i don't understand this paragraph, can anyone explain it to me?

If a large amount of energy is needed to remove an electron from an atom, the arrangement of electrons in that atom is considered to be especially stable. Thus, a high first ionization energy must be supplied to remove an electron from an atom and that the electron arrangement in that atom is especially stable. Any element that has a larger first ionization energy than it's neighboring elements has an electron arrangement in its atoms that is more stable than its neighboring elements.
