A Poet on Envy

Yevgeny Yevtushenko on Envy
A Poet on Envy

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.


Idea 💡

"Envy is an insult to oneself." — Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Reflection 🤔

Envy emerges when your self-respect has been lost.

Instead of being inspired by another persons success, you let it prevent your own. If you can’t be happy unless the results of your life match someone else’s, you’re doomed.

Keep a grateful spirit, and celebrate others for their achievements. Success is not zero-sum; There is plenty to go around.

Action ✅

You are enough and have what it takes to build the life you want to live. Drop the envy today.

About the creator 👤
