Are some people really luckier than others? Science gives a surprising answer to this

According to Einstein, random luck is not typical of the universe.

There is a common belief that some people are more fortunate than others. If a person is richer, healthier, and more satisfied with his life, his environment and acquaintances tend to assume that he was lucky.

Two famous Americans, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, said that the secret of luck and success is diligence, that is, the harder a person works, the higher the chance of one day getting the big prize.

If that wasn’t enough, we recommend philosophy professor Stephen Hills realize in 2018 we’re just as lucky as we think.

After all, there are two sides to everything: When a friend of ours recovers from the coronavirus, we (if we’re optimistic) consider him lucky. Not so unlucky that he fell ill – pessimists believe.

Thus, luck is mostly a matter of perspective and judgment, which is why it is always worth looking at the bright side of things. Einstein also said that “God is not a dice player,” meaning that chance (if you like: luck) does not play a role in the universe. Isn’t all this more reassuring?
