What would you do if you won a big lottery drawing? Lots of people dream that dream and fantasize what they’d do when they instantly win millions and millions of dollars. After the thrill is over, we’re still the same people. If we were unhappy with ourselves before we won, we’ll be unhappy with ourselves after we win. Conversely, if we’re happy with ourselves before we won, we’ll be happy with ourselves after we win. Money may change circumstances, but it doesn’t change the who we are. Only we can do that. That’s why buying things only brings temporary happiness that soon evaporates like the morning dew. Find happiness within and you’ve already won the lottery.
