Some time ago at a party, I met a guy, Alberto, who developed a habit of winning the lottery jackpots. First he won $816,000, then about six months later he won $2.2 million, then a year later he won another $6.1 million – all playing lottery. When I met him, he already traveled twice around the globe and was packing bags for his third adventure around the world. Alberto used to work as a street car driver, without much hope of experiencing financial freedom through his employment. Now, he is free, loaded with cash and he enjoys all the extra attention he gets. Alberto was always a friendly and a caring kind of guy, helping people around him and this extra money gave him the opportunity to get more out of life and be able to do more for people he loves and cares for.
With his knack for foreign languages he is having a blast traveling around the world, exploring and sharing in the richness of life, the abundance of natural beauties, the wealth that different countries and cultures have to offer. Perhaps like Alberto used to be, you are in a dead-end job and the way you see it, the only way out is through winning the lottery. Perhaps you are doing the best you can to improve your life and you are already managing your finances well, saving and investing money, but you know that winning the lottery could help you to get the things that only money can buy – maybe you like to spend more quality time with your family, or get some expensive toys, get out of debt, have more time to learn new things and better the overall quality of your life, or simply live it up and indulge in sweet luxuries and give to your family Satta King, friends and all the people you love more than you were able to give before.
Maybe you’ve never played the lottery before and maybe you’ve been playing it for a while, but have never won anything. And maybe you would like to know what exactly did Alberto do to win a lottery jackpot, not once, not twice, but three times already. Some people will tell you that you gotta be lucky to win. My friend, Vittorio, who won $45,000 playing Lotto 6/49 believes that you gotta be lucky to win and that lottery is the only way out. Vittorio often wins several hundred dollars on instant lottery tickets and he often finds $50, $100 or even few hundred dollars on the street – money that some unlucky person dropped and left, long before Vittorio came along. Vittorio uses NO system for winning the lottery. He knows nothing about the law of attraction or about using his mind power intentionally – he has merely conditioned his mind through winning, through finding money and through expecting to find money or win it. Vittorio is a gambler at heart. Alberto played more sensibly – yes, he believed to be lucky, he expected to win, and he did all he could to maximize his chances of winning. You, too, can maximize your chances of winning by covering as many possibilities as you can. You can decide how you want to play and how much money would make a difference in your life.
Like many other people who eventually mastered the art and science of winning, I used to play games of chance and I won nothing UNTIL I changed my mind about winning – instead of just hoping to win, I decided to win – and so can you. I didn’t just rely on luck – I chose to create my luck, and so can you. When I learned the secret and kept on applying it, I kept on winning, and so can you. And by the way “the secret” was never secret, nor was it hidden – it’s just that most people didn’t care to look for it. In one of his books, Joseph Murphy tells of a man who lost all the money he had – about $250,000 gambling in Las Vegas. He didn’t even have enough money to go back home. He had to phone his family to wire him the money so that he could buy a ticket and return home. The man was desperate and he asked Joseph Murphy what to do. Joseph Murphy gave him few suggestions, which this man dutifully kept on applying every day for six months. Remember that the secret of success is in applying yourself UNTIL you achieve your goal – whatever time it takes – where few days, few weeks, few months or years. After six months of daily application of mental suggestion, the man had a dream and in a dream he dreamt that he was in a Las Vegas casino, playing at a blackjack table, where he won over $250,000.
It just happened that there are no coincidences and that the man’s company transferred him to Las Vegas. He went to the casino from his dream and there in the casino was a table and a dealer from his dream and he won over $250,000. On his Personal Power CDs, Tony Robbins tells a story about a couple who were present at his Goal-Setting workshop. During the goal-setting workshop he mentioned a woman who absolutely needed to get $100,000 for her business venture, within a couple of months. The woman never made more than $30,000 a year and he thought that perhaps her goal was a bit unrealistic, but decided that it’s not his place to stand in her way. The woman appeared few months later on his next Goal-Setting workshop and said how she won those $100,000 playing the lottery, just before the deadline she has set for herself. This time she set a goal to get $200,000. It wasn’t that urgent, so she gave herself a deadline of six months. And just near the end of her deadline, she again won the lottery – and she won exactly $200,000 that she needed. A couple that were present at that workshop wondered why did she settle for so little, why not go for $1,000,000 (it’s only a matter of zeroes). They decided to put into practice what they have learned. They embraced their inner power and the vision of themselves as lottery jackpot winners. They drove everyone around the mb crazy. They didn’t win the first time they played, or the second, but the third time they hit it big and they won over $1,000,000.
You too can strike it rich using the power of your mind, and to play it safe, it would be wise to first practice developing your ability to win and play for fun, until you develop the ability to pick winning numbers consistently, before you play with real money. Winning the lottery should never be your primary financial strategy, but rather something you explore with your spare money.
