You earn a lot more than most people if you have a high income. But high salaries don't always mean more money in the bank. As your income goes up, it takes self-control not to spend more money on your wants. You won't get richer by buying a bigger house, a luxury car, or more expensive vacations. Lifestyle inflation is summed up by the old saying, "The more you make, the more you spend."
