Imagine yourself walking through a lonely street when suddenly you run into a magic lamp, out of which emerges a genie. ‘Your wish is my command,’ he utters and that is when your mind starts racing to all the amazing things you want in your life. You may think of asking for money, a huge mansion, lots of friends, or even a bright future.
However, those who are smart enough would ask for a healthy life as being healthy will automatically attract all the other things that one wants. As it is said, ‘health is wealth’. Hence, once attained, this health can get you all the power, money and friends that you desire.
