Each of us has some idea of what we need in order to fully meet their needs. We call this level of standards.
What is the "level of the norm" in financial terms? This is the amount that you think is sufficient for themselves for a certain period of time. Enough - this means that it will be enough to meet all current needs. And you know exactly what you are for less in any case does not agree.
What do you think, for what amount in our country hard to live a month? In 5000 rubles hard? Of course, especially not clear. When you hear about the amount of 5 thousand rubles a month, then you think: "Well, not a lot ..." However, the 32 million pensioners in our country not only to live on this amount, but also manage to save money or to give them grandchildren.
But on 15 thousand rubles a month, many students live without any problems. 15 thousand - it's normal for a student? "Probably OK" - you might say. - "Living as a people." Some adults live by the same amount. The salary of an adult, which is considered normal in a small provincial town of Cheboksary - 15 thousand rubles.
And that will be good? 50 thousand - well? "Of course, good" - say 90% of people in our country. In Cheboksary the one who earns 50 000, opens the door to any club foot. 50 000 rubles, you can not simply buy only what you need, you have already defined a choice of where to spend: rent an apartment, rent a car on credit, give the girl an expensive thing or something else. All, of course, is not enough, but more importantly, that the choice, in principle, already have.
And what's even better? What is truly inspirational? A man from a small town call the sum of 250 000 rubles. 250,000 - it's cool, it's a lot. The head rush bright picture stays on the white beaches of distant countries, expensive cars, fashion apparel ...
And in Moscow? And that in Moscow? In Moscow, the level of "normal" is simply raised to fifty thousand rubles. That's the whole difference.
But how much money is beyond desires? How long should I earn a month to do nothing need? 500 thousand, and perhaps 1 million?
Probably a million a month for many, very many - is the symbol of fabulous wealth, daily pineapples in champagne and Ferrari in the garage
So, we knew what about the numbers in the mind of a person associated with the concept of low, normal and very high income. Such a coordinate system with slight variations is in our minds. So we define what "good" and what is "bad».
5000 per month - it is bad,
15 - so-so, but acceptable,
50 thousand - it is normal and even good,
150 - excellent,
300 thousand - cool,
Well, 1 million rubles - "life is good»
However, let us abstract from what surrounds us, and look at the whole picture of the independent observer eyes. There are special people - sociologists who like to be a model of society based on various factors. So, here the sociologist would have been the next model, like the Eiffel Tower, that is smooth and evenly thinner needle-shaped structure with a very wide and thick base.
At the lowest level there is a lot of people with an income of no more than 5 thousand rubles. Next, slightly higher incomes will be 15 thousand, even a little higher - 50 thousand, far away and in a smaller amount - 150 and 300 thousand. Somewhere close to a million. And only a thin needle, consisting of people living outside the conventional level standards, soars skyward. Almost at the base of the tower is a common level of standards - 50 000 rubles, and that they are guided about 90% of our society
What is the difference between people whose achievements seem incredible? How do they do that quickly achieve what seems to others, it should take years or even decades? Why do they get to realize what the surrounding dare to dream?
The secret lies in the fact that these people are living with the feeling that the rate is somewhere above - not at the level of one million, two, or three, and above! What can fully meet the needs of others, for them is not sufficient. They were not enough. They crave more.
They may want the same thing, and the rest - a luxury apartment or a sports car, but the only difference is that it is not the ultimate goal, but only a passing phase. That is why sometimes they feel alien to other people in society. If they are trying to live by someone else's rules, at some point before his eyes as if an error message appears, System Error - something goes wrong. And they do everything possible to get out of this swamp.
The most amazing thing that the crowd, convinced that their level of standards is the only true, with surprise looks at such "black sheep" and calls them crazy. But quite the opposite ...
In the city of Cheboksary lived a guy named Oleg. He has his own, fairly large by the standards of the city, the construction business. Now he is building a monolithic high-rise buildings. Naturally, it was not always. Oleg hails from a small village in Chuvashia, you will hardly be able to find on the map. The first level of standards Oleg protested against rural reality, pushing it to the city. In construction it came, started to repair the bathrooms in ordinary residential apartments.
Rather than quietly enjoy reasonably good earnings for native village standards, Oleg wanted more - the fire was burning in his soul. After bathing, Oleg began to take repair and furnish apartments. Apartments replaced by offices, restaurants, shops and pharmacies. And then the repair was generally below normal levels. Rather than engage in decoration, Oleg wanted to build. He began to build buildings. But even at this stage, Oleg did not want to stop. He understands that all his success, which is so jealous Cheboksary friends, in fact only flea running. Its provisions level is still higher than achieved. Oleg did not calm down until it becomes one of the largest developers in the country and will be visible at the international level.
