BEST PRACTICE:Root for Your Rival's Happiness.
Fat chance, you might think. But doing this changes the wavelength of negativity. Begin with an attitude change, though it may take awhile to really mean it. Say to yourself, "I want my rival to be happy." This points you in a more positive direction. Then, as you get more comfortable with this attitude, try going further. Tell someone you envy, "You're doing a fantastic job." In addition, pray for the person - not just that God removes his or her countless faults! Get it right. Pray for his or her happiness and prosperity. The constructive intent will gather momentum of its own.
