where I didn't have to help anyone. Where everyone had their ideal level of abundance. However my way of doing this is to now focus my thoughts on the gifts that I recieve in life. If I do a good thing to forget about it and go on focusing on what is done for me instead of what I have done for others.

              Living your life in gratitude for what you are getting is more positive then trying to justify your life by what you have done for others. If you do things for others great..... but then just forget about the deed and move on to another if you choose.

              In regards to the lottery..... people want luck then feel gratitude for every little thing that happens to you.

              If you try to force a lottery win by saying that you will give to this person or that person or to this charity or that charity then you are not allowing things to be drawn to you. You are sending things to those people or charities. Which is fine if that is your intention. Just don't be upset when your brother-n-law wins the lottery instead of you lol.... and well charities get money everyday.... so focusing on a lottery win with dreams of giving to this or that charity serve no purpose other than to send recieving energies to those things instead of allowing it for yourself. If that is your intention fine. If you intention is to win the lottery then stop doing it.

              In regards to winning the lottery keep your dreams positive and stick to your immeadiate family in your focus, in your talk, in your writings. After you win then you can scatter the money as you so please. But for purposes of creating your own luck or manifesting. It does no good to scatter your focus.

              Remember you are not Atlas, If one person with either a few million dollars or a handfull of good intentions could slove all the problems of the world... Bono would have done it by now. lol

              Be positive, live in complete gratitude, and good luck :)

              BTW I have had minor windfalls (non lottery) and some very miraclous things happen using these principles.

              You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!
