    Are there times when you get a little envious of other hubbers who get a lot of comments and views?

    It's a bitter truth that not everybody gets to be successful in Hubpages (or at least, not yet). So, have you encountered feeling a little envious of other hubbers success? And how do you deal with it?

    Believe it or not, I do not envy. Much more I swear myself for not doing enough to reach the same (at least).

    I wouldn't say that I get envious exactly but sometimes I wonder how some of them do it.  I know it depends a lot on the quality of your hubs but some people seem to be extra popular.

    I don't get envious, I get inspired and excited by the fact that it is achievable! The hubbers who have great successes have worked hard for what they have achieved and they are proof to everyone else that if we too work hard, our efforts will bring positive results!

    Although I have to admit this hub has me in envy 34000 comments!

    I actually take the time to read those hubs and comments, to see what I can learn from people who are successful here. Usually the hubs speak for themselves and I'll comment myself and follow the person. There are many better writers than me out there, and I'm always very flattered when any one of them leaves a comment on one of my hubs. It's great to meet with great writers and read their work, it can only improve mine and contribute to my own success which surely only comes as the result of a lot of hard work.
    So my answer is no, I don't suffer with envy. I use it as an inspiration!

    No, I really am not envious because I am not really aware of that other hubbers are doing.  I  guess I am not that community minded. I hub hop, do my own work and give little thought to other's success or failure - although I wish them the best.

    Haven't felt envious at all. Some have already said that some hubbers are more popular than others which is probably true. It's the same in life, some people are more popular than others but that's mainly down to their personality.

    I am new here so I read the work of the successful and attempt to learn from them. I put a great deal of effort into my hubs and hope in time to find an audience.

    i just look at them in awe but not necessarily feel envious. Subconsciously, I develop a mindset to improve my hubs to get to that perfect hit.

    Im happy for whatever success I achieve and feel likewise for other hubbers. We as a whole should focus on our triumphs and share others. Its what being a community is about.

    I don't have time to feel envious. Time spent feeling envious is time not spent working on my own hubs or any of my other projects.

    Ah, yeah sometimes that is a pain in the mind. So what I do is try to see why they are so popular and well liked, maybe even follow their hub and learn from them or something. What can you do? Improve my language skills, improve my keyword picking skills, non-stop improvement, kaizne theory.

    I am still new here, but getting jealous already.
    My solution is to ask a lot of useful questions and write good articles and hope I get many comments.

    The hubs with lots of comments are well written and interesting
