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.

Editorial Reviews

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.” "

How To Attract Good Luck And Make The Most Of It In Your Daily Life 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Joyachiever More than 1 year ago
I preface this book review by admitting that I already consider myself a woman naturally blessed with good luck. However, I still purchase books pertaining to good luck due to my spiritual thirst to increase knowledge around making the best of life. Additionally, I admit to doing some off the wall and/or unconventional things to improve my life. For instance, less than 8 weeks ago, I decided to let go of reading my own horoscopes as a subconscious way to reinforce the idea that I’m in charge of my destiny and that things are only getting better in my life. However, I allow myself to look at other horoscopes as ideas for my goal setting, spiritual aspirations, life advice ideas etc. I purchased and use the ideas in How To Attract Good Luck And Make The Most Of It In Your Daily Life by A.H.Z. Carr with a similar mindset, concepts and insights for enriching my life and adding to my knowledge/wisdom goals. Generosity and Luck (starts on page 49), Turning points (starts on page 77), the intuitive approach to luck (starts on page 185), and how increased energy produces luck (starts on page 215) are some of the subject arena covered in the How To Attract Luck book. The back part of the book jacket lists A.H.Z. Carr as having lived from 1902-1971. Additionally, Carr is listed to have been a consulting economist for several corporations during his lifetime, a consultant to the Truman presidency, an economic adviser to the Roosevelt adviser, and is credited for writings in Harper’s, The Saturday Evening Post, and Reader’s Digest.
