INSIGHTS FOR LIFE
THE CHALLENGE OF STAYING AT THE TOP
They say “it is one thing to move to the top and another thing to stay there”. The idea here is to stay there by more achievements, but, when you come to the top you will realize that the real meaning of “staying at the top” is to overcome the challenges of psychological warfare of that new level and keep your cool against ill winds from devils.
A troubled heart cannot plot the next feat. A bruised mind will have difficulty concentrating. The devils at the new levels plot to steal your focus because once you lose focus, your productivity diminishes and they can see you lose your place at your top.
The new devils at new levels pose a great challenge to a lot of people.
Staying at the top after getting there is not always about moving into another successful feat. Sometimes the next success feat might take a while to manifest and the individual will enjoy life on the wings of the current success.
The devils at the top pose a great challenge to those who have arrived at the top and need to stay there. Opposition is everywhere. The world is not sane enough for you not to expect adversaries and evil-minded people, no matter how positive-minded you are.
If you deny that adversaries are blowing ill wind towards your direction, you might be surprised to see those winds become a tornado on you and make holding your grounding a challenge.
Frail humans become the devil’s workshop and when you observe, you will see envy and negative vibes emanating from those who don’t sincerely like you. Your love can neutralize them and make them smile, play and laugh with you, but then, like dogs returning to their vomit, they remember they have built up the opposition for you in their heart. They remind themselves they shouldn’t get what they have or that you don’t deserve what you have gotten, and then they continue their satanic attitude towards you.
Staying at the top is to know the art of war, knowing how to move like a serpent and relate to others like a dove. If you can fight the battles waged against you, you can stay at the top and plot your way to the next level.
You have to stay smart and more aware of your environment. Take note of people’s behavior as their behavior will always reveal their hearts no matter how smart they are in hiding it. Enjoy private moments of plotting and planning and surprise them in the wake of it.
The world hasn’t grown out of its jungle nature yet, you should not leave your fierceness too.
