Why you should figure out what you love to do while you are waiting to win the lottery

I’ll start by saying that I play the lottery.  And I like wondering what I’d do for the rest of my life if I win.  I actually think that helps me figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life whether I win or lose!

But if you play the lottery, cross your fingers but don’t hold your breath.  My Financial Journey put the odds in perspective. Here are a few of the examples:

  • You are more 208 times more likely to be struck by lightening this year than win the powerball (Source: National Weather Service)
  • You are 16 times more likely to get killed driving 10 miles to
    claim your Powerball ticket than actually winning it in the first place

  • If every single person alive on the planet (6.5 Billion) bought a powerball ticket – only 44 people would win (Source: Google Search )
  • You are 18,038 times more likely to have triplets than win the power ball (Source: BabyCenter and Storknet)  (I know somebody that won this one!)
