        Texas using the results pages the only time 711 came out straight on 07/11 was in

         

        Tue, Jul 7, 1998TexasPick 37-1-1

         

        now it could have come out in other places years ago but the results on here only go back so far.

        while there is a chance 711 might come out somewhere today. you have a better chance of getting hit by lightening if you stand outside holding a steel rod..

          This number was a follower of  the 511 that hit on Today in the Texas Past History,Not counting a straight play i usually play doubles combination so i can still get the same pay as a straight play only it cost a little more but i feel that this number has a good chance this month because looking at the complete history it also hit on the 12th 14th 15th 17th 23rd 31th,The dates are very important when tracking not the actual month we are in,For the record,Four4me i don't think i would try the little experiment above,Goodluck or shall i say good fortunes to you,,,,,,Delores247

            Luck determines the cards you are dealt. Knowledge and skill determines how you play them. A lucky person finds a way to use his abilities to come out ahead. This is true in lottery games and is also a factor in the game of life.

            We all know someone who is extremely lucky. Think of the luckiest person you know. You will find that person is usually happy, outgoing and upbeat. They know how to make the best of any situation. On the other hand think about someone you know who always seems to have bad luck. Do they complain and gripe all the time? The "Lucky" person is usually the one with the positive attitude. Look at the chart below. Compare these traits and see how many fit your personality.

            Personality Traits:
            Lucky---------Unlucky
            Optimistic----Pessimistic
            Confident-----Unsure
            Happy---------Grumpy
            Generous------Miserly
            Outgoing------Introverted
            Contented-----Complains

            It's just possible that your attitude can change your luck. We've all heard the saying, "When life deals you lemons, Learn how to make lemonade". The person that turns an adverse situation into an advantages one is sometimes looked upon as being lucky, when it was actually their attitude that brought about the luck.

            Here is a little exercise you can do to try and change your attitude and your luck. When you get up in the morning think about one of luckiest things that has happened to you in your life. Maybe it was meeting that special person in you life or finding a hot stock that tripled over night. Perhaps it was that one time you were in "the right place at the right time". Keep the thought of that event in the back of your mind. During the day if things don't go exactly right think back on your past good fortune and don't get discouraged.

            Luck Favors the Prepared Mind!

            lets  all  remember  RAVEN62  Post and  his  advice  on  How  to  be  lucky  when  playing  our  numbers , and  in  our  life  situations ;

            Never  wear  Red  ....is  very  good  advice ...when  playing  numbers ....  ;

            he  also  advised  us :

            Can I Really be Lucky?

            Yes, you can be lucky, here's how!

            1. Know what you want!
            2. Let everyone know what you want!
            3. If at first you don't succeed, then try, try and try again, and then give up and do something else!
            4. Be a lifelong learner!
            5. Trust your intuition!
            6. Believe you will succeed!

                  um  Um  UM.....A long time ago I posted on LP:::::

                  There is so much good in the worst of us,

                  and so much bad in the best of us,

                  that it hardly behooves any of us, 

                  to criticize the rest of us!

                    I would suggest this.....

                     

                    First off start making a list of all the goods things that happen in your life on a daily basis....

                    IE you meet a cool person write that down.

                    you find a penny write that down.

                    you win 5 or 10 dollars or even a free ticket in the lottery write that down.

                    Your child gets a really good grade in school write that down.

                     

                    that is a step in showing a conscious gratitude to God, The Universe, The Source whatever is in your belief system. You show gratitude for what is done for you and then you attract more good things.

                    So often people focus on what they do for others or will do for others if the say win the lottery or something. IE Stop listing off all the people you will help if you win the lottery that does nothing in attracting a lottery win to you in fact it may detract you from getting one because you are focusing on giving instead of recieving. You are focusing on what you have done or have done for others instead of being grateful for what has been done for you or given to you.  If you do give some or part of your winnings later that is okay just don't focus on it as a way of thinking because you would do such a thing that you are somehow entitled to win. It doesn't work that way. That is not how attraction works. You mentally focus on giving then you end up giving more if you mentally focusing on recieving you recieve more.  Once you do good or give to others immeadiately forget that you have done the good thing. Don't bask in the glory of a good deed. Instead reflect on all that has been given to you or done for you. LIVE IN CONSTANT GRATITUDE!!!

                    Next set a goal of what you want.  What are your dreams. How much will they cost. Be very detailed in your list writing down your dreams and what they would cost if they are ones that involve money and most likely in regards to winning the lottery they will involve money.

                    Writing them down is very important as it is a way of focusing on those dreams.

