From the book From Poverty to Power

by James Allen and dr. Tag Powell

In the brain / mind, Poverty and Power thoughts cannot co-exist. If you think poverty thoughts you have no power. Power is secured by an inner core belief in your ability to rise from tha ashes. The active word here is belief , which cannot be obtained by mouthing positive phrases...

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      I believe in positive thinking because I've noticed when I buy tickets expecting to win I usually do but if I have doubts I don't......sometimes it's hard to think positive but I really do think it pays off.

        For instance there is a $2 ticket I have been buying lately and yesterday I won $40 two times and $100 another time so now when I buy them I expect to win.  Today I bought some and only won $10 but that's better than nothing.

      The odds for winning the $100 were not in my favor so something must have worked and I choose to believe it's positive thinking.

      The people I work with think I'm the luckiest person around but they think if they buy one ticket they should win and when they do they say "I never win"......well......duh.......what did they expect....not thinking positive...lol

                If everyone thinks positive, then that should improve their chances of winning the PB JP to, say,  one in 146 million.......

                    Thinks about how on any given drawing millions of people are using positive thinking to help their numbers hit.

                    And how many times does it work?

                    For one thing, it can't work for everybody - unless you want to see the scene aboutr the lottery in Bruce Almighty come to life - he was answering everyone's prayers, so all who asked won the jackpot - and got $17 each.

                    Back to the drawing board.

                      Does positive thinking affect your chances of hitting numbers? 

                      Yes, because if you weren't thinking positive, you wouldn't buy a ticket and if you didn't buy a ticket you wouldn't have a chance of hitting any numbers but your odds of winning are the same as anyone who buys a ticket. 

                       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                        I am thinking positively.  After seeing the winning numbers on Sat night, I am positive I'll never win a jackpot!

                            I think that it could go in any direction. There are many people in this world who make it their point in life to be positive, yet have bad things happen in their lives.

                            It doesen't hurt to be positive, but there's no guarantee for success.

                            Nothing in my world is black and white. Too many gray areas.

                            Totally agree.

                              Which increases the chance of winning.

                              Which actually increases the chances of losing even more money overall.

                              So perhaps positive thinking in lotto is a bad thing? Crying
