    She’s a slim and pretty Mum whose married to a hunk who is charming and witty.  The kids are beautiful, perfect and smart and they all live happily together in a beautiful home in a lovely area.

    The nightmare thickens – they are all really lovely people. You can’t even hate them.

    Jealous?

    According to an article in today’s news we are living in an era where it is deemed possible to have it all, so when people we know have something that we secretly wish for, we suffer from

    Failed Potential Syndrome

    aka, ENVY.

    A common response to the above scenario therefore is, why her and not me.

    Effects your lifestyle too!

    The situation also extends itself to one’s career where many felt that their current profession is boring and wished they had their best friends job.

    Personally, I’ve always felt that there were two types on envy.  The healthy envy, where another persons situation seeks only to inspire you and, the extremely unhealthy envy, which eats away at you and causes you to attack,  gossip about or put down those you are jealous of.

    I think if it’s that important to you, anything is indeed possible and is more about doing something about your own unhappy situation – no matter how small.

    In truth, it’s so much easier to sit there and moan about and to come up with a billion reasons as to why you are where you are or doing what your doing.

    Getting your Groove Back Tip:

    Stop busying yourself with other people.  We were all born with our own unique gifts.  Figure out what is your unique gift and focus on that.  You’ll be amazed what you’ll discover about yourself.

    And no, it’s never too late to make a change (that’s just another one of your excuses).
