By now, we probably all know that jealousy is born of insecurity and insecurity means not believing in your own value.
When we don’t believe that we’re worthy, we’re threatened by assumed competition, and try to them down. People do this both in relationship and in business. But this kind of behavior makes you look worse. Jealousy is a very obvious insecurity issue.
So I propose something new: support your competition. It makes you look like the better person and shows that you believe in yourself. If you’re strong enough to not be phased by competition, this behavior makes you even stronger!
Of course, you might have to fake it till you make it. So, despite feeling incredibly jealous and insecure, you’re going to have to pretend that you aren’t bothered until you really, in fact, aren’t! And in the meantime, you’re going to spend time making lists in your head or even on paper of all the things that make you valuable and worthwhile.
It is YOUR job to understand that you are, and always will be, good enough. No one else can do this for you. You have to make the time and effort to truly understand your worth.
Everything in life becomes easier when you make this essential discovery.
Good luck! Let us know in the comments how you are going along your journey of self discovering and how you’ve dealt with jealousy in the past.
