    I would be happy with £50k at peak. Although my career is guaranteed to pay more which is sad because I would have to pay more tax I would like to move abroad and pay less tax and live in a hot country, Dubai sounds Ideal as do most Asian countries.

    I don't really care to be honest. Ambition doesn't need to be directly correlated to how much you want to earn.

    How on earth could someone survive on £15k? I'm on £30k and I spend most of what I earn.

    No car
    No mortgage
    No fly clothes
    No socializing
    No technology
    It's grim but doable.

    Well long term that seems somewhat unambitious and I would assume if that is to be the case, you are going to be relying on a partner to bring in a much higher income than you?

    As hard as it is to get a job I think you should aim a little higher!

    Of course, I might have better phrased that as a question as to how someone would be satisfied with £15,000.

    Yes I would agree with that, if this is a serious thread then I can't understand why the OP has such little ambition in life

    I know this and I already discussed that it is perfectly possible, however my point is why do they not have any ambition to better themselves. In my opinion it is important to always try and improve in every area that you can

    I really would not mind paying so much tax if our government was efficient. Our government allocates resources so inefficiently.

    I can live on 5K. 7K with a car I reckon I should be earning around 45K/annum. At my current 12.5K wage, I have quite a bit to spare
