Stop wasting time on what author Dan Gilbert calls "The Hedonic Treadmill," where you're always looking at what others have, seeking more and more, spinning your wheels, and getting no life satisfaction.
Remember: The grass is always greener on the other side until you get there and see it's AstroTurf. Symbols are never reality. Someone might have amassed material success and fame, but that doesn't mean they're happy. So, don't go judging a person's life by the cover. You must read get to know a person to know if that person is truly happy. After all, there are many seemingly successful people who seem to have it all, but were coming undone. Not one of us is on the same path. You can always save a lot of time in your day by making sure you're staying on your true path.
