Every person is bound by certain limitations, crossing which merely leads to greater complexities and malaises. So, if you set for yourself extremely high objectives out of petty jealousy, that is the cause of much of your sorrows and depressions because you won’t be able to achieve such high goals however hard you strive. Being too severe on oneself merely erodes the probabilities of success.
