Is Envy a Good or Bad Thing?

Posted on 24 March 2013 by Andrei

There’s (almost) always someone who achieved better results, has better domains, you name it.

Envy is perfectly natural because none of us are robots.

But is it a good or bad thing?

Well, it all depends on your attitude.

What do you do when you find out that someone is doing better than you?

If that information motivates you, if it makes you want work harder and smarter, then there you have it: envy can be a good thing.

If that information makes you upset and if seeing that person come back to your level would make you happy, then the opposite is true: envy, in your case, is an extremely bad thing.

I’d say that based on these two attitudes, there are two broad types of people:

1) those who want to reach or even exceed the level of the person they found out is doing better than them

2) those who want to drag the person in question back down to their level

If #1 describes your attitude, good for you.

If not, then at least acknowledging that your attitude needs to be improved is a starting point. It won’t be easy, it won’t be pleasant but if you manage to improve your it, you’ll do better in all areas of your life.
