GREAT answer but you weren't overpaid. You had the education, acute intelligence & work experience & you were aptly compensated for this in the corporate world.
No, trust me. I was overpaid. And while overpaid makes it much easier to navigate than underpaid, with income declining rather than regularly increased for no reason, I'm still happier now than I was then.
You are happier because you feel like you are contributing. You are a creator by nature, divine nature. Therefore, when you create or control you feel your divine self shining forth IMHO. Even people who hook(er) can get that feeling strangely.

Chris, thank you for your response. In many societies, it is good to be successful but not TOO successful. There is a negative connotation in many people's purview re: the overly ambitious, successful & wealthy. They are viewed by many as greed
I get what you are saying, and I have to address one part of your question separately. Poor people CAN be happier. They aren't all "sinking" but there are many "socioeconomically poor" people who have a much greater grasp of other riches.
