Envy. It’s one of the seven deadly sins.
It’s a feeling that I get from time to time. Especially when I feel like my life hasn’t been going all that well.
Seeing others’ successes while I feel like I’m barely making it out there kills me a little inside.
And I know I shouldn’t feel that way.
Most of the people I know have worked hard for that success. They were also better at me at keeping themselves organised and playing to their strengths.
That’s probably what makes me feel worse. That somehow I couldn’t work as hard, or organise myself, or play to my strengths. These are things that should be in my control, yet couldn’t make it.
I’m over the fact that my business didn’t make it. But now I’m unsure whether I could make another one work.
One thing for sure, I can’t continue just working where I am right now, or even for someone. I’m not generating enough wealth that way. It’s just not doing it for me.
And the envy… well, I need to get over that. Perhaps I need to fall off social media a bit. Or, start doing the work necessary to create my successes.
Again, I have the power to do what’s necessary to get out of my rut and become the success I know I can be.
Time to stop wallowing in my fears and disappointments, and start taking action.
Now, if only I can figure out what those actions are.
Or perhaps just start, and let’s see where this road takes us, shall we?
