Envy Into Energy

Posted by Tom Locke on August 14th, 2018 filed in Business, Education, History, Life

Being satisfied and thankful for what you have is key to feeling fulfilled and being happy.

However, it’s natural to feel envious or inadequate, to want more and more.  It’s human nature.

When we compare ourselves to others (and social media has brought this to the forefront) there are always going to be people who (seemingly) have more than we do. If you’re happy with who you are and what you have, enjoy it. Celebrate it. Appreciate it. Accept it.

The only other way to see it is to be happy for those who have “made it”.  Or, use their success to fuel your desire to accomplish something that is meaningful to you (e.g. lose weight, start a new business, etc.).

In short, turn envy and feelings of inadequacy into energy – then engage it.
