Being positive and winning sweepstakes
If you agree that being positive and having positive thoughts will help you win sweepstakes and lottery, please post here!
Please tell everybody what it means to be positive.
Also, if you can, please explain why you are more likely to win if you are positive.
I’ll never win the lottery because I just don’t play it. As for HSN sweepstakes, bah, humbug. At least I have fun playing!
I prefer to have an attitude of gratitude for the blessings in my life
I have wonderful children and beautiful grandchildren
I have my health
I have a job
I have a house to live in
Many many other people have no family, bad health, are unemployed (not by choice) and are homeless. Although I do not have a really good paying job or fancy house there are so many who have nothing. My situation could always be worse and in a hurry.
Being positive does not increase your odds of winning anythng however you are not as sad when you do not.
Don’t know if this is irrelevant to the OP but just wanted to share.
I always said,"If it wasn’t for bad luck ,I wouldn’t have luck at all"
Big wake up call for me,when someone said,"You should be ashamed of yourself!"
She said,"You have your health,a great family,beautiful home,food on the table."
You have won the lottery!Now be thankful!From this day on, I’m thankful for all Gods blessings!
I have always taken the position that the glass is half full rather than half empty. It works for me, especially if the glass is half full of Wild Turkey.
A positive attitued goes along way. Read the book "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne. All about Laws of Attraction. Basically if you visualize what you want out of life, believe it, stay positive it will come to you and it is yours. Does it always work, "No". I believe God does know whats best for each us, but in all things we are suppose to stay positive. It really does help get us through life.
The week I read "The Secret", I stayed positive, visualized good things and had an incredible week. I received 3 checks in the mail that week, something like $200.00 total. Can’t remember what they were from now as this was about 5 years ago or so. I have bought this book for several of my friends and most of them said it helped them. The only person it has never helped is my brother-in-law who has the worst luck. Bad luck follows him but he does bring most of it on himself.
Currently, my luck hasn’t been so good lately, I quit my job because I was offered a better job with more pay than what I was expecting and then at the last minute the company didn’t start up when it was suppose to. Now no job, I thought I could get another job easy and I am not having much luck. I can go back to the company I worked for before but not the same position and not full time hours. I guess I need to start visualizing again and practice what I always preach.
This has been the subject of several psychological studies and has resulted in the "Illusion of Control" a phrase coined and studied by Psychologist Langer. She contends that positive illusions such as illusion of control are really overestimations of control.
Some illusions of control are aided by lucky coins, written affirmations, repeating positive mantras, positive fantasies, etc. Other studies such as those conducted by Wegner that measure peoples’ susceptibility to the illusion of control have shown that they are actually less successful in career and personal endeavors. Positive illusions, they contend, are de-energizing and make energy to achieve goals seem unnecessary.
Tell that to the Canadian Olympic hockey teams who in 2002 unbeknownst to others placed a one dollar Canadian coin under the ice when the field was being made in Salt Lake. Only the Canadian men’s & women’s teams knew about the coin and both went on to defeat the US teams for the gold medal.
I’m positive it doesn’t but it’s more fun to go through life with a positive outlook and it certainly can’t hurt your chances of winning. Perhaps positive people comprise the majority of those who enter contests and/or play the lottery!
I believe God knows what is best for us and always tries to lead our lives in that direction. How many times when you were younger did you pray and wish for something only to breathe a sigh of relief that you didnt get it. Money can turn your life in different directions, doesnt mean God is being mean to you if you dont win the lottery, it just means it wont help your spiritual growth and that is why we are here in the first place. When something bad happenes in my life I stand back and try to find what this is trying to teach me. I suppose this way of thinking is a positive one.
Having positive thoughts will never hurt anyone.
It all depends on ones life experiences.
In my instance,I positively told myself I know I’m going to win
and on three occasions I did.
I actually just hit a jackpot for 1,500.00 at a ladies night out.
It was a friends birthday and she wanted to go to the casino.
For some reason I knew I was going to win and I did.
I shared the money with my two friends and the rest with my two sons,
my mom and hubby.I bought myself a pair of Steve Madden leather boots.
Does luck have a lot to do with it?Of course!
But in the meantime,I’m going to keep the positive vibes going.
Massha I was taught to approach everything in life with a positive attitude. I guess lottery ,and sweepstakes are included.
I look at life as PRIORITIES AND POSITIVITIES- Choose what your priorities are and stay posotive.
Positivity is the opposite of negativity. To be positive for me starts for me as soon as my eyes open. Which reminds me I need to windex the mirror over my bed. BB BAD BOY
Massha, while I DON’T agree the being positive will help you WIN things…winning a lottery or raffle is just the luck of the draw and I take that as a blessing, not a WIN as such…
I do think that being a positive person, in the world we live in, helps me get thru my day..
