It’s Not Lonely

Lonely at the Top

My fictional response to this weeks’ YeahWriteMe prompt “What’s at the top?” had me imagining what it would be like to have “made it”.

My eight-figure salary, palatial penthouse on Park Avenue and this exquisite view of the New York City skyline are all a result of my grit and determination.

One thing my mentor taught me: always send the elevator back down from the top.

    I dream often of “making it”. In my dream, I always go back to the place I left and scoop up the people who deserve it, and I take them with me. I also already dream of the bloggers I would take with me if my blog took off. I will totally send the elevator back down.

    Interesting contrast: the narrator emphasizes that it was her grit that got her to the top, yet she shares the mentor’s advice about helping others to achieve goals.

    Love your mentor’s advice!! Such a great reminder when you feel like you’ve finally made it. I hope to have that in mind when I finally have my own “eight-figure salary, palatial penthouse on Park Avenue and an exquisite view of the New York City skyline” =] =] =]
