Competition

There’s a fine line between healthy competition and Schadenfreude.  Schadenfreude is a German word meaning to derive pleasure from someone else’s misfortune (there’s not a great English word for this).  Life is not a zero sum game.  Just because someone else succeeds, does not mean you cannot.  Refer to this post a few weeks ago.  Make it a goal to help others get what they want.
