Jealousy and Success

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Some people will . . .

  • Always be jealous that you work smarter not harder
  • Find a way to excuse your success
  • Tell others that you are just lucky or that other people are just blind
  • Do everything they can to undercut you
  • Pretend that what you are doing will not matter in the long-run
Don't worry about these people. They're not the ones writing you checks.

Being awesome intimidates people. Be awesome anyway. As Marianne Williamson says, "There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you."
