Be Happy for Other People
Do you ever feel envy or jealousy? I think we all do from time to time. I have to fight this myself. Envy and jealousy come from a scarcity mindset, which tells us if they have success/luck/happiness, we won’t (or will have less). We may feel we deserve success more than the other person.
When our mind is preoccupied with being jealous or envious, it is unavailable to make good things happen.
On the flip side, when we can feel genuine happiness for others, we are open to possibility for ourselves.
The more we link other people’s good fortunes to frustrations about our lack of success, the more we hurt our chances for forward movement.
Be happy – really – for other people. In doing so we are able to learn, grow, and be ready for opportunity when it knocks.
