So last night someone won $445,000,000 and it wasn’t me.
I take it as a failure.
From all failures one can learn, so I look at it as an opportunity to learn.
What did I learn? I’ll outline that for you in this post.
Not To Worry About When It’s Going To Happen
When I see the jackpot at such a high number I get all excited and think that this is it. I tell myself every time I play that this is the time, tonight is the night. I think that’s worrying about when it’s going to happen. I’ve always read, in book after book, that you shouldn’t worry about when it’s going to happen. Instead you should focus on the end result at all times, for me that being living a life of wealth and abundance. In the future, I’m not going to worry about when it’s going to happen and instead just keep visualizing and knowing it’s going to happen and let the Universe take care of the details.
Not To Worry About How It’s Going To Happen
This fits nicely in with not worrying about when it’s going to happen. The lottery could give me a life of wealth and abundance, but it’s not the only way it could happen. Instead of worrying about winning the lottery to achieve my dreams, I’m going to open up the avenues of expression to include my wealth and abundance coming from anything I’m doing. Granted, one must be doing something (or taking massive action) to get somewhere (wealth and abundance), but that almost goes without saying. The way I figure it is my wealth and abundance could just as easily come from working on this blog as it could from winning the lottery. Only time will tell which avenue of expression the Universe uses to deliver to me my dreams and goals, but I rest in knowing that it’s going to happen, and I take massive action in all areas of my life to ensure that I’m doing all I can in order to help the Universe deliver to me what I want.
Not Winning Makes Me Hungrier For Success
I’ve read that in order to win you’ve got to be hungry. Not winning that massive jackpot makes me very, very hungry. I’m that much hungrier. That hunger I can use to fuel massive action to take my life to the next level. I was visualizing today after my failure and I set the bar lower. Now instead of wealth and abundance on the scale of multi millions I’m visualizing to just save $1,000. I need $700 more to reach that goal. That’s something I can do just by working my jobs. It’s going to take a little time, but it’s going to be an easy goal to reach. I’ve read that in order to train gunman, the trainer would set the target a yard out and they would shoot the bullseye. Each time they would move the target out another yard and the shooter would keep shooting bullseyes. In this way one can build confidence that they can reach their goals, by setting the target close and slowly moving it further out until the desired goal is met.
I’m as hungry as I have ever been, and it’s only going to fuel massive action in the direction of my dreams. I’m setting the target close, and by hitting the bullseye I’m going to build confidence that I can reach bigger goals. And yard by yard I’m going to set the target out a little farther until I’m hitting the bullseye for millions and millions of dollars.
The Pain Of Failing On A Massive Scale Gives Me Something Good To Write About
Pain can lead to great writing. Just take the story of Jesus Christ. He was crucified and died, all for God’s love of humanity, and people made an epic book about it. You may have heard of the New Testament?
To me, the pain of knowing I’m going to win a massive jackpot, finding out it’s been won and that it wasn’t me, is a little annoying. I always think I’m going to win big and then I don’t and it annoys me or at worst causes depression. I however am not going to let this failure (or any failure) get me down. I’m on the up and up in most all ways and I’m not going to be stopped by one massive failure (or by many). I’m going to keep taking massive action and I’m going to live the life beyond my wildest dreams.
It’s a lesson learned when one feels so good about something, so excited, and then it doesn’t work out. At that point I say it’s either time to move onto something else, or to keep trying until you’re a success. Or do two things at once (as I am with writing and playing to win big). When I don’t win I just think to myself that I’m going to get to studying more and writing more, and I’m going to buy this next ticket and eventually, one day, I’m going to get my massive winner.
Failure can be learned from. One can also write about what’s been learned as a service to others. I know there are many many people out there that want to win big playing the lottery, so maybe this post can shed some light on losing. I certainly am trying.
Never Give Up
I’ve read that when playing the lottery you should stick to a budget, so I do. I only buy one ticket at a time. When the Universe chooses someone to win the jackpot (after they’ve set their intention) it only takes one ticket to win. There’s no reason to ever quit. I’m not really losing anything. I can afford to throw away eight dollars a week when it means that one day I’ll be a multi millionaire. The gains I’m going to receive will immeasurably outweigh the losses, so the way I figure it is when you want to win big, you’ve got to put your money down.
I’m not really losing any money, I have the potential to win big, and I’ve been at it for this long, so there’s no sense in stopping now. A lot of winners don’t hit it big until they’re advanced in years and I figure that’s just how long it takes for some people to get their minds’ right. Personally, I’m visualizing everyday for about an hour, with presence of mind and clarity, so I figure that there’s the possibility I won’t have to wait that long. I say that everything comes at the perfect time, under Grace, so I can relax and just work, knowing that what I want is going to come to me at the perfect time for me, my family, my friends, and the charities I support. Besides, when one wins that big jackpot (or gets wealth and abundance in any way) I would think that for them, they would have waited 10 times longer, and that it was well worth the wait.
Don’t go broke, but don’t give up either. If you’re only spending 2 dollars a time on your dream, then what’s the downside? Even if you only make a little more than minimum wage, you can get that two dollars in 15 minutes. The rest of the hours you work that week can go to your responsibilities. You have nothing to lose by staying in the game, so don’t quit, keep visualizing, and keep taking massive action in others ways that could result in your multi millions, the lottery aside. Anything positive is possible!
I Learn To Ask Myself Empowering Questions
“Why do I never win?” is not an empowering question. When finding out I lost I like to ask myself questions like “How do I win the next time?” or “How do I benefit from this failure?” Questions like these will lead one to examine themselves in an empowering way. If you can learn to become empowered when you fail, as when you succeed, you will become unstoppable.
When you become unstoppable in one area of your life, all other areas of your life will follow suit. When you can play with passion and enthusiasm, even after failure after failure, you are getting closer to that “Yes!” that you so desire in your heart. I went from place to place looking for a second job and there were many “no’s” I heard along the way. I kept plugging away. A week later I got a second job. It’s not a miracle (although miracles are all around us), it’s a matter of work, effort, and action. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Getting a second job (which I have done), or attracting massive wealth and abundance (as I will do) is only a matter of action. Put in the action, ask empowering questions, and let the Universe work out the details for you.
There is a lot to be learned from failure, whether it’s with your job, your family, or the lottery. I’m sure there’s more to it than what I’ve covered here, but this is a start. If your not sure whether to continue or not, I urge you to press on and keep working to live your dream life. It might only be one action away…
As for me, I’m already a massive winner in my mind and heart, so I know that it’s only a matter of time before I’m living a life of wealth and abundance. If you would like to come along with me on this journey, join my email list and leave a comment on this post.
