It’s funny how some people sit on the sidelines patiently waiting for you to fail. They watch your every move and hold on to your every word while maintaining hope that the next move you make is the one that will cause you to fail miserably. They could easily stand and cheer for you while you are winning but that would go against what they stand for. It’s easier for some people to find fault and hate than it is for them to show love. If only those people knew that it’s the other way around, maybe their lives would improve.
Just like one win doesn’t determine a champion, one loss doesn’t determine a loser. Some people would rather see you fail than succeed because of their own perceived limitations. Misery loves company and so does failure. In a twisted kind of way their way of thinking sort of makes sense. They don’t want to see you win because the top is lonely and there’s always room to join them at the ever so populated bottom. Who wants to be at the bottom? Certainly not a champion. Still we rise.
In any given competition, there are several people competing for a top spot and there can only be one winner. If you are competing, I can understand the need to see your competitors as the enemy. However, if you aren’t even competing, you really don’t have a dog in the fight. You certainly can’t win if you don’t play. And if you don’t play, you should stay in your lane and watch from the sidelines. When you are on top, there will be people who not only want to bring you down but they will work tirelessly to see that it happens.
Maintain the understanding that the hard work you put into being the best increases the distance between you and those who want to see you fail. The harder you work the greater the distance increases between you and your haters. While they are busy hating, you stay busy working.
To The Top!
