What would you do with that kind of money? It was the subject of much conversation as people talked about how their lives would change if only…
…my financial situation wasn’t holding me back
…I could buy whatever I want
…I was rich
…I’d be popular
…I’d be famous
…I’d have everything I ever wanted and more
Millions of people mentally escaped their everyday lives, if only for a short time. They could see themselves getting out of the drudgery, leaving a life of turmoil and stress behind, and living out their dream.
And it’s a positive thing. Many people just assume that tomorrow will be no better than today. To change that, you must first see a brighter future for yourself.
Unfortunately, the masses stop there. But you aren’t part of the crowd. You’re a BIGG goal-getter. You’re a winner.
So you will take charge to create your dream life. You are the entrepreneur of a very important enterprise – your life.
Today, we want to talk about an option you may not realize you have – you can sponsor your own lottery.
Let’s talk about the differences between state-sponsored lotteries and your lottery. For simplification, we’ll just refer to state-sponsored lotteries as “the lottery.”
Fantasies versus reality
The lottery deals in fantasies. As we said earlier, millions of people were thinking about what they would do if they won.
As an entrepreneur, your lottery deals with reality. You help people solve their most pressing problems.
Luck versus a guarantee
The lottery is based on luck. People pay money for the remote chance of winning.
As an entrepreneur, your lottery guarantees that the fortunate people you serve will win. All they have to do is accept the solutions you offer.
No value to most versus value to all
The odds of winning this lottery were about 1 in 176 million. The lottery offers no value to most of the people who play.
They give up their hard-earned money for what turns out to be a worthless piece of paper.
As an entrepreneur, you know that you have to add value in the lives of others to create value for yourself.
You provide the right solution for a small price. So with your lottery, everyone wins!
State-sponsored lotteries capitalize the fantasies of the multitude to reward the few.
As an entrepreneur, you do the exact opposite. Entrepreneurs invest to make everyone’s dream come true. That’s BIGG Success!
What differences do you see between lotteries and what entrepreneurs do?
