On Jealousy, Competition and Selena's Fresh Style

Monday, October 19, 2015

Today I served on a panel at the JWE Conference for women entrepreneurs and spoke briefly about competition and jealously, which is something that I've personally seen eat way at some of my friends and peers. And here's (in the words of Oprah) what I know for sure

We need to STOP comparing ourselves to everyone else. We need to stop looking at what everyone seems to be getting...whether it be a job, money, love, followers on social media...whatever. We cannot see the entire picture! We need to keep our eyes focused on what we want and go get it by being our best selves. The only person we should be competing with is ourselves!

So how do we beat the green monster? We rebel against it by wishing our competitors success. When we send out love and positive energy to those we feel jealous of we are rising above pettiness and inviting love and positive energy back into our lives. People can feel it and will be attracted to us even more. 

There is enough success, money, and love for everyone. Feeling bad and jealous will just pull us down and keep us from being the best that we can be. So wish your competitors well and then soar to your success. Because as a good friend once told me, "No one can ever replace you, and it's you that your followers/customers want."

Next time you feel jealous or left out, stop and send that person a little love. Whisper "I wish you only success."

Try it and see what happens to your life.
