Back when I was a college student/recent grad, I didn't really care about other people's/my friends' accomplishments.

"[Friend] graduated from pharmacy school and makes $140K/yr!"
"Omg! [Friend] got a job as a code monkey at [software company]!"

But once I broke out of my trance and started working on myself (and business for that matter), I realized I was lying to myself. The fact people who I would consider inferior in intellect/resourcefulness to me proved one thing only:

You can have 160 IQ, but if you're lazy and unmotivated, you will never accomplish anything. Your smarts will go to waste.

In fact, I would go as far as to say that being lazy is far WORSE than being of average (or even slightly below average) intelligence. "Intelligence" seems to be the greatest curse/burden (that disguises itself as a blessing) on one's drive than any other factor I've come across.

If you need a little boost in morale, think of all those people who are way less intelligent than you are, and go at it.

It's always helped me. :D
