I was talking with my sister the other day and she was unhappy that she is still making 50k at her architecture job which is what she made 3 years prior. 50k to me is a lot of money, and it’s hard to understand where she is coming from that 50k a year isn’t enough.
I can’t remember the book but they interviewed a lot of people and asked them how much they made and how much they would need to make to consider themselves rich. Pretty much everyone gave the same answer. If they made $20,000 a year it would take $40,000 for them to consider themselves rich, if they made $200,000 it would take $400,000 for them to consider themselves rich. Everyone wanted to be making twice as much money for them to consider themselves as rich.
Even though I want to make more money I still consider myself rich. I don’t have to go to a 9-5 job 5 days a week. I don’t have a set number of days off a year. I can do whatever I want and since I believe time is money I am richer then most.
