Jealousy is not a good characteristic, but it is a natural emotion that we have to face every day. You cannot avoid it, but make sure you can live peacefully with it. Unfortunately, too many people have ruined their career just because they’ve created for themselves a lot of pressure to be like other colleagues. Effective and sustainable way to grow in the career is to be yourself, which requires you to know who you are, what you want and how to bring out your hidden talents. The mentors and superiors can guide you but ultimately you have to manage yourself. Here are 5 ways jealousy can destroy your career path and why you need to remove it:
1. Loss of competitive spirit
It's hard to compete when you're too focused on being other. You will lose the passion and no longer crave to discover your hidden talents. That's why most people do not be promoted in their careers. They said to themselves as "cannot compete" because they just spent time on observing "competitor" rather than took advantage of the potential to increase their competitiveness. When you are blinded by envy, you cannot see the opportunities in front of your eyes.
2. Difficult to have an advance
How you can get an impetus to work when you do not focus on your differences. The first step in your career requires you to invest time and focus on an appropriate strategy to optimize your skills in the work and liberate the hidden capacity to become the best version of yourself.
3. Limit of affiliate network
We cannot build the respect and trust of other people (to support and help each other) on the basis of jealousy. How you can build a network when the jealousy prevents you. Think of the advantages that you can share with everyone, this is better than the jealousy and remove them out of your network connection.
4. Loss of confidence
Frustrated and feeling unable to believe in yourself is one of the factors that impede success in your career. If you do not trust yourself, you will limit your progress.
5. Not satisfied
Jealousy is a state shows you are not satisfied. When jealousy becomes a virus killing belief in your value, it is difficult for you to move forward, even in work or life.
There will always have people better than us, but each one has its own value. Life is not for you to compare but for you to know yourself learn from each other.
