Keeping Up with the Joneses

Trying to keep up with the Joneses is a never-ending chase.

While it’s reasonable to desire something better or more exciting, don’t let your desire for what others have bring about dissatisfaction with what you already possess.

When we are not secure with who we are and what we have, we psyche ourselves into believing that acquiring certain things will bring us greater acceptance.

In reality, we end up spending money we don’t necessarily have to please people that are not impressed.

Putting up a false façade based on what we think others are impressed with reveals the insecurities within us.

It’s your perception of you that matters most. Trying to see yourself through the eyes of others is wasted energy.

When you start to accept who you are, you’ll attract others that reinforce your empowering beliefs.
