As iron is eaten away by rust, so the envious are consumed by their own passion.
Jealousy emerges in different flavours, blinding us to take harmful action that breeds negativity, blame and lethargy.
In teams, it robs of valuable time, saps aspirations and crushes imagination. It hinders innovation of our society, finally of the entire country.
Instead of evaluating ideas for its merits, we get comfortable with comparing people, passing blames and dropping the ball. No one takes responsibility to get things done. Trust is rusted until we eat each other out.
Opposite of jealousy is working on myself. How I become better each passing day physically, mentally and emotionally. When I am happy and confident, naturally I’m inclined to spread the same to people around me.
Jealousy is the rust of the mind. Look out for it.
