I’m not going to post mine here; I just want to know everyone’s opinions. As a sort of benchmark figure

I don't care about salary as long as I enjoy my job - which I do.

Covers all the essentials and I can save so it's win-win-win

On point..?

An on point income would be over a million by age 26.

Realistically, how many 26 year olds make that, though? Evidently not a great deal many judging by the average salary for a 22-29 year old in the U.K. being less than £30K a year

Not everyone can be perfect/on point. Chris Hohn was on point with his income of £323m last year. He was 54 though so the bar for being on point is very much lower for a 26 year old.

Average is very different from 'good' as it goes too.

Okay then, I shall settle myself with saying my salary is “above average” good enough for me

Which you knew from the stats already.

Mathew 19:24 might be of use to you.

You’ve just told me I’m not rich so that verse doesn’t apply to me

If that's how you choose to interpret the message in that passage then that's upto you.

I've heard that this verse is literally referring to a gate-thing known as the 'eye of the needle'

£55K - £75K for perm roles seems reasonable by that age. For contracts, higher.
