when every one will think good of the other one?

Every one wants success

.He is not happy with the other man's success.

If he doesnot help him it is all right.

but why should he create hurdles in the way of the man who is trying?

When this will change?

Will it change? what do you think?

I wonder what proof you would show to say that people try to put hurdles in other people's way just because they do not want others to succeed.

I am not at all sure that this is true or at least if it is true to any great extent.  I think it is typically something people like to say to slander their opponents.

I can explain better.I have come across my colleagues,some of them they did not want his co-worker to succeed.What ever good the other person does,he will try to grab the credit for it.He will do anything to get a few rupees in any way.This I am telling from my personal and from my close observations.

Thanks a lot for coming  and giving your valuable comments.

Have a nice day.

There are some people who come to this world only for helping others. No doubt all such people are great people worthy to be worshipped as saints and messengers of God. But those people are exception. I do not think that it is either right or desirable for every one in the world to think of and act interest of only others. The world is not like that, and it can never be like that. Further, a world like that is not likely to be a very healthy place to be in. Just as too much of sweet can kill by diabetes, too much of altruism can also lead to many disorders in the world.

I would rather support "mutuality helping each other" rather than just "helping the other one". This helping each other makes 1 + 1 add up to more than one.  Just helping other amounts to 1 + 0 being less than even 1. It makes the helper weaker reducing his or her ability of contribute even the 1.

I find some of the same behavior, but I don't think you will ever be in a place where this isn't somewhat common.  Whether it is taking credit for someone else's positive actions or being more than willing to spread gossip about someone else's shortcomings or negative behavior, people are often strangely drawn to worrying about how they compare to other people, etc.

In some ways, it is also easy to understand.  Everyone wants to be seen to be the best and most people are not always comfortable with someone changing things or doing something in a way they haven't thought of.  This is only exacerbated when it money is involved!

Well, people are ambitious by nature. We always want to be the best. We work harder and harder and no matter what we achieve or accomplish we still fee the need to earn and accomplish more. We always complain though that we are not getting enough... I do not think that we will ever change as long as there is something to do out there. After all I do not think it is a bad thing. It is why we are here at the first place, to compete for the best..

It is difficult to change another's behaviour. Also, it is sort of law of survival that at times competition resorts to ugly methods. One smart way to respond to such challenges would be to stay calm, think clearly, and charter your own positive ways of achieving your goals.

people are different in the way they behave.Whereas some change as a result of  admmitting that we are different,i still believe we can change for the better,behaviours are not always habits and can be changed.We were brought o this worlsd not because of our own selves but so that other people can benefit from us and vice versa.

 

rerminding people of their importance in society and how much the society needs them can lead to a change.some behave  because of lack of know as to the effects of their bahaviour while some do it on intent.All in all behaviours can be changed.

I have always found that creating a paper trail can squash someone else from getting credit for my hard work.  If you want to have someone notice your hard work, creativity or other success sometimes you have to "toot your own horn".  I am not suggesting being boastful but we do sometimes have to acknowledge the progress we are making in our careers.  You will never change other people -- but you can make sure that others won't try to sabotage you if they know you have appropriate records, email, documentation that could bite them in the end.
