    Either way would be nice smile
    That being said, I would rather earn a million dollars, because I have found that if you earn something you have more respect for it.

    I would rather earn, a million dollars may actually spoil my attitude and value for things!!

    Don't let the image of my avatar fool you, there is a sane individual behind it, hahahaha, alright to answer your question, i say i would rather earn the million dollars because it would show that i alone achieved this income and whatever i did to get it obviously showed results. To say i would rather win the million, to me, seems like it would be nice, but taking more of a chance or gamble, not really being reassured that you would receive the million, could be, well would be frustrating. I mean there are no guarantees in the lottery and scratch off cards or other cash winning contests.

    I'd rather earn it. Everyone will have an own personal take on this one. But If I knew I was definitely going to make receive a million dollars in the future and I had the option of earning it or winning it, I'd say earning it. It's a way of realizing how all your hard work is paying off.

    Agreeing whole heatedly with Mom Kat!

    The thing is I know I can earn a million dollers it will just take years and Ill spend as I go. But my earnings over years will have totaled that. If I could earn it faster Id say earn as winning comes with other problems.

    Earn because I'd feel better about it and either way you have to pay taxes on it. Also if you can earn it once you can earn it again ^_^

    I would rather earn because the chances of me winning one million big ones are one in a million but i would play my birthday every week and hope to win, but still i could put 20 dollars every week for the restt of my life i would become a millionaire

    Oh I would definately rather earn it. It would certainly give me a sense of accomplishment. Winning would be nice, I won't deny that, but not as satisfying.

    That's a great question! I would say, it all depends on the time factor.

    If it would take me a lifetime to earn it, I don't see any sense in that. If I could earn it in, let's say, 6 months, I would always say, earn, since then I would know how to do it and I could do it again! So that would make many millions out of the one and that really sounds great to me!

    I've worked from the age of 14, many times working 2 jobs, and deeply appreciate the value of earning money. So, I guess that's not an issue for me. I'd rather win it.

    Earning it sounds but better, but honestly I'd rather win it. I'd give most of it away right off the bat, so if it was 'found money' I'd feel less guilty about that. Also, although I value my labor and I do like to work and have worked hard most of my life, I can't imagine anything I could possibly do in this life that would be worth a million dollars, especially when so many people are working even harder for almost nothing.

    All I really want is enough, and time to write and be with my family. Anything more than that is gravy, but I know that's not the usual attitude.
