The probability of winning a lottery is 1 out of 14 million. So it is my luck. If given an opportunity to work in your company I will work. Money/Respect earned through the lottery is not equivalent to money earned through hard work.

No, Sir if I win 10 million lottery I will not quit this job because money looses its value with time but knowledge increases with time and this job will provide me the knowledge which is more valuable than money.

Money looses its value with time so it's pointless that I can keep it and can spend my whole life this. I would have invested it in a business but I am a student and don't have any business experience. My Father is a businessman and I will give it to him to invest it in his business.

I have invested my prime years to achieve skills in this professional field and I'll look forward to find my own way.

Sure, I might open my own business, startup.

Even if it's about work I will do it for myself.

Being an employee of a big company like yours would be the last thing I would do.

I am not going to quit sir. Because Money is temporary and knowledge is permanent. On spending, money is getting low but only knowledge increases on spending. I want to improve my knowledge by learning something new.

Money is everything. On the other hand money is nothing. Yes, I will quit the job after won the lottery. Because it's no use to occupy the working post. The company can take another person for this post. And somebody can get a job. The job market is very critical right now.

If I won $10 million, I would consider myself lucky and make plans of how to use the money properly but that does not mean that I should quit the job. Winning a lottery will not provide me the satisfaction of getting paid for the work that I have done for the company. The satisfaction that you get once your work has enhanced the business or improved the quality of other's lives can only come once you put in your hard work and observe the benefits of the results.

Yes, Sir, I do because money doesn't attract me. I will use that amount of money for earning a house or a particular business but I will never leave my job because doing hard work gives me an infatuation towards my work. The real happiness lies in earning money on my own through my talent. The job gives me money, experience, knowledge, and skills but money never gives a job.

As per my opinion, in the world, anything will be get free of cost.

To get money hard work is needed.

So 10 million lottery is luck by chance.

For this reason, I don't leave my job.

It depends upon when I am getting this money. If I getting that money at the age of 30, then I will do my job because job gives me chances to improve my skills, knowledge and also gives me chance to learn from management people, who well knows how to use money effectively, so I will work at that time. But if I am getting this money at the age of 45, then I will not do my job because at that time I am capable of running my own business.

Definitely as the work is always important. But I will also plan something else with my job if I get this big amount. Not working after winning a lottery is not worth as we can see examples in our lives from which we should learn. One of them being of a contestant of KBC.

Yes, I would still work because of the following reasons.

1) An Idle mind is a devil's workshop', so work will never get me into idleness.
2) Human Brain tends to lose lustre if not polished. So stimulation of brain cells is of utmost importance.
3) Winning a lottery would be an ephemeral earning, but in work, we earn not just money but experience, fame, name, and also friends almost every day.
4) At least in work, no one would ever hold our Luck or Fate RESPONSIBLE for the earning (like in lottery).
