ABSTRACT
This essay discusses how luck can change the fate of a person. According to the author luck is somewhat connected with fate. He added that whatever happened luck is still a person's own doing. The true prerequisite of a lucky person is not idleness or curiosity but rather an interpretation. Therefore, like everything in the world, luck is a construction.
