Can you handle someone else being praised?

If you can, congratulations, you’ve transcended humanly pettiness.

To some this is not even a question. They are naturally happy to see others being praised and in fact shower more of it when possible. For the rest of us mortals, this is a difficult situation. There is an almost involuntary reaction where one feels threatened when someone else is being praised. It is as if for someone else to be good, one must be inferior, at least in that moment.

Here’s a hack. View *any* progress as a small advancement for the entire humanity. Then you can’t help but join in the celebration!
