Nope. Superstitions hold you back and stop you from doing things you might otherwise want to do.

One of my family members is very superstitious, and believes that, among other things, peacock feathers and pearls are bad luck and that if someone gives you something sharp (a knife or scissors for example) as a present you must always give them a coin. The latter has become a family tradition, so I kind of like it even though it makes no sense.
Nope, not superstitious at all, I own a black cat just like the one in the photograph too!
I used to be superstitious when I was younger, simply because it was fanciful and magical. But experience of nothing bad/good happening after breaking a mirror or picking up a penny, has taught me otherwise. Although I no longer believe in superstitions, I still have a tendency to walk around ladders instead of under them, and I don't open an umbrella indoors. Old habits die hard.
Walking around ladders and not opening umbrellas indoors are as much about safety as superstition.
Not superstitious at all! I can't even think of a superstition at the top of my head besides Friday the 13th.
Yes - I know it's irrational but why tempt fate....
Not really. We create our own luck.
I am with Justine. We make our own luck. There is no point in being superstitious and having baseless prejudices.
It would appear that we can create our own outcomes based on what we believe.
This would make it important that we are not superstitious in the negative because what we conceive and believe we can achieve.
This is what the people who fake predictions in peoples lives use when they charge money for service.
I am not to staying that genuine people with Gods gift do not exist just that it is how the dangerous cons work.
It is always best to make a good plan, test it , believe in it and then work the plan with all your heart. This will bring you the luck you deserve.
I believe luck is a matter of attitude. Was it bad luck you kicked your toe, or good luck it wasn't broken?
I am not superstitious but as my husband was killed in a road accident on a Friday, I have always felt Fridays are more dangerous on the roads.
We have friends who believe that things must be done on certain days and not others or the gods will be displeased.
Some superstitions may have a basis of good sense- It may be unlucky to walk under a ladder as something may fall on you. If you win at tennis and have a particular pair of socks on, that you decide are your "lucky socks" , you may continue to win at tennis when you wear them because you play with more confidence.
