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.

Danielle Lucky

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 pch.com! 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!

hope shall come!? said...

I motivate myself in all positive ways…..I set aside my true flaws and try to visualize my life as a meaning and a sign that GOD did not give up on me ,that he gave me a chance at life for a reason with all my disabilities I have.i gave birth to a sweet little boy when the doctors said it was impossible for me to have children.i gave up a couple of times at life and wanted to end it for myself,but I gained true strength to go on,when I looked into my childs eyes at birth I felt ashamed of myself to think that I almost lost out on life with him,this child saved my life,i did not know he was to exist til doctors revived me….I felt helpless and not of meaning to life until I was told that I was going to be someone’s mother.only then I made a promise I would never think less of myself or life and promised I would keep trying to live for not just me but the life I brought here,it is hard to find hope and help in the place I live.i pray each day there is a way to knock upon the door of opportunity and it will answer me by opening its doors to me to better survive and move on further to meet my other goals and fulfill our dreams of owning our own home and property.i dream daily of the date of my renewal of life not too much of a change but I financial upgrade to take care to our needs better and make amends to life and be forgiven for my almost tragic fate.i give meaning in detail because I have a meaning to go for this as to live not just in it to win it,THANK YOU! Christa.P. for this post. cause hope was to almost run dry in my heart with entering cause at most times it still feel fake,cause it is too much scams going on and too many people being spiteful and dishonest going in computers while some of us honestly are trying for a positive difference that is much needed for the help of making it in our future some of us don’t have anyone or anywhere to turn too for help or if there will be….

BEING POSITIVE AND VISUALIZING YOUR SUCCESS!! IF YOU DO NOT DO THAT, YOU LEAVE ROOM FOR TOO MUCH NEGATIVITY TO ENTER YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR AURA AND YOU WILL THEN HAVE A SENSE OF DOUBT AND THAT IS “NEGATIVE THOUGHTS” SO JUST STAY POSITIVE AND VISUALIZE YOURSELF WINNING ALREADY AND FEEL THAT FEELING YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WON!! AND YOU WILL HAVE GOOD LUCK ON YOUR SIDE TO WIN!!

I APPRECIATE THE 5-WAY PROGRAM.
IT WILL RESTART CREATING SPIRITS IN PARTICIPANTS TO PRODUCE GOOD ENTRIES IN THE SEARCH SPACES.
I WANT TO PUT A GOOD, NEW, AND APPLICABLE ENTRY TO PARTICIPATE. GREAT TALENTED PERSONS ARE PRESENT ARE PRESENT IN THIS WORLD, NO WORRY IF ANY OTHER GETS PRIZE. BUT WHAT ENTRIES THE OTHER PEOPLE WRITE SHOULD BE SEEN BY EVERY ONE TO BE GET BENIFITED FROM THE THOUGHTS OF THIER BRAIN AND VALUE OF THE ENTRY.
THANKS GREAT.

I AGREE 100% WITH THE FIVE WAYS MENTIONED. NEGATIVE FOLKS CLAIM THAT THEY’LL BELIEVE IT WHEN THEY SEE IT. POSITIVE FOLKS SEE IT & BELIEVE IT NO MATTER WHAT! PERSONALLY, I BELIEVE THAT “LUCK” IS GOD’S WAY OF GIVING US THE LIFE HE HAS PLANNED FOR US. IN THE MATERIAL REALM, I CURRENTLY HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT MY LIFE WILL IMPROVE. HOWEVER, I KNOW I HAVE MORE TO OFFER THIS WORLD & I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT GOD WILL CREATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES NEEDED TO USE MY QUALITIES FOR GOOD. THE MOST IMPORTANT CHAPTER OF MY LIFE IS YET TO COME.

Angelika Butz said...

Hi Christa you forgot to mention several more PCH sites that allow you to enter the sweepstakes for accounts for up to 51 entries per day give or take changes not including being able to enter same sweepstake on a different site for more chances. But alas all I have won are several $5 Amazon gift cards, yuppy, yip, yip what a waste for me as I am on a very limited retirement income and there is nothing for $5 so sayonara to these $5 since I never used one but one time I did get A $20 Amazon gf and bought a much needed book.
Anyways I am a little bit lucky sometimes and I figure since I do not have to pay to play I might as well enter everything I can find on PCH because one day fate is going to go my way and no God has absolutely nothing to do with this so, fanatics don’t get your panties all twisted in a knot.
Am I disappointed? a little, but life is what you make of it and I may have no money but I have an absolutely satisfying and wonderful life.
However I do wish that PCH would have a Winners list for the redeemed tokens or at least send out emails that lets you know that somebody else won the 3 items you spend 10 ml tokens on. Aarrrghh! Foiled again.
