Question: If you haven’t accomplished much in your life and you are surrounded with successful people what is the best way to not seethe with rage and envy?
Answer: Envy is good!
If the society is set up properly, and those other, successful people use their talents, achievements in a good, positive helpful way, then positive envy can help the “less successful ones” to pull themselves after the “more successful ones”.
And if it is applied in a perfect, mutual, reciprocal manner, then we create a society that can operate as a rocket with a never ending power source, catapulting all of us to ever greater progress, achievements.
The key is to change mutually exclusive, ruthless competition to a constructive, purposeful, mutually inclusive competition, that benefits all instead of benefiting the individuals at the expense of others!
