The Temptation of Success
Here is an exert from a great book that I read called Joseph:
"This message is addressed to the successful, to the up-and-coming executive, to the man or woman on the way to the top of the heap, to the individual who is experiencing the benefits of and favor of God, to the person who is reaping the benefits of increased PRIVACY and TRUST.
Adversity (hardship, affliction or misfortune) is sometimes hard upon a man, but for one man who can stand prosperity, there are a hundred that can stand adversity.
The temptations that accompany prosperity are far greater (and far more subtle) than those that accompany adversity."
Point: It's good to fight for success, but when you're becoming successful or have reached success, you better watch out, because the "temptress" is waiting toward the top of the ladder. Planning a way to knock you down.
