Do you sometimes feel tremendous pressure to “keep up with the Joneses” in certain areas of your life? If so, what are those areas?
Write down in your journal exactly why you feel the need to keep pace with this imaginary couple. Be specific.

What do you think is the root cause of this fear in your life?
Perhaps you are someone who does not feel the pressure to keep up with the Joneses. In fact, you believe that you possess many things which Mr. and Mrs. Jones do not have. What are those things?