                    You can try putting keywords around your house or apartment. such as "Luck, Winner, Abundance, Destiny," or phrases such as "Positive Cash Flow Increase" or any others you can think of. Just make sure they are direct to the point and positive.

                    This next one is very hard in regards to winning the lottery for some people.  Be happy for others who win even if it is a jackpot you are playing for.  Remember that the jackpot will grow again and then you will have your chance.

                    There is abundance in the universe and enough for all of us to live our dreams.

                    Main thing is keep believing you are lucky. Keep staying it to yourself no matter what happens...

                    Want everyone to win. But focus on your own win.

                    I want to win my jackpot. I also want all of you to win your jackpot.  We can all win.

                    words  to  live  by ;

                      YOU CAN’T AFFORD THE LUXURY OF A NEGATIVE THOUGHT

                      In any given moment, there is ample evidence to prove that life is a bed of thorns or a

                      garden of roses. How we feel about life depends on where we place our attention, that is,

                      what we focus upon.

                      Why is it no one ever sent me yet One perfect limousine, do

                      you suppose? Ah no, it's always just my luck to get One

                      perfect rose.

                       

                      DOROTHY PARKER

                      Did you ever notice that every time you are given a rose, the stem is covered with thorns?

                      (If you take the thorns off, the flower wilts more quickly. Florists know this, which is

                      why they leave the thorns on.) Do you say, "Why are you giving me this stick with thorns

                      on it?" Of course not. You admire the beauty of the rose. Even if you prick yourself in

                      your enthusiasm, it never seems to hurt--you are too engrossed in appreciating the rose

                      and the person who gave it to you.

                      Right now, in this moment, without moving from where you are, you can find ample

                      evidence to prove your life is a miserable, depressing, terrible burden, or you can find

                      evidence to prove your life is an abundant, joyful, exciting adventure.

                      Let's start with the negative. Look at all the imperfections around you. No matter how

                      good anything is, it could be better, couldn't it? Look for dirt, disorder, and dust. See all

                      the things that need cleaning, repairing, and replacing? An endless array of clutter, chaos,

                      and catastrophe assaulting your senses. And all those

                      damn damn alliterations in this paragraph.

                      Dis-gusting.

                      Now, explore the same environment with an attitude of gratitude and appreciation.

                      Look around the same area you just surveyed and find the good. You can start with

                      whatever you're sitting or lying on. It's probably softer than a concrete floor. Look at all

                      the other objects you use but take for granted--glasses (both seeing and drinking), tables,

                      windows, the walls and ceiling sheltering you from the elements. Consider the wonder of

                      the electric light. A hundred years ago, you would have to have been very rich or very

                      lucky to have had even one. And you probably have more than one--and a TV and a radio

                      and many other electronic marvels.

                      What around you do you find aesthetically pleasing? A painting you haven't really looked

                      at in years? The detail work on the clothes you're wearing? A flower? A vase?

                      Wallpaper? Carpet? When was the last time you took a moment to appreciate colors?

                      One should sympathize with the joy, the beauty, the color of

                      life-- the less said about life's sores the better.

                      OSCAR WILDE

                      Did you notice that you tended to feel better when you focused on the positive things in

                      your surroundings? The process of focusing on the positive to produce more positive

                      feelings works the same with things even more intimate than your surroundings--your

                      body, for example.

                      If you look for all the things wrong with the body, boy, are you going to find them. Pains

                      here, bumps there, rough spots here, too much fat there--the list goes on and on (and, as

                      we get older, goes on and on and on and on).

                      But take a look at all that's right with your body. Even if you have a pain in your left foot,

                      you can be thankful there's not one in your right. How about all those processes we take

                      for granted? Digestion, circulation, respiration, assimilation, thinking-- yes, we think

                      without having to even think about it. And let's not forget the five senses. Some people

                      take them so much for granted they can't name all five without thinking, "Let's see, what's

                      the fifth one?"

                      It's as though there were two attorneys in your mind, one gathering evidence for "Life is

                      Awful" and the other gathering evidence for "Life is Wonderful." You're the judge and

                      can rule out any evidence you choose. Your decision is final. Which judicial ruling do

                      you suppose would lead to more joy, happiness, peace, ease, and health?

                      Try thinking of love or something.

                      CHRISTOPHER FRY

                      To focus on the positive is not to disregard certain warning signals of a negative nature

                      that, if ignored, eventually lead to inconveniences at best and disaster at worst. (If we use

                      these "negative" signals to avoid disaster, then they're not so negative after all. Some

                      even call them guardian angels.)

