The other day I stopped at a gas station to refuel my Spyker. As usual, a few people circled me, wanting to take photos of the exotic car. A woman shyly asked me if the car was a dream purchase of mine or bought just because I had money to burn.
I told her it was a little of both. That’s when she surprised me by saying oil was discovered on her property. She and her husband were about to start receiving fifty million dollars every month.
Think about it: Fifty million dollars each and every month.
The woman seemed uncomfortable receiving that much money. She went on to tell me that she already had property in different places, several cars, five children, a great life, and more. I noticed she was driving a brand new car which still had the temp tags on it.
She said, “It feels like this is a curse.”
Fifty million dollars a month is a curse?
I felt like I had walked into the Twilight Zone. I didn’t expect this encounter, but felt I must have attracted it for a reason. I felt I had to say something.
“The money is a gift, not a curse,” I told her. “You can direct that money to where you think it will do the most good.”
I’m not sure she heard me. She went on and told me her name (no, I’m not going to tell you it), shook my hand, and then drove off after saying, “Have a nice life.”
Why did this event occur?
I’ve often challenged people to lift their issues around money by pretending they won the lottery. What would you do if you won three million dollars? Your answer helps reveal what you really want to do in your life.
But this woman admiring my Spyker lifted my limits.
What would I do if I suddenly had fifty million dollars coming in every month?
I met a family years ago who has so much money coming in from their inventions that they built a hotel, a car factory, a winery, a spa, a golf course and last I heard, were building an entire city.
What would you do if you had fifty million dollars coming in every month?
