Honestly I'll stop to my recently job instead working hard to the new one which I am investing my 1/4 of $10million winning price. Such as putting a business that helps to my family to our daily needs and the remaining I'll put it in the bank for the better future.

Yes. I will do still work, because work made me perfect. When I stop it then I would not gain any knowledge and any experience, so I will continue it, and lottery is only a chance for a more better life.

Surely, I continue to work here. Though these job gives me less money but it gives me the satisfaction of doing something, like to be a independent person having my own identity. These 10 million dollar only gives me pleasure for some days but not for whole life. And the value of money gained from hard work is much more higher than any freely get things.

$10 MILLION!. I ask you sir what would you do with that damn money, I won't lie sir like others but there are chances that I ll leave your firm and invest my money in your shares and work more actively for the company and I will quit it after completing my notice period only because once commitment is done is done and I am a guy who believes that a relationship should never be ruined just for the sake of money.

Hello out there.

Am Helen Florez From CANADA, am grateful to share this great testimonies with you, The best thing that has ever happened in my is how I win the lottery. I am a woman who believe that one day I will win the lottery. Finally my dreams came through even if I did not win millions but it is still ok with me cause I have come a long way spending money on ticket just to make sure I win.

But I never know that winning was so east until the day I meant the spell caster online which so many my people has talked about that he is very great, so I decide to give it a try. I contacted this man and he did some rituals and he gave me the winning numbers for the lottery I was not that sure that I will win.

But believe me when the draws were out I was among winners I never believe in voodoo or magic but from now on I will cause I have seen for myself so I decide to share it with other this is the man that will make you rich forever.

I will to explain you the reason let me give you an example.

Do you see the billionaires like Mukesh Ambani, Amitabh Bacchan, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Mark Zukerberg going on a hiatus or deciding to stop working when they are earning billions and millions every single day. No Sir, they certainly don't.

The answer is simple sir, the world never stops working even if you're the poorest of all or the richest.

Please sir, don't make me dream. This question is not worth it. If I would have to answer then I go lie this:

I will keep some money from my personal needs and will distribute rest to the needy ones (yeah, that will give me satisfaction). The money which is not earned by me will never give me full satisfaction.

I just gone through the answers, most of girls said, money is not everything, money comes easily and goes easily. And the interesting thing is people liked their answers more and most of the boys answered like "they want to invest the money in business" because the boy knows the value of money and also he need to take care of his family, specially in an economical support.

Guys? Is it good, related question for what we work practically at work place?

Why did the Idiot HR asks such stupid questions like, why can't you check candidate's will power, stability and work performance. Stop asking stupid questions. It my kind of request for HR's.

Of course I would quit my job. However, that doesn't mean I would quit working. There are many kinds of work in this world. I would use a portion of the 10 million to find ways to help others. But, I would no longer have the constraints of "need for money". Therefore, I would look for ways to help others succeed.

Yes, off course I will still love to work because for me money is important but it is not everything. I work in your organisation to gain more knowledge and to get experience in my field. For me, a person with money and without knowledge is useless.

Money matters a lot. But earning it is much more preferable and peaceful with respect to having luck to have a lottery. So experience will help me to do better in future.

Sir, I would think of $10 million lottery as an another source of income. As I am already getting income from my work, so its a kinda win-win situation and of course I would be on cloud nine. If at that time, I am in need of something, I would buy them but won't leave the job. As it allows me to advance my career and helps me to achieve my Long term objective of being a reputed person in the company.

All rich person in this world all rich enough to buy anything they want but they still work as it keeps them busy and enhance their skills and knowledge. So, I will stay here.

If I get money with luck or without effort, it would not have such value and even that doesn't give me satisfaction of success but it may give happiness for some time but, If we earn single rupee with our effort that gives me satisfaction. So I believe in my work not in luck, so I'll work,

Oh yes I will still be working with the company but I might just invest it in shares with this company and become your boss until am able to set up a company like this. See am not just here because of the money but also for the experience and the satisfaction of doing what I have always wanted to do, so yes I will stay.

"After I floated down from cloud nine", I think I would still hold my basic belief that achievement and purposeful work are essential to a happy, productive life. After all if money alone bought happiness, then all rich people would be all happy, and that's not true.

"I love the work" I do, and I think I'd always want to be involved in my career in some fashion. Winning the lottery would make it more fun because it would mean having more flexibility, more options. Who knows?

"Of course", since I can't count on winning, I'd just as soon create my own destiny by sticking with what's worked for me, meaning good old reliable hard work and a desire to achieve.

I think those qualities have built many more fortunes that all the lotteries put together.

I strongly believe in a philosophy i.e. the things which come easily will go easily.

Apply the same to the question of the HR i.e money which comes easily will go easily.

So strongly I don't believe in easy money rather be money by effort really tastes good.
