Why are Mr. and Mrs. Jones Living My Life?


“There is neither greater glory than love nor any greater punishment than jealously.” — Lope de Vega

I’m sure you have people whom you are jealous of.
“Why do they always look perfect? Why do they have the latest fashions? Why are they in a higher position than me? Why did they get the promotion? Why does living healthy come easy to them? Why are they on TV and I’m not? Look! They can lift their butt up over their head and I can’t.”

Stop your whining already!

Okay, I whined a little when I first started my business. “Why did they have to choose the same lights as me? I picked downtown first. Why are all my competitors moving to downtown now? Why does she have a trust fund and I don’t?

Enough already, right?

There is always going to be someone. They pave the way. We also can’t be right for everything (or every person) so thank goodness for them. The world is big enough for all of us. With our hard work, will and desire we will reach our own success. We are all different people with different struggles in the same choir. Some are bass and some are tenors while others are sopranos and altos.

I’m always reminding clients “She has 100 more hours of practice than you and when you reach 200 hours of practice in your Pilates you will be doing that too.” Hard work and effort pays off every time. Applaud other people’s success because they point the way to your own success.

Please post someone else’s success that you are applauding today below.

Everyone has pebbles in their moccasins. If you feel lost in a labyrinth of other people’s demands and desires, try unearthing any unhealthy fears or beliefs you have that are allowing you to be taken for granted. Write them below by posting below.
