As you are probably aware, the drawing for the Powerball tonight has reached a staggering $1.5 BILLION. Many are rushing to the nearest supermarket or gas station to take part in this epic event. A single-winner jackpot has NEVER been this high, and one person or multiple people could have their lives completely changed by tomorrow morning.
No, this post is not about winning tonight’s Powerball jackpot. No, I am not going to tell you how to win the lottery in this post because there is no way anyone can tell you how to win. Your chances of winning the biggest jackpot ever are 1 in 292 million, the more tickets you buy, the better your odds, but I’ll break it to you. You’re not going to win. Sorry.
Despite the fact that you won’t win the lottery, you do control your own destiny to create a great amount of financial wealth for yourself. Take the following example. By opening a Vanguard or Fidelity account with just $1000 and contributing $500 per month to the account every month, you can have well over a million dollars to your name after 40 years.
Winning the lottery and creating wealth are both results of math. The math tells you your odds of winning the lottery are near impossible. Math also tells you that following a simple plan can make you a millionaire. Choose what math you want to follow.
