How to stop being jealous and insecure?
In order to be able to do that you first need to get a deep understanding of jealousy and insecurity.

In my previous article why do people become jealous i said that the three main factors that cause jealousy and insecurity are 1) Being in need of something 2) Noticing some kind of competition 2) Not being sure of your skills and abilities.

Those three factors combined result int the feelings of jealousy and insecurity you get all of a sudden when you see someone excelling at something or threatening your status. If any of these factors wasn't found then these emotions won't bother you.

So how to get over jealousy and insecurity?

Since two of those three factors are usually out of your control it makes a lot of sense to try to control the third factor which is your faith in your own abilities.

As humans we will always be in need and we will always find people who seem to be competing with us thus trusting our abilities is the only way left to end the feelings of jealousy and insecurity.

In the Solid Self confidence program i said that having doubts about your abilities to reach your goals before your competitor can be the main cause of jealousy and that the more confident the person becomes the less jealous he feels.

Examples of Jealousy and insecurity in life

When someone smiles to your wife and then you feel jealous it means that you were afraid that this man steals her from you (perceived competition + self doubts + needing her).

When you feel jealous because a friend got promoted even if he works in another company then this means that you are afraid that he succeeds while you don't.

I can give you tens of examples but they won't be needed because they will all be revolving around one point which is doubting your own skills. If you really want to stop feeling jealous and insecure then you must develop your own skills, become more knowledgeable, develop faith in your abilities and build self confidence.

Otherwise, you will feel insecure all the time and you will become jealous whenever someone reaches something that you wanted to reach.
