Emotions are a driving factor in most of the things we do. We are more dependent on our emotions than we realize or care to admit. Understanding the correlation between the way we feel and the way we act can empower us to use our emotions to push us towards the lives we want instead of the lives we are living.
Are there times when envy or Jealousy can be a good thing? Yes! Envy or Jealousy can be good if they spur you to positive action. You can harness the energy from envy or Jealousy to get what you want.
We only want more things if we are not happy with the things that we have. So the first step to overcoming envy or Jealousy is to become satisfied with what we have. When you appreciate the good in your life, you no longer need other people’s things.
Usually, when someone is envious, they focus on that feeling of envy and allow it to guide them. They become obsessed with the object of their envy and work to get that item no matter the cost.
