Life Editor’s Picks: Lucky Books

I wouldn’t say I’m a lucky person, but I’ve found that the more positive thoughts I have, the more positive opportunities I see.

The law of attraction plays a big part in my life, and perhaps you’ve noticed that what you see is what you get in your life. If you’re constantly looking for bad news and things to be disappointed about, then that’s all you’ll expereince.

Instead, I recommend my clients look on the bright side and use their minds, thoughts, and feelings to seek out positivity. A little optimism can do wonders to improve your mood, and thereby improve your situation.
