|That's how we think...|
It's amazing how many people qualify for Oscar nominations when their colleagues or peers are rewarded with some form of power! All of sudden those who you thought were friends soon become your enemies. Majority of the time whoever is in this new position of power, they don't even notice the change. Or in some instances, especially from some of my personal experiences...I just chose to ignore them.
Power can be such a dangerous thing. And please, don't believe that the outsiders are the only people that get Jealous. People in position of power get jealous as well. Imagine someone boasting their abilities and potential and prophesying all the accomplishments they would achieve if in that certain position and then when finally in place, someone who is under them exemplifies greater talent and ability without the advertisement. This will not only make you look bad, but you will feel worse.
Too many times we like to fill our minds with our own interpretations of how things should be in life. More general, we definitely think like this when referring to our careers and the people around us. People like these create situations similar to pots over boiling or volcanoes. They both may be rare, but when they hit, what a mess to clean up.
I want you to tell me some ways that "Power Brings Jealousy". Let me know what you would do in a similar situation. Tell me how you would solve the problem, the tell me how you would prevent the problem. Be Expressive!
