💰 More money, or at least a pay rise, I deserve it!
Yeap! You definitely might deserve that pay rise, but driving for more pay and more money in life does not lead to more happiness. This one blew my mind 🤯 Past $75,000 you don't derive any more stability or satisfaction from money. In fact for every $1 more you earn, you think you deserve an extra $1.40! Our minds are made to quickly set up new reference points based on now and those around us so the hype from money doesn't last very long. In fact, you winning the lottery, or losing a leg to a terrible car accident after a year leads to roughly the same amount of happiness. Crazy right?!
