Jimmy Freeman of Fall River, MA points out his $25.6 million Powerball jackpot win in 2011. He didn't know when he would win, but kept trying.
I had an interesting email the other day. One of my potential Silverites (he hadn't bought yet) wanted to know exactly when he would win. He wanted date, time, amount and all that.
And when I couldn't tell him - as no-one else can either - he said he wasn't interested.
His problem? He suffered from a lack of Prize Desire. In other words, he was not willing to take a chance... even with the high rate of wins my System will give him.
But I see it all the time... buyers wanting certainty in an uncertain world, and unwilling to take a chance.
If you have these kind of problems, your prize desire is not high enough.
The answer is to concentrate on the prize, and reduce the problems that are stopping you from winning:
- What are you aiming for? Is it a modest $1 million like 57% of the readers who took this poll? (right).
A million may not be much these days, but if you are on a pension you'll be able to make this amount last a lifetime. I suggest you play the games with the highest 3-star rating from LottoPredict for quickest results in small prize games.
- What's your timeframe? How long do you expect to take to get a win? Many of our Silverite dropouts have unrealistic expectations. They want to believe that 4 weeks of trying will give them what they want. The reality is that regular winning might take longer, especially if they have limited funds for the tickets. You should not expect miracles on $10 a game.
- If you get a larger prize than you expect, have you planned for it? If suddenly you won $220 million instead of just a few thousand you were expecting like Powerball winner Brad Duke, then you better have some plans for giving some of it away. Large amounts require more thought and planning. Have you made a charity plan?
Powerball $220 million winner Brad Duke (pictured above) gives a lot to charity.When you list the benefits of winning, you'll find there are far more than you'd ever expect.
The complete and utter freedom in almost every part of your life is the main reason people play to win.
Balance that against the trivial reasons you don't want to be bothered... because you're not promised a win, or it takes 30 minutes to fill out your tickets instead of having them handed to you on a plate.
These events are very small compared to the vast potential ahead.
Can you make the grade? Is your Prize Desire high enough?
