There is a HUGE difference between earning money and winning money. Winning money requires good fortune or as other people would like to describe it, luck. Winning money can rarely be done on a consistent basis, and those winnings do get spent somehow. Winners may think their winnings are 10 time more than they really are and throw money away. Soon those winnings start to disappear, but earnings never disappear. It takes work to get earnings, not pure luck. Working to earn money will give you a greater value for what money is really worth and how limited it truly is. When I earn money, I am always happy, but that’s not because I see the hundreds of dollars moving to my Paypal account, but instead, I am seeing all of my hard work pay off. When you are an earner, it’s not about the money you earn, but it’s about becoming independent and able to thrive on your own.
