...... Since I never won the lottery, let's return to what actually happened.
In 2001, I was dead broke because my part-time job simply did not cover even the basics. Then I heard a line in a movie that went something like thos: "Sometimes we have to let a dream go to make room for a miracle." This became a major epiphany, especially when I connected it to my lottery obsession. I realized we can focus on an end, but we must allow the Universe to provide the means. If we tresspass on that territory, we effectively close all other channels through which the Universe might operate. In this state of stagnationabsolutely nothing happens in terms of advancing our goals.
By connecting the dots, I realized that if I discontinued the lottery I would probably abort all the scheming that went along with it.The next day, I still felt compelled to walk away from this obsession and of course, I had not increased my net worth by even a dime oin those 24 hours. Astoningishly, my boss then offered me new duties that would double my hours within a few months.
The lesson here was not to stop playing the lotto, but to consider dropping counterproductive habits and thoughts.............
As a side note, I still buy lottery tickets but my investments to date remain far greater thasm the paltry winings I have accumulated. The good news is that I spend a lot less time thinking about it.

When all states allow winners to remain anonymous some clod will want a press conference.
