How To Dig Out The Dough...

I can still remember how I was an arrogant young brat, full of aspirations, who told himself that he wanted to be a self-made millionaire by age of 30. Hope levels went up, when years down the road, I get to meet real self-made millionaires. Through my conversations with them and my personal assessment, not all of them seem that smart or appear really capable to me. Thus, I pretty much concluded that they might have gotten rich from the following 2 factors... luck and perserverence. My luck, from my definition here, is doing the right thing at the right place, right time.

Some people claim to have the foresight to do the right things at the right place, right time. Those who have done it and succeeded, naturally owns the bragging rights to such abilities. Those who have failed, on the other hand, simply moved aside and nursed their wounds. Naturally, those who have not yet tried nor succeeded, wouldn't possess these rights either.

I have not tried and hence haven't succeeded. Problem is that I couldn't get my sad ass of my chair to get that million-bucks yielding business venture rolling on. So what are the chances of me getting that million bucks without working for it? There is only one way, gambling(Pro-Casino campaign here). Of cause, like what the Father of my Nation said,"Its a game that you can never win." But what other way out are there for people holding on to a fixed-salaried job, to hit that million bucks. Probability of succeeding, nil. At least, if you push that one buck into a Toto draw, you stand a very, extremely, teeny weeny chance of hitting that Jackpot. Well, people hit Toto, every weekend, why can't it be me?

While at my previous job, diddling with my fixed working hours, waiting for the pay day every month, I would think of the ways in which I could possibly hit my Million Dollar goal in 2 days time.

As I am typing this, its near meal time and my stomach is starting to growl. I will carry on no further. I shall, however, work on a posting, where I will list down a few events whereby we can make that million-buck. To mask the incorrigible gambler in me, I shall slot in a few more practical methods into that list.

Do stay tuned...

2 years ago, in the chinese new year bonus toto draw, still with my 1st bank then, discussing the next morning with my ex-colleagues on how we would spend the money if either of the 4 persons that strike were us, when one of that 4 persons walked in to deposit his cheque. =O although i always envy those that comes in with cheques from singapore pool, i was never that stunned to meet with this new millionaire. but i find god was really fair then. this poor uncle is a really poor family man. so it really made the family's life so much better. at least its not some millionaire on his/her way to become a billionaire. =P

though i met up with him and had that momentary feeling that 'one day, it can be me' but i always believe money only comes to me through hard work. *sighs* i ming ku one la. *boo*
