Jealousy and Envy are a part of life (biblical and non-biblical fact) so you can’t deny these feelings, we all experience them daily. Trophy Envy is polluting our hunting culture and I think it’s going to continue to grow like a fast cancer, because all of us are now publishers.
Whenever I get caught up in wasting my time because of envy, I bring it back to why I hunt and guide.
Being honest, I use to find myself getting SUPER jealous or calling bs on pictures I saw, but slowly I figured out something, I am not competing with you, them or anyone else. I am competing against MYSELF! If I have the right mindset and put out my max effort, I don’t have time to worry about not living up to the HYPE.
Personally I would tell you this…
If you are worrying about competing with others, you are wasting your time and energy.
