The Poor Love To Hate Other’s Success?

There are two types of people in the world:

  1. Those who hate the success of others
  2. Those who let the successes of others fuel them toward their own greatness.

Most people fall into the first group.

It's why we have "tall poppy syndrome."


Here’s my free tip for you:

Be in the second group.

That's the way the rich think, while the poor revel in the failures of others

Some people look at others’ successes and failures as a way to validate their own greatness.

They pick apart the reasons why certain people achieve or they relish the moment when others fail.

Both paths lead to mediocrity.

It’s easy to spot these types of folks because they use words like luck.

This is an ugly truth in life.

There’s a long list of people who would rather complain than actually do something about it.

As for luck, I've always thought that hard work creates good luck.

Take a quick assessment of how you respond to the success of others.

Does it discourage you?

Do you envy them?

Mental Success

Don’t allow yourself to be brought down by those hopeless emotions.

Instead, allow others’ success to fuel your fire to achieve your own level of greatness.

Today, pick out someone who is doing a great job and compliment them for it.

Muster up your sincerest praise and generously pour it out on someone else.

The sooner you’re able to recognize and praise greatness, the better chance you’ll have at replicating it.

And when you succeed, know that some people will hate you for it.

When you fail, some people will cheer.

In fact, there’s not a successful person out there who isn’t, in some way, hated for their success.

But the truly successful folks are the ones who can build something remarkable with the insults that are hurled their way.
