I think many of us feel that if we could just make it big or get a lucky break we would be able to solve all of our problems.  That's not always true though.  We've all read about or heard about the family that won the lottery and then went bankrupt a few years later.  The above video usually brings about a "holier than thou" response from viewers who think they would be much smarter than these "dumb athletes" but how sure are you about that?  Can you honestly say you've never made a purchasing decision because of how you thought someone else might think of you?  I know I can't.  As Dave Ramsey would say, winning the money game is "more behavioural than mathematical."
