I was standing there in shock. After all, this decision seemed to have come out of nowhere.
It was supposed to be me, and everybody knew that. For all my hard work and dedication, for all my free advice, and for all my commitment, there I was standing motionlessly as my very soul was taken out of my body. It was a numbness that only experience could describe and an inner silence that only humility itself could bring about.
There I was, standing as a child cheated in a game, watching someone else walk away with what was duly mine.
Why didn’t I fight? Why didn’t I roar like a lion? Why didn’t I go up on my mighty horse and demand that this unfair game be replayed?
I did not because silence got the better of me. I did not because pride and ego overtook me. That’s how I got here. I thought all was going to go to plan; I counted my chickens before they hatched, and I did not leave room for disappointment.

We have to stay focused and steadfast on our goals. We have to put pride and ego aside and work hard without letting our guard down.
Who will get your position if you slack?
