Buddhist philosophy claims that karma is the underlining driving force, which governs our fate. The good the bad and the odd all happen for a reason. When things get tough or stressful, this principal can really help banish all clouds and reveal the old happy soul. If something bad happens, then the key is to get out of that situation, rather than staying in, sinking and just lamenting.
Luck, a peculiar thing, it is abstract, possibly only a concept. Yet studies have shown that positive attitude and optimism really contribute to “luck” or in general the sense of being lucky and having positive things happen. The person becomes a magnet of positiveness when she believes that she’s incredibly lucky.
