It's very often I envy on other's achievements; I m not sure is it because I lack confidence or  I m just typical type of person that will feel like that quickly.

When I started blogging ten years plus back, I envy the same batch bloggers who earn income through their blog. When I start playing and build something on WordPress, I envy those plugin developer that make plugins for living. 

When I start to become freelancer, I envy those freelancers that can freely choose their customer. I envy some freelancer who did half ass job yet charge multiple higher than me.

When I start to dive into Laravel, I envy those developers that release packages or even build products on Laravel. When I started a company, I envy those managed to push their business to the next level, while I struggle to keep the company alive. When I am going back to solo freelancer again, I envy those entrepreneur has been established and have a team to push for their goal.

When I try to build a product, I envy those friends who get hunted on Product hunt and getting lots of attention. When I struggle to release product, I envy those makers that release new product monthly.

It bites me some time, and it does turn into jealous sometimes, but I always ask myself, did I work hard enough? Nope. I believe those I envy is working a lot hard than me; I need to up my game rather than sit here and envy them.

    @knight People around me always said they envy me and I used to be comfortable with that. But when my views was broadened, I began envy others and uncomfortable with others compromise. But soon it became an exhausting envy list and consume my energy on endless complaints. I want to expand my boundaries, meanwhile I have to admit that I won't do as best as others limited by my own experience. Only then jealous would be a healthy motivation.

    Btw, I envy you when I read your post because what you mentioned I even have no chances to do! You thought you are not doing well, but for me, be able to do so many things is amazing!
