You don’t even have to make six figures to feel like you are successful! There is a specific amount for feeling the happiest in your life and another number for feeling successful in your career!
A new study out of Purdue University found that people are the happiest when they make between $60,000 and $75,000 a year which lines up with what other studies have also found in the past.
These researchers took it further, and they wanted to see how much money it took for people to feel MORE than happy! They looked at when people felt like they’d achieved their financial goals and they were SUCCESSFUL! The answer is $95,000 a year!
Researchers found that when people made more than that, it actually made them LESS satisfied because they started wanting nicer things that they really couldn’t afford and would compare themselves to richer people.
