If the day arrives when you suddenly win the big bet that you had placed on a winner, it can be a life-changing moment. The first thing that may come to your mind is giving up your job. This should be something that you should think over carefully no matter how big your win is.
There is no doubt that if you decide to keep your job, news of your big win from betting will soon get out. Once it does, you are going to find it influencing your job and your working environment.
It is important that you view your work environment with a proper perspective. You cannot adopt an “I no longer care” type of attitude when it comes to your professional responsibilities. While your employer will likely be quite happy about your winnings, they will also be concerned about your job performance. You still have the duty to act responsibly at work and continue working as you had done prior to your big win. After all, it was you who won big and not the business that you work for.
You should make it clear that you intend to hold onto your job and that a future promotion is just as important to you as it was prior to your winnings. You may want to take your holidays at the time of your winning so you can come to grips with the fact that you are now better off financially. It will also give you some time to enjoy your winnings if this is part of your plan.
Once this is done, its time to return to the workplace with the same intent of being a good employee as your past record has indicated. There are some great opportunities to win big bets but there must be a perspective.
