Do you win prizes when you enter raffles, drawings or contests?
A few years back, there was a drawing for a Wii for everyone who participated in this professional development class. My coworker won. She didn’t seem as thrilled as I expected at winning.
I thought perhaps she didn’t like the Wii as a gift, but she said no, she was excited about that. She just wasn’t over the top about winning itself because she “wins stuff all the time”. She had just won plane tickets a few weeks before. They were random drawings.
I was reading a book called “Living a Charmed Life” and one chapter was about acknowledging your hidden strengths or talents. One woman had the hidden talent of winning things in drawings. She won enough to expect it to happen—and in times of need, she’d expect to win a few drawings or raffles. And she did.
I thought this was weird. I thought statistically, people all had the same chance of winning, and most of our chances hadn’t come up yet. But there seem to be people out there who just win and take it for granted.
So anyone out there one of those people?
Most people I know say that they never win anything.
