When you see someone do well, and emotions trigger for you to do well yourself, there’s often a thin line between what’s driving it.

Were you inspired or envious?

Seemingly difficult to know what it is, but not as hard to identify. If the changes you’ve made to get closer to the end game make you more disciplined towards your goal, you were inspired.

If your actions become more erratic e.g. taking bigger risks, breaking rules to get to the point, etc then envy drives you.

And of the 7 deadly sins, envy is the one that is no fun at all.
