 Why Destroy the Bridge when you have crossed it?

I was so happy when I checked my wallet and saw 10000 $NOMAD tokens which were airdropped to me by @nomadghada  as a reward for the Airdrop post-contest which I joined yesterday. I want to use this medium to say thank you for the gift, it is such an honour. I will also want to bring it to the notice of those who are not aware of this Airdrop to rush now to @nomadghada to take part in it, thank you all and Good evening.

Let me head straight into the business of the day. A man went on a journey with his family and as they crossed the only bridge that links their community to other cities, he stopped his car, came down from the car and destroyed the bridge. As he was doing that, his wife and children tried to plead with him not to destroy the bridge that they may need it on their way back but he responded and said;

 “I do not want others to cross over to this place because if they do, there will be too much competition and survival will become hard”.

When he said this, the wife and children still tried to stop him but they couldn’t because he has already planned it all even before they got to the bridge. That was why he made them travel in the early hours of the morning so that he won’t meet other travellers who may try to stop him from carrying out his selfish and wicked plan.

After everything, he succeeded in destroying the bridge and continued the journey with his family. As God may have it, when he got into the city he was able to secure a job as a branch manager with a house and a car as an incentive that came with the job, but something happened. The company has been trying to start up a new branch in the city the man came from but because they have not been able to find someone who has the kind of qualities they wanted and also knows the new environment very well, they were delaying it. Now, as the man applied for the job, they found out that he was qualified and also comes from the community where they have been planning to start up a new branch. This was why they made the man the branch manager and gave him all the things he needed. When this information was given to that man, he was devastated because he realized that there was no way anyone can go back to the other community since he destroyed the bridge. As he came back to narrate his ordeal to his family, they blamed him and the wife took the children and left him. Weeks later, the man committed suicide because he lost both his job and his family due to his selfishness.

The story you read is nothing but fiction which I made up to narrate what most of us pass through in life. There is one thing we all must know when we are on a ladder we must not make the mistake of pushing it over when we have crossed over. You may not know when you will need the ladder. Now, from the story, the man thought he was smart enough not to allow others to come over by destroying the bridge until it now turned against him. When you are planning on becoming the best, never make the mistake of doing that at the expense of others because you might end up hurting yourself. Some friends may think that life revolves around them therefore they act in a way that shows that they do not care about other people’s feelings. We cannot play God no matter how hard we try because the creator made it so. Looking at the actions of this man, you can understand why God decided not to give humans the power to give and take life. Long story short, we must try not to block or destroy the bridge we used why pursuing our life’s career because it might be our only road to success.

 

I pray for all those who are passing through this because I believe most people need help in changing from such a lifestyle. May we have the courage to help others find the path when we find it. Life is not and should not be all about us at every given time because that is when selfishness sets in and if not controlled, it will consume us. Have a blessed day today and may all your positive efforts yield positive fruits today and always.

Davinchysax loves you…

We need to give and take for us to survive in the path we take.

Greed and competition makes man do wicked things which in the end would affect him. When we want to succeed, we should make sure we come from a sincere place and our hearts have nothing but pure intentions.

Someone said "Don't burn the bridges" and another said "Don't take down the walls until you know why it was put up". Most of the time people allow selfishness and greed cloud their judgement and they look back in regret in retrospect when they should have shown foresight.

I understand the idea you have tried to convey. We are beings to live in community. Even if we do not know the people who support us in achieving our goals, we should not block the paths we travel because the cycle of life can make us retrace our steps. "Do good and do not look at whom."

I love that statement... The circle of life. It surely comes back to us in one way or the other.
