Ya, sounds crazy right….but everyone must think how great it is to win the lottery, yet…have we considered the ramifications?
Here are some reasons i would consider it more:
If it were kept private – i think the feeling of winning the lottery must be one of the greatest in ones lifetime, but having it announced on the television has gotta suck….imagine all your friends out there who maybe you haven’t talked to in so long – contacting you for jobs, business opportunities, investments, the list goes on and on. And if you don’t take them up on their offer, they will curse you and never be your friend again.
Imagine the lawsuits – I worry about this too, I heard a story a bout guy in Southern USA, had a small business doing housing and construction – he won the lottery, and then all these companies and customers knew he had a lot of money ,found reasons in previous deals and contracts they had with him – sued him for all he had – and BANKRUPTED HIM.
MORE MONEY, MORE PROBLEMS – Its a rap song I remember from my younger days…but I also think its true to life.
Same with business…..I / people fight so hard to make a business – when you do make it, there will be a line of people there to try to get money out of you.
In another way, its a saying – be careful what you wish for…….everyone wants to be rich and famous, but then once you are famous – you hide from the cameras and lead a secret life – is that really worth it? You worked so hard for everyone to know you, once you are known, you don’t want people to see you. Strange.
People always want what they cannot have.
Maybe if I make money (one day…., still breaking even making ends meet) I will want more? Will it be enough – set a goal. Reach the goal, then what.
Maybe overtired today, but brainstorming…reflecting, and sharing.
