I'm not going to disagree that you make a lot of your own luck by being vigilant, second guessing idiots etc. There are always those fluke incidents though that you simply could never have foreseen. When it happens, how you come out the other side is equally foretold by the quarters of the moon as much as two dolosse and a cowtail switch. Call it what you want, you can't prepare for those. You know what I'm saying and can't argue against it in honesty.Luck is as realistic a concept as destiny and spooks.
But risk mitigation is exactly that, lowering your risk increases your "luck".
The higher your risk probability (the more chances you take) the less "luck" you have.
In general, the only time you need to have "luck" is if you were taking chances...and taking chances is a high-risk activity.
Luck is a construct of your own actions.
