When self-development pressure increases in your particular situation circumstances that can be both from a negative view and a positive view, then you should know that your normalcy is under threat and you need to do something about this. Let us look at your success more closer. Success is an accumulation of something useful in many different ways. You may identify revelation, power, wisdom, knowledge, information, technology, people, time and money as components of your success or lack of the same. The figure below shows a sample of the usual natural resources whose availability or lack thereof may put pressure on you as a person.
Self-development pressure is the availability or unavailability of one or more of all these resources. Individually or collectively the resources produce pressure on you to a greater or lessor degree. The question is how do you, under this load, still stay in your
normalcy? Your problem now is maintaining your normalcy, because your normal behavior depends on your state of normalcy. Self-development pressure may alter your state of normalcy which in turn will affect your behavior.
You have heard the saying: "You either have a problem of little money or you have a problem of too much money."
Now, that you know, you may generalize the above statement to be: You either have none of this or a lot of this." Does this help you or better still - neither too much nor too little, but that which is convenient.

So what then is the problem? At first site this looks like a small problem. But look closely at this challenge because you also are either going towards or are inside pressure right now. Pressure must come! But you ask, when do I expect the pressure? What a good question! The answer is whenever you desire, acquire, utilize, maintain, and dispose any of the components listed above, you attract the component's sponsoring agent and you have to deal with the agent's influence. It could be early or later in your life. You will always face two types of self-development pressures. One is on the debit side and another is on the credit side of your account, or the positive side and another on the negative side of your account.
Both spiritual or supernatural and natural resources have, each a different pressure on you, the main natural resource being money as the exchange resource. So, you will experience money pressure, people pressure, information pressure, time pressure and technology pressure. Of course there a more factors that could influence the amount of pressure that a resource may have, such as how you perceive the source of that resource or your quality of life. If your demand for quality is high then the pressure of resources on you may rise accordingly.
The most important thing to know is that pressure does not come to destroy you, but to power the extraction of the treasure inside you, thus polishing you up. Only when you don't realize that this contradiction between pressure and treasure will ultimately lead to your development are you in danger of becoming a victim of the pressure, which you may have produced by your own success. It is like the small fish swimming beside the whale or shark. The shark or whale does not complain that the small fish are eating up dessert, because he knows algae must be removed, which shows a type of self-development pressure.
