What is the difference between jealousy and envy? We often use these terms interchangeably, but whether you realize it or not, these words have very different meanings. As an entrepreneur, you have likely experienced moments of jealousy or envy of a fellow entrepreneur. How you handle and react to these feelings can have a positive - or negative - impact on your life and business.

In this episode, I explain the difference between jealousy and envy and I share my personal experiences with these powerful forces. I also explain how to identify when you’re feeling jealous or envious of others, how to identify when other people are feeling this way about you and your success, and how you can use jealousy or envy as a positive force in your business and life.


“Envy leads to self-doubt and lack of focus.” - Sigrun


Today on The Sigrun Show:

  • The difference between jealousy and envy
  • Feelings often associated with these powerful forces
  • How having an abundance mindset or scarcity mindset can affect the way you react to feelings of jealousy and envy

Key Takeaways:

  1. Envy becomes most obvious when someone who can help you achieve your goals doesn’t help you achieve them.
  2. Thinking badly about others is just another form of procrastination and creating excuses for inaction.
  3. Everyone has feelings of envy and jealousy from time to time. It’s up to you whether you use these feelings as a force for good or to sabotage your own success.
