Are You Lucky? Yes, You Are!

 

Yesterday, I was feeling low, everyone at some point feels the same. It might be something we are stuck in for now like work, investment problems, jobs, coding, designing but to every problem, there is a solution, it might come late but it will, with true belief and self-confidence. I felt I am one of the lucky person in this world and you might be the one too. How?
