“Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?” ~ Marcus Aurelius
People in glass houses should not cast the first stone.
Take the log out of your own eye first.
Here’s a hack I’ve learned: When I feel a twinge of envy, I stop and try to identify WHY. Is this something I would like more of in my own life? If yes, what concrete steps can I take to put me on the path to getting it?
If I feel the need to be critical or tear someone down–this is not an instinct I naturally have, having actively tried to reduce these urges in myself because I understand you don’t have to step on others to get where you want to go (unless you want to be part of the club of assholes who step on others)–again, I like to pause and analyze WHY.
There is usually a reason that has very little to do with your nemesis and a lot more to do with YOU.
USE this desire, this emotion, this feeling, not to REACT, but rather to focus your FUTURE PURSUITS.
