    A person's attitude towards money determines their level of success with it. I used to see it all the time. A guy who couldn't budget to live on $50,000/year ended up with a job where he's making $150,000/year, and he still can't budget it. He ends up still spending more than he brings in. It's never about the money,

    it's about the mindset.

    For these people, no matter what payment method you put them on or how much the sum is, they'll find a way to squander it all. It's not that hard to pick out those who will end up broke. We knew it was going to happen with Leroy Fick. We knew it was going to happen with Cynthia Stafford. Ditto with DLE.

    And it's not just lottery winners that have a tell. When Sheree Whitfield said "A budget. What's that? I don't shop on a budget." and when Toni Braxton blasted Oprah for telling her to never spend money until she knows how much she actually has, I knew they'd both be broke in no time flat. I had a good laugh when Toni filed for her second bankruptcy and Sheree got booted out her house.

    Absolutely! I've heard it described as a "thermostat" (it might have been Jim Rohn who said it). Everybody has a financial "thermostat". If it's set at $50k per year, and it's August and you're only on track to earn $40k, you'll bust your buns to get that income back on track for $50k. But once you're back on track you relax and settle into your $50k lifestyle... The thing is, a person can reset their thermostat. Could be lower, could be much higher. If you earn a million per year, that thermostat will kick the heater on if you're on track to only make $900k... Likewise, if you win a million, but you still have poor person thoughts, you'll become poor again in 2 shakes of a lamb's tail.

          Groppo,  Thank You for your compliments. I am not a Certified Financial Planner. 

           A tough question that my CFP will ask is like, How are you paid? What experience do you have?   I am sure that my CFP will have many other questions when I am hiring say, a CPA or an investment firm.

           A qualified CFP will have both academic credentials as well as on the job experience.

           Try googling Certified Financial Planners.  I own and have read Susan Bradley's book titled, "Sudden Money". 

           An excellent adviser will be worth the money you spend on him or her.

          Susan also has an advisory firm!

                    I'd throw in another $10M for a nice cozy bunker, preps, ammo, and a respectable arsenal ;)

                      Sharon Tirabassi from Canada is an example of losing it all. I guess she was bad at math. 

                       She won $10,000,000.00 Canadian dollars and lost it all over ten years. She did set up trust funds for her kids.

                            .

                            Has anyone actually sat down and tried to figure out why the numbers are so elusive,
                            that has left the big prize still at bay (or maybe adrift somewhere in the Pacific) ?

                            I mean the whole world has to be in on this game. 
                            I could sit here and say "OK, TUESDAY IS IT, somebody better win it.", but will it be won?

                            DO WE WANT TO FIND OUT THAT SOME ICELANDIC FISHERMAN HAS WON IT?
                            PLEASE FOLKS, DO YOUR BEST TO KEEP THE WINNERS IN THE USA. 

                            I'm too old to take this excitement  much longer.
                            I'm not even excited anymore, I'm starting to get annoyed.

                            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                       (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
                            • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.

                              With all of this hullabaloo, it hadn't even occurred to me to pick up a PB ticket for tonight. It's scary/sad when a $470M jackpot seems so insignificant that you lose track of it, like a set of car keys.
