How do you overcome jealousy in the workplace? It’s a question that many people struggle with. How can we feel fulfilled if we don’t have something to be jealous of? How can we know that our work is good enough if someone else gets more recognition for it than us?
How can we be happy when other people are doing better than us and getting promoted at a faster pace? How do you deal with these feelings so that they don’t get the best of you and ruin your career or personal life?
Dissect the Jealousy
Is there really anything to be envious of in your colleague’s success? They may have more experience, a certain degree or title that you don’t. When looking at their accomplishments objectively and without jealousy will make it easier for you not to feel so bad about yourself.
Sometimes, we feel that others have something more than us. We compare ourselves to our peers and try to find what is lacking in the life of this acquaintance or colleague. But how much do you really know about their situation? Take stock of your professional achievements as well as other aspects in which you are satisfied with yourself; then focus on these traits instead. For example, if someone who travels a lot isn’t present for most games his kids play — but doesn’t travel because he loves being at home – it may be hard not feeling like they miss out when watching them from afar into the stands while cheering loudly along with everyone else!
Pinpoint Your Jealousy
Jealousy can be overwhelming, but it’s important to understand the source of this emotion. Jealously is often caused by someone else receiving better assignments or making more money than you are, so try and identify what exactly about your work environment has left you feeling dissatisfied with your accomplishments. For instance, a colleague might get their name on an article that they didn’t contribute as much time too whereas in reality all employees contributed equally; if this sounds like something you’ve dealt with before then take some steps towards understanding why these feelings have been triggered again instead of letting them control how satisfied we feel at our jobs.
Do Something About It
Constant jealousy can lead to unhappiness and resentment, but there is a way out. To stop feeling envious of others at work or home get more involved in the day-to-day happenings. Spend less time worrying about what your boss does all day while you sit back doing mindless tasks which are unfulfilling for either one of you. Speak with them instead of about taking on a new responsibility that will keep both parties happy; ask for an increase or go back to school so you have updated skills when it comes down to making decisions around career growth later on; take advantage of opportunities as they arise by requesting Australia company travel package if desired (this might also help broaden your skillset). Perhaps most importantly though–don’t be afraid, don’t put your life on hold, and don’t wait for an opportunity to come around.
