Gather more information. Not everyone is as perfect as you make them out to be. Maybe they have a nice job but their relationship is not as fulfilling as yours. Or maybe, when you won that spelling contest they even had problems reading. Consider someone’s success in context and always see the bigger picture.

Compliment them. Yes, you heard right. This is a tried and true method when it comes to overcoming jealousy. The other person will appreciate your thoughtfulness and you might even get some pointers from them. Also, everyone has their struggles. You might be surprised to discover that they are also insecure or jealous because of someone else.

Stop comparing yourself to others. Other people’s success does not take away from yours. You can still have your own victories while letting others have theirs too. There is no need to become envious because you are not on the same level. Who knows, there might be someone who envies your success too.

Learn from others. They might be doing something right if they’ve got your attention and envy. There is a reason why you are feeling threatened. If you want to know their secret, study them attentively. Are you jealous of her figure? Find out where she works out or what diet she follows. Instead of being jealous and trying to tear them down, learn from them.

Do your best. In the end, this is what it boils down too. You cannot expect to be successful if you do not put in an effort. Admiring others and being envious gets you exactly nowhere. The ultimate weapon and the best revenge is to work hard in order to achieve success too.

In conclusion being envious has no palpable benefits. Focus on building yourself and becoming a person that others will admire.
