Here are two more traits you must eliminate if you ever want to find success.
Ready? Let’s boogie.
#3 — Envy
The definition of envy is:
“A feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by and in conjunction with desire for the possessions or qualities of another.”
The key words there being “a feeling of discontent and resentment.”
Of course, this is not a state in which you want to be.
You should feel HAPPY and ENTHUSED for the other people. Be it for their possessions, their qualities, their achievements, or their accomplishments.
The more you feel a positive association towards others, the more open you’ll be to receive the same.
Swap envy for admiration and the tides of success will surely change.
#4 — Jealousy
Much like envy, jealousy will get you nowhere.
The difference with jealousy is that it makes you feel threatened by another person.
For example, you’re in a relationship and your partner is chummy with someone from work. They’re a member of the opposite sex. You don’t like this and it makes you feel threatened. That’s jealousy.
The problem here is two-fold:
- If you trust your partner, who the fuck cares? And…
- Oftentimes, you’re getting all heated up over nothing
This makes you act foolish towards both parties, which is something all 3 of you don’t deserve.
So stop getting jealous.
No one is out to take what’s yours.
Focus on showing more love and improving your relationships.
That’s what really matters.
Okay, another one bites the dust.
One more of these before I end the series.
And that little ditty will cometh tomorrow.
Oh, and when you’re ready
