49. ARE YOU ENVIOUS OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE? - Jack’s Life Lessons For Teenagers - Jack Lookman #teenageinspiration #forabettertomorrow #ireo


Teens should learn early in life the negative consequences of feeling envious of those, who achieve success. Although it is  normal to be inspired by the accomplishments of others, letting envy consume you, might impede your own development and well-being.

First and foremost, it is important to understand that, while envy is a normal human emotion, it may be harmful if unbridled. Envy over someone else’s accomplishments might result from inferiority complex, insecurities, or competitive feelings. Rather than allowing envy to fester, channel your resentment into drive, to pursue your own ambitions.

Also, realize that each person’s path to success is distinct and that it is unhelpful to compare oneself, to others. On the road to success, every individual encounters unique obstacles, disappointments, and chances. Celebrate someone else’s accomplishments and draw inspiration from them for your own path, rather than harboring resentment toward them.

Understand that there is enough room for success for everyone, and that it is not a limited resource. There is still room for you to succeed, even if someone else has achieved success. Adopt an abundance mentality, as opposed to a scarcity mentality; concentrating on your own development and potential, rather than obsessing over what other people have accomplished.

If handled with humility and self-awareness, jealousy may be a very effective lesson. Make the most of your jealousy by taking some time to reflect on why you are jealous and what you can learn from it. Maybe there are things you can do better in your life, or objectives you can create for yourself depending on what you admire or like in others.

Finally, learn to be grateful for the opportunities you had, and the things you have accomplished. Focus on your accomplishments, strengths, and the progress you’ve achieved; rather than what you lack. Having gratitude helps you see things more positively and change your mindset from one of jealousy to one of appreciation.

In conclusion, even though it is normal to be jealous of those who achieve success, letting envy control you, can be harmful to your own development and well-being. Make the most of envy to enjoy other people’s successes, work toward your own objectives, and develop thankfulness for your own accomplishments. Teenagers who adopt an attitude of plenty, humility, and thankfulness, can transform jealousy into a driving force for good and flourish on their own special path to success.

Thank you very much for your time.
