New Level New Devil

Recently promoted?  Recently been rewarded?  New recognition?  Well hold on and don't get comfortable.  This means there is a new group of haters and blockers that are not in your favor.

If you have not torn others down to get to the next level and your brilliance is on the shine and tolerance for nonsense is on the decline, you definitely should be proud of yourself. Most people rise by bringing down others or at least make themselves feel better by doing this. Yet there is an old saying, dig a hole for one and you should dig a hole for two.

Congrats on your achievements but do not get comfortable, complacent, or lazy.  The same way you worked hard to get here is the same way you will have to maintain staying here or at least getting to the next level.  There will be new challenges and new persons trying to disprove your work ethic and intelligence.  Keep track of all your interactions with others.  Be sure you cover yourself and make a strong statement - without being a jerk - that you are here to stay.

If you were not gifted, no one would be standing in your way or blocking you from opportunities.  Only the strong survive and I am cheering for you to thrive not just survive.  Run the course because you definitely may be hindered along the way but you WILL win in the end!
