This is a story I've heard many times. It is a good reminder of how to be judge-free of life's events. A young farmer and his wife gave birth to a son in a small village. The villagers around him proclaimed, "What good luck! You have a son to help you in the fields." The farmer replied, "It could be good or it could be bad." About 15 years later, one of his horses ran away. The villagers shared their sympathy, "Oh, what bad luck! Your horse ran away, now you do not have a strong horse to help you with your work on the farm." The farmer replied, "It could be good or it could be bad." The farmer went on and managed without his horse until one day the horse returned with five other wild horses. "What good luck! Now you have six horses!" the villagers exclaimed. The farmer again gave his reply, "It could be good or it could be bad." The farmer's son broke his leg as he helped to tame the wild horses.

Luck is a probability. If it happens the way you like, you call it Good Luck, if not, Hard Luck. Destiny is certain, whether you like it or not , a destination is to be reached by everything. So Death is the destiny of each living one. When our actions are in tune with the Law of Probability, the results are generally favourable, and you call it Good Luck. But as I said "Probability", despite all the efforts one might make, the outcome may not be desired one, so it gets the label of "Bad Luck".

Luck happens only when opportunity meets the goal in a particular time, but destiny happens to all at any time.

Inspite of commitment and hard work, sometimes, we do not get what we want. This shows that luck and destiny play an important role in our life. We should pray to God to give us luck in our life.

If you wait for your destiny , fate , luck , you are never sure of your dinner today.There is nothing called good luck or bad luck . We are the master of our own luck , fate or destiny . We are here today because we decided to be here yesterday. Luck is " Lacking Ur Common Knowledge " that LUCK favors those who chase for the dreams and not go back to sleep and dream again , for luck to lick their feet

Luck or destiny plays a very important role in our life.Everything ( major events) are predestined.However we write our own destiny by our deeds.
