I have a few tests these couple of weeks.. So do all of us who study with me at KBU.. Somehow i always wonder, every time when it is time for exam, we always hear an inspiration and motivational support in term of words, doesn't care whether its mentally or physically.. In brief we call it a wish.. But we always hear this phrase from our friends, "Good Luck!", aren't we? Well, i suppose we do hear those words..
In general view, i would say that we always interpret it as "I hope you do well in the test" or maybe "Go get some good results so that we can celebrate it later" (hahaha! I think so)..
What am i trying to focus is that, i totally disagree by saying "Good Luck!" to our friends.. Its some sort of gambling, trying our luck to get a good result.. The chance is like 50 / 50.. There's a saying that i think it goes like this (correct me if I'm wrong), "Success is 99% of effort and 1% luck".. After all the difficulties and sacrifices we made to focus in our study, we just get a Good-Luck!-wish from our friends.. As you can calculate it by yourself, luck is only 1%!! I repeat, 1%!!! So, how come we expect our friends to get a good result in their tests??
So, in my point of view, i would say "All the best!" rather than "Good Luck" because i do believe effort that we put in is priceless than take it by a luck or chance..
