It is commendable when someone is striving to better them self. This may be through private study, improving one's skill in their trade, pursuing a higher education, or being a diligently employee hoping for a raise and maybe an advancement on the job.
In contrast, there are those who are never satisfied and think life has someway cheated them. They look to others who seem to obtain and accomplish more then them and they wonder why. It is not always because the more successful have sought their “fortune” on the other side of the fence, but faithfully pursued what they already had.
We cannot just sit and wish to accomplish worthwhile goals in life. Instead, we must pursue our dreams to a more promising future.
