Most job tracks done properly with perseverance and patience pay well. (Dentistry, Biology, Computer Technology, Mathematics, Sports, or Performance Arts). There are some degrees or careers which pay lesser than others but if what you do makes you happy then I think you are wealthier than most.
The most important part though is to understand how to manage money. For this, I would suggest building a strong foundation of habits and ethics. This is important as it leads to spending less on bad habits (alcohol, gambling, or even junk food :) ). It also keeps you focused on the goals you want to achieve. Learn about assets, liabilities and saving. Ask elders around you how people make money(good investments or jobs) and how people lose it(bad investments, scams, bad habits, etc.).
