Money can't buy happiness, but how much would it take to
make you feel successful?
survey conducted by CareerBuilder found that the answer for most Americans
might be less than you'd think. According to the survey, "the vast
majority of U.S. workers - 75 percent - don't feel that they need to earn six
figures in order to be successful."
Twenty-eight percent of respondents said that a salary of
$50,000 to $70,000 a year would give them a feeling of success. Twenty
three percent put the number at less than $50,000. Only one in ten said
that it would take $150,000 or more.
Men were twice as likely than women to say it would take six-figures
for them to feel successful.
