It’s funny how success can change someone.
And while most of us are in the camp that we would never change who the core of our personality is simply because we finally hit the big-time – either through MLM marketing or any other business venture – the fact of the matter is that finally breaking through that barrier and accomplishing what so many others cannot turns you into an entirely new person. He’ll be overflowing with confidence, ready to take on bigger and bigger challenges, and just generally pushing forward with a new life while those who didn’t have the willpower, drive, or finishing ability will be left behind.
Remember that success doesn’t happen on an island
It is almost impossible to enjoy any success in our modern world whatsoever without the help and assistance of other people. The fact is that while you might believe you are solely responsible for all of your achievements (and truthfully, you certainly are) the odds are fantastic that you had someone give you a boost and a hand up along the way. The last thing you’re going to want to do it step on top of those hands or fingers while you climb the ladder of success, keeping them down while you go on to bigger and better things.
Always remember the way that the struggle feels
We’ve seen it a million times. Whether it’s in Hollywood movies, the celebrity rag mags, or other areas of our life we have all been in contact with someone who was right next to us in the fight to become great, finally found themselves catapulted to real success, and then set back on their rear end while everyone else seemed to pass them by.
Trying to keep the burning motivation up just as hot as humanly possible can be an amazing struggle, but you have to embrace everything that you did to get to where you are right now or you’re going to find that all of your results don’t mean anything in the long run. Always continue to push, struggle, and drive forward – never forgetting of the help and assistance that you’ve gotten to be where you are today.
There is one warning, however – don’t let the people below you pull you back down into the mud
Success can sometimes be a lonely thing.
The truth of the matter is that not everyone is cut out to be the very best of the best – in fact, if there weren’t average people in the world there would be no need for a term like average. This is not a bad (or a good thing), but rather a neutral thing that you’ll have to fully embrace as you respect the drive, anxiety, frustrations, and obstacles you had to explode through to get to where you are – and you cannot let anyone else pull you back down. And this is one of the biggest dangers of hanging out with those that you have surpassed, as they will almost always be envious of your success (ignoring how hard you worked to get where you are) and attempt to break you down. Fight it with all you’ve got.
