Why do you think people get jealous of other peoples success? I'm usually so happy when someone gets a great job, or buys a beautiful house. I love it when someone wins the lottery who just lost their job or were working a job but living paycheck to paycheck. Why do you think people are like this?

I think everybody has this attribute its just the way how we deal... Its better to be happy all the time because if someone else is successful u can't help it except pulling him/her down which is the worst thing & the proof of ur weakness. If u want to be successful just concentrate on ur goal/aim & there is nothing we can't achieve...

I believe being happy for ones success is better for your karma and your health. Being jealous of others success brings negative feeling which in the long run is not good for your health. Thank you for responding.

i am glad for other peoples sucess and the ones that win the lotterys i try not to be jealous of people that have more than i do. i could always use more but i get by with what i got and always have. i have done without a lot but it is for a reason that i don't have more.if i had more i could help out people that didn't have things they need. i have no reason why some one would be gealous of the ones that work hard and have more,but i know there a lot of them out there.i know a few.

I don't know the answer to this. It is one problem I don't have, it seems such a stupid waste of energy that you could use to attain your goals yourself.

Getting jealous is common thing in human being.Most of the people feel jealous because of other people success.Sometimes jealous works for your success also.When you started feeling jealous you think why cant i become successfull person.Its good to have jealous at this point.But bagstapping other becoz of jealous is very bad thing.You are bot suppoes to say any wrong words with whom you feel jealous.

It's simple to understand that. We have different attitudes and characteristics that's why some people got jealous, envy on some other big achievements. Sometimes this can't be avoided by normal people...thanks

some people get jealous of others success because they want success only to be theirs.Its not only they feel jealous but they comment over others success cheaply and critize their success without knowing how much effort one has to put to succeed.we should never care about these people and consider this people as a challenge for further success.

Some people wants themselves to be the supiriors in everything among others ,some doesnot agree to be the failures infront of their collegues or friends or fellow beings and this may be the reasons that make them feel jealous of others achievements.

It happens when you poke your noise in to people's affairs. I tend to show a lot of "i don't care" attitude towards people even when they are rich or successful. I focus only on myself and myself alone. I care little about wat goes on in people's life, hence am neva jealous of people's success. I ignore totally what i want.
