In a recently Forbes column I wrote, I make the case why the lottery is a good investment. No, not a good financial investment, but a good investment in yourself. Here’s a snippet:
The real question is not what toys you would buy or even how winning the lottery would change your life. The better question is how would winning the lottery improve your life? Daydream how the win would make your life better, and then figure out how you can create this change in your life even if you don’t win. I’ve spent nearly the last two decades working with sudden wealth recipients – people who have come into a windfall overnight. Sudden wealth can radically improve a person’ life, but it’s certainly not a requirement.
Most of my sudden wealth clients have said their windfall has given them more freedom, opportunity, and security, but these things are achievable even if you don’t hit the jackpot. When you think about winning, what is the one thing above all others that the win does for your life? How can you get closer to this without a windfall?
