The funny thing about wealth is, no matter how much you earn, you never feel wealthy. I was making a high income in Australia but so were all my peers so I just felt normal (actually unsatisfied would be more accurate). When I moved to Singapore (and ultimately Hong Kong) I was making many multiples of my previous Australian salary but felt average (unsatisfied) yet again because the goal posts had shifted and all my new peers/friends were making mega-bucks. Its never enough, and you never feel satisfaction.
Now I'm 'retired' and in Thailand trekking the dhamma path. I'm making less money now than I did as a 22 yr old grad...and I feel richer than I ever have
