Success is the Best Revenge: How to Make Your Haters Jealous

Has someone ever wronged you? When someone causes you harm, it is natural to have an emotional reaction: rage, anger, and the desire for revenge.

However, revenge will never make you better and hurt your chances at your success and happiness.

Why Success Is The Best Revenge

Success is very different for each of us. Understand what you want to achieve and go for it.


Revenge can be an excellent motivator. Let others who hurt you see you dust yourself and thrive. The early stages of success fuel our enthusiasm to continue to work hard towards our goals.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

- Winston Churchill

Rechannel Your Energy

Anger and hurt take our energy away. Rechanneling your negative emotions to positivity allows you to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Abundance Mindset

Those with an abundance mindset have a positive outlook and see limitless opportunities. They embrace change, meet challenges more efficiently, and can handle decisions better with more optimism.

Keep A Positive Perspective

Human beings have tremendous capacities for strength and regeneration. This mindset enables us to prosper and move forward from terrible experiences.

In Steve Jobs’ Commencement Speech at Stanford University in 2005, he spoke of how he dropped out of Reed College, and Apple, the company he started, fired him.

I didn’t know then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”

- Steve Jobs
