Men’s ring Fortunae Filius
About the item
Fortunae Filius is a Latin phrase meaning “A spoiled child of Fortune”. The ring was created as a reminder of luck as one of the most powerful and untamed agents of our reality.
In recent years, a number of studies have suggested that luck and opportunity may play a far greater role than we ever realized, across a number of fields, including financial trading, business, sports, art, music, literature, and science. Their argument is not that luck is everything; of course talent matters. Instead, the data suggests that we miss out on a really importance piece of the success picture if we only focus on personal characteristics in attempting to understand the determinants of success.
It’s not difficult to see why many people take offense when reminded of their luck, especially those who have received the most. Allowing for luck can dent our self-conception. It can diminish our sense of control.
