How much money would it take to make you completely satisfied?

    How much money would it take to make you completely satisfied?

    What amount of money would it take to make you completely satisfied?
    If you won $100,000 would you wish you had won $1 million instead?
    If you won $1 million but had to pay half of it in taxes, would you you wish you had more?
    Is there an amount of money that would completely satisfy you and you would want nothing more?

    Half a million would do me nicely thank you.  I'd pobably give most of it away anwyay.  Better make that half a million - after taxes.

    No.  There's no amount which is enough, because there is always something else you can do with it.

    If you have 1,000 you can have a shopping spree and live "above your means" for a while.

    If you have 10,000 you can get a decent car.

    If you have 50,000 you can pay off an average debt.

    If you have 100,000 you can pay off a mortgage and buy a second house.

    If you have 500,000 you can invest enough to stay comfortable forever.

    If you have 1,000,000 you can donate half and still be comfortable.

    If you have 5,000,000 you can donate and still live like a star.

    If you have 10,000,000 you can set up your whole family and all your friends for life.

    If you have 15,000,000 you can start your own charity working on the world's problems, plus all of the above.

    If you have 20,000,000 you can push for lobbyists and whatnot to try and sway the government to your side.

    etc etc etc.  There is always more.

    If the person has gratitude, he will be satisfied no matter how much the money is.

    A million dollars will do it for me.

    After prioritizing my needs, and sorting out my most immediate needs, and finally putting that greed to bed, I know that one million is it!

    With an ever-inflating currency, I think I'm young enough to say I don't think I can afford to be satisfied.  Maybe 1 billion dollars?  It is hard to say what currency will be become in the next 50 years.

    Then spend that money to become somewhat self sufficient where I dont need a steady paycheck to survive the future no matter what would happen:

    1. Solar/Wind Power
    2. Grow/Raise Food

    Yes, A million dollars indeed is fine! I can do a lot of charity with this funds and help many people. For now, I'm working hard to give as much as possible.

    Good question drpennypincher, for me I will be happy if I got enough money to live on and pay for bills. I would like to have a little bit of saving to use when I need it for emergencies. That's all.

    Money & Power can't satisfy men. Don't know about others.

    I don't want millions, I just want us to afford a decent life. Which we actually afford right now. We both work at our own businesses, we travel whenever we want and are also debt free. I don't expect any inheritance or lottery money, I'd just want us to be healthy so that we can do what we're currently doing wink
