Asian Consulting Bowl

Do Asians consider income as the most important factor for success? Compared to Americans? I consider Asians as a unique group here.

I would say yes when compared to western cultures. But it’s understandable since within 1 or 2 generations a large proportion of Asian families have experienced some type of economic instability where as western countries have had more stability. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs takes a while to re-adjust.

Think this is spot on, not just for Asians - a lot of my friends who are immigrants feel similarly. American families with established wealth and network bases might not have as much of a need for income or security

Not the most important, but it’s a tool that helps improve quality of life immensely and makes it easier to deal with life’s problems. So it’s pretty up there.

I think happiness and achievement are better indicators of success, but income can track closely with both

I personally don’t think so, but it gives most people a number to compare with others 🙄

At first I thought it was, but I think living a ‘good’ life where you can proudly look in the mirror and raise a family is most important. I’m thankful my mom told me that trying my best, keeping honest, and taking care of family / friends is most important. She told me she’d rather me not be wealthy and ‘good’ vs filthy rich and well - filthy...

What do you mean compare to Americans? Pretty sure everyone used income as a success factor in some way. If not income then job title or other things, which typically equate to higher earnings.

Of course, if it's not the most important its second. Why else would we do it?

May not be income, but for sure wealth and high net worth when it goes in multi millions
