I don't know about a big win boosting self esteem, I'd like to think I'd be the same person.

This thread does manke me wonder about the self esteem of jackpot winners who blow it all, what do you think happens to theirs?

rdgrnr,

You know that old Porter Wagoner song, A Satisfied Mind?

Wow coin! That question gives food for thought!!! People with low self esteem usually think that if they spread their money around they can get people to like them!

forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

Now, does it count??

    Hard to say. I'll let you know when I win.

    Good point.  Your life would change as you would have more options of what you can do in life.

    Money won is twice as good as money earned!

          rdgrnr,

          You know that old Porter Wagoner song, A Satisfied Mind?

          This one?

           

          How many times have
          You heard someone say
          If I had his money
          I could do things my way

          But little they know
          That it's so hard to find
          One rich man in ten
          With a satisfied mind

          Once I was waitin'
          In fortune and fame
          Everything that I dreamed for
          To get a start in life's game

          Then suddenly it happened
          I lost every dime
          But I'm richer by far
          With a satisfied mind

          Money can't buy back
          Your youth when you're old
          Or a friend when you're lonely
          Or a love that's grown cold

          The wealthiest person
          Is a pauper at times
          Compared to the man
          With a satisfied mind

          When my life has ended
          And my time has run out
          My friends and my loved ones
          I'll leave there's no doubt

          But one thing's for certain
          When it comes my time
          I'll leave this old world
          With a satisfied mind

          How many times have
          You heard someone say
          If I had his money
          I could do things my way

          But little they know
          That it's so hard to find
          One rich man in ten
          With a satisfied mind


                                                       
                               
                                                   

           

           

           

           

                                                                                                             

          "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"

                                                                                                      --Edmund Burke

              Tell it sister! Can we get a witness?

              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 don't know what would change as I haven't won yet, but the one thing that will always be with me is God. I've seen God's power. It's amazing and scary both at the same time. I believe he's behind me and he will lift me up. It doesn't have to be with the lottery; it could be any number of ways. But like I've said before, there's been times when I wanted something so much and believed it would happen that I literally tricked myself into not just believing it would happen, but actually know it would happen. And it did. So for the lottery, I don't think there's anything wrong with me wanting it, thinking I deserve to have it, and believe God will help me get it. A lot of people have told me that God doesn't answer all prayers, which might or might not be true, but I do be believe he listens to them. I'm also not a bad person. I'm a good person. Anytime someone needs my help, all they have to do is ask and I'll do it. I wish I could let people know how clear my conscience is. I said I'm an outcast and I am, but at least I'm not a robot under human flesh, and there's a lot of people like that out there.

                Another thing people have said to me before is that God does not like it when he is asked for money. Firstly, I do not follow scriptures in holy books such as The Bible. To do so, would be choosing one interpretation of God's word over another, which I do not want to do. I want the one true word of God and I know that if God can communicate with our ancestors he can do the exact same thing with me today. I'm a different person and you're a different person. Which is why, although I do not follow scriptures that claim to be God's word, I believe there's a God, and that he forms his relationship with everyone individually. He does not interact with you the same way he interacts with me. He might do it differently. He might answer our prayers differently.

                To me, God is a friend and family member. I talk to him like he's my best friend, my brother, and father. Which is why money is a completely legitimate thing to talk about with God. It's not the only thing I talk to him about, but I don't feel bad when I do. I know he's out to help me. I know he wants me succeed and I believe that God almighty is putting acceleration into my life. I know he will allow me to make mistakes too. I don't claim to be perfect and he knows I'm not perfect.

                So the next time you're outside, just look up into the sky and know the power of God I have helping me. I'm sure that's the kind of power you would like helping you too.

                  And Yes many have tried to tamper with it, just like they have tried to tamper with HIS Creation. With the destruction of the rain forest, distruction of whales, Mass Murders of human beings in the form of Genoside, and Wars; America Under Constant Attack by evil-spirited people!  Who would love to see her Fall, well It's not going to happen. It's ALMIGHTY GOD who Blessed America, and the Bible say "whom God Bless no man curse!

                  Just the same With the Word Of GOD the Bible have been under Attack by people with their own Ideas of what or who their GOD is! 

                  You don't have to believe the Bible for it to be the true word of GOD, The words GOD sent to us through the BIBLE is true, no man can alter it, It Stands.  It does not matter who believe in it or not. It is the truth! 

                  You are speaking words that are truth as far as the Bible goes, and you don't even realize it!  You are saying You have Faith, you Believe GOD!!  Well the Bible say that without faith it is impossible to Please GOD! It also describes what you are saying In Hebrew Chapter 11:1 "Nowfaith is the Substance of things hoped for, the Evidence of things not seen"You have not seen your Millions, yet you believe!  So it will be done!

