or hateful, or motivated when you see someone in a better financial status then you?

I've always been motived by people who have it together.  I never understood why people get jealous or hate, because we all have the same opportunities out there for us.  Some people just don't take advantage of the opportunities.

no. I mean, we've always been motivated to do better bc we were broke when we started out. I don't think our goals came from jealousy or really had anything to do with other people.

No. Even people who are in a more stable financial situation can still have issues and I don't envy them at all.

Nope. It just motivates me even more.

I'm annoyed when they sit there and rub it in your face.

Not a malicious jealous but a "man I wish I had done stuff the right way."
It's not their fault I screwed up.

I get motivated but I'm pretty well off. To ask for more would be asking for no time to enjoy what I have now or exhaustion.

No, I hate people who like to act better than me because of their financial status, but even then I am not jealous because I atleast know how to treat people with respect. I am very motivated to continue my education (hopefully) & provide for my family. Just isn't going to happen today lol.
