All Advantages Have Their Price
Is someone enjoying the privileges, opportunities, or honor you desire? If the advantages that person has gained are good, then be happy for that person enjoying them. It is his or her time to prosper. If those advantages actually turn out to be bad, then don’t be troubled that they didn’t come your way.
Remember: You’ll never earn the same rewards of others without employing the same methods and investment of time as they do. It is unreasonable to think we can earn rewards without being willing to pay their true price. Those who “win” at something have no real advantage over you, because they had to pay the price for the reward.
It is always our choice whether or not we wish to pay the price for life’s rewards. And often it is best for us not to pay the price, for the price might be our integrity. We could be forced to praise someone whom we don’t respect.
