Within your world of influence, you have what we call Karma. Others can call it different things: chance, destiny, getting what you deserve.
Whatever you believe or don't, it's hard to deny that there are events in each of our lives that seem to be attracted to us in a pattern. This world of influence we each live in can be understood or, at least, defined better when we slow down and pay attention.
When we are positive, more positive things happen. When we are negative, more negative things happen. Neither means there will be none of the other; however, our approach can help to minimize or enhance these things.
