Concept of Luck vs. work

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Yeah agreed, hard work and a cautious respectful attitude towards anyone will bring more luck to you than mere coincidence will.

Dude in the airport bumps into me from behind, doesn't give a shit, bad luck to him.

When we applied for job, a friend of mine fell exam many times even she was a good student and tried hard. Some people said corruption behind it, but I passed the exam without any money under the table. Believe in luck or not? There is no luck without your effort.
