When you let go of jealousy – you may discover true talent in others

Have you ever seen talent and wished you had it?  In the past, if I saw someone who was more motivational than me, more successful than me, more anything than me, I would allow that little green monster of jealousy to raise it's ugly head. Especially if they were younger than me!  And that, my friends, didn't serve anyone, let alone me.

This year, the theme I chose was to let go.  That included jealousy and resentment of others who have  more than me.  And, I'm glad I did.  If not, I'm not sure I would have watched this very talented young women and shared my excitement of her!  Please check out Sarah Kay – I found her because she is keynoting a conference that I am doing a breakout session for.  I had to see what she does and I'm glad I did. She's not a motivational speaker like me, but she is impactful in what she does. As you watch her TED clip, just enjoy.  I don't want to tell you what to look for or what I got out of it.  I just want you to watch and see if and how you are moved….I sure was.

From your happy to celebrate the success of others (even if they're a lot younger) motivational speaker, Marilyn Sherman

  1. Wow, isn't she fabulous!! Thank you for sharing this and for the powerful message you bring with it. I think motivational speakers, maybe more than a lot of other people, find it easy to start Rolling in the DEE (Destructive Envy Energy). I appreciate this beautiful reminder of how delicious it is just to enjoy the brilliance of other people! 

  2. How exciting to not only get up, close and personal to such a great orator, BUT to be one as well. And one who has let go! And I truly believe when you let go of jealousy, you make room to be inspired, to see your possibilities and that only draws more opportunities to you. Bravo, Ms. Marilyn!

  3. It is such a wonderful freedom, isn't it?  Letting go of feelings that hold us back, like Colette said.  What a wonderful experience for you, Marilyn!

  4. Comedians are like that too. Some of us are extremely jealous when other people make a funny. I think I will learn to let go of my envy too. Or I might miss my own gifts as a motivational speaker.
