Have you heard Donald Trump’s story recently? – You know, the New York property billionaire, with the crazy hair.
Turns out he was sailing close to the financial wind a few years back. He’s not a stranger to rough waters financially but he was on the verge losing a lot of money and going bankrupt again.
But he had a plan.
When the many banks he owed money to called to collect he set up a special meeting and laid out his strategy to get back on top and pay them back. It was a bold solution, but it was appealing because he owed more money than the banks could afford to lose.
They agreed – on one condition… that he cut back his personal monthly spending – a lot.
Trump refused. He said that it would reduce his motivation and give out the wrong signals to his staff and customers.
Can you imagine this scenario? A group of high powered bankers sitting around a giant boardroom table, peering down at “The Donald” and surrounded by his advisors, as he blithely tells them what he’s going to do with their loans.
Can you imagine the tension and the questions that everyone had having absolutely no guarantee that his plan would work? Well, they gulped, but they agreed. And a year or so later Trump had moved into the black – and repaid most of the loans.
Win at the Lottery
There’s a lesson here. The only investment that will give you a chance to make a great deal of money rapidly is your lottery game. You’re not going to get many millions, like many of the Powerball or Mega Millions offers, at your day job anytime soon.
You NEED to continue playing if you really want to win at the lottery. You NEED to make playing your game a priority, regardless of what others want you to do. Like Trump, you don’t want to give up that part of your life.
Your lottery playing is an investment and has the potential to completely change your world in an instant. Something no other financial instrument can do. That’s why so many hundreds of millions of people round the world play each week.
If you have a problem finding the spare cash, take an inventory of things you can do without. Do you smoke? Give it up. And whatever you cut down, don’t neglect your health or your family, but slash any luxuries to keep your lotto game bubbling along.
