In our last +1, we talked about the science of social comparison and reiterated the fact that it’s toxic.
 
Remember, as per Sonja Lyubomirsky: “You can’t be envious and happy at the same time. People who pay too much attention to social comparisons find themselves chronically vulnerable, threatened, and insecure.”
 
Plus: “The happier the person, the less attention she pays to how others around her are doing.”
 
Today we’re going to talk about what we can do when we inevitably find ourselves feeling the itch of envy.
 
I love how T Harv Eker puts it in The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. He says: Bless that which you want. If you see a person with a beautiful home, bless that person and bless that home. If you see a person with a beautiful car, bless that person and bless that car. If you see a person with a loving family, bless that person and bless that family. If you see a person with a beautiful body, bless that person and bless their body.”
 
There ya go.
 
That’s Today’s +1. 
 
Feel a little envious? Remember, you can’t be envious and happy at the same time.
 
Notice something you wish you had a little more of in your life? BLESS the people who are blessed to have it.
 
Then get back to living your life as well as you possibly can.
 
You’ll be considerably happier NOW and considerably more likely to experience the same blessings in the future.
