Fear is good; it protects the unprepared. Panic is the opposite; it jeopardizes the lives of the unprepared and others.

What if one is afraid they will panic?

      Maybe not initially, but combined with my current occupation, and investments, one day it would. Of course the whole point of me playing the lottery is not to continue working, at least not for "others." I could live off of 'lucky for life' winnings however very comfortably, and still have plenty of extra money for powerball each week.

        Prepare and you won't panic - that simple. It is a survival tool.  If you plan what you will do when you are in a car accident, you will not panic when you have that accident.  If you learn how to swim, you will not panic when you fall off into the water.  Being fearful and scared is not panic. One of the differences between you and a deer is that you don't panic when headlights hit your eyes, you look away. You're prepared. A deer will panic. Humans have a choice. Deer don't. Prepare for the good and the bad.

        Cheers
