My dad def makes more then me. I make more than my mom. But the one thing that my dad passed to me (he was never really around and my parents divorced when i was 6) was the money isn't the goal. Work until you make enough to get by and try to have a flexible schedule and try to enjoy your life as much as possible.
If i make half of what my dad makes but can come home every day and raise my future children and take care of my future wife i consider that to be a bigger success then anything he could provide monetarily. All i want is a Camry, a small house, a wife who loves me and kids who appreciate responsibility and hard work....and sports wouldn't hurt
I agree with your def of success. At one point when I was younger I probably wouldnt have but I turn 30 in a few weeks, been married almost 3 years and we are trying to start a family. I use to say I waned the luxury car, nice townhouse or loft in the city but even if I can afford all of that its no longer important to me at all.
But I do make more than my folks.. on the flip they didnt have student loan debt that they have to pay back forever.
