Success isn’t limited

Being jealous of someone else’s success is a waste of your time. The fact that they are successful does not mean that you can’t be successful too.  They are successful at being themselves.  You are different.  Be yourself.  Being jealous of someone else is childish.  They haven’t taken away your toy.

I know people who are jealous of other people for losing weight.  The fact that another person has made the time to exercise and worked up the discipline to eat well does not take away from your ability to do the same.  The more time you spend getting mad at another person’s success, the less time you are spending on creating your own.

Perhaps you can learn something from the other person’s story that might encourage you.  Perhaps you might learn a new way of thinking that will make it easier for you to get healthy. Their success can be the springboard for your own.


About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.

    This is true. We don’t take time to stop and think about that because we are too focused on other people when we need to be focused on our selves.
