Those who are believed to be most abject and humble are usually most ambitious and envious. The envious man grows lean at the success of his neighbor.
Instead of being critical of people in authority over you and envious of their position, be happy you’re not responsible for everything they have to do. Instead of piling on complaints, thank them for what they do. Overwhelm them with encouragement and appreciation!
But we’re born as children and we look at the world with open eyes… And we don’t judge and we don’t betray. We’re not jealous. We’re not envious. We’re not even weary, which is a danger also as kids. They have to learn a certain amount of awareness.
Nature, more of a stepmother than a mother in several ways, has sown a seed of evil in the hearts of mortals, especially in the more thoughtful men, which makes them dissatisfied with their own lot and envious of another’s.
Keep yourself on top but feel envious to do your better and challenge constantly that you have yet to come up with your best!
