This is one rich proverb that depicts the difference in people and their level. As we aim and work towards becoming better and getting to the level we want, we should not forget that we can only give what we have. If we know the value of hard work and discipline, then we know that we will only make it further when we maintain a standard of living that is equivalent to our level at a point in time, and keep our focus on our aim. Trying to maintain a standard of living higher than our capacity to impress people who are already there, will only end up causing us regret and most of all distract us from achieving the height we have been projecting.
