Each New Year gives us a chance to wipe the slate clean and start a whole year fresh. In 2008, why not make a deliberate effort to improve your luck with a winning image of yourself? If you put your mind to it, you can make positive changes that will last a lifetime.
Many people do not make New Year’s resolutions because they think they will break them. Yet, it doesn’t hurt to make a few anyway. Even without them, it’s a good time to take stock of yourself and think about changes you would like to make.
Set short and long term goals for yourself. Think about what you want to accomplish in 2008 as well as the next two, three or five years — or even further out. It’s always good to have a plan, an attainable goal just slightly out of reach. And, of course, you should also have long-term wishes and dreams that you hope one day will become reality. People who do not map out a life and plan at least the direction they want it to take, usually drift aimlessly or get stuck in a rut.
Find a quiet spot where you can be alone for several minutes. Bring a pen and pad of paper with you. Relax your mind by taking three long deep breaths. Close your eyes. Breathe in slowly through your nose until your lungs are full, hold it for a few moments, then release the air very slowly though your lips. Do this slowly three times.
Now that your mind is clear and relaxed, ask yourself how the ideal, disciplined you would live your life. As the thoughts come tumbling out, write them down. Do not judge, question or censor thoughts as they come to you. Do not write complete sentences now. Just capture the thoughts on paper. You can organize them neatly later.
Ask your inner self where you want to be a year from now, five years from now, ten years from now. Then wait quietly for the answers. Only YOU can make changes happen in your life.
Let your mind examine all areas of your life – your heath, your self-image, your work, your relationships with others, etc. Concentrate on one specific area at a time. Write down the thoughts as they come to you. Later when you read your notes, you will be amazed at the inspired thoughts you received from your inner conscious levels. Do this as often as you want. You will get better each time you do it.
Do not be afraid to dream big dreams — let your mind soar. Plan, step by step, how you could go about achieving that goal. Then put one foot in front of the other on the path toward making your dream become a reality. You will be amazed what you can accomplish!
You must believe in yourself. Know that you can do anything you set your mind to. Do not listen to others who tell you it cannot be done. And do not look for approval from others. Give yourself credit for each small success along the path to your goal. You must earn your own self-respect — which is a reflection of your self-esteem. The more you do, the more you will be able to do.
Once your subconscious knows you are a winner, there will be no limits to what you are capable of accomplishing. The two most important ingredients are a strong emotional desire for the goal and a willingness to work hard to make your goal a reality. You can apply this to everything in life: your work, your love life, your relations with friends and family, your health, even to games of chance.
It’s comforting to think that to win the lottery all you need is a buck and a little bit of luck. However, that happens only to one in millions. Those who consistently win prizes, invest time and effort in selecting their lottery numbers.
I want the very best for my readers, mentally, physically, spiritually as well as materially. It certainly helps to focus your desires. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Many of my lotto winners “knew” in their hearts, without a doubt, that they were going to win the lottery jackpot. They had unwavering faith that with my lotto systems it was going to happen, and, for them, it did!
Mitch Drummond was so sure he was going to win a jackpot with my lottery systems that he consulted tax and financial advisors to be prepared when he finally struck it rich. Mitch wrote to me: “Dear Gail, I knew that your system would work. I just had to give it time. Gail, I had so much confidence in your system that I terminated military service after 14.9 years. It was only 5.3 till retirement. I did not have a job lined up. But 45 minutes before the balls were drawn I selected the numbers, placed them in the [lotto] wheel and got them to the store. Forty-five minutes later, I was practically a half-million dollars richer.” Read the newspaper article about Mitch Drummond at http://smartluck.com/slideshow/ss10.htm.
Will and Juanita Richey combined my system with their own positive mental attitudes to win a Michigan Lotto jackpot of $1,190,932. Juanita said, “I made a decision to win the Michigan Lotto within a short period of time. We started planning as if we had already won it. Once we got Gail Howard’s book, I realized that it was the way we were going to do it. We were totally committed to winning that jackpot, and it happened.” Read the complete story about the Richey’s at http://smartluck.com/slideshow/ss50.htm/
The faith of those two lottery jackpot winners was unwavering, and it worked for them. If you really want to win a big lottery prize, let that be one of your goals for 2008. Make this your year to become a deliriously happy lottery winner. I wish you a happy, healthy and lotto-jackpot-winning New Year, Gail Howard.
