I have been pursuing a certain goal for years, and I was telling a friend of mine that I’m close to realizing that dream. He then said to me, “Good luck”. I told him that luck has nothing to do with it. I went on to explain to him that there aren’t unseen forces that control “luck”, and the cliché is meaningless. I then demanded for him not to make any more comments on my aspiration, because I’m afraid that he might jinx it.
