Fortune, Dream and Takarakuji

Each time I passed the lottery stall, I thought of buying a takarakuji ticket and winning it. Can you imagine winning the lottery worth hundred millions yen? What you are going to do with that money? How you are going to spend the money?

Sometimes, it is so hard to understand why some people in Japan spend ludicrous sum of money on takarakuji just to improve their odds. It is all about fortune. If you are fortunate enough then you just need to buy one ticket to win it.

I once read about the Law of Attraction, it states that you get what you think about and your thoughts determine your destiny or you manifest your own reality. This law doesn’t fit for lottery fans – millions people buying the ticket and there is only one ultimate winner. So no matter how hard you think about winning the lottery, only the most fortunate person who will win it.

I think the reason those people spend much money on takarakuji is just to improve their dreaming quality. Once you buy a lottery ticket then you have a valid reason to dream about spending hundred millions yen! Yes, everyday until they announce the real winner. Well, I guess it is not a bad idea to have a nice fantasy, imagination and dream
as very fortunate and rich person especially when we are having a bad time.

Buy one ticket! Who knows you can buy this car?? You never know....
