What Would You Do With One Million Dollars?

by Pam on March 31, 2010

I was watching the T.V. show How Winning The Lottery Changed My Life the other day and it was interesting to see how different people responded to their big win.  Some won a million dollars while others won 49 million.  Either way, the winning  changed many people’s lifestyles dramatically, and not all experienced positive changes.

For me, I am quite certain that the money itself wouldn’t necessarily make me happy, however, the fact that I would be able to help a whole lot of people by using this money would be extremely rewarding.

If I suddenly came upon a million dollars, I think I would focus on helping the poor both in my own country and abroad.  I would either partner up with an existing organization or start my own.   I would like to help people help themselves by lending them enough money to purchase equipment and tools in order to start up their own businesses.  Once their businesses were successful they would pay me back.  That way there would be continuous cash flow and I could continue to help more and more people.

There are a lot of things I could think of doing with a million dollars, and I am sure you have lots of ideas, too.  Some ideas include traveling around the world, investing in real estate… the list is endless.  I think the important thing is to realize that we don’t really need a million dollars to pursue our goals and dreams.  Sure, having money makes it a lot easier to pursue your dreams, as it frees up your time to allow you to do what you enjoy, but we should never use the excuse that because we don’t have enough money that we have to set aside our goals.  As they say, where there is a will, there is a way.  You just have to be determined enough to find your way.

What do you think you would do if you had a million dollars?  Have you ever stopped and really thought about it?  What is the first thing that comes to your mind?  Do you think it would make you happy?
