IF I WON THE LOTTERY, I
WOULDN'T NEED TO JOB SEARCH!

win lotteries in a year's time. We all
know the numbers are small.
But what if you won a lottery with oodles
of money at your disposal. What would
A lot of people immediately say: "They
would quit their jobs". Others say: "They
would travel". Some say: "I'd pay off
my debts" A few say: "I'd help the world
reduce its problems of disease, poverty,
etc." It's possible for others to say: "I'd
help my relatives".
Whatever the reasons for using lottery
money, these are the reasons you need to
use to job search, regardless of what financial
state you find yourself in.
Try it this way. As you make mental plans
about how to spend your imaginary lottery
winnings, look at your choices. They are
your life values. Don't discount them!
Whether you have won the lottery or
not today, do some of the things that
you ascribe to the values you believe
in. If it's in helping Uncle Joe, then
just do it!
This is a small tip to help you decide
where and how you want to use
money. Your values will always rule!
