The SUC­CESS TRAP

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

Just be­cause some­one has a great ca­reer, ca­reer doesn’t mean the rest of their life is per­fect. Re­mem­ber the big­ger pic­ture and that you don’t know what other peo­ple are go­ing through – a glam­orous In­sta­gram post doesn’t sum up a per­son’s life. Psy­chol­o­gist An­drea Bo­nior ad­vises peo­ple go­ing through suc­cess jeal­ousy to un­der­stand that the re­ac­tion is hu­man, rather than feel­ing guilty about it.

To keep things in per­spec­tive, con­sider this piece of ad­vice from Am­ber’s ther­a­pist: there is no set def­i­ni­tion of suc­cess, so don’t take some­one else’s goals and ap­ply them to your­self.
