Leader Vs Malevolent “When people with bad intentions try to enter in your inner universe, in their heart they know who you really are !! and who they are actually, these small minds are insecure because they know your qualities and capabilities so what trick they play is, just because they came in your life, spent time with you, they know your weak points as no body is perfect and they also know that you are a winner with great mind and ideas and can perform better even if they have known what's in your mind they can not do that the way you can do, then they try to come from some other ways and you show through your attitude by winning again and again, by not losing your faith in you and your abilities that you are unstoppable... This is what makes them disappoint, the sad part of the picture is, you are the one with the good intentions whatever you are but you never think bad of anyone, not even for those who don't want to see you happy or successful, you just kept going even they chase you. So be in the picture, stay on the right track with good intention and keep going, if it's in their nature that they have been chasing you, they will always be chasing you ..... YOU are a leader YOU are a person with great personality YOU are the one, people think of and spend time and energy to know about you, and wish to be like you but you are busy in your life, you don't have time for small things KEEP GOING !!”
