Forward Progress

There is no point being upset about someone achieving success in something we, ourselves, were unwilling to work for. 

We should be happy for them. 

Their hard work paid off and this shows us that ours will as well. 

We simply chose to apply our efforts elsewhere. 

Our eyes should remain focused on our own path and our efforts directed toward our next steps forward. 

Envy and jealousy are enemies of joy. 

Why waste our joy on someone else’s success?
