I was listening to a cd the other day. I want to say it was one by Tony Robbins. It reminded me of a situation that often gets under my skin. Now I try not to let too many things get to me, but here is something that does. Perhaps you know someone who does this. Perhaps you, yourself are guilty of it as I think we all are at some point in our lives. The question is simple, How do you get to have the tallest building in town. There are two answers. Which one you choose goes to show a lot about the kind of life you are living at the time and the kind you are going to live in the future. The two choices are simple. If you want the tallest building in town you can either knock everyone else’s down or you can work on your own. Now I think the answer as to which is better is fairly obvious. Still, how many of us hear people, or ourselves put people down, or minimize their accomplishments because we don’t feel strongly about our own? This causes us three kinds of problems. First, when people hear you belittling someone else’s life, they think, even subconsciously, “how are they talking about me when I am not around?” This may lead to mistrust on the part of your friends, or at the very least, a lack of desire to share details of their life with you. What that gets you is relationships that are not as close and beneficial as they could be. Second, when we put down someone else, it is because we feel inferior to them in some fashion. By putting them down, instead of forcing ourselves to work harder we provide ourselves an excuse not to improve our lives. In other words work on our own building. Lastly, when it comes to the law of attraction, when we celebrate our friends, and even our enemies victories no matter how hard that may be, it draws the same thing to us. In simple terms, when you finally achieve a goal do you want everyone putting you down? Saying you succeeded just because “you were lucky” or “got all the breaks” I would guess the answer would be no. So next time you hear of someone’s success. Cheer them on. Celebrate as if the success was your own. You will make them feel better and life will work better for you. If we all just worked on own buildings we would build a far better city, and a far better planet. We can’t control what other’s do anyway, so let us just focus on us. Start the positive revolution one person at a time.
