Life Goals That Are Actually Terrible Experiences

Winning the Lottery 1 of 7

We all set big goals for our lives and expect that everything will turn out perfectly when we achieve them. Sadly, this isn't always the case. These are some life goals that don't turn out the way we planned and can be truly terrible experiences.

Everyone dreams of winning the lottery. Some people even buy lottery tickets every week, even though the odds of winning the jackpot are so low. Even if you beat the odds and actually win, your life will be far from perfect. Besides the "lottery curse" that causes people to lost all their money and have terrible things happen to them, most winners become depressed. Little things in life just aren't as fun when you're rich. If you do win, take the annuity instead of the lump sum, it's been proven that people who take the annual payments are happier.
