What she wanted was simple. Barbra Streisand's home in Malibu, California.
Singer Barbra Streisand was once asked what motivated her to fame and fortune in the entertainment industry.
The "Funny Girl" star said she had one ambition back early in her career, and it was not having to make her own bed - a task she clearly hated. I guess she doesn't make her own bed now!
Sometimes I'm asked what do I do for a living by curious strangers.
"I'm a writer," I often say. "Oh?" invariably comes the response. "What do you write?"
"Ransom notes. Only takes a sheet of paper."
It gets a laugh.
But the power of a single piece of paper can't be underestimated.
Your winning lottery ticket is your key to escaping all the problems in your life right now. It will make your life vastly more pleasant on a scale you couldn't imagine right now.
That single slip of paper - the lottery ticket - can be life-changing.
But you need to get serious. Just like building a career or taking a job, you need to discover whether you really want to take annual vacations in the sun, or have your housekeeping done for you.
Then pour all that passion and energy into your lottery game... play, and play consistently. And one day, someone will make your bed for you.
