This self-help book aims to show people how they can change their lives for the better and achieve success in all aspects of their lives. This is the Tamil edition of the bestselling book. According to the author, the power of thoughts can shape lives. If people have positive attitude and express gratitude for things they already have and visualize their desires, it opens up opportunities for those desires to become reality. The author believes that the whole universe is governed by the law of attraction. The power of this law can help fulfil a person s desire, if they tune into the right frequency through their thoughts. Thus, positive thoughts attract positive results. Thoughts, both negative and positive, have the power to influence events. For instance, anger invites experiences that cause a person to feel aggressive. Positive feelings attract positive events. Carrying this further through visualization can help people actually get whatever they want, according to the author. She places special emphasis on gratitude and visualization. The feeling of gratitude gives off a positive frequency that attracts good things. Visualization helps translate that power into objects that we desire.
