70% of lotto winners will lose the money they won within a few years.
Because money is a story.
A story we tell ourselves.
If we view money as a an enemy, something that gets in the way, something that we’re always behind on— there is simply no amount will that’ll ever be enough. This sometimes sounds like, “If I am ever rich, then I’ll donate.”
The opposite is also true too. If money is a way you keep score, then making 13 billion dollars in a day doesn’t satisfy the itch for more.
Those who view money as a tool, however, they figure out how to save their money until they are no longer paying interest anymore.
At the end of the day…
Money amplifies character, it doesn’t change it.
