Winning the Lottery of Life: Do you realize just how lucky you are to be alive?

Did you know that the odds of you being born as yourself are more than 1 in 400 trillion?

Without breaking down the numbers, it’s apparent that those odds are straight up impossible.

Yet, you exist.

It’s easy to go through life without taking this into consideration, but think about these facts for a second.

Many many decades ago your great grandparents as well as their great grandparents and so on, magically came together to produce their children. Eventually down the line, this resulted in two people from different family trees, who out of all the other people in the world that could meet each other, came together to become your parents and produce you.

How crazy and bizarre is that? Had one minor thought, action, twist or accident happened that resulted in a different turn of direction, you wouldn’t be who you are today.

While we all go through ups and downs throughout our lives, at the very core of our existence it’s vital for us to understand that we have truly won the lottery of life.

Because we have done so, it’s essential to remember that when the going gets tough…when life is seemingly not going our way…when the odds are stacked against us and it feels as though there’s no possible resolution…that we have the most precious gift called life.

Also, for however the amount of comfort this may bring, or for a more clearer sense of reality on your situation, don’t forget that whatever it is that you may be going through, there’s always someone who is 10 times more worse off.

We don’t get to decide our circumstances early on, but it’s in our power to take massive action to change them for the better as we grow up.

It’s easier said than done, but if you can learn to instill in your mind that you are truly one of a kind, and that you are absolutely a miracle in every sense of the word, you can get through any and every obstacle that life throws at you with strength, confidence and dignity.
