Envy: Daily Inspiration: June 29, 2012

Services for Real Estate Pros with U.S. Financial Funding, LLC

Good Friday to you!

Today’s word is Envy.

Wikipedia defines envy "as a resentful emotion that occurs when a person lacks another's (perceived) superior quality, achievement or possession and wishes that the other lacked it."

I don't necessarily agree with that entire definition.  Envy, to me, is not always resentful.  Many times if I see someone with something (material) that I would like to have, I can be envious of that person for having it without being resentful that that person has it.  I also don't feel that the other person should lack that possession or achievement.

There's a good chance that person deserves what they have and for good reason.  If they don't deserve it and they have something, oh well.

“Envy can be a positive motivator.  Let it inspire you to work harder for what you want."

I love this quote: “Envy can be a positive motivator.  Let it inspire you to work harder for what you want." and I could not agree with it more than I do...

Have a Happy Day!