                      Let's say you're driving down the freeway and the little light goes on, telling you you're

                      running out of gas. I do not suggest ignoring that bit of "negativity" and focusing on how

                      wonderful it is that none of the other warning lights is on. I suggest you get some gas.

                      Here, by the way, is where negative thinking comes in. The negative reality is that you're

                      low on gas. Negative thinking begins the litany, "I wonder if I'm going to run out of gas

                      before I reach the next station. What will I do if that happens? I'm in the middle of

                      nowhere. What if some highway robbers get me? If I do get to a gas station, will it be the

                      kind I have credit cards for? I bet it will be more expensive than in town. I bet it will be

                      self-service and the pump will be dirty and my hands will smell funny after. I knew I

                      should have filled up in town. Why am I so lazy and stupid?" Etc., etc., etc.

                      During this inner tirade (which, for accomplished negative thinkers, takes place in under

                      five seconds) the driver, in his or her anxiety, usually speeds up, which only wastes gas.

                      We are wide-eyed in contemplating the possibility that life

                      may exist elsewhere in the universe, but we wear blinders

                      when contemplating the possibilities of life on earth.

                      NORMAN COUSINS

                      What I suggest is this: take note of the negative information, decide what to do about it

                      (whatever corrective action seems to be in order) and return to focusing on the positive

                      (in this case the music, the scenery, the passengers) while working on eliminating the

                      negative.

                      With medical conditions, it's good to keep track of symptoms, but it does no good to

                      dwell on them. The positive thinker might deny the early symptoms of a disease, making

                      a cure more difficult. The negative thinker might turn every mosquito bite into a killer

                      bee sting.

                      Positive focusers take a middle road. They note symptoms accurately so they can be

                      reported to their health-care provider. They make an appointment. Beyond that, there's no

                      point in dwelling on the symptoms, so they turn their attention to things more positive.

                      While we're considering the idea that there is sufficient evidence in any given moment to

                      prove that life is wonderful or that life is terrible, let's take a look at how this works even

                      closer to home: in our memories of the past and our anticipation of the future.

                      Here, too, we can muddle in the negative: "Tommy wouldn't play with me when I was

                      six." "I have to go to the dentist next week, and I hate the dentist."

                      Or, we can do positive thinking: "I'm winning the Oscar this year," when we've never

                      been in a movie. "I'm going hiking and camping next week," when we've just had major

                      surgery. "I have so many wonderful friends," when the phone hasn't rung in two weeks.

                      Or, we could try focusing on the good memories that actually happened and on realistic

                      plans we look forward to with pleasure. "That movie on TV last night was so good."

                      "Helen's coming to visit tomorrow; that will be nice." "The book I ordered should be

                      arriving any day."

                      Yes, it's good to "live in the moment," but who does that all the time? As long as you're

                      living in memories of the past and projections of the future, you might as well make them

                      happy memories and joyful projections.

                        In any given moment, there is ample evidence to prove that life is a bed of thorns or a

                        point in dwelling on the symptoms, so they turn their attention to things more positive.

                        While we're considering the idea that there is sufficient evidence in any given moment to

                        prove that life is wonderful or that life is terrible, let's take a look at how this works even

                        closer to home: in our memories of the past and our anticipation of the future.

                        Here, too, we can muddle in the negative: "Tommy wouldn't play with me when I was

                        six." "I have to go to the dentist next week, and I hate the dentist."

                        Or, we can do positive thinking: "I'm winning the Oscar this year," when we've never

                        been in a movie. "I'm going hiking and camping next week," when we've just had major

                        surgery. "I have so many wonderful friends," when the phone hasn't rung in two weeks.

                        Or, we could try focusing on the good memories that actually happened and on realistic

                        plans we look forward to with pleasure. "That movie on TV last night was so good."

                        "Helen's coming to visit tomorrow; that will be nice." "The book I ordered should be

                        arriving any day."

                        Yes, it's good to "live in the moment," but who does that all the time? As long as you're

                        living in memories of the past and projections of the future, you might as well make them

                        happy memories and joyful projections.

                              rule 2;  maximize  your  chance opportunitties ;

                              lucky  people make succesful decisions by  using thier intuitions and gut feelings;

                              Example-I  went  to  the  store  and  payed  my  numbers  , after  I  finshed  my  list  I  asked  the  clerk  how  much  is  that  he  said 5.50  and  my  GUT  told  me  to  play  that  so  I  played  550

                              I  won $80.00  a  lucky  hunch;
