“You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” ~Marianne Williamson
I think that quote fits for today as does that photo you see of Warrior above. Do you feel alone at the top? Are you even at the top or do you ever want to be? All interesting questions that I’m bringing into focus or should I say: “FOKE!” like Warrior had said. Whether or not one is alone at the top, this concept can apply to us all in many ways.
Let’s start with Warrior. Did he feel alone at the top? First off, as a champion in the business of wrestling, you alone have that title and nobody else so yes– that applies. But, of course I always mean deeper stuff as you know. Some may like it up there where others may feel intimidated. Warrior wanted that title eventually and most who pursue something similar also have that same motivation. It does come with some issues and sacrifices. Warrior’s title wins made others jealous of his fast rise to the top but he set a goal and achieved it. He got attention a different way than many before him ever got and they had been there much longer. People say Warrior was a “loner” of sorts but does being at the top make you lonely? That all depends as they are not the same thing. I can’t really say if he felt alone for sure but it did factor in with how he already appeared to some. He did it his way and had support from those he trusted.
We all run like the Ultimate Warrior did. 🏃🏻♀️Yep, you read that right. We do in a way. It’s the running or the chase that excites us to go after that job, relationship, position, or anything that interests us. That strive to get to the top pumps our adrenaline of competition. The question is: When you get there, then what? Do you run to the next goal or revel in the current one for a bit? Being alone at the top can be great when you achieve it but you need to think carefully of your next move. 🤔Once you have that elusive thing you’ve wanted for so long, are you satisfied? Maybe you crave more or perhaps are happy with being where you are right now. I can attest to all this with my writing. It’s up to you warriors. Just know that our lives are fluid, not stagnant. We do need to keep pushing ourselves but it’s quite alright to celebrate a victory for a little while- even a small one.
For some of us, we may never strive for that top status and may never be alone. You can be at the 🔝 without necessarily being alone. The opposite is also true. I of course identify with Warrior on many levels and being alone is one I totally connect to. Being at the top— well, that all depends with how it’s defined. I never pursued a career the way he did but still felt at the top many times in my life. It’s not just that career as I’ve said before. You can be at the top with fitness which is how Warrior trained himself to be. It doesn’t need to be taken literally but just being satisfied with how your life is going. We all need to be better though because we learn and evolve always.
Warrior was alone at the top with his disciplined mindset and his spiritual beliefs. Am sure others like myself understand but at the time of sharing his points of view back then, all alone. He totally echoed other great spiritual thinkers and some I follow today. When I first discovered their teachings several years ago, Warrior’s philosophies sounded so much like work they were putting out into the world. So alone? Maybe not totally but to others outside that thinking, yep.
It’s ok to be alone in your thoughts but we do enjoy sharing with like minds. I am grateful to be able to do that now as these past years of gaining or remembering different beliefs have been a struggle. I do like my alone time but some are afraid of it. The mind will wander, oh no.., Warrior wasn’t afraid of that, I’m not either. We are social creatures but NEED time by ourselves even though some may not know what to do. Being at the top will be different for every single person with how you view that idea. If you give your best and be yourself, you’ll know you were at the top when it’s time to hit that pillow at night.
Just because you achieved that dream, wish, or goal doesn’t mean it’s all over. Plan a new one, keep going, and of course- always believe. Take that time to relax if at the top or even at the top alone. You will know what both of those mean and how to interpret them. The running can be fun but know when to slow down once something is caught. The Ultimate Warrior’s running will always be remembered as his time alone at the top wasn’t long. He needed to be alone to use his mind and attained the top win of all. Whatever your goals, be the warrior you need to be to make them come true.
P.S. Wasn’t gonna have a PS this week but just thought of something… Maybe it was Warrior inspired…. Well, his top win of all involved getting that heavyweight title BUT I can hear him saying what his REAL top win was: his girls… 💕
~~~Find me here for book info or check out Amazon on that guy who’s at the top of this post. His spiritual energy inspired those stories to come to life. I write another blog there so feel free to find that if interested as well. I am also on some social 📲like Twitter fb, and youtube(: THANK YOU all for checking in and that ‘lil video I made about the Warrior bio- well it has almost 900 views. I am ultimately humbled as always….🙏🏻
