“Virtually every day of our lives, we’re trained to lean towards something we don’t have, which essentially trains us to be dissatisfied with where we already are.” (Read that two or three times, so it really sinks in.) Based on hundreds of conversations I’ve had with people about money, I’d say it’s probably more common than not for us to wish we were in better financial situations, which makes us hate the ones we’re currently in. We want less debt, more savings, larger salaries, bigger bonuses and so on.
