Remember Where You Come From
It’s most unfortunate, but there are those of us who rise to higher positions only to forget that we received a great deal of help along the way. We sometimes feel as if we achieved our goals on our own and we fail to say ‘thank you’ to those who might have played a role in our success.
Forgetting those who assisted in your success is no different from forgetting where you came from. When you fail to understand the connection of all people and how we serve one another, you, in essence, fail to understand the beauty associated with mankind. We are all made of energy and when we use that energy to uplift one another we will find that we are also uplifting ourselves. If you can’t understand that concept, then you might not understand the power of the universe.

If this is the case, one can only imagine how powerful it is when they share their energy with others. The most unfortunate part, however, is that a person can share their energy to help another achieve their goals and then find that they are unappreciated for it.
You stand by a person’s side and watch them benefit from your contribution to their lives, only for them to become successful and forget how they even got there. You get what you give, and that is a universal law. Don’t believe us? Check out this short video and see for yourself how it works.
