Does bad luck really come in threes?
People have problems. OK, not the most most amazing opening sentence you’ve ever read. But, when people have problems they often complain that several bad things always happen all at once.
As human beings we are wired to recognise patterns in random data even when there aren’t any. “Bad luck” can often cause a sensitivity to more “bad luck” which will be recognised when otherwise would be ignored.
Be careful you don’t end up in a vicious circle! Even if it seems as though the whole universe is conspiring against you, don’t think it! Your suspicions will turn into convictions and become self-fulfilling prophecies.
So, bad luck doesn’t come in threes. It’s just our imagination. That’s it, isn’t it?
My point is bad luck can come in threes, fours, fives sixes. It doesn’t matter. We can handle more bad luck during those challenging moments.
So, smile through the bad times. It may be that they’re insuring that you’ll have even better luck afterwards.
