Why Envy?!

Why Do We Hate Other People's Success?

All of us have encountered envy before! We all want the best. We want to have lots of money, we want to have a high paying job, we want to drive the fanciest car, we want to live in the biggest house,  we want to look the prettiest....etc. We want it all! Thus, we tend to hate on the success of others. This is totally wrong in every sense of the word. We need to learn to be happy for other people when they achieve success because it is meant to be their blessing not yours. Your time will come, and when it comes no-one can take it away from you.

Here are a few tips I've come across and have been using in my daily life (I use these tips to help me overcome envy):

1.  No matter how bad you think your situation is, there is someone out there who is in a worse position that you are. And no matter how much you have or make, there is someone who has more or makes more. Therefore, do your best in whatever you do and be happy with what you have.

2. Do not hate the success of others. Rather take away a few lessons from their success to help yourself grow and become successful yourself.

3. Don't assume that other people's lives are better than yours. Sometimes it's just an illusion. There are plenty of people who do not show you the ugly side of their lives. Remember people always flash around the good stuff that they want others to see. They may be dealing with some really bad problems and we just have no idea.  

4. Keep things in perspective. It's okay to want more. But don't get so caught up in your desires that you forget about the things you DO have. Do not take for granted the things you have accomplished.

Rather than feeling envious of someone's success, step back and take a look at your personal life. Look at all that you've accomplished so far and know that you have a lot going on for yourself and are blessed to have it. To have more than what you already have is a bonus, not a necessity

Have a blessed day......N stay true to yourself!!!
