The old sayings are that "it’s lonely at the top", and "misery loves company". That's why the world works so hard to keep you at the bottom. There is no middle. You are either heading up or heading down. It’s lonely at the top because we are born into a world where failure is the norm, and people accept struggling more than overcoming it. We are born into a world where fear is okay and taking chances are only for crazy people. We seem to seek knowledge rather than wisdom. We use our knowledge to make excuses rather than using our wisdom to overcome obstacles. We have stop trying to be the best at what we do, and whoever wants to be the best is accused of being disrespectful to the people who came before them. We no longer set the bar high. We have put so many barriers in front of us that progress isn't even in sight. Those of us who still believe in making it to the top are outcasts. Everybody is more worried about their swag more than their success. Everyone wants to start a new fad rather than open a new door for people to travel through. Martin Luther King Jr. said that he seen the mountain top, and I want to see it too. I don't want to know what he seen, but I want to see it for myself. I'm learning every day that the more you strive for success, the more alone you will be. The road to the top is always the hardest road to take. But I must take that journey because it’s crowded at the bottom and I'm very claustrophobic.
