Winning lots of money makes you happy -Discuss Happiness everyone wants it but how can you get it family, friends, love or maybe money. But can money really make you happy. Winning the lottery is many peoples dream: becoming a millionaire, living your dreams, becoming debt free but surely it can't be as easy as that stress and fall in relationships are some of the effects that money can cause. One of the biggest advantages of winning a large sum of money is that it enables you to live a better ay of life. Lee Ryan and his family from the channel 4 documentary - the trouble with money lived in a council house working hard to provide for their kids until they won �6m, on the national lottery.

But you can help people in other ways. Lee Ryan set his friend up in the car business. You can help yourself as well invest your money to get more money out. Two friends from a national newspaper were both laid off work a couple weeks later they both won on the national lottery �2m and �14m One of which was interested in buying shares of his local football club.

Whether it is a small amount that will last a month or a large amount that will last many years. ...read more.
