When you aspire to be the best you will encounter two types of people. Those looking to tear you down, waiting for your every misstep so they can they can ridicule you. Those people are afraid you might succeed. Your success sheds light on their mediocrity.
There are others. These are the people who cheer you along and stick by you when you stumble and fall. Who are there to help you back up. They want you to succeed because your success gives them hope that the mountain can be climbed.
