What does it mean to live in the top 2% of wage earner in the United States. You hear all the time that ‘money can’t bring happiness’ or ‘money isn’t everything’ The problem with those statements is that it’s usually people that are satisfied with what they have or are unable to make that kind of money that are uttering those statements. Money doesn’t bring happiness. That very well may be 100% true but being poor certainly doesn’t bring happiness and if I had the choice between the two (and I do) I certainly won’t choose to be sitting in the kitchen eating dog food after I retire.

The top 2% of wage earners in the United states makes over $200,000 a year. This includes families with one or two wage earners. We are halfway there and I don’t plan to stop until I have made it into that 2%. Being driven enough to succeed often calls for hard work but the rewards are security for myself and my children.

Do you have what it takes to be in the the top 2%?  Take the test and find out. Even if you aren’t sure it takes only five minutes of your time. Sometimes the difference between success and failure is being willing to work a bit on self improvement both physically and mentally. Walk. Run. Read a book every couple of days. Ask yourself questions and if you don’t know the answers, FIND THEM. Be willing to set goals and push yourself until achieve those goals. It’s not rocket science and it doesn’t take a college degree or piece of paper to make you successful, you just have to be willing to take chances and learn from your mistakes.
