Can you handle success?
Most people seek success relentlessly. But the sad truth is this:
- Most people can’t handle success, authority or privilege. It’s easy to be the agitator. But it’s harder to be the leader, who has to make decisions and take responsibility.
- When people get successful, there is that temptation to feel proud and say to one’s self “now I’ve made it. So I can sit back and relax, ignore my relationships, stop listening to advice and be rude to everyone around me “. Big mistake.
- Because sitting back to relax, and doing all the negative things is exactly the opposite of what got you successful. It’s ok to “want” success. But you have to ask the question…Can you handle success (when) it comes? Be honest with yourself!
