The way I translate this message is that if you look at life from the perspective of everything that you lack, you are also coding yourself to be constantly wanting and it's really difficult to solve problems or achieve your goals when you're under duress. It's really easy to forget yourself when we have so many voices (inside and outside) telling us what we want and that what we have is never good enough.

I think it just means don't get so caught up in the future that you don't enjoy your present.

But I am under duress. That is literally why poverty clinically causes stress. Telling myself I am fine won't pay the rent.
