The grass is always greener on the other side. Keeping up with the Joneses. We have all heard these before, yet some people still don’t truly understand what they mean. While the moral of those particular cliches are to stop people from wanting what others have, many people choose to instead embrace their materialism and jealousy when it comes to getting the bigger TV, car or house, even if they do not have the money or need for it.

So instead of trying to fake it, why not do things that actually help you achieve your dreams? It won’t be easy, but it will be well worth it in the end.
