Suffering from job envy?

Do you resent others' career success? Here's some advice for managers suffering from job envy:

- A little bit of envy is OK. But remember that you have qualities and achievements that others don't, and give yourself due credit.

- Don't fall into powerlessness. Others' sterling successes do not prove your own inadequacy.

- Focus on attitude, not aptitude. Hard work and a positive attitude are ultimately more important than raw talent, and certainly more important than luck.

- Envy can be a powerful motivator. Use it to identify ways in which you can improve and advance and achieve what others have and you want.
