Dreaming of Winning it Big?

Recently, the Powerball is the topic of conversation in our home and with our friends. Everywhere you turn – from 8458626_ssocial media to the nightly news, everyone is talking about winning it big.

How about you? Are you having what if conversations with yourself about what you would do with all that money?

It is funny – for me the idea of winning the Powerball has allowed me to really dream BIG. And answer a lot of questions about what I would really do if money wasn’t an issue.

Some surprises have actually popped up too.

For instance – one big one is that I always thought I wanted to move away from my current small town. For the longest time our goal was to move south when our youngest graduated from high school. Of course with my big winnings, I would buy a house somewhere in the warmer climate for the winter months. But what really surprised me was that I don’t want to leave where I am.

I do really love it here.

What I envision instead is a house in the woods with loads of land – still here in Central PA – just a little different 🙂

The other part that I really thought about was what will I do with my time? Will I continue to work on my business? Or will I become a full time traveler? Or something else?

This also surprised me, especially with all the questions I’ve been asking about my biz – like what do I want to do when I grow up.

When you take money out of the equation – everything shifts. Things become much clearer.

What I discovered about myself is that I would continue my biz. However, I would immerse myself in the spiritual, healing and transformational side of it.


These two big moments of clarity were pretty powerful for me.

And you know what’s even funnier – is that for both of them, I can already make them happen – so actually I am already a winner…

I can stay where I am now AND I can shift my business into whatever I’m called to shift it into.

Pretty powerful, huh?

Have you been playing with the what if questions about the Powerball? If not, I encourage you to take a few moments today to really allow yourself to play with the idea of winning hundreds of millions of dollars. Notice what comes up for you and what kind of clarity you receive about what you really want in this lifetime.

And be sure to take notice too about the judgement you may have regarding receiving millions of dollars. I don’t know about you – but I’ve heard many comments about that amount of money being disgusting or too much. If you are feeling like this – notice that feeling too. And shift your focus to the amount of GOOD you can do by receiving millions of dollars.

Seriously – it is really funny and enlightening what comes up when you allow yourself to enter this space!!

Enjoy!! And good luck!!

Oh yeah – and you gotta play to win 🙂

  1. Great points Gretchen! Dreaming big may not require a winning ticket but you do have to play to win.
    We all have so much to offer the world, most of which can be implemented for a little less than 1.4 billion 😉

    1. Exactly Beth!! For me – when my dreams were feeling kinda stuck or stagnant – the possibility of winning it big opened up a whole new world for me. And yes we all have so much to offer the world for sure at any level of income. However, the good that could emerge from 1.4 billion would be amplified for whomever wins 😉 And yes you do have to play to win at any level!! Here’s to playing!!
