One moment, a person can stumble upon a winning lottery ticket, strike a lucrative business deal, or inherit a fortune, catapulting them to unimaginable wealth. Conversely, a single unfortunate event, such as a stock market crash, a natural disaster, or a debilitating illness, can quickly wipe out a person’s savings, leaving them destitute. The uncertainty of chance events serves as a reminder that financial success is not solely determined by hard work and perseverance, but also by luck and timing.
