I’m always amazed when I go to my local convenience store and see the line of people waiting to buy lottery tickets. I’m not comfortable making judgements about people but most of these people don’t seem to me to be rich. They seem like hard-working people who probably don’t have a lot of money, dreaming they will one day be rich. Ok not a great revaluation there but my point is rich people don’t buy lottery tickets. Maybe if you wanna be like somebody you should start by acting like them. Save your money and invest it in something you believe in. The richest people I know spend the least amount of money. Yet the poorest people I know spend money like crazy. Eating out all the time, smoking cigarettes, buying expensive prepackaged processed food, buying lottery tickets. Doesn’t it make sense that if you spend less you’ll have more. Trust me your not gonna be the next lottery millionaire. In your whole life have you ever met a lottery millionaire? I guess the only good thing about the lottery in my state of Virginia is all of the lottery profits go to schools. About 436 million a year, sounds like a lot until you hear the total state school budget for the year is 5.5 billion. Politicians always say people can spend their own money better than government but they are strangely silent on the lottery issue.
