The Rules

therulesLife plays out on levels. There’s always a higher level than where you are currently…and new levels, new rules!

Folks often complain about a friend or family member changing after they’ve attained a measure of success. They expect their relationship with this individual to remain the same. This is usually not the case.

When your friend got successful, she attained a new level and the rules changed. If this change is not factored in, the relationship may not be the same. Not everyone will fit into the new levels that you attain and trying to carry them along (if they don’t change) might hurt you.

I don’t mean to be snobbish, but the next level is different from where you are. The relationships, work, attitude, lifestyle, world view, etc., are not the same. Accept it! Only the prepared can move with you to the next stage.

The laws that govern driving are different from those that govern flight. Decide on what you want and know the rules. You cannot be ignorant of royal protocol and dine with the Queen of England. At that level, it’s a different ball game.
