Impress others? Why?

Little children frequently ask why. Adults don’t ask it
often enough. I guess we want to look mature.

Setting goals and working to achieve them is mentally
and physically healthy exercise as long as achieving
those goals makes our lives better. This is where the
“why” part comes in. If a little kid asked me why I need
a new car, a bigger house, a management job, or other
money related goals I might have to think carefully
about the answer.

If I am trying to impress others I am shoveling hard in
an attempt to fill a bottomless pit. It can lead to misery
instead of happiness. Respect from others and
increased income can result from improving my
attitude and habits but are not the goal. Creating self
respect and a sustainable comfortable life should come
first.

If little children are enjoying life more than I am the
question is why?
