5 Ways to Transform Jealousy into Drive and Determination

How do you handle someone else’s success?

Do you applaud and take joy?

Or perhaps there’s a little envy behind the scenes.

Don’t fret if there is, it’s pretty common.

5 Ways to Transform Your Feelings

And you can transform feelings of self-doubt and jealousy…

And turn them into drive and determination for your own success instead.

So let’s look at 5 ways you can do just that.

1.  Awareness of the Cause

Jealousy, intimidation, envy?

These emotions are actually opportunities to take a good look inside yourself.

Let them shine a light on what might be missing in your own life.

Be honest with yourself so you can then move on and really do something about it.

2.  Believe You Can Too

Just because someone else is successful doesn’t mean you can’t be too.

There’s plenty to go around.

You deserve success just like anyone else.

But you have to embrace this truth first.

3.  Become a Sponge

If you’re feeling a little green-eyed, switch from jealousy mode into sponge mode.

Become a student and learn everything you can about how that person achieved their success.

Most people are happy to share the lessons from their journey as long as you’re willing to listen.

4.  Make a Plan

So you’ve got a goal, and if you took notes in Step 3, you should have some good advice too.

I recommend figuring out the smaller, more manageable baby steps you’ll have to take along the way.

But don’t just leave them there on a to-do list. They might stay a long time. 🙂

Make sure you actually schedule them and push yourself to get them done!

5.  Recognize All Their Hard Work

There’s really no such thing as an overnight success.

Behind every successful person is consistent hard work and sacrifice.

They persevered, overcame obstacles and never gave up.

So there you have it.  5 ways to transform feelings of jealousy and self doubt into drive and determination for your own success.
