    ever notice how your family and friend's financial problems are ALWAYS the same ratio of YOUR net cash value?

    for instance...

    if i have 100 dollars in my pocket, someone will be in desparate need of about $30.00 from me.

    so, it stands to reason, that if i had one million dollars, those same people would need about $300,000 all of a sudden.

    go figga...

    if i had 10 million, i would have a lot of people peed at me, for sure.... calling me stingy and just plain despising me. no doubt about that...

    lot's of money wouldn't make me happier than i am now, that's for sure.

      Money issues aren't discussed between our family or amoung our friends..

      I have no clue to whether they have more or less than I do..  ~~

                re: How much money will make you fee rich?

                Posted this before, can't find it but it fits here:

                From the book True Prosperity, How to Have Everything, by Yehuda Berg:

                 A stock trader on Wall Street worth $50 million loses half his fortune one day, when the market crashes and causes his net worth to fall to $25 million. Meanwhile, on the same day, a mailman in wichita sells a stock short and doubles his $10,000 savings to $20,000.

                Who goes to bed that night with with peace of mind and a deeper sense of security and fulfillment -  the stock trader with his $25 million, or the mailman with his $20,000.

                 ______________________________________________

                 Also, regarding feeling rich and lotto- I think you have to think in 'today's dollars' and future dollars. Not too long ago the thought of making $50,000 a year was a dream come true - now that $50,000 is hardly what it was then.

                Say someone would have won a state lottery for $5 million back in the 1970's. I don't think there even was a cash option then, so let's say after taxes and a 26 year payout schedule they were getting about $140,000 a year. Nice, but by year 26 that $145,000 was hardly what it was in year one. Look what Justxploring said about Florida houses - $500,000.

                There's a story about someone encountering a genie and the genie says everyone wants millions and then wishes they could find the genie again. So the guy who just encountered the genis says, "Here's my wish, whatever I want to buy I have the money for when I reach in my pocket- and another $50 on top of that."

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  I agree most people always associate the word rich to money,

                     That snetiment is fine, but even a person who says that, let them come into $1,000,000 or more and then ask them if they feel any richer than they did the moment before they got it.

                    The poll question isn't do you feel rich, but how much of the 'green enrgy', the $$$$$, would it take to make you feel rich.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      I agree with tntea.  I wasn't blessed with a happy marriage and children, but no amount of money can replace that kind of love. 

                      That being said, I agree with Coin Toss that this poll isn't about spiritual wealth.  It isn't about health either.  If it were I would say that if I had AIDS or Cancer or was facing the loss of my sight, I'd burn a winning lottery ticket in a minute to be well again. 

                      So to keep it simple, let's assume we are talking about the smelly, sweaty green stuff they hand you at the supermarket.  BTW, handling money is hazardous to your health. It's full of germs.

                        Please note that 7 people said that they can't count that high. Well I have been in school trying to get my degree in elementary education, and I can count "that high." I guess I am toooooo generous. I would have to be able to support my sisters (their sorry excuse of a husbands barly do the job now). My neices and nephew, grandparents, one set of aunts and uncles, a couple of cousins, one best friend, parents, charity, and then me. WOW that sounds like the twelve days of Christmas. Well if I keep praying for good health maybe I will win befor I die.

                          I would feel rich winning a MegaMillions jackpot even if it had just been won during the previous drawing since I don't plan on supporting anyone but myself.  I've never felt responsible for the needs of others and having a few extra bucks in my pocket wouldn't change my thinking.

                              Money is energy.  Money is not the source of that energy, it is a reward and a tool of energy.  Money alone won't bring wealth.  Energy will.

                              Wealth is very subjective.  A blind man with 5 bucks in his pocket considers himself wealthy if he has a friend drive him to Subway so he can buy a sandwich.  What makes him feel wealthy?  It's not the 5 bucks, it's the fact that he had a friend that drove him there.
