Do you ever get discouraged or you don't give up?

Some days I feel confident with the lottery. Other days I feel very discouraged and do not even want to spend $1.00 on a ticket, because my instincts are not working well with the numbers, and I don't want to go broke.

 

How do you play the lottery and not think about failure- and keeping your head up?

 

thank you for any input, ElizabethCoffee

      Yes, I certainly do, since I have not won or won only free replays or very little amount that won't even help meUnhappy.  Today, is just one of the days and I am getting very frustratedMad--I am trying not to think about it but I can't help it, if I don't see the results I want...

      Just hang in there, we will win big very soon!!!.Smile  GOOD LUCK TO YOU.Dance

        only pay attenition to the winning stories of long time players,

        like this recent iowa group.

         

        In consolation, I been playing since the 70s,

        still waiting.

         

        maybe skip days when you don't feel good about it.

          I feel like I've been playing since the 1770's.  I just missed hitting George Washington's Mountain Road Lottery by one number!

          Elizabeth, hang in there because as long as:

          a) You only spend money that you can comfortably lose

          b) You take into account the long odds and expect to lose way more often than win

          c) You are having fun with it

          Then you should be okay.  But I know what you're saying, because sometimes it's not easy to have all three of those going at the same time, especially during a long slump.

          I agree with Haymaker - a few days off can help re-energize you as well as save a few dollars for when you do decide to get back in the game.

          Good luck, have fun, and keep your chin up.

                Keep backtesting ideas and find something that works sometimes.. and stay with it and don't worry about other methods.  If it works sometimes and you play all the time, you will win sometimes.

                While backtesting, play on paper..  When you lose.. you can smile and think..'geeh, glad I didn't play" .. if it wins... then record what you did, and keep that method..

                    If your nums never hit then there's still that possibility.

                      Thank you to everybody- I will keep the faith, and take off days from the lottery when I need to refresh, and play numbers again. Eventually we will all win hopefully!!

                        Though hopefully not all on the same day on the same game, or we'd each get a buck fifty.

                        Best of luck to you.

                          Listen, don't you ever give up on something you truly believe in. Your belief system is the strongest, and, most important thing in your possession. This is what sets people apart, okay. The stronger your belief system, the more things manifest into your life in the natural. Everybody can't win the lottery because of their belief system...they'll play it, and, even spend a ton of money, but they really don't think the right way. I may not be explaining this where you can understand it but, I'm telling you some good stuff!! Just believe.

                            No, I don't get discouraged and I don't give up.

                            I try not to take all of this too seriously and I stay within my budget.

                            Start spending what you can't afford and wanting to win so bad, that's too Vegas for me! lol

                            Just have fun with it, kind of step away and not get too emotional.
