I Must Win the Lottery
You do your weekly ritual – fill out the numbers you usually bet on, pay for your ticket and treasure it in your wallet (we hope you don’t go as far as framing it, or at least not until you win). Eager anticipation and then… bam, the draw takes place. You didn’t win the lottery this time and your heart drops just a little bit.
We all have dreams of winning the lottery. We all hope that the coming draw is the lucky one. After all, karma’s supposed to be helping. You’re patient, you get your ticket each week and sooner or later, you expect to get something back.
Just like you, I want to win the lottery. I want to win it real bad. Here are some of my reasons for wanting it and chances are that you feel the same.
I Don’t Quit
I’m stubborn and I don’t quit. Each week I’m there and I buy my lottery ticket. Many other lottery players do the very same. They don’t quit, regardless of the failures.
Has your wife given up already or threatened to do something if you don’t stop buying lottery tickets? Well, one thing you should remember is that people who win the lottery don’t quit. No matter what the circumstances are, they keep on buying tickets. Sooner or later, their efforts pay off.
I’m a Good Person
We’ve been thought this lesson from an early age – good things happen to good people. Chances are that you’re a really nice person. Yet, you haven’t won the lottery. In fact, you don’t seem any closer to getting there.
Good things do happen and you simply should persevere. You know the odds and you know that winning the lottery isn’t easy. If it were easy, the fun would be gone, right? It’s a challenge that you want to conquer. Plus, you’re a nice person, remember?
I Need the Money
Don’t we all? Isn’t this one of the main reasons for playing lottery games? It’s a ticket out of financial trouble.
Chances are that you’re already dreaming about starting your own business, traveling the world or buying that fancy car when you win the lottery. We simply can’t underestimate the importance of the financial component.
Even if you’re not in financial trouble, you’ll certainly find a good use for a few thousand additional dollars. The promise of easy money is the one that draws so many people to giving the lottery a try. Who wouldn’t want to pay a couple of bucks for a simple ticket and end up a few million dollars richer?
I Have Goals, Dreams and Aspirations
There are people who don’t know what they’ll do with the money if they win the lottery. Infuriatingly enough, these people win quite often (hmm, maybe I should think about a change of strategy).
Unlike those people, I have clear goals and dreams. I know exactly what I want to do with the money. Some of it will go towards starting a business, some of it will be saved for my kids and some of it will go to charity. These are reasons enough for the divine powers to award me with some easy cash, don’t you think?
I Deserve to Win Just like Everybody Else does
How are people who have already won the lottery different from me and you? If your answer is that they’re richer, you’re probably right. The truth of the matter is, however, that these people aren’t that much different.
Everyone deserves to win the lottery. It’s not a privilege, but a game of luck. If a housewife from Oregon or a pensioner from Glasgow can do it, so can I!
I Want Options
Winning the lottery gives you options. You can continue working; you can go back to school, study or become a volunteer and help the poor in Africa. Having enough money gives you options and you can pursue your dreams.
Regular folks don’t have the luxury of pursuing their dreams. Bills, down payments and other financial burdens leave very little time for bringing a dream to reality. As a result, every day looks like the previous and many are stuck in a job and an everyday existence that they hate.
I Just Want to Win for Once in My Life
The final reason is far from rational, but we all know that winning feels good. It’s empowering, it makes you feel special and it gives you wings (literally, if you buy a private jet with the jackpot).
This is just a concise list that I’d like to share with the world and any deity that could be listening to what I have to say. I’m not giving up on the dream to win the lottery and hopefully, one day it will come true. How about you? Have you won in the past? If not, why do you think you should win the lottery? Don’t hesitate to share with us!
