WHO ARE THE JONES ANYWAY?
A 2016 International Book Awards Winner
At one time or another, most of us have heard the expression “keeping up with the Joneses”, referring to a legendary family that has the world trying to keep up with them. They’re mentioned in tweets, movies, newscasts, articles, blogs, books, and more. They’re mysterious. They seem to be everywhere but no one appears to have actually met them. Why is that?
You have likely heard of them too, but have you met the Joneses? We have and we would like to introduce them to you. We think you’ll be just as surprised as we were by who they are.
People all around us are trying to keep up with the standards of the Joneses. They are sacrificing and struggling, trying to live by some fictitious standard they don’t understand while thinking they are just one purchase, one accomplishment, or one compliment away from true happiness. They don t realize that chasing the world’s promises will only lead to disappointment and discontent.
If you want a better life than what you have today, your answers will never be found in the world. You must realize that life should be about who you are, why you are here, and how you live your life–your own life, not the Joneses or anyone else’s.
Think of the possibilities if you started living your life more intentionally, doing more of the things that matter most, and less of everything else. Could life be less hectic? What if you spent more time doing things today that could lead to a better tomorrow, instead of just trying to survive each day? What if you could live more simply, yet more fully?
In Who Are the Joneses Anyway? you are led on your own “Joneses Journey”, asked relevant questions, and encouraged to be brave enough to seek the answers. The real-life approach and practical resources will help you get from where you are to where you want your life to be as you begin thinking less about your “what” and more about your “who.”
