Winning a Live Draw : A Blessing or A Curse?
Winning in sweepstakes is every Singaporean’s desire, but sad to say, not all know how to deal the sudden jackpot.
It’s now the season of the year when people are again thrilled to venture on their favorite digits on their lucky stake outlets. Finally, the most awaited Singapore live draw has come, which has a jackpot prize of S$12 million. Singapore Pools are making it very exciting for the people to join the live draw since they have given them gaming packages that start at a very affordable price of S$10 and rises to a price of S$228. Not only that, their highest package will give you a grand total of 10 additional tickets.
Without any doubt, all of those who bought their tickets wants to be the millionaire winner. Winning the live draw and seeing that the money in your bank account flooded with just a blink of an eye is indeed a life-changing event in one’s 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 comparable to contributing as much as S$8 billion to beautify more resorts in Singapore.
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. In reality, history has given us pictures that it could even become your worst nightmare.
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.
In addition to this, you might not see yourself as a support but as a 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. However, the problem is that we don’t know how to properly draw the line to ensure that nothing is wasted recklessly.
This might be one of the worst troubles. Because of your wealth many bad people will come and cause any harm to you. The most dangerous part of this is knowing that those bad people are close to you and to your family.
In addition to this, through time, you might realize that you are not just losing your money but also your family, friends and people close to you. You end up losing everything you had.
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.
In conclusion, would you agree that gaining a large sum after winning the lottery is a doom? I believe not everything about it. But it could only boil down to proper handling of money and right judgement of the Lucky Man.
