At the time of this writing, the Mega Millions Jackpot has reached a record $1.6 Billion and the Powerball is over $600 Million. If you are a business owner you should be getting your tickets now!
Ok, I realize that in the grand scheme of things the lottery is a poor investment. You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning twice before you’d ever guess all six numbers correctly. Yet there is a lesson to be learned here.
By now you have probably at least seen or heard one story about all the hype. Most often the same question is asked, “What would you do with the money if you won?” Ponder that for a moment. What would you do if the financial barriers to your lifestyle were gone? Would you act differently? How would your business change if you couldn’t fail? What could you become?
Playing the lottery frees us to think of what’s possible. We are able to live fearlessly when we eliminate the restrictions money places on us. Our dreams are bigger and our actions are bolder. The point of buying a ticket is not about you winning. It is about you seeking out what is possible. Once you discover what you want to have, do, or be the next step is making it happen. In the off chance you don’t win, the dream is still there. Apply your bold Vision. Figure out how you CAN accomplish your desired outcome. If a remote chance of instant wealth can make you think bigger, imagine what power you would have if you figured out how to create it anyway. It may be the best two dollars you ever spent. Good luck!
