Be Happy For Others
Comparison to others is an act of self sabotage - Iyanla Vanzant
Confessions on the journey. I have been angry for a few weeks and it seems to be getting worse. Why? Comparing myself to others. Yes I have been doing that. I have been seeing a few peers doing their thing on their journey. Some doing great things, some doing wonderful and marvelous things and I was becoming angry and at times jealous.
I have learnt that jealousy happens when you want what you believe other people have and it also happens when you are not happy with your present situation so rather than take the time to do the work, that time is taken up being angry and comparing yourself to others.
I have also learnt that it is a normal feeling however our responsibility - ability to respond- is the difference in taking it positively or not.
So I have decided to use it for a good and get off my bum! To work, have faith, believe and push to realise the dream and most importantly to let go after I have done all that I could knowing that the Universe usually has an even bigger and better purpose for all of us than we can ever imagine.
I also vow to be happy on others' success because there is room for all of us!
