How can I avoid jealousy because of competition? (QandA : 001)

Problem 001
How can I avoid jealousy because of competition?
Background
One of the major causes of jealousy today, is the competition that we indulge ourselves in - consciously or unconsciously. This could be the sense of competition at your workplace, or comparing your standard of living with your peers - whether it is the race to gather the latest gadget, the newest car model, or the home theater.

And we see it all around - not only in our peer work group, I have seen couples competing among themselves. Not only that, it is common to see competition and jealousy among our siblings, close relatives and friends.
Solution 001
Let us see what changes we can bring in our thinking approach to avoid the sense of competition:
(1) One of the best techniques to overcome jealousy, and therefore to increase the happiness content in our life is to remember this we must take inspiration from others but compete only with our own self. And the reason is simple. Any competition with anyone else puts a limiting constraint on your own capability.
(2) The second technique is to understand that each one of us are in our own journey of life, just like two cars on a highway. The journey, their destination, their purpose of the journey - everything is different. Competing with the other car is like comparing an orange with an apple i.e. makes no sense.
(3) Last but not the least, remember that the only purpose of our life is to be happy, and share happiness all around. If jealousy snatches happiness away from you, then your purpose in life is being challenged - why are you allowing it to?
