Might I suggest being a crackpot.
Crackpottery. I'm not being facetious with this answer. I'm being serious. Do something mystical or occult, or even just eccentric or off-the-wall enough. At first, start by imagining how it's like research for an incredibly powerful spell or something. I know it sounds like I'm making a "Wizards should work on their spellbooks" kind of joke, but I'm absolutely serious.
Now, you may think that you won't be able to convince yourself of this, but trust me, you will. If you work on something even for just a day, your mind will convince yourself that what your doing has to be worth it, after all, you've spent all that time on it! You literally do not have to do one iota of rationalization. The consequences are as follows:
- Whenever your envy gets triggered, you get to say to yourself, "Well, he may be doing X, but I'M doing Y, which is far more important/powerful/breathtaking/etc."
- If it's obscure/arcane/fueled by your imagination enough, you will be the only one in the world who is doing this. You literally have NO COMPETITION. YOU ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD AT IT.
- You will probably never actually see your project to fruition. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. That way, your psychological crutch will stay with you.
Moreover, after working on it for a while, at the very least you will have something impressive. A very beautifully designed spellbook that looks like it's out of Lovecraft. Notebooks and binders full of bullshit equations. It doesn't matter. It's yours, you're the best at it, you're at the forefront.
Ig they managed to avoid taxes they are an example to folloe. Nuff said.
This is just brainwash. If you want to live in your own imaginary world, it's fine, but don't convince others it's a good idea.
