There is a disconnect between income and net worth. Earning more does not create contentment. Often those who make more spend more and foolish people almost always spend more than they earn, no matter how much! At the same time, those with less commonly save and amass wealth.
Many people think making more will make them happier; however, there is a disconnect between money and happiness. If there is a correlation, it would be a bell curve with the happiest people in the middle.
