You Should Dream Of Winning The Lottery

You Should Dream Of Winning The LotteryDreaming of winning the Power Ball Lottery is not a bad thing. In fact, it can be a good thing. It can be healthy to dream of winning the lottery. You should dream a little.

What’s important to you? What do you want your life to look like? Dreaming of winning the lottery can help you find the answers.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I remember a guidance counselor in school asking a group of students what they would do with $1 million. The exercise is supposed to give you a glimpse into what type of occupation or profession you may want to consider. It is a glimpse into the psyche and what you may really love to do.

So, for example, if you said that you would have liked to use your fictional $1 million to help those less fortunate than yourself, then maybe you might want to consider going into a job in public service. You could be a policeman, fireman, or the like.

You Should Dream Of Winning The Lottery

Are you stuck in a job that you hate? The dream of spending lottery winnings could be a stark realization or even a wake-up call to go in another direction with your life.

What’s On Your Bucket List?

What’s important in your life? Do you value buying things or experiencing things? Dreaming of winning the lottery can help you find the answers.

I’m a big fan of having a bucket list. I have one of 100 goals before I die. It is a dream list of things to do and not necessarily items to buy.

Do you have a bucket list? What would you regret not doing if you died tomorrow? Dream of winning the lottery and how you would send the money. Then you will have a great insightful look into a few things that should be on your bucket list.

Do you need 100 goals on your bucket list? Of course you don’t. But, I think that bucket lists are a great tool.

What Does Your Retirement Look Like?

Have you ever thought about what your retirement might look like? What is your retirement dream? Are you like me and dream of owning your own business one day? Is that what you would do with lottery winnings?

The Power Ball Lottery jackpot ballooned to over $636 million. After taxes, the winner will receive a lump sum payment of almost $175 million. Experts think that with the lottery’s new rule changes, we may one day soon see a $1 billion jackpot.

These numbers are of course staggering. Dreaming of winning the lottery is a good thing. It is a glimpse into your mind, your dreams. There isn’t anything wrong with dreaming a little bit as long as it is taken in small doses. It is the obsessing over it that’s the unhealthy part.

When I play, I purchase just one ticket. I figure your odds are small regardless if you buy one or a hundred, so I figure one at least gets me in the game.
