Be fearless with Mega Millions and win free vouchers

Have you ever really watched children play? Children are so willing to take chances and push boundaries. The fascination they express when they discover a new toy or anything new for that matter can be quite astonishing. The best thing about children is that they are constantly curious.

Children are awesome sales people
Parents all over the world will agree with me that when children want something they will stay after you until they get it. Is that being stubborn or tenacious? Think about it, good sales people are persistent until they achieve their goal.  Children will throw reason after reason after reason as to why they want a particular toy. Any objection you may have, they will definitely have a good reason to validate your objection until they persuade you to buy them the toy. Like I said children are great sales people.

Children are fearless
In a few seconds and without hesitation children will climb right to the top of the jungle gym. Children are fearless, they do things without any apprehensions – a lesson we as adults have a problem with. We tend to over-think our concerns and find problems instead of taking more chances in life.  So, if you want to increase your wealth, simply play tomorrow night’s fantastic $240 million Dollar Mega Millions! Take the chance and break boundaries today!

Children do things their way
When children play, they don’t have the benefit of years experience directing them. Without having various information that’s been collected over time they simply absorb their surroundings and information. They also absorb this information at lightning speed giving them a fresh take on things and taking their decisions up a notch. Children are never scared to try new things. Can you just imaging children seeing the red play button? In two seconds flat they would have their lucky lottery numbers in and most of them would be not only taking quickpics galore but they will be loving the Intelliplay option too.

Children learn how to be successful

Through play, children love using their imaginations and through this they learn how to solve problems and social skills. Think back to Barbie and Ken. Little girls all over the world have had Ken driving up in the new red Ferrari and Barbie hopping in beside him in the latest designer outfit.

With this week’s jaw-dropping $240 million Dollar Mega Millions jackpot, now is the time to be more adventurous, fearless, persuasive and tenacious. We can learn a lot from children; they are risk takers, persuasive, independent and successful. 

These are skills everyone needs and a reminder to use them. What are you going to do?

In my younger days I used to play marbles with my friends and what I win I used to sell. this way I used to make money to buy more marbles , play and win. This was a profitable business. Play for liesure and win money for future. This marble business helped me buy toys I liked and for sweets.

I tried to sold some very-very old newspapers at front of my grandparents house. As far as I know I wasn't made a single penny out of it. :(

Every summer as kids, me and my cousin would go diving to collect clams from the sea rocks near town. We would then sell the clams to the local restaurant and spend all the money on ice cream and funfair rides. Wonderful times!:)

We are all children inside ourselves. Just grown....recently:)

Childhood times were great, and I would like to note down few games / activities i used to play with my brothers/sisters and friends. 1. Hide & Seek : Everyone must have played this one game. Hiding and finding someone used to be very exciting at time. this game used to be challenging when played during night time, as it would be difficult to find your friends hiding in the bushes. 2. Cops & Thief : This game used to be another entertainer being a child. Two groups are required to play this game. minimum 5 people in one group. It was kind of hide seek but in this game all the cops would be looking for all the thieves and once all thieves are captured, its time for turn around.(vice versa). We used plastic guns while playing the part of cops. 3. Jump-Rope and Double Dutch: One of the biggest ways I spent my recess time.I got quite good at it for my age, both in speed and in skill. It was fun to jump by myself, but it was even more fun to have a long rope and jump with a couple of friends. That’s where jump-rope rhymes come in. 4. Marbles : The general rules specify that you draw a circle in the sand or on the sidewalk, and then take turns trying to knock each other’s marbles out of the circle with your one large marble. As with the other games, there are countless variations for marble games. 5. Simon Says: This game can be played anywhere (indoors/outdoors). One person is Simon and starts by saying, “Simon says, and any action. Everyone must then do the action. However, if Simon makes an action request without saying, “Simon says” to begin the request, anyone who does that action is out. The last person still playing in the end will be Simon for the next round. 6.Shadow Tag: In this fun version of Tag, you tag each other’s shadow with your feet instead of tagging their body. Thus, it must be played on a sunny day. The closer to noon, the greater the difficulty. 7.Blind Man’s Bluff: One of my favorite games. This game is yet another variation on tag. The person who is “it” wears a blindfold and tries to tag the other players. Be sure to play this in an area safe from obstructions and other hazards. 8.Musical Chairs: In a circle, arrange chairs facing outward to total one fewer than the number of players. An additional player needs to be in charge of the music. When the music starts, the players walk around the chairs. When the music stops, players sit down in the nearest chair as soon as they can. The one player who does not have a chair is out. One of the chairs is then removed, and the game continues in this manner. Their are many many more games we used to play during our childhood, but I think this space would not be enough. Hence would only update the above few games. Waiting to read what games others used to play and try to re-collect my childhood memories.

When I was a kid, I sold candy to children. I had a candy store at home. I still remember when children were unhappy because I rose the prices of the candy during Gulf Second War in 1991. The wanted a justification. I told them that the purchasing prices got up in the market and it had nothing to do with me. Luckily, their parents convened them that I was right and my small business continued.

Almost every child wants a pony. Give them the opportunity to ride one at fairs, carnivals, charity events and other locales.

I learnt the card game 'Monopoly" from my friend's Uncle when I was 10 years old and he encouraged us to play it often since he considered it as a perfect for mental maths motivational tool.It also goes by the name "manipulation". In this game, players can not only meld out of their own hands, and add to other players' melds -- they can also completely change the melds on the table. I remember having a lot of fun whenever we played.Cards have the following values: Jokers: Rupees 25 each Jack, Queen, King: Rupees10 each Number Cards: face value (2 through 10) Aces: Rupee 1 each After taking his turn, a player may knock if he has five or fewer Rupees remaining in his hand. The rounds ends immediately, and scoring takes place.The goal of Manipulation is to earn as many money as possible by playing your cards onto the table in legal groups and sequences.

"TRADE" and "MONOPOLY" were the most often played games by me right from childhood to even when I went to College.


Posted by Balasubramaniam (4/03/2014)

In school days, I sold one or two book of lucky draw tickets in every year. For this, I will get incentives from my teachers.


Posted by Krishnan (4/03/2014)

While as a child I used to play "Monopoly" as I turned an adult I used to regularly play International rummy with small stakes. Perhaps that is why I have got into playing lotteries ever since 1962

when i was in primary school, i'd help in the corner store for pocket money.i was really happy being in the store and with our community. my parents were really not 'concerned' on how much i made. they were just glad that i was being responsible. the sad part of it all is that there were two older boys in our neighbourhood who used to bully me into giving them almost half my earning. that was so unfortunate for me.....like with all types of bullying...i was too afraid to speak out.

We had a little stream running past our house and being poor did not have many toys but my brother and I would make little boats out of wood, run up the stream put them in and see whose boat got to the other end first.

My sister and I used to have pony's as children and so did all the girls in our area. I used to pretend that I owned a riding school and would teach the other girls to ride in exchange for sweets.

I used to play Super Mario on the Nintendo 64

As a kid a friend of mine had an uncle who worked for an advertising company. This company decided to clear some old stock which included fridge magnets. We managed to get our hands on these. We then decided to sell these to our school mates. With the money we got we bought marbles in bulk and we sold them individually. I must say we made a tidy sum


Posted by P_DPXl (4/03/2014)
