Thanks for your answers in advance!
Get ready. These posts have a habit of some pretty hard answers.
The way you word your question is quite telling.
Answer no 1. Dont give up the day job.
It makes no difference at all how much you "want to make". The reality is if you are asking a question like this, using phrases like "I was wondering how much should i be aiming for everyday to just live an average life" you are almost certainly not "equipped" to make a living at poker. Dont take this wrong. But were you mentally and skillfully ready - meaning enough knowledge of the game and all that goes with it, as well as the experience needed - you would not be asking this.
Still, here are some articles you may find interesting.
