Part 1 http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-Not-Be-Jealous-Realtor-Part-1/482784/ <p class="MsoNormal">1 -Take a personal inventory. Make a physical list if you need to. List all the blessings in your own life. Start with your spouse if you have one, children if you have them, friends, family, and even the monetary blessings. Do you have a place to live? Are you able to read this article(so you have access to the Internet )? and so on. Be as detailed as you can. This will help you focus on the good things in your life.</p><p class="MsoNormal">2 -Understand other people's lives are not always how they appear. You know the saying "Be careful what you wish for..."? That is true when feeling jealous about someone else's life. Most of the time, it is not at all how it appears. Once you realize that it is very likely they are not happy or they had to work through the same feelings you are having, you will see there is really nothing to be jealous of.</p><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]><style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-style-parent:""; line-height:115%; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";}</style><![endif]--><br \><br \>7 replies Wed, 13 Mar 2013 20:13:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-Not-Be-Jealous-Realtor-Part-1/482784/ 2013-03-13T20:13:00Z How many houses did you sell your first year? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-many-houses-did-you-sell-your-first-year/482517/ Mines was in 2010...sold about 17 cheap foreclosures &amp; whatnot.
