Jealous and Inspiration : Two Side of a Coin

Dictionary says the meaning of Jealous as "feeling or showing an envious resentment of someone or their achievements, possessions, or perceived advantages" and the meaning of Inspiration as "The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative".

In hindi it is called "Jalan" and "Prerna" respectively.

Now, we try to understand it by its meaning mentioned in dictionary. Both are feeling. Both are process of mind. 

Now, we try to understand it by example. Let say, we are working in an organisation. One of our colleague receives some appreciation from Seniors & Management but you don't. Here what would be your reaction? How your mind think? Your mind would think in 2 ways only: either appreciate or deny his work and achievement. Either you will start to spread negativity about him that he is this or that or blah blah... OR you will also appreciate his good work and will try to do the same. Here you can see the state of your mind and make difference between Jealous and Inspiration. 

If you are not agree with the achievement of other it is Jealous and if you are agree with the achievement and think to be same it is Inspiration.

  1. Right ... and lets not care for what other do or think about ourself... we know ourself better than the one who is jealous or inspired, getting jealous or inspired or any other feeling is their decision.

  2. Yes... you are absolutely right... actually it needs courage and positive mind to appreciate anyone's achievement or agreeing with anyone's good work, which nowadys hard to find.

    Really very well written. Thanks for this post.
