Sometimes you have to knock people off their high pedestal. When people start to look down on others just because they’re successful, this can be one of the most repulsive phenomena. You can be successful and ethical. Being successful does not require you to lose your integrity. Whenever you begin to feel like you’re so much better than others, just remember that you didn’t achieve success on your own. Successful people who look down on others often look down on some of the very people who have been their greatest supporters.
Don’t ever fool yourself that you arrived on your own.
When you go to the restroom to defecate, this action and the resulting funk should serve as stark reminders that you have some mundane connections with all other human beings. Yes, your poop stinks too!
Never think that you’re too above someone to consider what they have to say. There has been at least one time in your life when someone did not want to hear what you had to say and more times will occur when people will not want to hear what you have to say. Your success does not grant you the authority to have a disregard for people. The way you handle your success can either cause people to want to be around you or cause them to want to run away from you.
When you’re recklessly arrogant about being successful, you cause people to not view your success in positive light. They will view your success as corrupting, considering it’s the source of how recklessly arrogant you act. You should be tremendously careful about being boastful about your success because you could be inviting someone to take it away from you or to reduce its significance. Your reckless arrogance can cause someone to try to do harm to you, burn your possessions, sabotage your reputation, and etc. Is it right for someone to do this to you when you’ve been recklessly arrogant and/or putting others down? No. It’s never right to do those aforementioned things to anyone. You do, however, have to accept responsibility for the negativity you bring your way.
If you intentionally try to demean others because you’re successful, don’t be surprised when you develop more enemies than you’ve ever had. People are inevitably going to stop you from attacking them. They’re going to respond to you with an attack and you’re probably not going to like their attack.
For those of you who have successful people who try to bring you down, don’t simply let them attack you over and over. Fight back! When a successful person feels the need to attempt to bring people down all the time, this means he or she is empty on the inside. It’s not guaranteed that success will make people whole on the inside. If you go ahead and attack them back, they will stop making efforts to demean you. The emptiness they feel on the inside will cause them to flee from you.
When you fight back against successful people who try to bring you down, you will eventually knock them off their pedestal. Go ahead and knock them off their pedestal today. Some people need a reality check. There’s no time like the present to give them one.
