People are jealous of only the people they know. So, I am not jealous of over-achievers I personally don’t know. Now let’s just say you know 500 people on a person-to-person basis. Your mind creates a pecking order. There will be people accomplishing much more than you all through the time you have known them. So, they get past your jealousy. It is only people who are below or just above you in the pecking order that you feel most jealous of.

As you move in life, you get to know more people. And as soon as you know them, you place them somewhere in your pecking order. And it is only these people whose life and achievements generate that intense feeling of jealousy in you.
