Does watching others achieve success today bother you?
Why if so, or why not. Please be truthful and to the point if possible. (Maybe write a hub to expound on this question in the form of an answer, but utilize the answer area's option for creating a hub in conjunction to do so.)
Not at all, buddy. It excites me and energizes me. It's a big world out there and there is more than enough success to go around. If I have the talent then success will come eventually. In the meantime, I love it when my friends do well. The only time it bothers me is when someone without talent hit it big....but that's a fluke more than the norm.
Not at all. I am glad for anybody that can achieve success in any way. There are many more forms of success than just money. God bless them.
What a strange and yet perfect question. Why it should be a question hits right to the heart of our being. This emblazoned sin of covetousness and jealousy will always be with us. I look forward to hearing answers.
For me it is a hit or miss thing. Sometimes I am irrationally jealous and sometimes I am proud of a fellow earthling who does well.
Those I mentor do better than I, that should be the whole point, but alas sometimes it is not.
No, I consider it to be motivation. They made it up there, so I can too. Either by chance or by effort.
Great honest answer lburmaster, I feel the same and its actually what I wrote in conjunction to this very question on Facebook. Thanks for answering, I will credit you on my new Youtube series I got started for these HP Q&A sessions. Nice answer!
Truthful? You want truthful? I can give you truthful. If we change the question to: "Does others' success, especially that of friends, throw you smack up against your own inadequacies, laziness, and shortcomings?" I would respond with an resounding "YES"! I had to write a whole little children's story to help me cope with my own comparison to others. In "Polly and the Measuring Stick," Polly is brought down to the ground when the garden club comes to visit. There are "oooh's for this flower, "aah's" for that flower and no "oohs," nor "ahh's" for Polly. To survive she recites the mantra, "I am what I am and I know what I know and I measure just ME to see how I grow." Easy to write a children's story about not comparing your success (or lack of it) to others' - hard to live out in real life.
No; not at all. Just as they have achieved success, so can you. In fact, you can use their success as motivation for your own success. It's often that other people's success drives us to be our best. It's called admiration.
Not at all. The first thing I would feel is wow, so admirable... followed by "how did he/she do that?".... Surely, I'd be happy for them and definitely would start wishing I can do the same:... Thank you for the question and blessings to you.
Not at all but I would praise them for such achievement they have done for they have been blessed. And this would be a challenge for me to pursue of what I want in life. If others can do why can't I, I will think positive, strive more and make difference of my life not just by success but by faith. Everyone has different edge of reaching success he may be blessed today but someday I will be much more blessed for everything God will provide I have faith and have believe in myself for if we ask according to his will it will be supplemented.. ask the knowledge,courage and you will receive of what your hearts desire.. Just dont forget to praise above.
No it doesn't bother me at all...I'm happy for them and truly wish them nothing but the best.
It is up to me to make myself, and my life a success...no one else is responsible for me. If I'm unhappy with my life than I need to change it...focusing on what others are doing isn't going to make things any better for me in the slightest.
Yes, success of other bother more then our failure.It is common for all.
It depends on what you mean by success. If you mean it in terms of accumulation of wealth, power, and status, then the only thing that bothers me about it is how shallow the measure of success is.
Otherwise, no not really.
Watching others achieve success, if done ethically, gives me a happy feeling inside. If there were more happy people in the world, or people who lead meaningful lives, perhaps there would be less suffering and more thoughtful and conscientious decisions made for the good of all beings and the planet.
I'm usually happy for other people's successes. I'm rarely plagued by envy, but I've discovered when it happens, the best thing to do is to tell the person you envy them. They'll nearly always respond with some information that kills your envy. Once, I told a flirtatious female co-worker I envied her. Coming from South America, this was the way she was raised. It turns out she was divorced (for good reason) with a young daughter to take care of - on a salary not much greater than mine. Furthermore, her ex-husband quit his high-paying engineering job and took one at a fast food restaurant to avoid alimony and child support.
I wound up being on the receiving end, which means there's something to karma. I was at snowboard camp, and wound up dancing with the pros. Later on, my counselor and a roommate told me they were jealous of me. I responded with, "Then you should have joined in! We girls are outnumbered 3 to 1 here; you should be taking advantage of it!" When I met my counselor there the following year, her attitude towards sexism in the snowboard industry had completely changed.
There is no need to tear down someone because you're jealous. Usually, if someone is successful, that's a sign that you can do it too.
