My pretty intelligent mind knows the odds but, like millions of other people, I fell into your trap again. Do I need that much money? Of course not. Do visions appear of things I could do, of places I could go? Pretty much….sucked in!
Before falling asleep, I rewrote my mental list of all of the wonderful things I would do with my windfall. No need to count sheep, I was busy trying to remember all the family & friends that I could help financially.
I remembered I was going to need to find a lawyer and financial advisor & no matter how excited I would be, I would wait until things were set before claiming my prize.
I remember hearing about how everyone wants you (your money) after they find out you won, how people have to worry a lot about privacy. As I fell asleep, I was prepared.
I didn’t even get to live in ‘maybe’ I was a winner land. 1 winner in California means the news didn’t even publish the numbers.
242 million dollars (taking the cash payout) I will not be spending unselfishly
Family I will not be helping, Staff I will not be hiring (oh did I forget to mention perhaps I wanted to hire someone to clean the house and a few other things)
back to work & cleaning my own house…..
