Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.
Napoleon Hill, 1883-1970, American Speaker/Motivational Writer/Author of "Think and Grow Rich"

Things done for selfish reasons are charged with negative energy from the beginning. Avenues of lies or greed may lead to success but when you travel down them to reach it you reek with a stink that makes you forever suspect. Nothing of great import can be the product of negative energy, which always tears down more than it builds up.
I find great interest in understanding why people do things. What drives someone is more telling than where they are driven. The quickest way to get things to unravel is to do the right things for the wrong reasons. The easiest way to alter a negative is to view it as such and people with a hidden agenda just cannot see anything besides any means justifying the end they hunger for.
I have been walked on and cheated by such people, but most of us can say the same thing to one degree or another. I have paid with years and green backs for agendas I do not believe in, because of lies and manipulation. I cannot focus on the loss, although I do give it its due for a short moment or two. The weaknesses of others only ends up making me stronger in the end. And learning to listen to soul screams instead of heart strings has been brutal again and again. The cost has been dear on my part, but the cost to them will be much higher.
Observation has taught me that they pay a huge price for stepping on others to get to where they end up. When something is dishonestly gained it is forever up for grabs, and the player is doomed to always watch his back. Payback is not always swift, but it is always certain. Karma is a reality.
Whatever seed is planted determines what will grow. Whatever force used to start the
pendulum swinging will be returned, plus the interest earned from evil intent. There is no need for revenge when it is understood that a natural law governs us all. Reaping what is sown is simply a certainty, and I get much comfort from its reality.
