This week, the two major lotteries have a combined payout of more than $1.5 billion. Even if you only win one, and take the cash option, you’d win more that $500 million.
What would you do with all that money?
You’d buy a pickup truck, and a Tesla/Audi/Mercedes. A new house. Eliminate your debt.
All of that together isn’t even a million bucks. It’s the rest of the money that will ruin your life.
Are you going to invest in cocaine and hookers? Alcohol and pills?
Are you going to buy a house in Aspen, and a condo in Belize?
You can only live in one house at a time. If you want to go to Aspen, or Belize, you can rent.
A private jet?
Where, exactly, do you want to go? How often? You just dropped a lot of coin on your new house.
You can charter a jet, and escape the upkeep and salaries involved with ownership.
Looks like we’re back to cocaine and hookers, and alcohol and pills.
Maybe you’ll get lucky, and you won’t win.
