any man who is so happy that he does not think about wealth, is truly wealthy, even if he has nothing.

I have to agree with this sentiment. I have a relative who has much more money than me and he always asks why I am so happy.

I think it's great both of you feel so pleased with your situation. I really do respect that.

Being satisfied is one of the best goals to reach in this lifetime i believe. I think Thais feel that way but I may be wrong

I try to reach satisfaction daily and hope I achieve it some day. I try yoga as a method for happiness. and satisfaction.

And Gary Hart, years ago, was sitting at the back of Monkey Business with a big smile. 555

What's it all mean?

8.5m to be wealthy? why not 8.5b?

I only referenced the article I read about the USA "standard" OK let's call wealthy now ฿8.5 That sounds more attainable and realistic to me. But of course I'lll still have to look for bargains on agoda. 555

I would not consider having ฿8.5 Million wealthy if that is what the 8.5 refers to, but my MIL and BIL would.

For a Thai (normal upbringing, 8k Job) that 8.5 Million is being on the top of the world, on the other hand for some people that amount is peanuts. So it all depends who you talk to.

You need enough to buy Freedom for yourself and loved ones. Financial freedom where work becomes a option not a requirement to enjoying the lifestyle you desire.

That's wealthy in the financial sense.

One very rich guy once said: "It's better to cry in an Rolls Royce then in a VW Beetle" wink.png

This is where spelling becomes important.

Sorry about that, but excuse me because English is not my native language !wai2.gif

How much can one spend in a lifetime? Life as one continuous holiday is a bore. How many bedrooms do we need to sleep in? Where is the satisfaction in someone else doing everything for us? Do people sit in their bank vaults counting their money ever week?

To me satisfaction comes from having enough to get by on, having a loving partner, food in my stomach and a great satisfaction in having done a good job with whatever I am doing, be it fixing the plumbing, decorating the house or seeing my football team do well.

The simple things in life can bring more satisfaction and happiness in life, such as Yoga or even a walk in beautiful countryside.

I can be as happy sat by the beach and watching the ladies go by as some millionaire sailing his yacht.

Life is what we make of it and your satisfaction will come.

No point in having a lot of money if it takes 84hrs a week, every week to make it.

To me wealth is having a good amount of money and time to enjoy it.

What do you consider wealthy today in Thailand?

Same as I consider anywhere in the world I guess.

I consider wealthy as someone who is truly happy

with who they are & are healthy. What they do day to day

& how they feel about what & who surrounds them.

All the rest really is fluff.

I have lived my life working to live & not the other way around.

It served me pretty well in the happiness department as I feel

I have lived much more than worked.

Of course it goes without saying that there are folks who love work &

for them that is a good thing I guess.

But I have also known closely millionaires in the US that literally could

not sleep for fear of who was trying to rip them off.

I am not saying there are not happy millionaires.

Just that not all with money are always happy.

Money can bring both happiness & stress.

Lucky are those that have it balanced.

If you feel the need to ask the question then you certainly do not have enough money to qualify.

So why worry about it.

Enjoy what you have. :D
