Winning a Live Draw : A Blessing or A Curse?
Every citizen has been dreaming of winning live draws, and instantly hold a huge money, but unfortunately don’t even know how to properly handle such a great cash.
Another time of the year has come when people in the neighborhood will once again give their fate a chance of a lifetime, going across their favorite lottery outlets. Finally, the most awaited Singapore live draw has come, which has a jackpot prize of S$12 million. For the people to have more confidence in asking theirs gods to grant them this fortune, Singapore Pools has made gaming packages that start at the a very reasonable price of S$10, and will go up to a price of S$228. The highest package will give you a grand total of 10 more tickets.
Basically, everyone wants to be the jackpot winner. Undeniably, winning a live draw and gaining a huge bulk of money in an instant is a life-transforming experience. Who would not be overwhelmed of instantly winning a huge prize in a lottery? I bet that would change your entire life. Who could imagine that your S$1 will turn out to be S$8 million? And that S$1 only adds up to the lottery’s secretive allure. As a result, we would never be surprised that Singaporeans spend close to S$8 billion a year on lottery, unconsciously. It’s as if they are contributing nearly S$8 billion yearly on resorts and establishments.
Despite of the pleasure of winning the lottery, it may not always seem be a favor that everyone have dreamt of in the entire lifetime. Sad to say, many stories have been told that winning instant cash may become your worst dream ever.
Let me share an experience of a Singaporean warehouse supervisor who enjoyed his lottery prize of S$400,000. Unfortunately, not later than 6 months, nothing left from his prize. The supervisor might have spent carelessly everything he had on fancy meals, luxurious gadgets and goods, or even spent on vacations.
Another downside of having a large sum is that your self could become your worst enemy. Innately, when we have money, we gain the freedom and opportunity to extend help to those in need, especially our loved ones, or even our own community. But yet, we may fail to set out limits on our expenses, compromising other needs that must be taken care of.
Furthermore, whenever people knew you have lots of money, this might invite bad people to surround you and you family. What could be more frustrating and dangerous than knowing that these men are people close to you.
Furthermore, do not wait to see that you are not just losing money in time, but also the love from your family and loved ones. Because of the luxurious life it might give you, temporarily, you might lose your family, forever.
Another common gesture a millionaire does is giving donations. But another disadvantage of this comes when you are only donating without saving any amount on the bank, where you can expect to grow in time.
To wrap up this reading, would you really agree that winning the lottery is not a blessing? Absolutely not. But it could only boil down to proper handling of money and right judgement of the Lucky Man.
