Good day guys, how are you feeling today? I trust that you're having a great day. Let's quickly review yesterday's article.

The future is as little as the next minute because you don't know what it has for you. It can be the next hour, day, month or years.

Therefore, we should endeavor within our power to make sure that we utilize effectively each and every day and try to get the best out of it. To use our day effectively,it starts by knowing and setting our priorities right and also knowing the right actions to take in order to use our time well.

The matter of using time effectively is something that you'll need to teach yourself because it's more practical than theoretical, no one will sit you down to teach you how to use our time in the best way. You should know the activities that matter to you most in a day and focus your energy on them.

Everybody has the same twenty-four hours in a day to use, how you use it is left for you to decide, whether on productive activities or unproductive ones.

You can take time to evaluate how you've been spending your time to see whether you've using your time wisely or not.

Oke of the characteristics of a wise man is the ability to make the most use of his time. Time is a precious gift to everyone; it is one of the common privilege that everyone has both rich and poor, small and great. No one knows how long he will spend in this world, but people who know how to organize their time will achieve more things in life than those who just use time carelessly.

And one way you can use time effectively is by improving your mental faculties and acquiring knowledge. Acquiring knowledge is one of the most productive ways to use your time because the more you know, the more you will be able to do. Therefore, you can consider making use of your time to gain new knowledge.

Special thanks to my sponsors both old and the ones planning to, subscribers both old and those that will subscribe now, also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you, I do not take it for granted.

What is jealousy? Jealousy is a feeling of anger, hostility and resentment caused by the belief that someone else has something that you do not. If someone receives something you have always wanted, it can feel like the world has turned against you. The recipient seems lucky and you may even feel like they do not deserve what has been given to them.

However, there are no lucky people in life. Everyone has had to work for everything they have achieved. Even if someone has not worked for it, they may have inherited it from their parents. Nobody deserves anything just because they are good looking or charming.

Jealousy is closely linked to envy and comes from an attitude of disappointment and bitterness. Envious people do not want to see anyone else enjoy success. They would rather see those around them fail so they can revel in the failure by comparison.

The opposite of jealousy is gratitude and we should all strive to be more grateful for what we have. We need to look around and realize how lucky we are to have a roof over our heads, food on the table and people around us who love us unconditionally.

People are often averse to complimenting others because they think it makes them less significant. However, that is not the case. You should not be jealous of others, instead celebrate them. You do not have to be friends with everyone, but you can wish them success. It will make them feel good and build goodwill.

Creating a culture of celebrating others is one of the keys to being happy and content. It has been proven to improve productivity and worldviews. So much so that the philosopher Aristotle suggested that praising others makes us more attractive as well.

If you find it hard to compliment others on their achievements, that is a sign of jealousy. The most miserable people in life are filled with jealousy. It eats away at them and steals their joy. They always think of the things somebody else has that they want, which in turn leads to resentment and strife. A remedy is to start celebrating other people’s successes with them and make a point of complimenting them.

Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.

It's a destructive emotion, it has the potential to suffocate a happy partnership and break down the trust that was there. Jealousy can cause you to experience a range of feelings, from insecurity and suspicion to rejection, fear, anger or anxiety.

If people start working and learning about them selves, then gradually these envious qualities might be reduced at some level. When I was reading in your post that people think, appreciating others make them less significant. My cute little brain immediately sends me a message that it actually makes you more attractive, and then in next paragraph I saw that you mentioned about it coming from a great philosopher ARISTOTLE. Have an enjoying day Jerry

Jealousy is quite inevitable. I mean if you love someone so bad, so of course you will get jealous especially when you both don't have time for each other but he can get in touch with his friends instead of you.

A jealous person can never be happy. They are not happy about the success of others but are more jealous. Sometimes someone is a high-ranking official in his workplace due to his own merits. Even then the jealous person gets angry at him and tries to do it by being angry at the successful people.

We need to change our attitude. Everyone should be encouraged in their work. All anger, jealousy should be removed from one's life.

One toxic trait I have encountered in one of my friends before is being jealous of many things. I accepted all the things she says about something or someone negatively but I do not condone her attitude. I will always tell her, that she deserves it or there's always a time for everyone's success. Not until I became her topic for our other friends. I realized then, that a jealous person has always something to say. They hate to look at the reflection that they're not and don't have. Beware of that kind of people they will always find a way to drag you down and that's crab mentality.

You're very right, they always have something wrong to talk about. Very soon, she'll talk to others about her friends too

Being jealous of others' achievements is a sign that he/she is not happy or satisfied with her/his life. To avoid being jealous, we should strive for more for our lives to be better like them. It's not yet too late. We should also make use of our time wisely. 😊

Time, proper usage of time is very important, as the word says: time is money.

What you said about jealousy is completely true, they fell envious and thus their mouths becomes so heavy to wish other people well... Maybe I have this trait... I need to start working towards a change, so I can be attractive like Aristotle said. Thanks for sharing this Jerry.

A true definition of successful person is when he/she's happy seeing someone achievements and success. A person will be a successful one when he/she already sarisfy of what she had and grateful by the others life of achievement.