                  You are also right and correct, when you say that you can come to ALMIGHTY GOD with your needs, and you can ask him for Money!!!  The Bible say, "It is GOD who gives us power to get wealth" and HE is not Limited to any one thing HE is GOD.

                  Guru101,  I am Pleased to meet you, you are a Believer!  You will find yourself in the Bible, In Romans 8:33 "Who shall lay any thing to the charge of GOD'S elect? It is GOD that Justifies"   Read Romans 5:1  Galatians 3:6 and then get to know the GOD you believe in!  He is There for you Guru!!!

                      Thank you for posting that JRosina. I'm glad you posted it. It made me feel really good. I will say that I haven't read the Bible very thoroughly. In fact, I haven't read it much at all. I prefer to stay away from the symbolic stuff. However, there is milk in the Bible that I have enjoyed reading.

                        What are your dislikes ca-?

                        Sometimes those issues can be resolved through intensive massage therapy.

                        By the way, I used to work for Massagers 'R' Us.

                        I've got issues HAHAHA!

                        One of my dislikes is that when it comes to my relationships I'm very insecure. Having alot of money isn't going to make me feel secure. Financially YES....but with my relationships I would probably become even more insecure.

                        I also dislike the fact that I feel like I'm being pulled in too many directions and not doing things that mean alot to me. For example I was doing so good at working out and watching what I eat and lately I've been eating too much junk, I'm tired alot, I haven't been working out like I want to.

                        Massage sounds really good right now!

                        The question was about self-esteem. YES I too would feel better about being financially set.......not having to worry about things money related but on a personal level........

                        If a person doesn't like the way he's treated or the way he treats people....

                        Doesn't like the way he looks....

                        Feels like a failure....

                        Has any type of insecurities etc.....

                        Money won't change any of that.  For me all the money in the world isn't gonna make me get off my butt and go workout. It has to come from within. I live above a lady who spends all her money ordering who knows what but USPS  FEDEX and UPS all deliver packages on a regular basis and ya know what? This lady is absolutely miserable.

                        I know in one of the posts someone said it (self-esteem) will either get better or get worse. SO TRUE!

                          ca-dreamin* I really like your reply. However you are before you have money, then you'll only get better or worse after hitting it big. Money only fixes financial difficulties and not who you are inside. This is why when the average person who has never experienced managing reasonable amounts of money wins a lot, they usually end up broke again...soon.

                          They have no money managing skills and try to "spend themselves happy". They purchase things which are very impractical in order to attract attention or display that they now have it "like that". Truth is, it's not really them and they wouldn't be spending it that way if they didn't have it from the start.

                          I'm very happy with who I am now and a MM or PB would not affect me in such a negative way. The person should make the money and not money making the person...

                            I've got issues HAHAHA!

                            One of my dislikes is that when it comes to my relationships I'm very insecure. Having alot of money isn't going to make me feel secure. Financially YES....but with my relationships I would probably become even more insecure.

                            I also dislike the fact that I feel like I'm being pulled in too many directions and not doing things that mean alot to me. For example I was doing so good at working out and watching what I eat and lately I've been eating too much junk, I'm tired alot, I haven't been working out like I want to.

                            Massage sounds really good right now!

                            The question was about self-esteem. YES I too would feel better about being financially set.......not having to worry about things money related but on a personal level........

                            If a person doesn't like the way he's treated or the way he treats people....

                            Doesn't like the way he looks....

                            Feels like a failure....

                            Has any type of insecurities etc.....

                            Money won't change any of that.  For me all the money in the world isn't gonna make me get off my butt and go workout. It has to come from within. I live above a lady who spends all her money ordering who knows what but USPS  FEDEX and UPS all deliver packages on a regular basis and ya know what? This lady is absolutely miserable.

                            I know in one of the posts someone said it (self-esteem) will either get better or get worse. SO TRUE!

                            You sound like an open and honest person who's compassionate and caring, ca-.

                            With those things going for you, you can overcome anything else. And if you can't, at least you're a nice person in a world seemingly full of jerks sometimes.

                            I'm glad to know ya and I hope you hit it big someday.

                              And I like what you said " Money only fixes financial difficulties and not who you are inside"

                              As I meditated more and more on this Issue of Self- esteeme, And our Big Win!

                              I wondered how many have self destruct because of It.  How sad that we humans do not understand that it always begins with us.  I had to learn that the hard way!

                              But now I'm a quick study and I know money is important, however, its not The most important thing in my life!!!  I refuse to worship at its altar.

                              forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                              Now, does it count??
