How to overcome Envy

We all can’t be one thing. But we can be unique in a space with billions of people.

What is Envy? Wikipedia states: “Envy is an emotion which occurs when a person lacks another’s quality, skill, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it. Aristotle defined envy as pain at the sight of another’s good fortune, stirred by “those who have what we ought to have”.

or who wishes the other lacked it.

If you cannot have what other people have and you wish them failure, doom, or disaster. You will be wrong to act in this manner. An emotional intelligent person does not wish harm on another person, because envy is a disease, and if you allow it to grow it will destroy you.

Envy isn’t a tool you can use to grow as a person. Don’t be jealous of someones happiness, blessing, or joy. Your time will come. You can create a time for it to come. You can be happy without possessing materialistic objects. Happiness comes from emotional balance. You can have all the money in the world and not be happy if your mind and heart are weak.

Find joy in seeing other people succeed. Knowing hard work and temperance can give you the same result when you apply yourself.
