Hello!!! Everyone, today we live in a world in which no one is satisfied.No matter how good is our life, we never get satisfied with it.We always want more.In brief, “we can say that we want everything”.
And if we does not have any particular thing no matter of how big or small, precious or worthless, beautiful or ugly that thing is.“If we don’t possess that thing then, we became jealous of that person who has that thing”.
So what is jealous?
feeling or showing an envious resentment of someone or their achievements, possessions, or perceived advantages.
Generally, people consider jealousy as a bad quality or emotion.People say that if you have jealous in you then, it might ruin your life.”Because if you have jealousy in you then, you never have mental stability”.And this happens because in jealousy we always want things which we don’t have.
But according to me, all the progress today we have made is because of jealousy.The credit of our anything and everything is goes to jealousy.
And the people who say that if we have jealousy in us then, we never have mental stability.But according to me, “sometimes we get jealous of that mental stability also”.
Let’s assume if you see a person with great mental stability and peace.Then what you feel? You definitely feel jealous of that person.And why you feel jealous? You feel jealous because “you also want that type of mental stability”.
So, we can say that we also get jealous for that thing also, that we are not getting is because of jealousy.
But according to me jealousy and mental stability have no connection at all.”Because jealousy means we want that thing which we don’t possess and other people possess”.
And wanting something is called “wish”.So, it is a wish and wishing for something is not bad.We always wish for things whether we are jealous or not.
And by this, we can say that jealousy is also a type of wish.
So, if we don’t wish for something or we don’t get jealous of something.Then, we never gonna get progress or success in our life.So, “now jealousy becomes an important key to success”.Right?
Some people don’t agree with me.They say we become successful and progressive “because of our hard work and creativity”.
I totally agree with you.But where did you get the motivation to become progressive and successful?
“Because doing anything needs motivation” no matter what you are doing.Whether you are going shopping or you are going in space, everything needs motivation.And if you look carefully then you are gonna find that you get motivation from the jealousy.
Let’s try to understand this by the following example:-
Assume that If your colleague in office has the best salary, bigger house, and the better car then you.Then what you feel? Then you became jealous of him.And you think “I am also like him then, why he has everything better than me”.
And in that jealousy, you try to find out that how he becomes so successful.In this way you became creative and then, you work hard to apply those creative things that how he become successful to become like him.
And by doing all these things in some time we also became successful like him or even more than him.So, “we get satisfied here but now we became jealous of some other colleague of ours who is more successful than us”.
So by these, we can say that jealousy is that emotion which never ends and so our progress and success.
“It is the nature of human being to get jealous”.You cannot control it, you cannot hide it, you cannot subdue it.And if you try to do any of the above things then, your playing hide and seek with nature.But remember in the end, nature wins all and every game.
“Some people say jealousy is bad but having healthy competition is good”.But according to me, no competition in the world is healthy.And the competition itself means you are jealous of that person whom you want to compete that’s why you are competing with that person.
So let’s try to understand this.But first of all, what does a competition mean?
the activity or condition of striving to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others.
So, if you are trying to win over someone or trying to establish your superiority over them then, you are definitely jealous of them otherwise why you do this.
In students, there is always feeling of “competition”.And this is because they always want more marks than others.They are always jealous of marks of other students.
If you ask any student that what is his/her goal in school life or in college life.Then maximum students say that “their ultimate goal is getting first place in their class, school or college”.
“They did not want to get good percentage.They just want that their percentage should be better than other students”.
If a student gets 95 percentage but another ten students also get 95 percentage.Then he did not become happy or satisfied with his percentage.
But if that same student gets 90 percentage and gets first position in his class.And the student who got second position in the class gets 85 percentage than, that student who got 90 percentage becomes happy.
So, he does not get happy when he scored more marks.But when he scored more marks than other students despite his own marks are less as compared to previous ones he becomes happy.
And why this happens? it happens because he is jealous of other students.
So, competition is just a fancy word for jealousy.
And according to me this jealousy or competition is good.And I am saying this because “in this jealousy you feel happy if you’re achievement is bigger then the achievement of the person you are jealous of”.
And if your achievement is smaller then, you try to make it big because of jealousy as we talked earlier.
But you people are thinking that in that example of that student he gets low marks and he becomes happy.And if this happens every time then, he cannot accomplish things as of his potential.
But who cares about accomplishing things if you are happy.Because in this world you cannot accomplish everything.”But if you are happy then, you have accomplished everything”.
So, jealousy is the road to happiness.
Generally, people say “we became jealous when we love someone or hate someone”.But according to me love or hate feeling does not have any connection in jealousy.
If there is husband and wife and both works.But if the wife earns more money than husband then, the husband becomes jealous of her.”He loves her but he became jealous of her that, how much money she earns”.
So, we became jealous of a particular thing, not people.
We not only become jealous of things of peoples but we also become jealous of nonliving things also.
Workers in factory become jealous of the machines of the factory.”That this machine is making 10 products per hour and we are only able to make 4 products per hour”.
And if those workers become jealous then, they work hard.”And by this jealousy they are able to make 6 products per hour”.
So, jealous means productivity.
But that’s not it, “we also became jealous of even ourself”.By thinking that in my younger days how much energy I possess, I have the ability to do anything.But today I cannot do anything.
And we also became jealous of “time” also.Like we say that college time was the best time of our life.But today we are just living just because we have to live.
So, we became jealous of only good things.
Some readers might be thinking that I am just trying to present jealousy with sugar coated and not presenting an actual side of jealousy.But if you look carefully then, this is also the side of jealousy.But we always only look at the negative sides of things.
Jealousy is definitely negative emotion.”But if we try we can channel it in a positive way to become successful”.
