Keeping up with the Joneses

"Keeping up with the Joneses" is a catchphrase in many parts of the English-speaking world referring to the comparison to one's neighbour as a benchmark for social caste or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to "keep up with the Joneses" is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority. Taken from Wiki

I hear this catchphrase a lot, but never seem to know where it came, till now. Don't we all, envy other people's wealth and material things. It takes a person with a huge confidence to look at the "Joneses", smile, and walk away with out the need to be like them or over take them.

I would know, right now, is a phase where everything is not going right. Everybody has that phase and sooner or later, one does get out of it. One just need to remain focus and follow the path they have set to themselves.
