Want to win the lottery?

Why? Is it to have a lot of money or to hold the big check and be on TV? If you know your why and are really clear about it, the actions you will be compelled to take will get you to that goal.

But sometimes we just aren't sure what we want, so we aren't clear about the actions to take.

What are you doing to get what you want? How's it working? Maybe, just maybe, you'll have to take different action.

Take stock today and see if what you're currently doing is working to get what you say you want.

Here's a hint: there are many more certain ways to get a lot of money than hoping and wishing to win the lottery! Get busy with action that moves you toward your dream!

I was checking out the book Thinkertoys yesterday, and there is s whole chapter in there about writing out your goals and rewriting them so that you can continue to tweak them and figure out, in a very precise manner, what it is that you want.

An interesting aside to your comment about there being so many better ways of making a lot of money than winning the lottery is that the education system doesn't encourage children to follow those paths. I'm thinking of the people who make a lot of money through their own talents. Which school really encourages sports stars (as a career), authors, entrepreneurs, actors. All worthy goals but driven out of us by a society that is designed to produce conformers.

Hey DC & Yall! Thanks for stopping by! DC, I've heard really good things about that book - thanks for the reminder, since that's one of the biggest complaints I hear ("I don't know what I want!"). I'm definitely going to check it out! Yall - I know, I'd sure like to get some of this awareness thinking into schools so we can learn this sooner. What if kids were taught that to be happy is just as important (if not more so) than making a ton of money by selling your soul. What if it's true that when you do what you love the money follows? We always seem to want that backup plan instead of deciding exactly what we do want and going for it. What if? Hmm...
