Today’s Words of Wisdom clip from motivational speaker and TV host Mel Robbins really resonated with me. I hope this pushes you today and beyond.
In the video, Mel discusses that nasty little demon called jealousy. When you find yourself getting jealous of someone else’s success, it really doesn’t have anything to do with them. It’s about YOU. It’s about you feeling insecure or unfulfilled in your own life in terms of your goals and dreams. It’s literally your dreams screaming at you to stop watching from the sidelines and get in the game.
I’ve been there. Though I was happy for the successes of friends, it was hurtful to me that I hadn’t yet reached my own goals. It was a wake-up call that I needed to revamp my mind and my work. However, a delay is not a denial. You have to just keep persevering until your goals become reality. Which is easier said than done, but I just take things one day at a time. I’ve also worked on being genuinely happy for others, finding their success as motivation that mine would eventually come. And it has!
