I alway want to win. I think of all the things that I could do, and all the people that

I could help. When I see people that hit it big and take it for granted. Good fortune doesn't strike

everyone, but when It does hit for me I will make the best of it. Lesson learn.

    They won it, it's their money, and it's theirs to do as they wish.

      this is true but when you are struggling to feed your family and you see people winning big and spend $200,000 on purses it's hard not to get a little upset.  I forget the name of the purse lady, but she claims she wrote a dollar amount on a piece of paper, stuck it under the pillow and then she won exactly that much $$$.  yeah right. 

       

      I don't know I guess it's not really that they throw it away, it's the fact that they do interviews and talk about how they throw it away.  There's no way on Earth i would do any interviews if I won.

          There is no deserve to win in lotto or any other form of gambling.

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

          Lep

          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.

                oo0H Play-Girl, just keep playing and wishing good for others who are in line ahead of you, and when you least expect it, Zap!! your turn!!!  And we all will be happy for you too! 

                I believe that is part of the key, not allowing envy or the green eyed monster in because when it is our turn, we don't want others to have such feelings against us!Wink

                  There is no greeneyed monster here. I know that it's there money. Most people look at how people

                  win the money and throw it away feel that if it hadn't being me I could have done better things with it. I bet if you could talk to some they would handle it different. I know it for a fact I know of one jackpot winning 17million and one

                  156,000 winning who died broken, and other had to buried him.

                      Everything has it season. I feel bless when I win cash3 and cash 4 not a jackpot, but money is money. I always

                      try and spend it wisely, because of what I've heard and seen from people who say it's my money, and i do as I please.

                        The fact that someone else wins a large sum of money and chooses to spend it in a way that I may not doesn't make me more deserving nor do I feel that I am more deserving.

                        Just like the coulda, woulda, shoulda and if onlys I think it's better not to compare what you would do with the money if only it was yours. Focus on what you're going to do with YOUR money when you win!

                          In the annals of lottery history there has only ever been one person that truly deserves to win the jackpot. That person is me.

                          And in your heart you know I'm right.
