        Hi Guys and Dolls,

        Just heard about a survey that was talked about on the radio and the results were interesting. The question was.........

        If you were offered a promotion at your job with a nice pay raise would you turn it down because you had to work with a boss or people you didn't like or stay at your current position with lesser pay and be happy?

        Most people said they would turn the promotion and pay raise down.

        What would you do?

        I would never take a job that I don't enjoy. Well, if my monthly salary would be like $100k then why not - I would work few years and earn enough to live without working but spending 8hrs/day, doing things that you hate just to earn some more $.. nah.

          Tough question Lips.  I probably would take it if what I was currently earning wasn't enough to support my family and the pay rise was enough to make a real difference.  I think that would be the only reason I would take it.

          No easy answer here. someone once told me, its not just black + white, u got grey too and inside the grey u have different shades also.
          I would only do it for family if they really needed it
          But I do find that people who like their job are more balanced in general.

          Even though they know that happiness is more than just a good job and money, in reality people do what they think it's right even if it brings more stress and negativity. They are not thinking about what it is that they actually want .

          I like to think that I would reject such job offer or even quit.

          I think it depends on the financial circumstances. If I can make it all work with my current job then I would choose to be happy over a raise but if I was struggling then I would probably be able to get along with just about anyone to get the job done.

                        Here's the way I look at it.  I made good money in the hospital I was at,  loved the people I worked with,  didn't like the people I worked for.  Big difference.  I always said I would take a slight cut in pay to be happier  (Of course this is provided that one's salary or wage is enough to live on, etc.)  in my job  and not have to deal with the managers we had.      Our department would get managers or directors that were so intimidating when you came in it was actually affecting my health.    I was getting anxious and depressed every time I had to go in.  ( 3    twelve hour day shifts a week).    Bottom line,  always choose happiness.  If not,  it could affect
          your health,  your family,  it just goes on and on  and even though you may make more money,  you'll be miserable.

          It is crucial to work what you like, but sometimes there are offers we cannot refuse because of good salary. It is always the best solution to find an optimal for both salary and satisfaction.

          Happiness. I left 100k a year as a mortgage consultant to go back to school so that I could wrestle mean dogs for a living. But you're not sacricing if you're following your calling in life and you've come to terms with and know the implications of your decision. Now I work as a Registered Veterinary Technician and I make a difference for these animals every day. They can try to bite me, urinate on me, poop on me, I don't care. At least it's not a human!

          Eight years ago I gave up a job paying $32.50/hour.  I worked from home 4 hours a day, 5 days a week.  I loved the job, but couldn't take the stress working for the woman that hired me.  It was her own company and basically I did everything to keep it running.

          Yes, the money was great, but I couldn't take dealing with her anymore.  She was a mad woman with no common sense.  It was her way or the highway even if her decisions were truly wrong. 

          I got used to living on less money.  It was worth it for my sanity.

          So my answer is no.  I would not take the promotion if I wouldn't enjoy my work day.

          Depends on the raise I guess, but normally I would turn it down and stay happy
