The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for October 15, 2017


             I have had many people ask me questions about playing the Lottery during the last ten years or so.  It seems just when it looks like people playing the Lottery is waning there comes a renewed interest and with it more questions.  Why do some people win and others don't?  Why are some people multiple winners?  Why does winning the Lottery ruin so many people's lives?  And the questions have no answers that we can say is the absolute truth.  Those who understand consciousness are perplexed.  There doesn't seem to be any particular thread of thought or belief expressed by any of the Lottery winners that would point to consciousness.  There have been winners who had a detailed plan on what they would do with the money.  Is this a guarantee of winning?  Not necessarily.  One would think that psychics would have a good shot at winning the Lottery, but as Jay Leno quipped:  "Here's something to think about:  How come you never see a headline like 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

The one thing I am sure of after reading a multitude of stories about Lottery winners is that if you are going to play, you should have a definite plan for what you are going to do with the money and be persistent in following the plan.  Those who have failed to find happiness after winning the Lottery all failed to have a definite plan.  Most, if not all, who had a definite plan learned to enjoy the freedom and happiness that their wealth helped them to experience.  Money doesn't buy happiness.  This we all know.  But, it does give us a greater experience of freedom.  The billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks among other things, Mark Cuban, offered these tips to Lottery winners:  "If you weren't happy yesterday, you won't be happy tomorrow. It's money. It's not happiness. ... If you were happy yesterday, you are going to be a lot happier tomorrow. It's money. Life gets easier when you don't have to worry about the bills. ... Tell all your friends and relatives no. They will ask. Tell them no. If you are close to them, you already know who needs help and what they need. Feel free to help SOME, but talk to your accountant before you do anything and remember this, no one needs $1 million for anything. No one needs $100,000 for anything. Anyone who asks is not your friend. ... You don't become a smart investor when you win the lottery. Don't make investments. You can put it in the bank and live comfortably. Forever. You will sleep a lot better knowing you won't lose money." And one last tip: "Be nice. No one likes a mean billionaire. :)" 

              There is great benefit in writing our thoughts out on paper as it creates automatically a greater impress on the subconscious mind which automatically works to that which we genuinely desire.  Write out what you want to have.  Write out what you want to do.  Write out what you want to be.  And if you are someone who enjoys playing the Lottery, THINK BIG ... and write out how you would expand on those things you have previously written.  And, who knows?  You may become a Lottery winner.  After all, somebody is going to win and that is for certain. 

              And, whatever you do, don't lose your sense of humor: 
“I’m a pretty hairy guy, but have bald spots from people rubbing me for luck.” Maryland Lottery winner Donald Cole III  

And so it is!
