Apparently, it’s possible to win the lottery and be happy, too

The good habits of life that I possess are those habits peculiar to my particular station in life and the kind of situations I can expect to find myself in, resources I find close to hand, and the temptations I can expect to face.

This is why successful lottery winners are those who do not allow their lottery win to change their current lifestyle to any significant degree, but rather just perfect it and make it more secure.

Those who find themselves bankrupt and/or miserable five to ten years down the road are those who allowed the money to thrust them into significantly different situations, social circles, etc, for which they possessed few or none of the requisite virtues.
