Have to be in it to Win it
1 in 302,575,350…
The odds weren’t in my favor
But Tuesday night, I was a player.
I bought a mega millions ticket
Secretly thinking I just might hit it.
Alas, I’m not rolling in the green;
But, the drawing has left me pondering…
Knowing the odds, why do we play the lottery
Yet not take other opportunities we deem too “risky”?
I don’t speak up, give it a shot, or put myself out there.
The odds of failure seemingly too great to bare.
Waiting until I “have it all together”
Then I’ll take on that tough endeavor.
I hold myself back too often, it’s true.
Perhaps, you find yourself doing it too?
If so, maybe it’s time we take a chance and say yes!
With a can do attitude, embracing the process.
We might hit the jackpot or maybe not
Regardless, at least we’ll know we gave it a shot!
Who knows the results - win, lose, or draw
Sometimes just taking the chance is the biggest win of all. 💰
