Once there was a old man living in a village. He had a beautiful horse. He loved his horse so much because it was the only way to earn his living.
Oneday when he woke up he saw that his horse was not there. Horse ran from house and found a place to live somewhere in the jungle. The other villagers came to the old man for Condolence on his loss.
Villagers: Hey Old man! We heard your horse left you to live somewhere else. we are so sorry to hear about your horse. You are so unlucky.
Old man: (after taking a deep breath) hmmm maybe. Maybe its my bad luck. Who knows.
The old man remained calm. After a couple of weeks, his horse came back. But he was not alone. He brought 3 other beautiful wild horses with him.
When villagers heard about the news. They came to old man for congratulating him.
Villagers: We heard that your horse came back and brought 3 other horses. You have 4 horses now. You are so lucky.
Old man: hmm maybe. Maybe its my good luck. Who knows.
Old man had a son. He work with his father. Oneday he went to train other three wild horses. He rode one of the wild horses. But the horse he rode was skittish and he fell from the horse. One of his leg got broken. He became handicap. When villagers heard about this news, they came to the old man.
Villagers: We heard that your only son got broken his leg. We are so sorry to hear that. That's your only son. How unlucky you are.

After some days, the country they live in broke out war with another country. The war was on its peak and their army needed more men to join. Government started enrolling common citizens into army forcefully. They came to old man's village and forcefully carried every young man to the war. When they came to the old man's home, they left his son after seeing him with crutches. When villagers heard about this they came to the old man.
Villagers: We heard that they didn't pick your son as he is disabled. That's mean your sin don't have to go to war. How lucky you are.

This is a famous story. Maybe you heard it somewhere else before. But what lesson did you get from it?
Whenever we face a loss we quickly pick the negative thoughts. We call that loss our bad luck. We only see what is infront of us. We can't see the full picture.
Whenever we face a loss, we don't learn from it. We just call it our bad luck. Who knows that this loss can bring a good luck or bad luck.
The best thing we can do is to wait and pray. Maybe this little loss bring us a great good luck. Who knows.
I clearly remember an incident happened 7 years ago. My sister and her husband had to travel from one city to other by air. Somehow they missed their flight. They were so angry and depressed because it was so important for them to reach there on time. They booked another flight which was going to fly in the evening. They came back for a rest. After a couple of hours we got a news of crash of same airplane which was missed by my sister. All the passenger with the cabin crew were died in that mid air crash.
My sister and her husband who were unlucky a couple of hours before, now were the luckiest persons in the world.
We all feel unlucky some times. I faced this situation many times. Specially in crypto world I missed many opportunities. For example: I bought $100 of AXS when it was almost $3 and I sold it at about $7 gaining more than 100%. I sold it because I thought it would go down now. But what it got ? It gone almost $83. Which is almost 28X in less than two months. I have seen it growing almost everyday but I didn't want to buy in fomo.
Another example: I had 4 $ETC when it was about $12. And I sold it when it touched $15. Guess what ? It gone all the way to $179 in just one and a half months after I sold. I was a bad hodler.
Not only this but I have so many unlucky moments in real world too. But we to wait and watch after every unlucky moment. We should not react immediately.
Anyways, what's your thoughts on this? Did you have any unlucky moments? Share with me in the comments section.
