That is ONE of the issues - people only boast the end result which is what others envy. Nobody sees the energy and commitment that occurred before that. Nor the commitment to maintain that success. Its not a lottery where you buy a ticket, collect the winnings and take the sun all day on your yacht - which will also come to an end if that is the attitude towards the winning. Some people will chase the success at all costs (keeping up with the Jones') and fall flat because they are trying to do it the "lazy" way.
