What did he do with all that money? Former NFL quarterback Vince Young has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Six years after signing a $58 million contract, with $26 million of it guaranteed, Young says he’s broke. Ouch.
As in the case of Vince Young, it is always best to remember that money will not change your life. It may change your circumstances for a time, but it will not change you. If you’re sad, you will still be sad. If you are lazy you will still be lazy, if you are wise, you will still be wise. The money might give you a bump in status, but who you are will always level things out.
