Humbling

My brother shared this link with me yesterday, The Global Richlist. It's humbling to say the least - my line of work is FAR from being glamorous and high-paying, and I often grumble and make jokes about it! But after looking at it from this perspective I really am incredibly thankful.

I'm willing to take a guess that most of us are in the 10% of the world! It makes my heart sad to think that 90% of the world is living with (often times) way, way less than I have.

Check it out - what'd you think? How do you rank?

Wow... I had to enter mine twice..It said I was in the top 1% of the world! Crazy, and definitely makes me think when I complain about my job and money?!

Lauren said...

Hmm... I really wonder how accurate this is???! I entered mine twice too, and I am also in the top 1%. I wonder how this would compare in just the US alone?
