Sometimes dealing with folks that grew up with you can be a real challenge. One minute they can be real impressed because of your progress, and in the next breath they can cut you down.
We are all fun and game until one person excels in something that spirals them into the limelight….then….the famous question is asked, ‘Who does he or she think they are?’
Hard work brings success and success brings a variety of things: compliments, attention, jealousy, negative or positive criticism, and of course the silent or vocal haters.
People who bring up your past when you have struggled to get to the top openly reveals their way of dealing with your success. Then you have folks who will never clap when you win. And don’t forget the ones who will never go public with their compliments.
Have you ever observed the praises and fine words that are extended towards folks who are either on their dying beds or who have passed away?
Everyone switches up their busy schedules to reach out and show support.
I often wonder if it’s a little too late at that hour to appreciate and show love. Hmmmm….😫
Why is it so difficult to say to the people in your life how proud you are of their success?
Pride, jealousy, and hatred are brick walls that need to be broken down.
Why is it that people who have passed away are celebrated with toots and horns, large wreaths, powerful eulogies, expensive caskets, and large receptions? All of which the dead cannot see or hear.
To all those who are toiling and burning the midnight oil for your family and for your legacy – God will continue to prepare a meal before you as you rely on His promises and keep your eyes on Him.
Keep soaring even if no one cheers you on. People are watching and will whisper your success.
If it wasn’t for the LORD…
● You may not have made it to the table
● Keep focus
● Stay courageous
● Don’t look to the left or to the right
● All of the help you will ever need comes from the LORD who makes your ways prosperous so you can have great success.
Jesus is your crown of glory. Be grateful for the glow…It looks good on you.
Don’t fret over those who don’t understand your journey.
Don’t fear failure, just fear that 2019 will meet you the exact place you are in 2018.
