The Rural Mindset Podcast™ Episode 27 - A Deeper Dive Into Turning Jealousy Into Motivation


On this episode of The Rural Mindset Podcast™ I talk about how a lot of the people that we look up to and admire started out as average people, but worked their butts off, how some of them even started as the underdog and how they got to where they are now.

When we are jealous of people we can often forget about the fact that they have been doing this longer than we have. We forget about the fact that they spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours practicing, and we often think that they just somehow got there overnight.

We can utilize this jealousy or envy as motivation as fuel for the fire.

  1. Ask them for help or if you can pick their brain
  2. There are podcasts or videos for just about anything
  3. You can take a course from the person you admire

When we are acting jealous, we can keep ourselves in check by asking the questions:

  1. Is this behaviour helpful?
  2. Does this behaviour make me feel good?
  3. Does this behaviour get me closer to my goals?

The chances are that the answer to all of those is "no," and that you need to work on your emotions and utilizing that emotional energy in a more productive and beneficial way.
