Gambling on You

  • What’s really odd is that people play the lottery expecting to win – they even bet money on it.
  • The odds are always against them.
  • Yet we find it difficult to bet on ourselves where we often expect to lose.
  • Betting on you is more of a sure-thing than buying lottery tickets.
  • The payoff is greater when we expect ourselves to succeed the way we believe we’re going to hit the lottery.
  • And it’s cheaper.
  • If you can believe your odds-against lottery bet every time you buy a ticket, you can believe in yourself every time you need confidence.
