My TOTD was a short daily encouraging text message that I started sending to my closest contacts over the last four years and now I’ve decided to make it a tad bit longer and post on the site. It is my personal experience and/or opinion, written daily to encourage you, inspired you or to tell you that you are not the only one going through! Enjoy.
JAY’s TOTD: I asked God to protect me from my enemies and then I started losing friends! -Unknown
Today I told my friends over Facebook that, “Maximizing your success will require you to limit your friends!”
It’s a natural process of elimination that occurs when you start becoming successful. Though people will gravitate to you, you realize that people that you once thought were close will show their true colors.
They will try to attack your character, talk about you behind your back, gang up against you and fabricate scenarios to tarnish your reputation.
Miserable people, the ones that never had your back in the first place will rear their heads to strike you down from being successful. Sounds harsh, but it’s so true.
Cover yourself in prayer, give thanks for being alive because there are some people that wished you weren’t even alive! They pray for your demise. Not because you did anything to them, it’s merely because jealousy, hatred and envy lie heavy in the hearts of some people. They will be happier to see you on their level than succeeding and making something of yourself!
You see, the higher the level, the bigger the devil and the harder life gets! Just like there is good and bad. Angels and dark angels. Truth and lies. There are friends and enemies.
Be careful who you call your friend…for they might just be the person to slit your throat!
