Every Level has a different Devil!
As we reach long sought after milestones and accomplishments in life, one is supposed to never get satisfied with the current circumstance. Once success has traveled over our lips we are supposed to speak only of the next endeavor. Keep striving until we reach the top and even then my friends, we are never supposed to stop! However, as motivating as all that uplifting, hype sounds out loud, we all also know, “keeping your head up,” like Tupac speaks of is most times easier said than done. I think by nature, it’s supposed to be.
I read a poem recently that said, “Change is eventual,” and that is truth personified. As we change, accordingly so should our ambitions and with our shift in life goals, this one thing will always be true. With every Level comes a Different Devil. Sometimes in our pursuit of the so-called Better situation, we go hard to get out of a bad situation. We don’t like what is going on in our present and thus we are highly motivated to flip the script for our future. That’s cool, even admirable but it is imperative that you remember that just because we let go of something old, doesn’t mean that the new won’t have its very own set of rules, regulations, protocol and challenges. With new positions come, new responsibilities. As the motivation to be good at the new mounts so do those idiosyncrasies of the situation that we never imagined before we got there. Just because you have hurdled one issue, doesn’t mean others don’t awaits you on the other side so just be ready to wrestle, even when you are nestled in the new. Striving to go higher is a good thing. Just remember that every level has a different devil indeed. Staying mindful of this could work out toward the best of success for a better you!
