Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 4.4, “I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”
Does all ambition come down to envy? Can we truly not aim for success without leaving another in failure?
Steve Covey suggests an “abundance mentality;” a win-win for both parties. There should be enough good things in this world to go around, but we all, along with Solomon, carry our doubts that this will play out.
