Luck or lack?


Check out this view on luck n lack.

“Closely related to the word lucky are “lacky-isms” such as shortfall, lack, worry/worried, I

fear, or if only I could. All these words or phrases signal a sense of defeat, typical speak for an

anxious “follower.” Talk long enough about what you lack, and soon the only people who will

hang out with you are “lackys.” Dr. Peale urged his readers to specifically eliminate fretting

from their discussions when he wrote, “Snip off the little worries and expressions of worry” like

little branches atop a tall tree. If you are truly worried, sharing your concerns with others is like

sharing a cold to help yourself feel better. You don’t feel better; you just make someone else feel

worse.” (Sanders)
