EuroMillions Inspires Optimism
Last Updated: Tuesday 13th September 2011, 09:08 am
The EuroMillions lottery game is one of the best as far as the ability to inspire optimism is concerned. The whole point of playing lottery games is to indulge in the inclination to think positively about the future, to think big and to explore possibilities which might otherwise never be considered. If a player then goes on to win a lottery jackpot then that is obviously an ideal outcome, but even if the jackpot isn’t won the experience of having participated will automatically help the player to consider being more optimistic about life in general.
There are some things which no amount of surveys or straw polls can ever measure with any meaningful degree of accuracy. The effect that the sense of optimism derived from participating in lottery games has on players is one of those things. That said, we do know from anecdotal evidence that lottery games have helped plenty of people to change their lives even though those people didn’t win any major prize.
The process seems to go something like this: a player buys lottery tickets and then imagines how life could be different if they were to win the jackpot. Maybe they would quit their job and start a business of their own? Or perhaps they would leave the neighbourhood in which they have lived their entire lives and move to somewhere completely different.
Whatever the case, if the jackpot remains elusive when the lottery draw takes place, a handful of players will continue to think about the plans that they had made and start looking for ways to achieve similar things without relying on winning a lottery jackpot. They may decide to start a new business of their own in their spare time in the hope of leaving their day job when the business takes off. Or they may decide to find work in the location of their dreams instead of simply continuing to live in the place in which they happened to have been born and raised. Either way, the optimism which had initially been sparked by participation in a lottery game doesn’t die when the lottery draw ends. Instead it continues and actually helps to change the lives of the people who are willing to find other ways of making their dreams come true.
The EuroMillions jackpot tonight (Tuesday 13 September) will be worth around £138 million. Buy your tickets online and dare to dream big dreams, then think about how you might be able to make those dreams come true regardless of whether or not you happen to win the jackpot! Enjoy the game and good luck!
