J: Jealousy


 Jealousy is a good thing. Just that in movies they show the bad form of it- where someone kills the other or destroys the other. Even in real life, the negative connotation is held closer to heart. Often the destructive human nature takes over when faced with this overpowering emotion of jealousy.

But then we must realise that jealousy is actually a positive emotion and if we channelise it positively, we can do wonders in our life. We just need to forget focusing on the person who makes us jealous. Instead we need to focus on ourselves due to the fire raging courtesy jealousy! Once that fire urges us to achieve the hitherto impossible and surpass our own potential, then jealousy indeed becomes the positive factor of our life! It can make us win and how!

Thank God for jealousy. How else would some great things be achieved! How else would humankind have surpassed the 'me too' syndrome in the quest to move ahead of competitors! How else would humankind race towards ever greater progress?!

So, just like - "Daag achche hain" [Stains are good!], a popular ad campaign by a leading washing powder company in India, I'll also say - "JEALOUSY IS GOOD!"

Just channelise it properly in your lives and see how your lives transform!

**This is my post for letter 'J' of the A to Z Challenge 2014. I thought of writing a free write on 'Jealousy'! :)
