Be better than the praise of men

“Success is a lousy teacher, it seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose” – Bill Gates

There are times men will sing praises of your name because of an outstanding performance or achievement.

 

They will say you are the best, the most intelligent, profound in wisdom, and many others!

Do not be deceived, many worked so hard,, spent sleepless nights to win medals and could not maintain it because they lifted that anchor of persistence and got swollen headed with the world’s praise.

Desire and the push to better, are better than words of praise.
Let not the words of praise destroy the very fabric that makes your success story.

There is a thin line between words of encouragement and the praises of men – one will push you to higher heights, and the other lower to the pits of hell.

The heart of a man can be deceitful and full of rage.  You never can tell who is truly interested in your success.
Be on your guard!

Inspiring minds positively.
