“If you’re reading this, you’re probably better off than the vast majority of people in the world. It means you have your own computer or smart phone, or at least access to one for use. In Mexico, where I live, 30% of people make $30,000 MXP or more per month. That’s about $1700 USD or an annual income of a little over $20,000 USD. And, given the cost of living in Mexico, that’s a good wage. Not great, but good. But 70% of people make less than that. Some families earn more like $2,500 MXP ($140 USD) per month or even less.
Great, so now that you feel bad for being spoiled, you may be wondering why the hell is this useful in your quest to ditch your day job? Well, by focusing on what you have, you will feel and live more richly day-to-day, knowing how fortunate you already are.”
