You're only as strong as your weakest link, so be careful who you let in on your mission. Some people are only loyal to an old version of you, but the minute they feel like they're being demoted, you'll begin to see their true colors show. Some people will accuse you of not liking them or caring enough about them just because you refuse to indulge in the type of behavior that you know will get your blessings blocked. When God is calling you to level up, not everyone will be happy about it. Some people will even begin to compete with you out of insecurity. People will look for ways to make you out to be a bad person for moving differently, when you're just protecting your energy. Guess what? That's their problem, not yours! Let them think what they want to think, and God will reveal to them later on that you were just being obedient to His command. Their inability to control or manipulate you with the things they were doing for you may upset them causing them to take their frustrations out on you, whether it's through slander, trying to put you down, or provoke reactions out of you. .
Those who are loyal to your mission will play their position regardless if they're being demoted or promoted, because they were sent by God to help you. Some people will only support you if there's something in it for them, and because of this, God will allow a small misunderstanding to occur just to reveal to you their motives and heart posture. Watch how quickly they are to point the finger and look at you side eyed the minute they don't get what they were hoping to receive from you. For this reason, be careful who accept favors from. Some people were sent to help you, while others were sent only to drain you. Not all help is good help. Make sure you're constantly praying through the process as you build your team, business and brand. What you couldn't see before, you'll be able to see clear as day now, because you're no longer the person you once were, but they still are. Before God blesses, He removes. They were good help during that period in your life, but now it's time to move on, or else they'll only hold you back. Stay down until you come up!
