- May 26 & 27 - All libraries CLOSED for Memorial Day
Last week when the Lottery Prize was so high, everybody I knew was playing! Even me, the person who can't stand to gamble, played.
The reason I like to play the lottery is to have a day or two of really good day-dreaming about what I'd do with all that money.... Think back to what you were dreaming of last week between shelling out a couple of bucks and then realizing you didn't win.
Stop for just a second and think. If money were no object, what *would* you do?
Would you pay off your bills? Set up a college fund for your kids? Buy a new car? Go on a trip overseas? Quit your job and start your dream business?
Now - stop again and think about how you might actually do those things in your current financial situation. If your dreams weren't of gold-plated cadillacs, you probably could take the steps necessary to achieve them!
Take a look at some of these books on achieving your goals.
Isn't it great that you played the Lottery last week and lost?
On Friday, March 30th, there will be a drawing for an over 500 million dollar jackpot. All it takes to win the whole thing is to guess 5 numbers between 1 and 56, and guess a "mega" number between 1 and 46. Sounds easy, you think, but the odds are 1 in 178 million to make that mathematically near impossible feat happen. But someone is going to be that one suddenly wealthy person. Could it be you? Edward Ugel tells his and others stories of chasing after the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There are fictional stories of lottery winners, and an excellent, though sad, documentary of a group of lottery winners.
