What does it mean to have a 'magnetic personality'? Most people equate this with charisma or having a special knack for drawing others to them. But this phrase can actually be used to describe everyone, because a person's thoughts draw not only people, but situations and material things, too. Unfortunately, thoughts don't always attract the good people, places, and things most people want-but everyone has the ability to change that. In The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Law of Attraction, readers learn exactly how to be their own best friend-and avoid being their own worst enemy. The secret lies in translating thoughts into positive energy that can transform life. And although that might sound like vague, mystical hocus-pocus, every person can take real, concrete actions to get the results they want in every aspect of life.
