Capturing the power of “the law of attraction” to achieve everything

Twelve-year old Bryan Issac Yards is facing numerous challenges in his life including dealing with the recent separation of his parents, moving to a new apartment building, managing a negative friendship, and overcoming fears related to making a public speech and getting ready for a big test. Through it all, he uses little secrets and techniques to successfully navigate life’s daily concerns, including visualization, the law of attraction and positive thinking.

The story is framed against the backdrop of a roller hockey league and Bryan’s ability to attract a girl goalie onto his team. Despite injuries and distractions, can the Blue Bombers turn their season around and redeem last year’s loss in the finals? More importantly, can Bryan’s Mom and Dad repair their relationship? His best friend Brooksie, a Boston Terrier, is with him every step of the way.

You can accomplish anything you want if you maintain a positive attitude. But it is more than that. It is 100% believing that you can achieve your goals, and visualizing them into reality.
