Overview

Luck is not chance—it can be cultivated. This engaging guide shows how to attract “chance” opportunities, and avoid “bad luck,” in ways that will dramatically improve your life.
 
Why do some people seem to have all the luck? According to writer and economist A. H.  Z. Carr, there’s much more to luck than just the random caprices of fate—“luck” is an accessible mind-set that anyone can achieve.

The difference between “chance” and “luck,” says Carr, lies in our mental attitude. Carr teaches readers how to develop their character and adjust their mind-set to pick out the opportunities for happiness and success that are available to us all, but which most unthinkingly pass by.

This is no volume of superstition—this is a real guide for people who want to tap into the opportunities for a better life that surround us.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"A welcome addition to the field of attraction/prosperity. The book is full of practical strategies for changing luck-repelling behaviors and increasing both fortunate circumstances and the ability to make the most of them. If your customers are serious about removing barriers to their success and happiness, this is a book of practical suggestions that they won’t want to miss."
—RETAILING INSIGHT

"A diplomat, journalist, and economist, Carr was the furthest thing that one could imagine from a starry-eyed spiritual dreamer or a promulgator of superstition. Carr eschewed all forms of ponderous or magical language — yet he also believed in a clear and concrete set of methods for attracting and building upon the fortuitous chance occurrences that crisscross our daily lives. He was an ardent believer that good ethics bring “good luck.” "
