Two powerful lessons that can be gleaned from this article:
LESSON 1 - As much as you can, don’t allow unwarranted criticism, unjustified comments and jealous attacks to weaken your resolve to be the best you can be and were designed by the Creator God to be. When you have labored long and hard and circumstance together with those empowered to motivate you to go to the next level instead discourage you as if to disarm your passion to labor long and hard; labor long and labor hard!
LESSON 2 – When blessed with the opportunity to lead many, use the opportunity to advance many. Be mindful not to loose focus by directing energy on the "chatter". On the contrary do what you have to do to advance the cause that is greater than you and the "chit chatters".
