We all have dreams and aspirations of winning a vast amount of money on online bingo or the lottery, and yes it could be you next time who wins big!!! You can’t win big if you don’t play (simple logic). We know we will feel over the moon and euphoric at the realisation that we “cracked it” but on the other hand emotionally we may be all over the place. To go from worrying about how you will survive the month until the next pay cheque to (that isn’t a problem anymore) is an amazing stroke of luck and an incredible relief. Having money in the bank to cover your expenses for all that life throws at you, like paying the mortgage, repairing your not so new car, saving for a well earned holiday you haven’t had in years should make life a lot more comfortable and bearable. We all want to win big, but it’s important to handle it in the right way.
So how do you, or more to the point, how should you deal with your windfall. You are shocked, stunned and overwhelmed. Do you want to shout it out from the rooftops that you have won a fortune? Do you want your identity revealed and your face splashed all over the tabloids? or would you prefer to protect your and
your family’s identity and remain anonymous? If you become a bit of a local celebrity then there will be “hangers-on” and begging letters for sure and people telling you how you SHOULD be spending your cash, how annoying!!!
Maybe it’s wise not to say anything until you actually have the money in hand. Give yourself time to adjust to your new found status. There are lots of things money can’t buy, wisdom and common sense are two of them. So it’s imperative that you seek out good advice from a lawyer and an experienced financial advisor. They will help you protect your new found assets and avoid you from falling into any pitfalls. They are trained in this field and are savvy to what you are not.
Being sensible is top priority. Winning can change your life but it doesn’t have to change your lifestyle you might not have to work again but if you enjoy your job and all that it entails you don’t have to give it up. Give yourself time to evaluate the situation. Whatever makes you happy is the main consideration. Most big winners go on a luxury holiday, time to reflect, exchange they’re old banger for a posh motor, move to an up-market property and invest the rest. That sounds good to me! The investments are for your future, money makes money
and you want your money to last a lifetime. Not just for a few years of amazing excesses.
How would you react if you were to win big?
So motto…don’t act in haste and repent at your leisure. Enjoy your winnings and most of all be happy and stress free. Money can buy you travel to new and exciting places, peace of mind from those pesky bills and comfort, be it a new car or home and not forgetting fine dining…So hope to see you soon Heston Blumenthal!!!
