small words BIG thought!!!
The risk of successSomeone you know is successful. Most of his decisions were bang-on and he's on a winning streak. He also has made some mistakes - who doesn't? - but he learned his lessons, corrected them, and moved on. Now he's on the way to the top. Am I talking about you? Maybe the "tomorrow you"? But when I say success, I don't mean success in business alone, but also in your personal life, your studies, and your relationships. But there is a risk in success. Why do so many successful people eventually fail? Because they develop a feeling of invincibility and lose touch with reality - but reality doesn't lose touch with them.
History shows that there are no invincible armies.- Joseph Stalin
I reject your reality and substitute it for my own.- Adam Savage
The big risk of being at the top is that you become hypnotized by your success and are no longer grounded. The present crisis in the banking system proves my point. Spending $200,000 to renovate a bathroom, exclusively using a private plane, paying half a million dollars for a seminar - all these and many more lavish acts show us that the big boys at the head of the banks were out of touch with reality and that is the main reason for their downfall and our current economic disaster. Talk about costly mistakes!
Are you at the top and enjoying it? Good for you and I wish you all the best. But please stay well grounded. You don't want to risk your success!
