I saw this report tonight on the news and it’s amazing the operation that goes on to draw the numbers for Powerball. High security is a understatement.

Money Changes Everything

A lot of people would love to win that $1.3 billion Powerball Lottery jackpot that is out there right now. However it would change everything for the winner of that fortune. One person would be giddy and millions of others would be really bummed. Money does affect every part of one’s life. It can bring some happiness but it could bring much tragedy and sadness. More dollars don’t bring much sense. People would need some sound financial advice in order to manage that enormous amount of money. Relationships can change and they won’t always be good. People come out of the woodwork to get a piece of one’s pocketbook. Is wealth worth it?It truly is a personal decision when it comes to riches.

This is one of my favorite songs on the subject. Cyndi Lauper puts it all in perspective with this song from back in the day.

This is crazy, $1.3 billion is a lot of money. Lottery players are going to rush to get their tickets for the next drawing. I have heard where winning the lottery has caused more problems for the winners than it has solved. Funny how that happens.
