Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. - Bill Gates

Success is a lousy teacher“- yeah, success is indeed a cruel teacher. Its way of teaching is never pleasant. Bill Gates has warned of this by saying that when you taste success once, do not get led off by procrastinations.

Many times, when you taste success for once, you start thinking as if you will never lose again. This happens mostly because you get overconfident about yourself. As a result, you get carried away! It is good to have confidence in yourself, but too much of anything isn’t healthy anyway.

Success seduces smart people to think that they would not lose ever. In case you count this thought, you cease to put in efforts and thus, end up a tasting failure. Do not let yourself get into this trap.

Avoid letting your success make you feel invincible. Bill Gates has always been active on different platforms, and he willingly shares about his life in front of the public. He says that one should remain humble even after he has succeeded in his life.


It is important to understand that no matter how much progress you have done, you can still make mistakes. Someone younger than you can also give you the lessons for life and you must be open to accepting those lessons. Accept your mistakes and try learning from them instead of making it a botheration.
