Last week, a series of events happened that brought a vital lesson about life to the fore.

Early last week, I saw someone i respect being "attacked" via a Facebook post. Seeing that Facebook post almost got me depressed because anger/bitterness covered the post like a stench.

Few days later, i saw someone said on Twitter that Naval's stuffs only work for him. I found that ridiculous. I don't take in all Naval says, but that allegation ain't true. At least majority of Naval's thoughts aren't far fetched he just says it in a more insightful manner. By the way couple of days later i saw the fellow quoted Naval's tweet with an addendum of validation. I just felt sorry for the guy.

Then the biggest part was when our beloved 200 Words A Day website got attacked on Sunday. I mean, no logical explanation for the attack except for pure mischievousness or evil (to call it what it is).

I was reminded again that, there will always be funny (funny because i'm at loss for words) people around, who derive pleasure in mischievousness, in opposing anything good/popular.

We can't do away with them, we can only act bigger.

    i also had the same ponderings as to who would attack this website haha.

    but you're right about not demonizing the negative people. We must as you said feel sorry for them as it is they who are in pain and lashing out due to it. We must just continue to live positively and act as an example.

    @seunoyebode - And our streak is back!! :)

    Perfect 200 words post with a one word title.
    Thanks to you, I found Naval's podcast. I just finished listening to each and every one at least 3 times. There is too much depth and wisdom in each tiny episode. I am not surprised that people may try to reject him. I liked his way of thinking and speaking back when he was on Tim's show but his podcast is even better.

    I like the moral of your post - Be bigger.

      @keni Naval's Podcast is my ideal Podcast. It gives room for repeat listening. So much depth and wisdom. I didn't understand the "There's no skill called business" until the second time listening.

      His quote on compound interest heavily influenced my career decisions this year.

      Yes is our streak is back, haha.

      Thank you.

      @seunoyebode - lol... I am listening to the same episode for the 4th time today. I keep coming back to it. The compound interest one was profound too.

      @keni haha, interesting. It took me time to understand the "Iterations" isn't just repetitions of doing the same thing. It is Iterations of many things [across]. And that is freaking profound. If you have a note / thought on that, i'd like see it.

      [replied you on slack]
