Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius. – Fulton J. Sheen
Hang around in leadership long enough and at some point you will encounter jealousy. It’s not uncommon in the workplace and it eventually shows up. You can’t be responsible for how another person feels when it comes to their jealous ways and you should never apologize for the level of success you achieve. What you can do is be gracious. Overlook the petty jealousies of those around you, show them a better way, and don’t fall into the jealousy game yourself. You have too much to be thankful for and too much at stake to entertain such notions. When you are the target of jealousy rise above it, let it go, keep running your race.
