This news story came across my desk and impressed me as the new definition of “having it all” by having “less.”
A 6-figure income millennial quit when he was asked to layoff 41 workers and put his name at the top of the list.
(This is a very different method of leaving a job than the 4:30 a.m. “I Quit” viral video.)
Do you know of anyone who would do that? Could you?
Although 100,000 might seem like lots of money to lots of folks, according to Bankrate, its really not a big deal anymore. I guess this “quitter” is a case in point.
Fortunately, he learned the way to discover wants vs. needs and has created a way to deal with them both in a new lifestyle. Rather than super-size, he minimized his possessions for maximized peace of mind.
Although income is usually the standard measure of affluence, money does not define us.
If you’d like to know how you measure up to the Joneses, you can find out the median income per U.S. household here. But, bear in mind that 42% of households have two income earners; making some households’ income levels higher than personal income.
Does a higher income actually mean you’re rich? Not so, according to Fox Business News. There are reasons a 6-figure income won’t make you rich.
To be, or not to be (rich) is not the question. The question is whether or not you believe in scarcity and lack, or an abundant universe.
Financial resources only magnifies whatever we already have become. Fortunately, there is at least one millennial who has become happier.
