â€œBeing let down is easier than being lifted up. Those who lift you have a value that canâ€™t be measured. Those who bring you down teach lessons of what not to do and who not to be. #soulofalifter #peaceâ€
This was the biggest hit of October. The 2nd rated post wasnâ€™t even close. The following conclusion wereÂ reached about why this post was the number-one rated post in October:
- Being let down happens a lot.
- Being lifted up doesnâ€™t happen as often as being let down.
- We value the lifters in our lives far more than those who donâ€™t lift us.
- Those who depress us teach us nothing of value except what not to be.
- Being lifted up is extremely important in our lives.
- The success and failure of professional and personal relationships are based on who causes us hell and who rescues us from hell.
- We are attracted to those who lift us and detracted from those who donâ€™t.
There are two kinds of people. Those who lift us and those who donâ€™t. Those who lift us will have a special place in our hearts because they are life-changers. Those who lift us transform us from what we donâ€™t want to be to who we want to be. Lifters make you grow by shedding the most intense light on your heart, mind, and soul. Those who donâ€™t lift you bring you darkness by spreading their own inner darkness. They put you in a dark place that you visit when the light is shut off. Those who donâ€™t lift you are doing what theyâ€™ve been conditioned to do â€“ spread misery. Misery, after all, loves company. Misery hates being alone. The miserable are hell-bent on making you feel like hell because they stopped lifting long ago or never lifted at all.
Itâ€™s impossible to put a value on those who lift you and that which lifts you. If you havenâ€™t found it yet, keep lifting. The more you lift, the more likely you will get lifted. November can be one of the most depressing months. Darkness sets in. You canâ€™t see the light at the end of winter. The end of the year is speeding up with all the broken promises and broken dreams that will generate more New Yearâ€™s resolutions that will again end up with broken hearts. Hereâ€™s the good news. It doesnâ€™t have to be that way. All you have to do is find lifters and keep lifting. The obstacles in your way are not overcome, theyâ€™re lifted. November tests all your willpower. November puts obstacles in your path to see how much you can take. The solution is to keep lifting. Donâ€™t become a depressing person who canâ€™t talk about anything but depressing things. Donâ€™t become a depressing person who can’t think about anything but depressing things. Donâ€™t become a depressing person who only reads depressing things and presses like to depressing things. Be a soul of a lifter. Thereâ€™s a link after my signature that tells a one-minute introduction of one of the most inspirational stories that Iâ€™ve been blessed to have been a part of. The reason was I was surrounded by lifters.
