Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
...Ohh,isn't this absolutely true of our lives?And, what a nice way to achieve it! Go reverse-by first being who we really are-but, is it really possible for us? Will we ever stop looking enviously at our neighour and then attempt to go one-up on them?
