You Won The Lottery!

You Won The Lottery!

We all have bad days.  One thought that will put it in perspective is that you are likely a 1% earner by world income standards.  According to recent reports, just $32,400 per year is enough to put someone into the top 1% category worldwide.  Throw in air conditioning, modern medicine, the Internet, food, and other luxuries, and we are living far beyond the 1% in mankind's historical context.  

So when you have having a rough day, just remember that you won the lottery.
