The Trouble With Success;
- When you begin to taste success, people around you, even those close to you, will be jealous. When you're blessed, unfortunately, you will face some form of resistance or resentment. Don't take it to heart.
- Success will bring change, go with it. Not everyone will like it, especially those around you who are insecure and only prefer things a certain way, don't let that bother you.
- When you become successful, be prepared for attacks, from everywhere.
- When you are successful, every relationship in your life will be tested. Some people might even say that you have changed. Do not fret. Those that feel displaced by your success will try to control you out of the fear of losing you. Don't take it personally.
All in all, learn to forgive.
Persecution can teach you perseverance and rejection can teach you forgiveness.
When you fully understand your purpose on this earth, it is so much easier to forgive.
