Competing Against all Odds
In today’s world, many of us are competing against all odds, while climbing the ladder of success. The competition is very tough and stressful. We have to be willing to make tough sacrifices that will include lots of self- discipline, while climbing the ladder of success with lots of others, who want the same things we do - and are willing to compete at any cost, to gain power and wealth.
For females, it can be a challenge when working with a large group of males. This is when you find out who you are: Can you compete in a man’s world? Do you have the stuff it takes to maintain self-worth, and achievement? Are you hungry enough to take your stand on the same battlefield in life, and fight for power and wealth, and walk away when the battle is over with honor and power?
To be a successful competitor, one has to be committed to their goal. The answer to each of the questions above, has to be YES!
Regardless of gender, one has to be willing to take what belongs and what has been promised, by not backing down and by not giving up. Never be willing to throw in the towel and accept defeat!
"Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid". ~Frederick Buechner
Character assassination, grudges, jealousy, hate, lies, sexual advances, plots to end another individual's career, or cause someone to lose their job.
If you have worked hard to accomplish your goals, and have invested financial income, spent many hours in class rooms, and training to get an education, and have made many sacrifices toward your career, or a position you hold on your job, competing on the same battlefield of life, while climbing the ladder of success, with others; many of whom are arrogant, greedy, mean, selfish and are uncaring. Some of those same people are without a conscious: Being afraid is not an option for you. You have earned the beautiful things that life offers by staying committed to your goals. Enjoy your success!
