Can you see someone else succeed when you are failing and be happy for them?
Until faced with this situation everyone will always answer yes.
“Yes, of course I can, always happy for others success and well-being.”
But when confronted with it, when someone else succeeded over you or did something a better way or was more recognized for the work they put in over you despite perhaps you having done just as great a job or put in just as much effort?
Will you still be happy for them?
Will you be able to put aside everything and clap for them?
In an era focused on the Personal Growth and Emotional Intelligence I have to believe that Step One starts here and starts by asking yourself that one question – “Can you be Happy for Others when you have Failed?”
If so carry on, if not, get there, otherwise you won’t be going much further.
