Back when I was a teen suffering from super #lowselfesteem, I always wished I was someone else, living a different life.
Thinking back, I can laugh at my own silliness. Because actually, there is NOTHING to be jealous about! More than that, when we get caught up envying others, we lose sight of our own #success.
Instead of getting drowned in envy, try these 4 steps to turn it into positive action:
STEP 1: Pinpoint What's Making You Feel So Jealous
When you feel a pang of jealousy, take a moment to figure out what it all might mean. #Reflect on what’s missing in your world. Do you wish for a better #job? Or crave healthier relationships?
Let jealousy show you the way.
STEP 2: Turn Jealousy Into An Opportunity To Learn From Others
When there’s something I want, I’ve trained myself to shift out of “jealous lurker mode” and into “student mode.”
Jealousy can be turned into motivational fuel, inspiring you to study and train more precisely, more intensely on your #skills. Or perhaps, simply try something new to achieve the result that you want.
STEP 3: Recognise All Their #HardWork
No one is magically good at everything. Recognise that everyone starts from ZERO (we’re all born as babies knowing nothing!) Successful people have invested lots of time, energy, money, and sweat to get to where they are today.
Remember this to avoid unfairly comparing yourself to someone else.
STEP 4: Turn Jealousy Into An Opportunity To Reflect On Your Own #Strengths, Skills, And Desirable Assets.
Skinny women yearn for Marilyn Monroe-esque curves. Curvy girls wish they could slim down and look like a runway model.
So many of us crave the opposite of what we have! It’s almost comedic.
We all have skills and strengths that other people find enviable. But when caught up in a whirlwind of jealousy, we fail to see our own gloriousness.
In the end, #selfacceptance is a key #happiness factor💛
Do try these 4 steps whenever you feel yourself being pulled into a toxic comparison trap and regain #innerpeace quickly.
Always believing in you,
