Money speaks a different language to some people.
If you ever stepped into our lounge and listened to my wife and I talk, you could be forgiven for thinking we were from another planet. We talk in a secret code.
My wife would ask: "How much was the car servicing this time dear?"
"Seven eighty," I would reply absent-mindedly, as I continued to file my nails (more on that strange action shortly!)
A few minutes later I would look up from the real estate section of my iPad and exclaim: "I can't believe they want over two for that place. It doesn't even have a lift!"
"And look at this property - they want one point three for it."
And so it goes on. Have you guessed what we do?
We abbreviate money terms.
- Seven eighty is seven hundred and eighty dollars.
- Two is two million dollars.
- One point three is one million three hundred thousand dollars.
I first heard about it a while back after hearing a prominent real estate investor being interviewed about buying property as just numbers.
"If I thought about the real impact of the amount as dollars," he said, "I wouldn't be brave enough to get out of bed each day."
What the abbreviations do is remove the mental benchmarks we all have in our heads.
Many people on regular wages see their annual income as the largest amount they are familiar with. With lottery winnings, it's almost impossible to comprehend the impact that hundreds of millions of dollars will have on their lifestyle.
So they give up striving for it.
For you to move ahead financially you need to think of money merely as an abstract figure. Then it won't be so scary.
Something else that's not too scary is this: how about thirty-nine for the Silver Lotto System for today? Now you know what I'm talking about!

Or if you already have my system, then you've nearly got everything you need for the PRO System which helps your winning rate of 98% arrive quicker.
And if you wonder why I file my nails, it's because I play the classical guitar, fingerpickin' rock style. You probably saw my Maton in a photo a couple of posts back.
And I've just finished an enjoyable half-hour of music before I'm about go down to my local lotto outlet to get my tickets checked.
What are you doing right now? Worrying about your dead-end job and the boring week ahead? How would a nice fifty-four change your life like Jeb?
Got to hand it to you, the lotto system you invented should be destroyed so only I can use it. I had to share my prize with 3 others which made it only $54,370.00 for me, but Im not complaining.
