Top 5 Ways To “Increase Your Luck” — Magic or Motivation!

The luck of the draw is an important factor in winning sweepstakes where winners are randomly selected, but some say luck isn’t all magic — because you have to be in it to win it. Here are tips on staying motivated to enter sweepstakes so you’ll maximize your chances of winning.

Hey there!

Have you ever fantasized about having magical powers to make all your wishes come true? Have you ever gone searching for the leprechaun at the end of a rainbow? Although these ideas may seem childish, we think them because of the simple fact that we want to be lucky, and we’re willing to do almost anything to achieve it.

As some of you may know, we have just awarded a $1,000,000 SuperPrize to Connie Kiesser from Mountain Home, ID. While this is a very exciting and special time for our newest winner, a lot of you may be feeling “down in the dumps” after finding out that you weren’t the one to receive a Big Check. Some may say the winner was “lucky”, but did you know that some people feel you can maximize your chances of hitting it “lucky” and feel “luckier” if you’re relaxed and confident?

If you want to really “increase your luck”, (and I don’t mean by hoping for a magic genie), listen up to our Top 5 recommendations!

1) Prepare!

There’s an ancient saying by Roman philosopher Seneca that goes, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity“. When it comes to winning the sweepstakes with Publishers Clearing House, you can prepare for winning glory by entering in as many ways and as often as you can! If you know you’ve prepared to the best of your ability, you will likely feel more confident about achieving your goal (like becoming the next PCH millionaire!)

2) Relax!

It has been said that stress and anxiety are luck’s worst enemies. If you are too worried about what negative things could happen, you leave no room to think about positive things. For all the fans who are upset their winning moment hasn’t come yet, don’t worry! If you’re too focused on something that’s in the past, you will be distracted from all the exciting new opportunities that stand in your future!

3) Try Something New!

In life, we often like to stick with what we know and what we’re comfortable with. But why not try breaking out of the box? If you want results, perhaps you should try something you’ve never done. When it comes to the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, if you haven’t won entering a certain way, why not try entering a different way? Remember, you can enter at PCHSearch&Win, PCHGames, PCHLotto, and PCHBingo in addition to! You’ll really maximize your chances of winning by entering in as many ways as possible.

4) Be Positive!

It is only normal to experience the feeling of defeat when you don’t get the results you want. With that said, it is important to remember that great things take time! It is very easy to just give up after coming up short a few times, but if you do, you’ll never know what the future holds! Even if you didn’t get a knock on your door from the Prize Patrol this time, who knows about next time. Be positive, and your PCH dreams could come true!

5) Visualize Success!

If you can see it, you can do it! It is very important when trying to achieve a goal that you take the time to see yourself achieving that goal. This all goes back to being positive. If you never picture yourself coming out on top, you are leaving room for negativity in your mind. If you stay positive, luck could come to you.

There you have it, PCH Fans. Try using these top 5 tips — prepare, relax, try something new, be positive, and visualize success — and who knows… maybe you’ll end up being our next PCH Millionaire!

Best Of Luck!

    Be safe on the road, in the air & about town & or city!
    Reading my Bible yesterday, I was led to Psalms 37. So encouraged by Gods promises to us on His desire for our ‘financial deliverance.’
    Beautiful commentary followed.
    Feeling blessed to have the opportunity to ‘enter PCH Sweeps online!’
    And, to think: The Winning is FREE! Just can’t beat that!

    I would like to thank my 4 brothers and 5 sisters that have given me support throughout the years when I needed it. And my mom and step mom, too. And finally, most of all, my loving husband Tim.

    I am happy to know that someone so close to home won the PCH February 28, 2014 winnings. I continue to play in hopes to win. I would, when I win, get the best medical treatment ever to my family. Their illness: brother has cancer, sister needs a liver transplant, three sisters need bone repaired/therapy, one son has kidney transplant, one son needs diabetic treatment, parents require home repairs for mobility and health live in care providers and I need a greatful heart for being their guardian angle.

    To help my family would be rewarding sufficient to make me happy and keep me smiling.

    I pray and implore to God to listen to my prayers.
