My question to you is, how much money is enough?
How much would you have to make a year or have in your bank account to be at peace financially? OR... do you think you'll always want more, no matter what goal you reach?
I would say about $100,000 a year would keep me financially sound. It would allow me to live comfortable and still get any luxury items I need without going into debt.
I've found that the amount I make doesn't change how at peace I am financially. One year I made over $200,000 and honestly, I had even more to worry about.
I used to live in Brazil and most of my friends down there made under $500 per month. They all faced the same problems that Americans face making $2,000+ per month - we almost all spend all of our money no matter how much we make.
If you make $2,000 per month, you are richer than 90% of people on earth. In most cases, it probably doesn't seem like it because you know people who make $4,000 or $10,000.
No matter how much you make, people make less and more and some of them live within their means and find peace, others do not.
WhenI was young I think I would have had a hard time putting a cap on what I wanted or how much I thought I needed. Now that I am older, I want good medical insurance and a way to insure a roof over my head. I'm not sure what dollar figure that would be though.
I think if we have enough to fill our needs but not so much as to take away all our wants then we will have enough.
