What would be the one great life changing even you would want to happen to you today? Winning the Lottery, having a baby, buying your own home?? What would that be for you, and why would you want that one thing? I think for me, I would want to be able to walk into the house of my dreams and buy for it right then and there. No mortgage, just own it out right. That would be an amazing life changing event that i really look forward to happening one day soon.. How about you

Yeah, that is a very good dream to have. And one that I too would one day be able to have. But I would want to be able to not just buy a house outright with cash, I want to be able to walk into a car showroom to do the same as well. No need Ferraris or Porches. Just the regular car one would own to use for daily commute will be good enough. And also to be able to walk into any restaurant and eat my heart's out without having to worry about the bill or anything. In other words, the life changing moment in my life, would be the day I can be financially free! No worries about money at all!

Me too, i really want to own a big house with a garden. So i am dreaming of winning in a lottery to be able to buy my dream house. Being an ordinary employee would not make this dream come true. I own a condo unit but it is not what i dreamt of.

it may not be the home you wanted, but you are a home owner and you should be very grateful for that. that's how you get the things you want, by being grateful for the things you have.

Winning the lottery, surely for me!!!LOL Though I’ve never participated in any lottery as I don’t believe anybody wins them legally, I would love to win money suddenly and in sufficient amount to enable me to give up working. Oh I so dislike coming to office everyday…if only I had enough money, I would give up working fulltime and look for online income from home and then I could spend all my time with my son and care better for my family *sigh*

LOL I equate lottery with gambling and in most places it is illegal and harmful for society. Here in India we have seen a spurt in lotteries mushrooming everyday where ordinary hardworking people in search of the elusive pot of gold, put their day's earning at stake only to be disappointed time and again. In fact, among all my friends, family and colleagues or whoever I've known, I've never heard of anybody winning any lottery...neither do they know of anybody who's ever won the jackpot. So that leaves me wondering if the draws really come up...and even if they do, are there predetermined winners!

I think I would want to get this weight off of me that I have put on over the last few years. I have tried and tried but it is still there. I do not like it at all. I am going to buy me a new exercise bike soon.

you need to just get up and start moving. that's the first step. trust me i know. after i had my daughter 5 years ago, i just started gaining weight more every year. then i stopped smoking and here came another 10 pounds. well i just said enough. i got up, and start just walking. then i put on a work out tape. then i got real serious and got me a really cheap membership to the gym. and now i have taken off 15 pounds. you have to stop talking and start doing. Good luck

I think we pretty would like to have the same life-changing experience of winning the lottery. It truly is life-changing in a material sense. I would so want this to happen to me one of these days. It would be such a big help in all our situations/predicaments of this experience [winning the lottery] were to happen to any of us.

For me it would be to win the lottery. I have so many things that I wanted to do in my life that winning the lottery could really make things happen. I love to spend more time with my kid and I can't do that because I have to work everyday. If i have money then I will not work anymore and maybe just put up a business of my own and I will hire people to manage the business. That way I can spend time with my family without worrying about money. I can also use the money to travel, to study culinary arts...oh it's really nice to dream hahaha.

I would want to win a gigantic lottery, hands down. That way, I could actually afford to complete my college degree and pay my debts as well. I would also use that money to start some good investment options and get myself trained to know how to make money and not lose it. I would offer money to my parents and those very close to me to help them get their lives straightened out. Money isn't EVERYTHING, but it sure does help make things easier sometimes!

I would love to be able to pay my son's college loans for him. that too would be on the top of my list to do if i won the lottery. and again like you, i would like to find a mentor who could teach me about investing my money.

I would like to win the lottery so I could pay of all my bills and help family members and still have enough to not have to worry about money again. If I won the lottery my husband could quit work because the job he has is very hard on him and he ache ever night that he gets home. He can not quit and fine another job in this economy so he just keeps working even though he hurts alot.

Well...I don't want any kids. I already have my own home (which I am still working to pay for). I have a lot of the other things that most guys could ask for already as well, so I guess mine would have to be winning the lottery, which would enable me to pay off what I still owe money on. However, there is one other thing in life that would be even better for me, and would probably make me MUCH happier than winning the lottery would. I have a physical handicap that limits the types of work I can do, and it makes it hard for me to get around sometimes. It has also contributed to the back problems that I have had for several years now. So...I guess the best thing I could wish for would be if I could get rid of this handicap and the back pain from the back injuries that my handicap helped create. It would be really great if I could wake up every morning and get out of bed without hurting, then walk around every day without being in pain. Getting rid of the handicap would also make it easier to provide for my family, because it would enable me to look for a wider variety of work.

Hello! You have a nice dream, I would like to do the same- walking into my own house and decorating it...buying this and that ;) :) :) However, I like that winning a lottery thing more... Then I would have that moment to think where to spend that money or where to invest...and I think that would be a great moment!!! I would buy a house, a car...and I would buy some good gifts to my closest people and people I love! I would still go to work but then I would just do it for my pleasure not for money anymore that would be a great life :) !!! Have a nice day and I wish your dreams come true!!!
