It is a fact that you will become happy with an increase in your salary but up to a certain limit. Here, we will give some examples to understand this bit better.

  • Suppose, you are earning $8000 a year. With this money, you will not be able to sustain your livelihood very well and will be depending on others for procuring money. You will not have sufficient cash for purchasing medicines or food items either.
  • Now imagine that you are generating $80,000 every year. In that case, it will enhance your lifestyle to a great extent and you will be able to purchase a car, have some nice food, pay your medical bills as well as energy bills every month, and have a nice romantic life as well.
  • On the other hand, in case you are earning $800,000 every year, you will be living in a bigger house and you will be flying in first class all the time. However, you are going to do essentially the same things and your sex life will not become bitter either. On the other hand, you will be required to work much harder for generating the extra cash and you will not find much time to come in contact with your near and dear ones.
  • Having said that, we like to assert that earning $8 million every year is basically impossible and absurd.

In case you want to increase your happiness, then make sure to help other people since we have been wired to help others. If you go to a movie or have some nice food items in a posh restaurant, it will provide you with happiness for the time being only.
