Who I’m Jealous Of (and why)

Jul 12, 2012

Jealousy doesn’t have to be a bad thing, even if you were raised to believe that. Who you are jealous of could actually be an indicator of where you need to grow in your business.

Would love to hear your thoughts – be sure to post them here, k?

    What a great way to talk about jealousy – thanks Tina! Love the mind shift from jealousy being a bad word to jealousy being something we “aspire” to.
    Good stuff! :-)

    Great message from the heart.  Thanks Tina!

    Hi Tina, I love love loved this message. I liked the way you pointed us toward what we see in others are truly things we value and want for ourselves. 
    Jealousy is not a negative word now. Thank you  :)

    Love it!  Just retweeted this one! Like several of the commenters here, Im jealous of people who are great at video… and great at getting people engaged in the content….the usual suspects. :-)

    What a great topic! I love your perspective on this & your honesty. Truth is when I’ve been jealous of a competitor or a fellow fitness professional, it usually showed me something to focus on within myself to further develop. I love both Fabienne & Marie Forleo for similar reasons to you. But watching them gives me courage & hope that I can become MORE & that it IS possible.

    Hi Tina,
    Your sense of ease on the video is what I am jealous of.  I still get uptight about what I look and sound like when I make a video.

      Love this comment Laura, because I was totally NOT at ease doing video for a long time. I look back to some of my earlier videos and cringe. (hehe) I’ve found that it takes time and practice doing videos and after you have some under your belt you find your voice. Oh, and to just be yourself vs. trying to be all “professional” or something… that was a biggie for me in the beginning.

    Hi Tina, I’m jealous of you!!!  I look forward to your videos whenever they cross my inbox and I think you just add so much value to the world!!  I admire your consistency and your no nonsense approach to things.  I am also jealous of Marie Forleo too – I think she has a great presence and it comes through in all she does.  As a designer, I also love her aesthetic and strive to create work that has the same level of class.

      Ah, thanks Sherri! :)

    I agree with you about Marie Forleo, she’s one very cool gal.

    Hi Tina,  I love how you approach these topics with such fun!

    Jealousy the way you look at it is great, and I agree with your choices….

    Tina – Great topic!  I totally get what you’re saying here…..and have used my own “jealous” feelings to help propel my business forward many times.  :)
