It is a rare person who has never suffered from jealousy and/or envy in their life and career. Both of these emotions are simply part of the — all too fragile — human condition. There are many times in our lives when we want what others have and are deeply jealous that they have it. Jealousy and envy can be greatly damaging to your career, though, and lead you to take actions you might not imagine otherwise. They can cause you to be petty, mean, controlling, and outright aggressive towards others if you feel your self-worth is threatened deeply enough. The perverse nature of jealousy and envy, though, is that it matters little in life what others have. Except in the most extreme cases, your accomplishments and your success are your own to control. Life is not a zero-sum game where everything someone else gains, you lose. We all gain and lose on our own merits, our own timeline and our own wants, needs and desires.

In your career, you are often told to “follow your passion, do what you love.” The common corollary to this is to ignore money as the motivating factor in your career and concentrate on those areas where you can find the most joy and have the most impact. While I certainly think you need to find the passions in your career in order to build the career you deserve, you cannot — and should not — ignore the effect that money has upon your career. Understanding money, how to earn it, save it, spend it, is of critical importance in any career. Being “moneywise” will help to ensure that money doesn’t drive your career, but also that you have enough money to live the life you desire.

While having a deep knowledge of the world around you is incredibly important in your career, even more important is a deep self-knowledge of your strengths, weakness, wants, needs, and desires. You must know what you want out of your life and career, what you know, what you don’t know and the difference between them. It is only in this way that you can make the best decisions for yourself and your own, unique career. Otherwise, you will be susceptible to control by others or even arrogant about your own knowledge and skills.
