There’s a big difference between making money and accumulating wealth. Said in another way: It’s not what you make, it’s what you keep. And what you do with the money you keep—how you treat it and how much you respect it—makes a world of difference.

Don’t believe it? Consider that nearly 70 percent of lottery winners go broke within seven years, according to the book “Money for Nothing: One Man’s Journey Through the Dark Side of Lottery Millions.”

As an example, a person wins a lottery and blows the winnings on opportunistic friends and family, half-baked investment opportunities and extravagant living. While another, like Elon Musk, sells a business for a nice profit, reinvests the bulk of the proceeds in a new business and, over time, becomes a billionaire.

The same applies to people who earn high salaries. Some retire early and sail the world; others struggle to keep the toys they’ve acquired while stretching to make ends meet. Wealth accumulation isn’t so much about making money; it’s about the attitudes and behaviors people indulge in while acquiring it, as well as the decisions they make when managing it.’
