When I viewed this popular video about a cat called Bob, it reminded me about something.
It's the cute tale of a street busker and a homeless cat who found each other on a London street, and are now inseparable.
Now, after writing a book and giving up hard drugs, busker James Bowen has been in discussions to make his life a Hollywood movie. And Bob will be the star.
The book that has made Bob and author James Bowen famous.

It's very touching, but the real lesson is this...
It made me feel warmer towards our own cat - and buskers.
In other words, I can't see either of them without thinking of Bob and James' journey. And so I'm more inclined to be more friendly to cats and street musicians too.
James does a high-five with Bob in the documentary.
The story changed my thinking, and made life seem less bleak - more human and friendly.
In short, it was inspirational.
And that's why it's important too to keep getting inspirational messages about the lottery.
It is easy to feel depressed when your sums don't work out... when you figure you've spent X dollars and won less than that.
Unless you remember that the only way you can win any large sum is by making a small sacrifice for it, you'll give up.
Whether it's reading about people who have won, or learning the lessons that having a vast sum of money can give us, I make sure I read daily about the good things in life.

Not only do I read frequently about the benefits of lottery winning, but I pass some of my information on to you in this blog.
And I recommend you read the posts daily too. I write in the hope they will inspire you each day.
You won't find stories about lottery winners losing it all and going homeless. Mostly I like to write positive, happy posts about winners and the way it has changed their lives.
Just like the street cat called Bob and his owner, and their inspiring time together which has produced a book and a possible film.
I couldn't think of anything better - except winning this week!
