People try to change the chance outcomes, and thereby their luck by using blind superstition or old ritual to affect the outcome, but there is no evidence of them working.
Luck can be increased with hard work, though what can happen out there is still anybody’s guess. The prepared mind that is able to act with speed and direction has more favourable chances than the one who is not paying attention.

Like the flip of a coin coming up with heads or tails, chance is what happens out there, and is an aspect of the physical universe. Luck, on the other hand, is a perceived value of the ‘chance’ outcome.
It is our subjective reality of a good or bad fortune, imposed over the objective reality of the final result or consequence. The chance event is the same, and people see it as lucky or unlucky.
Being lucky or unlucky often is our own perception and outlook towards life.
If we survive a car accident, we consider ourselves lucky to be alive or to be unlucky to be involved in the accident in the first place, ruining our vehicle.
If the result is binary, like a flip of a coin or the stock market going up or down, we can work towards both the possibilities, and get into the playing field where we are in control of both the outcomes.
Many lotteries play to the basic psychological error of the brain which correlates a near miss with better luck.
They allow players to choose a combination of four or five numbers and players experience an illusion that they almost won. In reality, the odds of winning keep getting worse with each successive number batch.
