[b][/b] When You Say fulfillment, It should be note that when you do not ve money to take up your responsibility,Then It's Not, so Money, I meant Financial enrichment comes before Fulfillment before you can say You fulfilled That means You re Financially n Spiritually Enriched n You are capable n taking care of your responsiblity. So I believe Money comes first.

What *ills* have your mind contracted while trying to hit your

there are three MOTIVES for which we live:

we live for the BODY, we live for the MIND, we live for the SOUL. no one of these is better of holier than the other.

one cannot live fully in MIND without books (money) and time to study them. without opportunity for travel (money) and observation, or without interlectual companionship.

to live fully in soul, a person must have love, and love is denied fullest expression by poverty.

come to think of it, in other to live a fulfilled life, you must be rich.

I thin the best thing in life is contentment and it come with having what you want or wanting what you have. I believe the idea of comparing real MONEY with fulfillment should be left for the books. Money makes the world go Round so it is first priority, because fulfillment is having want you want, and if you want money then money it is and if you want to work then just work and don't get paid very easy. Frankly, money brings about the idea of fulfillment. Choose wisely.

I think that question is premature in the Nigerian environment. Remember that Economist who had a hiearchy of needs ( Marslow, I think his name was). people think of higher needs when the basic ones such as food, shelter and clothing are fulfilled. I Nigeria, many people are still trying to fulfil the basic needs. Fulfilment is still way off

Who cares about fulfillment in a job unless you're Hooker or a trick

where fulfillment is your prime goal and you're ready to lick anybody's behind to get paid

For me, I'm there for the money and shopping spree

i think eventually that fulfillment will produce (satisfactory) money.

i think the ability to reproduce money in ways one enjoys is better than landing a high-paying job for a few years.

Fulfillment and money is spouse to each other. As somebody said, it is only when the higher paid job is comparable to a lesser paid one that you can only talk or go for fulfillment, but if they are not comparable at all, you must opt for money, as long as our wants remain insatiable. Though, our inner minds will prefer fulfillment to money, but practically, money has proved to be more important then fulfillment. Zero money gives you zero fulfillments, that is, there will be no fulfillment without money. Money is the starting point of any fulfillment, but not applicable to divine matters.

Theory says- fulfilment

Reality/Practicals says- money

If you don't have money problems then opt for fulfilment and go for lesser pay else go for the money first.

At the end of the day a JOB is still a JOB and real fulfilment doesn't come from getting a job no matter how fat or thin the salary is because so long as u remain in a job it controls your time n your life and with time you get tired and start yearning for freedom. So while in a job learn what you can learn and gather as much pay as you can gather, then when you are set for fulfilment opt out of a JOB and run your own show.

Jim Ovia or a Zenith Bank staff who is more fulfilled?

Bill Gate or a Microsoft staff who is more fulfilled?

Like my billionaire mentor will say "there is no passion in poverty!"

I've said mine, you make your own decision.

Money is related to fulfilment. You may not be fulfilled when you dont have enough money to meet your needs.

@ Esss

In as much as I don't have any thing against what gives you fulfilment, infact most of them I desire, but your equating Heaven to money is fatal.

In an economy like Nigerian, you are fulfilled when you have money.

Fulfillment? Let's face it, who even has the luxury of contemplating it? Most Nigerians don't and won't

what with a lop-sided economy, Jamb, Nepa, strikes, strikes, strikes, limited jobs and opportunities,

Besides, all fulfillment springs from having a decent amount of change in the pocket.

Exceptions - Jesus, mother teresa

Rule - you, me, and the vast majority of us in this freakin planet

MT we're holed up in the wrong economy, let fulfilment wait, More quid to the Bank!

Hello everyone, would like to contribute my little piece because when I started out my career (in the legal profession) I got faced with a similar situation.

First, I'll say its a function of the particular individual. There cannot be a general rule in this kind of situation. In my own case, I knew I could use the extra money (particularly in areas like taking professional exams and going ahead with graduate studies).

I won't say I'm not fufilled in what I do but then I might have had more trips from my previous job.

In all, I have no regrets that I went for the better paying job. At the end of the day, the choice lies in the individual and his/her goals and aspiration and what they want from life.

It depends, let's face it, what do people really want in life, money-- there is no doubt about it.  Lots and lots of money.  It is only a few people will choose to make less money and fulfilment in the job they are doing.  Face it writer, if you are giving the choice to select from two jobs one pays you about $10,000,00 a month and the other $1,000 a month but the $1,000 dollar a month job gives you fulfilment whereas the $10,000,00 does not---which one would you go for. I know the answer will be the $10,000,00.  Eventhough it may not be a fulfilling job, human beings tend to look at what they can acquire with the money in addition to the authority and false sense of security that money gives. It is only on rare cases that people go for less paying job to fulfil their desire.

fulfillment is the ultimate but money is also important.

the fact you want to be fulfilled doesn't mean you'll live on peanuts.

U need to maintain your life and it will take money to do that,

afterall,money comes with a certain level of fulfillment.

However,if the money you are been paid is reasonable for basic up-keep

the job is such that would enhance your mental capacity

and long term dreams and goals in life, then I think that job is worth it.

You see, the two terms you are comparing are very relative terms. I say it depends on the individual.

I will choose fulfillment rather than money. But I wish you had specified the take home on both sides. But really fulfillment covers both the job and the money aspect. I tell you that if the money you are earning is not okay by you, let's say 50,000 in a place like Lagos and you enjoy the best of training, you won't still be fulfilled and this will be reflected by your search for a new job. Let's give these 2 scenarios. A young man earning 120,000 in a manufacturin comapny and another man earning 150,000 in a bank as a marketer. For me I would conveniently resign from the latter to the former becos; firstly I'm an Engineer and I believe that if I can get a job with a sustainable salary, I have no business to do in the bank. Secondly the nature of the job really counts, many people including you and I want a sinecure job( a well paid job with little responsibility) nobody prays for wahala.

So my guy, I think fulfillment encompasses both the money and the nature of the job. I can't leave a 150,000 naira job for a 20,000 naira job. It is madness. But if the money is comparable, then you can consider other factors.
