When you fell asleep Tuesday night, you were planning on what you would buy first with your Mega-Millions winnings.

You were so optimistic buying your ticket, and maybe even thought you had a better chance because you were in some big lotto pool.

Yup, you knew that when you woke up this morning, you'd walk into work and be like

Then you woke up to find out that you only matched one number, and it wasn't even the Mega ball! To make things worse, some bumpkin in South Carolina won the whole effing jackpot!

Now you have to walk into work and pretend like you weren't about to tell everyone what you really think of them if you did win.

Don't be so down though, you really are not any worse off than you were on Monday. In fact there are plenty of things that you won't have to deal because you didn't win.

  • No calls from "relatives" asking for money
  • No painful decision about taking the lump sum or huge monthly payments
  • No fear of the "Lottery Curse" striking you down
  • No carefree living with whatever you want at the tip of your fingers
  • Sorry that last one snuck in there somehow

What I'm trying to say is that you can use today to dedicate yourself to building a lifetime of wealth . . . one painful brick at a time.

OR . . .

You could play the Powerball tonight! The jackpot is almost $700 Million!

Just think about all the things you could do with that kind of money. You could walk into work Thursday morning and let everyone know what you really think of them!
