How to Win the Lottery

by Joe Vitale on April 1, 2013

A woman sitting beside me on a flight recognized me from my Law of Attraction books and movie appearances and said, “Joe, I keep trying to use that stuff to win the lotto but it just isn’t happening.”

I figured we were seated together for a reason, and took this as my opportunity to offer some help.

“You know why you haven’t won the lotto?” I asked.

“I need to buy the winning ticket?”

“Well, there’s that,” I said. “But most people are insisting that the money they want come in one way: from the lottery.”

“Yea, that’s me,” she said.

“If you don’t mind my being blunt, that’s small thinking and closed minded thinking, ” I explained. “The Universe is bigger and smarter and far more resourceful than that. You don’t need to win the lottery to get the money you want. You need to be open to it coming to you in any number of other ways.”

She seemed to reflect on what I said.  She commented, “I never thought of it that way.”

“You don’t really want to win the lottery,” I said. “What you really want is the money. The lotto is just one way it might come to you. Focus on what you want, not on how you will attract it.”

She really seemed to enjoy this discussion, so I proceeded.

“And if you want to go deeper into this, you don’t really even want the money,” I said.

That startled her.

“I don’t?”

“No, you want what the money will get you.  The money is a means to an end. What you really need to do is focus on what you want, not on the money. The money is a tool or a vehicle. It’s just one way you can have what you really want.”

I paused as she reflected on what I just said.

When I spoke at the Hay House event in Austin recently, I told the 2,000 people in attendance that as soon as they appreciated where they were and what they had in life right now, the faster they could speed up their ability to attract what they wanted.

In other words, it’s the underlying sense of urgency that keeps most of what you want away. The signal you are sending out is one of desperation or demand, which the Universe will respond to by matching.

Do you really want more desperation, demand, impatience or dissatisfaction?

I doubt it.

As I explained to the woman on the plane, most people are insisting that things happen a certain way, not realizing that that approach is based on what the ego considers possible. Yet the “Universe of all possibilities” can surprise you by bringing you what you want in a fresh way.

So declare what you really want, appreciate what you already have, be looking for the opportunities, and take action when you see them

That’s where miracles begin.

And it just might include winning the lottery — or something even better.

Ao Akua,

A mathematician once told me that with most lotteries, esp. the big “powerball” multistate lotteries, your odds of winning were better by not playing. He went on to say one was more likely to FIND a winning ticket someone discarded by mistake, and win, instead of actually buying one.

The only time I ever won anything was when on a whim I bought a $1 scratch ticket with some pocket change. I won $2. I went back in the store, got my dollar back and got another dollar ticket, figuring that the entertainment value of getting the 2nd one was worth it, and hey, I got my dollar back.

I scratched it off and won ANOTHER $2. Now I should have stopped here, but I figured I’d go back ,get a dollar, and get another dollar ticket. I did, and somehow got ANOTHER $2 ticket.

At this point not only had I got my original dollar back, but I was ahead, and the entertainment value was pretty much done, since I realized there was no way in heck I was going to keep winning so I kept the money and went home.

Other than that, I don’t see how playing all these lotteries really works out for anyone. Even a slot machine pays better on average (but still has the advantage)
