I have been playing the scratch off lottery for years and have never won much, and I was always angry when I did not win. After viewing “The Secret” yesterday, and making a decision that yesterday was the first day of the turning point of my life. Today I stopped by a convenience store, and all the way there, I kept telling myself I would win. When negative thoughts entered my head, I replaced them with thoughts of winning. Well to make a long story short, I bought a $5.00 scratch off. I began scratching the numbers, and one by one they were not winners, the negative thoughts tried to come back. I pushed them out again, and again, until one spot was left, and instead of saying man I hope I win. I said to myself how much did I win. Guess what friends. I did win. I won $10.00. Although it was not a huge amount, it was still a win, and that showed me that the power is there. I plan to harness my new found powers and win over and over again.
