WOuld it make you any happier? Would it make you any better? Maybe this isn't the greatest site to post this or maybe it is bu is money the only thing in the world to give a damn about? Obviously it has it's place but really, do we need to be rich to be happy? What happens when you get rich and find out that getting rich was better than being rich?

Winning lottery never makes my life more happier, because what makes me happy is my family and the love of my life, my son and my hubby and real friends around me. BUt if im lucky enough to win lottery it's great, makes our life easier financially and so that we can pay our mortgage and give my family a better life.

Yes, if you were alone, then what use would that money be? I would have to say that as long as you are happy with htose in your life, then everything else is secondary.

that's great if i won the lottery...really. for i don't need to post discussions here on myLot to earn extra profit hahaha. we'll money can't but everything in this world, everybody say's that's but yes, i can change a lot about you financially speaking. one can buy things unimaginable to ordinary people...expensive cars, a mansion, your own business, travel around the world and that will make you feel good. happiness? if your sick about being rich in an instant that will make you happy enough. first on my list if i won the lottery is: i would travel around the world, my first stop is London for I want to visit someone there. second is: to put up my own bar/pub for people who love nightlife cause i love the nightlife. third: my priority is my family and all of my relatives so i would share half of it to them. fourth: a portion of it will go to a charity institution.

Yeah, it is always nice to have money and it is good that you seem to be wanting to do something with it instead of wasting it. I think as long as there is a purpose, then that is ok. Personally, I'd love to have a lot of money. I could fund an album, which would be awesome because I would love to make music and I think that I actually have to say in that regard.. In the end, there is no heart in money, and money can't make you who you are, it can only test who you are.

we need money for like almost everything, no doubt. but we do not need to be rich to be happy. we can still have all the money in the world but not content with our lives, so what's the use? there are much important things in life than money.

Hi, We do not need to become rich to be happy but we need money in order to live happily. I never won lottery before maybe because I seldom play lottery. If I can win lottery, I will be very happy.

I disagree with you on that you need to live happily being rich. I know of people who are worse than me that are better off than my family. Money doesn't mean a thing but a number. It is the effort put into making it and what you do with it that matters.
