Congratulations! You Are A Daily Lottery Winner!

Most weekdays, I find myself travelling the PATH system – a labyrinth of underground tunnels linking the tall office buildings in downtown Toronto that not only provide a pleasant shopping experience but also afford the advantage of avoiding traffic lights and sidewalk congestion as well as the climatic elements be it the heat or cold, rain or sunshine, sleet or snow. I will occasionally sit in a branch of a famous Canadian coffee chain and watch the people either moving by quickly or slowly. Some are alone while others are engaged in conversation. It seems that there is a small kiosk selling lottery tickets under every office tower amongst the many stores, coffee shops and restaurants. When there is a large jackpot to be won, people will stand patiently waiting in long lines and clutching pieces of paper with their carefully selected numbers. You can almost hear them dreaming aloud of what they would do with the money – the freedom to do what they want when they want to, the chance to live in a spacious home and drive an expensive vehicle, the opportunity to travel to far off places in luxury and the vision of living a long, healthy, happy and stress-free life without their current problems and challenges. Many of the people who I see waiting in these long lines look like they have a lot of abundance in their lives. They are well groomed and stylishly dressed often with expensive accessories.

When I hear that there was no winning number for the lottery jackpot, I wonder how these people react to this news. Some occasional or first-time players will choose to not play again while other regular players will choose to return to the kiosk to try their luck again.

As a motivational life and business coach, I work with people who want to make lasting changes in their personal or professional lives whether they are business owners, full-time employees or individuals in transition and between opportunities who are looking for meaningful and fulfilling work. I believe that you are a professional daily lottery winner if you are a business owner with a growing, profitable and successful business that offers a product or service that you are proud of and customers who are eager to do business with you; if you are a full-time employee who works for a profitable and successful organization where you earn a generous salary plus physical, mental and emotional health benefits like medical and dental coverage, several weeks of vacation and subsidized education and other employee specific perks that may be related to the organization’s products or services or if you are in some form of professional transition and people are taking your calls, answering your e-mails and meeting with you in a timely way. You are a personal daily lottery winner if you wake up in the morning and spend your day feeling physically healthy and strong; if you have opportunities to learn and grow intellectually and if you have family, friends and colleagues who sustain, support and strengthen you. If there is platonic or romantic love in your life, you feel loved and you have people to love then you are a daily lottery winner. If you are living a life of acceptance, abundance and accomplishment then you are a daily lottery winner. If you can say that most of the time you feel happy, grateful and fortunate then you are a daily lottery winner.

This is in no way meant to discourage you from dreaming or buying lottery tickets. Rather, it is meant to encourage you to realize that you are already a daily personal and professional lottery winner. Congratulations!
