I stopped wondering how people live the lifestyle they do. Some people can truely afford it and others are in over their heads.

I work in the IT field. My wife and I both make decent $$. The only debt I have is a SMALL mortgage on a VERY nice house.

Life is all about priorities. The reason I don't have a more expensive boat is NOT because I can't afford it. I have a lot of fun with my boat and I don't think I would have any more fun if it was bigger, faster, etc. etc.

This is an easy one. Dad owns the boat and the others I maintain for my buddies. I do have a good job as a union Heavy equipment Mech. , and I live pretty simple, But my Divorce knocked me down a bit, I'm about a year away from being back on top. If I got rid of the race car, and the couple of Harley's that might ease things up.

Ditto. You'd be surprised at how many people out there are barely paying their note and have to put gas and other expenses on the credit card. I know guys that live like ballers but its all an illusion. I only care about my own finances, work on increasing net worth/cash flow and decreasing debt and figure everything else will take care of itself.
