When you see other people’s successes, what is your reaction? Are you jealous of what others have or are you happy for them? Your response is a good measure as to how you are living your life.
Are you excited and grateful for who and what you have in your life? Or do you feel like you’re missing something and you can’t have it?
Our reactions give us a lot of information about ourselves.
When you are happy in your own life, you will be happy for others in theirs as well. That’s not to say that you can’t strive to have more, be more or do more. It also doesn’t mean that you feel bad about goals that you have. It only means you celebrate other people's success because you know that if they can achieve a goal of theirs, you can also.
Next time you scroll down your Facebook newsfeed, check-in with yourself on how you react to hearing good news from others.
Remember also that the grass is not always greener on the other side. It is greenest where you water it. Just because someone has something that you are striving for, it does not mean that they are happy.
Not sure what you want more of in life? Why not come to one of our monthly workshops. RSVP at 613-761-1600
