“Words from Winners: Secrets to Success!”

Whenever you’re pursuing something, it’s never a bad idea to get advice. I know whenever I want to get something done, I like to hear words of wisdom from people who have done it before! So when you’re hoping to win the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes, doesn’t it make sense to get words from winners?

Over the past several years, we’ve collected some of the encouraging and inspiring words of wisdom from all sorts of Publishers Clearing House winners. Read on to hear their inspirational thoughts!

Annette Jenkins is someone who knows what it means to work really hard, having had 3-4 jobs her entire life! Here’s what she had to say

Annette Jenkins: “Keep the faith, because you CAN win. I keep telling my friends, keep playing. Because it DOES happen.”

Ora Gayton reminds us that it can truly happen to anyone!

Ora Gayton: “Everybody wants me to tell them how to be a Publishers Clearing House winner! I tell them it’s a mystery to me! Just keep playing. That’s all you got to do! You can’t give up … you got to keep on going!”

Diane Jehanian wonders if she’ll even win again (will lighting strike twice?), and she also offers advice for anyone who hasn’t yet won:

“Yes it can [lightning can strike twice]. After all, it did strike once! But there’s no secret to winning. Just be diligent! You’ll never win if you don’t try. You never know!”

$50,000 winner Nancy Byers-Horan’s attitude is to just have fun with it!

“If you don’t try, you’re not going to win. But keep the focus on having fun! I wasn’t expecting anything at all! I just enjoyed the games and the challenge.”

Martha Fryar has these words to say:

“Just have faith in it. Just stick with it. Send it in and think positive! I always had a feeling that I could someday win. And I guess that’s a good feeling to have. And I feel the same way now. I could actually win another one!”

Jane Bjork wants you to keep the faith!

“You never know what’s in store. But the only way you’re [going to win] is to keep doing it and hope for the best! Just have faith that somewhere, some day … it’ll work out! That’s what I did!”

Boris Clinton reminds us that consistency is key!

“You have to be in it to win it. Do a steady diet of it! Just register and open every email PCH sends to you. Just do it! It only takes a few minutes of your time. So when you see it on your phone while you’re out running an errand, just click on it and do it. You just have to be consistent!”

So there you go! Plenty of words of wisdom. I hope you found them to be inspiring!

  1. U can use your hard times in life to catapult u further than u could ever dream if you learn from them. I’ve had a lot. Now I’m obsessed with wanting so much more in life. Not there yet but I trying to find my path.

  2. I want to win the PCH 19500 prize number. I just lost my husband of 42 years. I really could use this to pay off bills, get a car, and pay for my house, and give a little away. Ty and God bless.

  3. I imagine me and my boy anywhere in this world we choose to be. ..
    The sunshine on his beautiful smile! And lots of happy happy family and friends. One thing is that I’ve messed up alot. But I sure have learned. Ifu could know what I know then.
