Why do some people have such bad luck all the time?

My luck is horrible. Its not the worst but it seems that if anything can go wrong with me, it does :( Why do people have really bad luck?

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

Luck is just another term for nature and things happening naturally in a way that seems more negative than not for a period of time.

It could be that you are concentrating on the bad things that happen to you. It could be also, that you are not a good planner or you don't prepare well enough for your day, so you end up not dealing with stuff to well.

Wow, so I'm not the only one? It's amazing how different people can go through the exact same things. I honestly can't answer it "correctly", but just practice and be much more prepared and mobilized for just about everything and things will go much smoother for you. I mean, I've gotten better.

Most of the bad things that happened to me, I can trace back to my own mistakes. However a few were no fault of my own.

You have bad luck because it's all you think about. When you envy someone else's privileges or "good luck," he only see the bad in your life. Think positively and life will be better for you.

I have really bad luck too.It just happens though most of the time you can avoid it by doing something different before that.Though by the time you know it's to late.

If I depended on luck my family motto would be "Semper in excreta -- sumus solum profundum variat" which translates as "Always in the cack -- only the depth varies".

Fortunately most of us get to make our own luck, as the wise and ancient Hippy has pointed out.

If you allow yourself to be controlled by circumstances, rather than taking control of those circumstances and bending them to your will, you will continue to have "bad luck". It's self-created.

If you find that your life is constantly filled with turmoil. - then look at the choices that you are making - are you making wise choices in your life - are you able to discern a situation before it even gets started.

Remember King Solomon prayed for wisdom - he didn't pray for more riches or wealth but wisdom. The same for you - pray for a spirit of "discernment." I have notice when you safeguard what and who you allow to come into your life - your life has more sanity and stability. (Proverbs 3:13)

It is truly a blessing to discern any person, thing or circumstance before allowing yourself to get entwined in any situation or circle of people.

I have an older brother who has bad luck. It came to a point once that we did not even want to park in his driveway in fear that it may rub off. It was just a thought of precaution, nothing malicious just trying to be on the positive. that was many years ago. I still to this day be extra careful around him and know when its time to leave..

The choices we make is responsible for the resulting actions. It is no ones fault, no good or bad luck, not our parents fault, or any other human on the planet. We are responsible for everything that happens to us.
Now is the time, today is the day to accept Jesus FREE gift of salvation. It is this simple:
Heavenly Father I know I am a sinner, please come into my heart and cleanse me, and make me your child that I will live with you forever. Amen.

Luck is the residue of preparation and effort. Put forth the latter, and you may see more of the former.

Unlucky people are generally more tense than lucky people, and this anxiety disrupts their ability to notice the unexpected.

Luck is what you have left over after you give 100 percent...
