    I get very jealous of smart people to the point that it becomes a lingering thought everytime I do a piece of work; this includes thinking that I have no use in this world if someone can do what I do but at a much higher standard. I sometimes get jealous of pretty girls that are ten times more intelligent than me. How do I stop this unhealthy thought process?

    The world is not for people who are best able to do the job: the world is for people who do the job. These people who you are jealous of may miss out on opportunities that you take by being a risk-taker and working harder or more effectively.

    And don't forget these people will be deliberately trying to damage your self-esteem to reduce the competition. As Steven Furtick said "The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel." You must avoid being manipulated by this propaganda if you want to be happy.
