Did you ever wish you could just sit by Mom's feet again and absorb her wisdom? Remember all those things that Mom said would help you succeed, and those things that might get in your way? Well, we remember some of them, but not all.
Create Your Own Luck feels like Mom-or a good friend-giving you lots of perspectives, advice, and cautions. Azriela Jaffe is like a mom-or a good friend-to thousands of people. She's a wife and mother of three children, a nationally syndicated columnist, and coordinator of a wide network of entrepreneurial couples.
We've all caught ourselves observing someone's good fortune and exclaiming that the fortunate person is so lucky. Jaffe asserts that creating luck is a skill that we can learn. It's an attitude toward life that we can master and, yes, control our own lives. In this book, she shows us how in a conversational tone that's captivating.
The text is interwoven with stories told in the first person. The reading is so comfortable that I was drawn in to a sense of being one-on-one with the author . . . probably curled up in front of the fireplace. One after another, Jaffe shares Luck Builders, the behaviors that attract good luck. Interspersed with these words of encouragement are Luck Busters, warnings about the behaviors that sabotage the good luck you attract, and Luck Blockers, behaviors that repel good luck. Throughout the book are Luck Journal Exercises, suggestions to do things that will help keep your thinking where it needs to be. The book is well-seasoned with thought-provoking quotes.

a short review: I recieved this book by complete chance and coincidence... I've only had it for ten days now. At first I was merely skeptical. I said to myself "oh great, another somebody trying to explain the principles pf the universe."
But that wasn't the case... This book is about gentelness. It does not preach you to do anything or that you're doing anything wrong..... It merely reminds you, in the most gentle of ways, that you either ALLOW good-Luck to flow into your life, or you don't... I was a little bit STUNNED because this book is SO FULL OF TRUTHS that it made me see how many LUCK-BUSTERS and LUCK BLOCKERS I have had in my life... and guess who has created them?--Moi!!...... This is not an easy thing to recognize. It makes you upset and angry with yourself for a while (because deep down in your heart you know this is TRUTH!), but once you LET GO of this anger, you begin to ALLOW good things to be entering your life...... and INDEED, in the past WEEK (since I started reading this book) I've experienced more love and happiness than I have for a LONG LONG TIME :-)
This is not because of the book. This is not some MAGICAL BOOK. This book, however, does what only the BEST BOOKS CAN DO... It reminds you of Universal truths that YOU ALREADY KNOW... It does so in a FUN and GENTLE way.... This book was clearly written in the SPIRIT OF LOVE.... It gets my HIGHEST RECCOMENDATION. Anyone, like me, who is on a spiritual path, anyone who is with an OPEN MIND(Principle # 1 of LUCK-CREATION according to the book)... Anyone who likes to be reminded of gentle yet POWERFUL universal truths should read this book!

Do you believe that good luck is something that "just happens?" Do you ever wonder why good things happen again and again to some people, while others seem to have black clouds over their heads? In this book, Azriela Jaffe identifies eight strategies for attracting good luck. Each strategy comes with Luck Builders, Luck Busters, and Luck Blockers--specific behaviors that can bring luck to you or chase it away. With these strategies, you can start making lucky breaks come your way.
Although we can't control everything in our lives, we can open the door to new opportunities and give luck easy entry into our lives. Simply changing your mindset and being open to new possibilities can make luck happen in amazing ways for you. That's the point of a story involving me that is included in "Create Your Own Luck." I won't give all the details here, but on page 106 you can read about how I was able to salvage a problem situation and turn it into an exciting opportunity.
Being included in this book is in itself an example of one of the ways I've created luck in my life. When my problem occurred, and I made lemonade from the lemons, I posted the story to an email discussion group. Azriela saved that post and asked for my permission to include it in her book. If I hadn't taken the time to share my story, I wouldn't have been "lucky" enough to have my story shared with the world through this book. Just making yourself available can make you lucky!
I've always been a big believer in creating your own luck, and I had employed some of the strategies here intuitively. The good advice in this book showed me how to consciously and consistently use luck-creating strategies to create success after success. If you read this book and put its ideas to work for you, you will begin attracting good fortune in all areas of your life.
