Without Envy

It is in character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered.

As many of you know, my main concern right now is a promotion at work. I have worked day and night studying for a chance at this leadership position.

Well, the first portion is over and I am proud of my score. However, some of my friends scored better. The excuses are there- they have more experience, I am the underdog, they have taken this test before...but what kind of man/leader would I be if I could not appreciate the success of others. So, congratulations to you all!

It is very difficult to not envy the prosperity of others, especially when it is something you are working so hard to achieve yourself! Keep working, don't give up, your time will come and your hard effort will pay off! When it does, you will want your friends to also rejoice in your success. In everything you do- you GET what you GIVE.
