Advice: "I got my friend a job, but now he's outperforming me and I'm starting to hate him"
The Quota Claimed The Quota

I'm an Account Executive for a tech company in Colorado. I've worked here for almost five years, and have seen the sales team grow from twenty reps to over four hundred. About eight months ago, my friend from college moved out here from Oregon. He's in sales too, so before he moved, he asked me if I could get him an interview, and I agreed. He ended up getting an offer, and accepted the position, and has been an AE like me ever since, though he isn't directly on my team. Here is my problem (and, for the record, I do understand that it's really petty on my part): he's absolutely killing it here, and has been ever since he started. I, on the other hand, have been only hitting my quota occasionally, and am struggling to even break into the upper half of all reps.What should I do? Should I put myself out of my misery and just find another job?
