That's an interesting question.Cranky Bear said:To all the people here who experience jealousy/envy for other's playing, how do you deal with it?
The ones that bug me are the guys working that are not all that great and I can outplay them. I sulk and pout, then continue woodshedding as before. The good players inspire me to continue. It all comes out in the wash.Cranky Bear said:To all the people here who experience jealousy/envy for other's playing, how do you deal with it? I usually end up shedding nonstop for hours each day with fierce determination. Im just curious how others deal with it.
I think when your feeling jealousy it's because you don't have your own unique style. Your trying to copy somebody or something and someone else can do it better than you. I feel like when I came into my own thing and style I didn't get jealous anymore. I wanted to learn and am inspired by other players but there is no jealousy. I do my thing, they do their thing. My thing is my thing and I like it. Any improvements I can make and still keep it my thing is where I'm at now a days.kcp said:2) "Do your own thing so there's nothing to envy"
No offence, of course, kcp , but i do think you misunderstood what I was trying to say, which is probably my fault for not being clear enough.kcp said:RootyToot makes a valid point in saying that envy isn't the same as jaleousy. Yet, I find that to breaks things down into two categories, is only a half-truth to me (no offence I hope.)
Or, you could just mix up a batch of quikcrete and pour it into his horn when he takes a break.BlueTone said:I usually just punch them in the mouth and steal their horn.
One less person to compete with.
