You also have to realize that what you speak about, you bring about. This is true whether you’re talking to yourself or talking to someone else. So if you’re jealous that someone has more money than you and you focus on tearing that person down by saying things like, “I’m glad I don’t have that much money because I don’t want people to steal from me” or “I’d rather be happy than rich,” you’re telling yourself that you don’t desire money and therefore, you won’t have more money. So instead of tearing the other person down, you essentially are hurting yourself.
When you realize that acting and focusing on your jealousy is a sure way to hurt your opportunity to live the better life you deserve, you will never allow your jealousy to ruin your relationships with other people and you will begin to live a better life. This is definitely easier said that done but if you are focused on achieving this goal, you will eventually accomplish this behavior and life will be more enjoyable.
