One time I was telling someone I would like to win the lotto of 40 million dollars. They said, “I would not want to pay all the taxes on that money.” I said, “You have got to be kidding. If you paid 50% you would still be 20 million dollars richer.” They were serious in the fact that they would not want to win the money due to all the taxes they would have to pay.

How is your attitude when ideas come your way? What do you do when you think about things? Do you look for the negative or the positive? How can you improve?
