Inspiration Stamp by Kezzi-Rose Inspiration Stamp by Kezzi-Rose

The biggest favour you can do for yourself is to turn envy into inspiration.


Something we all need to remind ourselves of sometimes; it's easy to look at others - their work, their happiness, their lifestyle - and feel envious, but a lot of the time that jealousy can be used to fuel our determinations and fulfil our own goals. The ability to turn that negative envy into positive inspiration is in our own hands, and is a great power to have. ♥

From the original quote on my Tumblr.

Using ~ Thank you! This quote really inspires me. I've always compared myself to others who've succeeded in life and thought negatively about my future. That meant i felt jealous of them so my envy for others will certainly turn to my inspiration from others Heart emoticon

What an interesting idea! ....Though I do not believe that envy is a good thing to have, maybe dealing with it this way is a good way to deal and/or get rid of it! :D

Envy is perfectly human, and as long as it remains sane, it's normal. The problem is "destructive envy". Focusingsvlogs (Spanish youtuber) has a video about envy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxmVEy…   (I don't know if it has subtitles...).

Ahhh <3 I love this stamp! It made me realize that being jealous and envious over others isn't going to help me improve in art. Instead I should let it inspire me to keep practicing and maybe one day I can reach their level of awesomeness. 
Totally using !

This stamp is a like a band-aid for all the cuts I've received from envying other people's artistic talent, from all those countless moments. So thanks again for the wonderful stamp here. :)

so much people was envy on me for the same shitty reason, my drawing skills, that are the best crap ever, yet the few friends I had used to envy me and this was pretty painful, because envy to me is derogatory, and is like they just hated me more than supporting me... and I know this could happen to others...hope some peope can understand that the envy and jealousy just hurt people...

It's always that moment when you look at something, and you may think, "I could probably do something like that" that you think, "Hey, why don't I do something like that?" and give yourself a starting point to go from...

Thanks for reminding! I pretty much never envy others because it's blaming my own mistakes and misfortunes on other people. I'm adding this to my collection.
