What is the point if you make $80K a year if you are miserable? If you find yourself drinking all the time to escape then your money means nothing. If your job doesn’t fit you, if you have an angry boss, if you find that you are expected to go against your beliefs, then it doesn’t matter how much money you make. You’ll spend it all on trying to escape with vacations, therapy, and expensive toys.
What is the point if you have a 25K square foot house if you have to work 60 hours a week just to afford it? You never get to spend any real time in it. You’ll spend a lot of that money in upkeep on it and the grounds.
Who are you trying to impress? What is really important to you? They say that money can’t buy you happiness. Maybe there is some truth in that.
I’ve heard that the best way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it in your pocket. This seems like good advice.
