On Facebook, through Twitter and even on LinkedIn I’ve been getting direct messages from friends and colleagues asking me if I’ve won the lottery. The quick answer is ‘no – we did not win the lottery.’
Ironically, however, for the past 10 years if someone asked us what we’d do if we did win the lottery, our answer was always the same:
We’d buy a yacht and sail around the world!
The video below goes though the events that led up to making our decision to sell up and sail around the world. The main message is that sometimes we need to ask ourselves, 1. What would I do if I won the lottery and 2. Is there any way I can actually do that now…without willing the lottery?
No – we did not win the lottery!
What have you always wanted to do if you won the lottery? What would you do aside from purchasing a big house, a flash car and taking some amazing vacations? If you went beyond the standard material dreams that we all have, how would you want to spend your time going forward?
