Day 7 is here, and I'm over halfway done with my #12daysofresolutions.
Today is a resolution that is more "food for thought" that can be followed by action. Throughout my training and coaching career, I have heard a fair share of jealousy stories. Some people are not jealous people, but they envious of what others have achieved.
Promotions, job opportunities, gigs and pay raises, whatever it is, praise the person for their achievement. I believe we are all sent here for a reason. And for whatever reason, some lives blossom quicker than others and some people must learn countless lessons before they are rewarded. Just know that you are on your path to success and the more you compliment others, the more you detach your happiness and self-worth to promotions, job titles, gigs and pay raises.
Sometimes our "lack of success" is a blessing in disguise. Maybe your co-worker Susie, got the job promotion and sure, it may look good on paper, but now Susie must attend evening dinners with the CEO.
This is about gains and losses. Susie gained an excellent job title and a slight pay raise, but she loses her time. Meanwhile, you lost a job title, but you gained your time back. So while Susie is at work on a Thursday evening, you are either at happy hour or spending time with your kids.
You see there are pros and cons, light and dark and "good and bad" in every situation. So this resolution "forces" us to see the light in every situation.
