Invest in Yourself

Powerball Mania

The clock is ticking.  You’ve got one more day to get your tickets and collect your lucky charms before you watch that glorified leaf blower spit out the rubber balls that will seal your fate.  Are you feeling lucky?



Let’s pretend for a minute that you are the winning ticket holder.  No harm in that, right?  What would you do with the money?   Would you be conservative even if you didn’t need to be?  Would you be charitable?  Would you quit your job?  Would you move to a new house or different location?

I asked my daughter what she’d do if we won the lottery (which is unlikely as I haven’t bought any tickets 😉 and she said she’d continue to pursue her current plan (she wants to be a cosmetologist), but use the money to educate herself even further and start her own salon.  Whether or not that is actually how that scenario would play out is completely uncertain, but as I was considering the same thing myself (what I would do), I started taking a few notes.  Heck, you know me.  I can’t just take a few notes.  I wrote up an entire plan. It was lovely to realize that my plan, if I had a billion dollars, is very parallel to my plan with…significantly less than a billion dollars.  Either way, I am sticking to my plan, but the extra money would certainly allow that plan to be accelerated and pursued on a larger scale.



Think about what you’d do.  Aside from the family and friends you’d share it with (because of course we’d all share, right?) Do you have a list of dreams you’d follow?  Think about that list.  Even write it out.  Take a look at it.  Is there anything you could pursue without winning the lottery?  Can you dive in and invest time and a more modest plan that would help you reach the same end goal?  This is a great way to discover if you’ve really found your passion.  It’s kind of like answering that question: What would you do if you could not fail?  Only in this scenario, it’s what would you do if you had unlimited resources.

All “lifelong goals” aside?  Just for fun: What would your first huge purchase be?  Needs some inspiration?  Check out these big ticket items that are for sale and up for grabs to the next big Powerball winner:

The Playboy Mansion

In case you haven’t heard, it’s for sale at the bargain price of $200,000,000.  Added bonus, you won’t be lonely because this fancy pad comes with a roomie.  The lucky buyer of the estate must comply with one quid pro quo.  Mr. Heffner will continue to reside in the property for the rest of his life, with you.

The Fastest Car in the World



With all that extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, you can burn rubber trying to spend it.  This Bugatti will set you back $3.4 million dollars (pennies in a bucket for you) and you can feel the wind in your hair at a whipping 254 MPH.

A Huge Diamond



Start doing your wrist curls now.  You’ll be needing all of your strength to sport this 12 carat diamond.  You’ll also need to call the current owner and your fellow billionaire friend as he just paid a whopping $48.4 million to purchase this blue diamond for his 7 year old daughter.

Here is the Blue Diamond I got when I was 7:
