Make the Pie Bigger

I was chatting with someone yesterday ((let’s call her Jennifer) who was rather upset that a friend) landed a promotion. It’s not like they were competing for the same opportunity. They aren’t even in the same field.

Jennifer was unable to see that her friend’s promotion didn’t diminish opportunities available to her. To her credit, Jennifer wanted to see things differently. The more we talked, the more she was able to feel a bit of appreciation for her friend’s success.

Each of us had the opportunity to build a bigger pie with others. Then we all benefit.

Something to think about and put into practice.

Have a great day,
