You’ve Never Thought About This Aspect Of Being A Millionaire

You’ve always wanted to be a millionaire. Well, join the club. But, do you really think it’s that simple? And no, we are not saying there is no chance that you could become a very rich person overnight, on the contrary, we are saying it’s highly possible, but not everybody is ready for it.

Could You Handle Being a Millionaire?

Sure, we could joke and say: “I wouldn’t have any problems spending the money, just bring it”, but that’s only partially the truth. The rest of the story has a lot to do with the fact that so many of us, as a matter a fact, most of us, have never been given the chance to manage large amounts of money, which consequently means there’s no shame in saying we wouldn’t really know how to handle it. And it also means most of us would probably freak out about it.

People in general have problems with even fathoming how much money a couple of hundred million really is, and those are the usual sums you can win on our jackpots. So if we can’t even fathom the scale, how could we expect to make something smart and useful with it?

Pay Off Debts And Buy A House – Then What?

Most commonly you’ll hear lottery winners say they’ll pay of their debts and then buy a car and/or a house. Also, most people will then mention going on a vacation or helping a relative. But that’s approximately the point in which all of those stories end. The reason behind it is exactly the aforementioned lack of the ability to scale: that’s as far as most people will be able to grasp how much money was just given to them and what their abilities suddenly are.

But, to be a millionaire (and more importantly: to stay a millionaire) you’ll have to be able to do some adjustments in your life. First of all, don’t be surprised if big money scares you. According to many lotto stories, that feeling isn’t at all unexpected. Often you’ll hear people confusing it with being overwhelmed, but don’t be alarmed if you feel pure fear. Fear of the unknown, of what might happen, of losing it all, even if it is just a fear of change. It’s all completely normal.

On the other hand, don’t let that fear paralyze you, or even worse, be the reason for your bad decisions. So once you’ve realized you’ve become a millionaire, and once you’ve realized you are actually scared of the possibilities and opportunities suddenly facing you, it’s time you look for some help.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

Depending on the amount you’ve won, you’ll need to hire a financial adviser. If we are talking millions, you’ll need someone who’ll teach you how to invest and how to handle your money. There are people out there whose expertise is to make even more money for millionaires such as your future self. So don’t hesitate to pay someone to ensure you enjoy your lotto winnings for decades to come. You don’t want to become one of those stories about winners who blew their winnings up by not making smart decisions.

To reiterate: although it might seem paradoxical, it’s not easy being a millionaire. But, if you are prepared for the array of emotions and are ready to ask for some help, you’ll be good. The only thing left to do now is to prove you really are ready and play today!

How to Find Your Lucky Numbers

We are not into numerology and we are definitely not your average shady Google ad about finding instant luck, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have some great tips and tricks on how to choose your lucky numbers for the lottery of your choice. And when we dive a bit deeper, you’ll soon realize luck doesn’t have much to do with your lucky numbers.

There Is No Luck In Lucky Numbers

First of all, let’s debunk some popular myths. You can often hear avid lotto players advocating for always sticking to one set of numbers, but is that substantial? According to Richard Lustig, an author of a book called “Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning Lottery” and also a seven-time jackpot winner, that is exactly what you should do. In fact, he advises strongly against changing your numbers at any point, but rather sticking to the same combination until it wins you some money.

Of course, you shouldn’t base your decisions solely on a guy trying to sell his story, but he DID win seven times (in a span of 17 years, with around a million dollars in winnings altogether) and some of his advice seems reasonable. He also advises you to stay away from birthdays, which is another great tip, especially when it comes to lotteries that have a number pool larger than 1-31. By choosing birthdays you are unnecessarily limiting yourself and lowering your chances of winning.

Statistics May Be Boring, But It’s Efficient

Also, if you are an average person (as most of us are), you’ve probably picked number 7 more than once when playing the lottery. But, there is no statistical proof that number 7 is one of the lucky numbers, and, on top of that, you really want to avoid it – even if it won you something, you’d probably have to share it with so many people the prize would become insignificant.

On the other hand, although you’ve never probably thought about it, the somewhat “lucky numbers” do exist, if you want to call them that. They are, in fact, the most frequently drawn numbers, which can be found on the internet for many different lotteries.

The Best Numbers For Mega Millions

For instance, when it comes to Mega Millions, numbers 10, 31, 14, 62 and 4 are the most often drawn among the first five numbers. Number 10 drawn 37 times or in a 10,34% (percent) of draws since October 31, 2017, while number 4 was drawn 33 times or in 9,22% (percent) since the same date. For Mega Ball, the most often drawn number is 22, which has been drawn 21 times, or in 5,87% (percent) of drawings. Number 11 is just behind it with 20 times drawn or 5,59% (percent) of drawings.

Naturally, Mega Millions isn’t the only lottery you can draw statistics for, and, of course, you don’t have to choose the first five most common numbers from that list. Instead, take in all of this advice to create your own set of lucky numbers and when you do, remember to stick with them. Don’t limit yourself, do your research, go with your intuition (or numerology even, if that’s your thing), but whatever you choose, don’t change it. Now that you finally know how to do the crucial step for any lottery, try your lucky numbers out and play today!
