The Luck Habit

Book Description

There are two kinds of ‘luck’ – the ‘luck’ that happens when things are completely outside your control and the ‘luck’ that happens as a result of spotting opportunities and your own positive actions.  However, it’s always you and the way you think and act that determines how ‘lucky’ you are.
