The only way you can be a failure is if you choose to be one.
Do you think more money makes you a success? Well... let me tell you my friend... I make more money than most of my college friends BUT I feel a lot poorer than most of them... Money is just a tool... it might be nice to have it BUT it doesn't guarantee your happiness.
The only way I got to feel rich was when I used this tool to make other people happy... to enrich their life... and guess what... you can enrich other people life even without money...
Making some sad friend smile brings me more wealth than a bonus to the salary.
If you want to feel wealthy and prosperous try to enrich others by any means you have at your disposal...
And one more thing.... 85K? I think a lot of the people in this forum think "wanna trade places?"... to give you an idea... my mom, after over 20 years as an accountant at some random city hall is making around 3.6k per year...
