8 Ways you can attract prizes to you


As a competition fanatic I’m open to anything that can give me an edge. I’m also a big believer in your mindset playing a big role in what you attract in life. Have you ever met one of those happy go lucky people where everything just falls into place for them? Or what about when you expect the worse and it actually happens? Or when you think of an old friend and a week later you run into them?

There seems to be a law at work where what you think seems to affect your surroundings and their outcomes. So let’s start attracting some winning vibes to us! Here are 8 Ways to attract Prizes to you now:


  1. Decide you’re worth it. Feeling guilty or greedy will only block your prize. Decide you’re worthy to win and worthy of being lucky. Believe there is enough prizes and luck for everyone and watch them roll in.
  2. Visualise. Write down all the prizes you want to win. Read your list everyday and spend a few minutes everyday visualising yourself enjoying your prizes and the postie delivering them to you. Alternatively you could create a vision board with pictures of all the things and experiences you want to win. Close your eyes and spend a few minutes each day visualising and recapping your list or board.
  3. Use positive affirmations like ‘I’m driving my new car I won in the …..’ and ‘I am full of luck.’ Record them as a voice memo on your phone and listen to your personal affirmations commuting to work or exercising.
  4. Help someone. Connect with people in the forum or answer a question about a competition. When a fellow comper is down offer some positive encouragement. Be as helpful as possible and you will be rewarded.
  5. Meditate. Meditation has been shown to cultivate a more positive outlook on life and the universe likes people who have a positive outlook on life. Negative is ugly and nobody likes ugly.
  6. Declutter. If I were a prize I would want to go to a home that was well organised and free of clutter! Freeing space and getting organised clears the mind, which reduces anxiety, which helps you focus on the real things in life like……….winning competitions of course.
  7. Enter more competitions. The more you enter the more chances you have!
  8. Enter then forget. Don’t hold on to the past. If you miss out be happy for whoever won. The universe doesn’t like sore losers.


The law of attraction is working all around us. Think you’re not going to win? Guess what? You probably won’t. Think it’s all too hard and you don’t enter? Yep you’re not going to win either. If you want to win you have to think and act like a winner.

Why You Should Always Keep Your 25 Word or Less Answers



This is a Guest Post by Nicole Cappelleri.

Recently I was doing some housekeeping on my computer.  I had been getting that horrible pop up ‘Disk is Full’.  Looking at my desktop it was a sea of folder’s. It looks tidy but looks can be deceiving. I have folders for blogging, books I’m writing, graphic design stuff, templates and of course Competitions.

I decided to look through the competition folder. I started comping 6 years ago so I thought there’s got to be something I can delete in there?

I found my old WOL (Word or Less) files where I kept my little one-liners and poems. As I suspected these files were jam-packed. They were endless pages of competitions and their corresponding answers I had entered. Also beneath them was where I brainstormed, words and ideas.

Now I tend to not keep them unless they are really good and I’ll often think of an answer on the spot. Even brainstorming I’ll hit delete. But reading through my old WOL files suddenly I found myself nostalgic. My comping journey lay bare in front of me. Years of hope when I was in a miserable job and all those prizes won and lost.

I remember sneakily comping in my cubicle at work when nobody was looking. I remember sending myself emails from work with ideas. Sitting on the train trying to rhyme my answers.

To my surprise I found the very first 25 word or less answer I came up with. It was at the top of the page of file WOL1. It was silly and stupid but I did really want a new car at the time. It didn’t really answer the question or use the promoter in any way. It was basic to say the least:


So all my enemies and friends see me!

This is for the Australian dream!

Where revenge is here for you and me!


And then there was a winning WOL for a Mothers Day Comp:


Mum understood our tears….

And calmed all our fears!

A reward, for all life has dealt her!

All grown up, its time we helped her!


And then there was the book. This was where it all began for me. My creative blockage became unplugged. My creative juices had started to flow with every 25 word or less I wrote. I started to think the unthinkable at the time. I can be creative! The story for a book was emerging and I was on a journey which I’m still on to this day, sitting at my computer writing this blog post for you.

I soon realised I couldn’t bare deleting any of these files. This was part of my own story. This was my history. I’ve kept them and they sit in a folder on my desktop. Reminding me of how far I’ve come.

Now I’m adding to the files again. Reworking old answers. Rejigging the rhymes. So I challenge you to keep all your 25 Word or Less answers. They are a window in the past. They will tell a story, your story.
