Together On Top

Help Another Up

“Reach out and help another up, it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.” -kR

We must come to the realization that increasing our chances of becoming or being successful does not in any way, shape, or form reduce another person’s chances of becoming or being successful.

Competition brings out the best in us but competition doesn’t necessarily equate to rivalry and should never ultimately culminate in jealousy.

If it is crowded at the bottom, that is often because the bottom is confined by a few natural but too many man-made boundaries. Just look at the ground around us – it is shaded by encroaching trees, guarded by high walls and barbed wire fences, laden with roads plagued by an abundance of traffic signs; from yield signs to stop signs, from caution signs to pot holes and speed bumps. All of these things serve to contain us, to confine us, to inhibit and to limit us.

But once these shackles are broken, once these boundaries are transcended, once these obstacles are overcome, and as more people evolve, spread their wings and fly, it will become evident to them and to all who witness this phenomenon that there is plenty of room in the sky, and therefore it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top. We will realize that the sky is not the limit after all, as there is no limit once we operate in the threshold of the boundless sky.

There are millions of birds who share a single sky above us, and yet they never complain about it being too crowded. As a matter of fact, they often fly together in harmony. And as a result they do not sit lonely at the top.

So then, why can’t we humans, supposedly more intelligent creatures, all get to the top together? The short answer is, we can! And quite frankly, we should! As far as success goes, there is no more fulfilling feeling than becoming or being more successful because you help others become or be more successful!

So, I hope to see you at the top! But better yet, I want to help you get to the top, just as I would appreciate you helping me get to the top. Gratitude and Godspeed!

Truth About Fear

At the Top

At the Top

It is lonely at the top only when selfish people sit at the top. So reach out and help another up, it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top!
