It's also likely that you are living a full and rich life in comparison to folks living in quiet desperation on $200,000 per year in places like Manhattan and Silicon Valley.

If I made $200,000 I would of only had to work a couple of years and then been retired. When I was a kid, like in the 8th grade, I can remember thinking that my definition of a rich person is one that didn't have to work for a living. I worked at Burger King, Winn Dixie (Meat Cutter), Kraft Foods (lifting boxes), then went to College and then worked at various lab jobs as a technician. I found all of the jobs quite boring and repetitious, and every one of the bosses had and ego problem. My favorite thing that bosses like to do have you do is move stuff from over "here" to over "there." Uh, lets see, this is my choice, go fishing, diving, swimming, and ride my bicycle, or go move stuff from here to there? Some choice!
