Do you ever get a little envious of your friends and colleagues? It’s hard not to when they achieve something you want for yourself.
Of course you don’t want to be a jerk about it. And yeah, they probably do deserve it. But that little green monster inside of you screams out in his whiny little voice:
But what about me? I deserve it more than they do!”
It’s an embarrassing admission. You don’t want to be this way. But the urge is there, and instead of being 100% happy with your friend or colleague’s success, you have a tiny fire of resentment burning inside.
You tell yourself to just get over it, to stop being a jerk. And then the green monster on your shoulder says, “you’re not being a jerk! That person is a jerk for taking what should be yours!”
Hey, we’re not going to tell you NOT to feel envy. It is impossible to avoid natural human emotions.
But we can tell you how to turn that little monster into a huge engine for positive change.
Listen to today’s episode for all the details, and be sure to download your free resource guide below to go from Envy to Excellence.

We can tell you exactly how to declutter your house. Step by step. Project by project. Every tip and trick we know. But guess what? It won’t do you a darn bit of good if you don’t have a good reason to declutter. You simply won’t do it without a better reason than “I should.” And next week we’ll show you how to find that reason (or give up on the idea and the guilt forever so you can put your energy toward something else). Stay tuned!
