If you don't believe you can win why bother to play the lottery? Why waste your time and money? Think outside the box. If you don't encourage yourself who will. If you don't believe in what you are trying to accomplish why bother. Believe in yourself and prove the nay sayers wrong. I believe anyone who plays the lottery can win in every drawing they play. Does that mean play every drawing, no, it means the drawing you decide to play will be a winner for you.

Look around you and see the things you enjoy everyday. These are things that the nay sayers said could not and would not happen. Examples: i-pod, TV, Car, Cell Phone, Wireless internet, Internet. Twenty-five years ago most of these things did not even exist and to be honest had someone mentioned that there was a way you could get 10,000 songs onto an item the size of a credit card, they would have been laughed at and told they were crazy. But It happened and we are reaping the benefits of comfort because they proved the nay sayers wrong. You don't have to reinvent the wheel just improve it. Look at cars. The car is still the same, it  has 4 wheels and runs on gas. What the auto makers does is build on the foundation of the car. We call it upgrades and pay through the nose for it.

I look at how the guy from MIT beat the casinos so bad that the casinos cried foul. He did not cheat. All he did was take what was in front of him and find a solution. Set your goal and no matter how stupid or unattainable it may appear, know that it is possible and you can make it happen.

Just because it has never been done does not mean it can not be done. All it means is no one has figured out how to do it yet. Ignore the nay sayers. Encourage yourself when doubt and uncertainty try to creep in. Boot them out.

You can win every drawing you play. Prove the nay sayers wrong. WIN!! WIN!! WIN!!

                      If card counting and what-ever else is legal, then Why not?

                      Is BlackJack a game of skill? The lottery is also a game of skill, of course not in the same way.

                          That's why I join the quest. I believe I can win the jackpot, multiple times within the next 3 years. Builting on the foundation of lottery to create amazing system to trap the jackpot.

                          People will laught and deny your dreams, once you are living your dream they want to be part of it, or a piece of it. By then, it may be too late.

                              I think persons who take *Risk* against the odds are indeed better for it. For without risk there can be no real conclusion. Mostly I conclude after each play that I have lost, yet there will come a time where I will have concluded I won and won BIG! Til then , Risk and take the odds .

                              I really dont  "BELIEVE" I WILL WIN. I simply beleive that at some point Lady Luck will want to  grace my ticket and when that time comes, I want to know I played! SO I bother not because I think every play is a winner but that at some point goodness will come upon my family .
