I sometimes ponder this question myself (should have included woman in the subject title as well
I'm not sure why (well ok I do know a few reasons why) that I have never pursued making a large amount of money. I've never really equated it to personal success,although I do see the benefits that having money can have in relieving the everyday stresses of financially taking care of yourself and your loved ones.
I've always felt that if I were ever going to rich it would be through some fluke as winning the lottery, some out of the blue inheritance from some rich unknown relative, or maybe just an uxepected offshoot of creating something that others enjoyed or valued and you had no way of knowing how profitable it would become.
I do buy lottery tickets on occasion,because I know how much it would help myself and others I care about in relieving financial stress if I won.
But I also have thought that it could have some very negative effects,and could bring on a whole set of problems I had not forseen.On accasion I've even bought lottery tickets and started panicing at the thought of how things would change if I won.(pretty stupid to buy a lottery ticket and then hope you don't win,because you're not sure of how that will effect things,but I've done it
Was curious to see how some of you would handle winning lets say 25 million dollars? How do you think it would help your life? What would you do with the money? How do you think it could have a negative impact?
Thanks to anyone who responds to this question.
