8 Secrets of “Lucky” Job-Seekers

The Grass Isn’t Greener on the Other Side
If you’re constantly comparing your life with the lives of others, of course you’re going to feel unlucky! But consider the following: Just because someone may have had good fortune — say, by winning the lottery or getting a job — that doesn’t mean happiness is guaranteed.
Lottery winners are often miserable from all the media attention and people trying to use them for their money or even rob them. Just because someone else got the job you wanted doesn’t mean you’d necessarily be happy in that job. In fact, that person who got the job may not even end up being that happy in his new job.
The grass always seems to be greener on the other side, but always keep in mind, just because something might seem great for somebody, it doesn’t exactly mean it’d be great for you too. You’ve got to pave your own path instead of incessantly comparing yourself to everybody.
