Never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart. – Ziad K. Abdelnour
Life comes with its ups and downs. All of us have unique journeys that take us to various destinations. Even though our lives are different, there are certain underlying principles that apply to all of us. All of us achieve success at some point and all of us experience failures as well.
Even though the degree of our expressions is varied, all of us feel joy when we succeed and sadness when we fail. It is but natural to feel these emotions but what is important for us to understand is the extent to which we let these emotions affect us.
When we succeed, we feel proud of ourselves, but we often lose our humility. We might feel that we are above everyone else, and others are way beneath us. Such attitudes really hurt our personality and we lose respect in the process.
When successful, we should maintain humility and be grateful to all those who helped us achieve where we are. We should be thankful that we could be where we are today. The moment we let our successes get to our heads, our downfall starts.
We feel that nothing can touch us, and we let down our guards. We do not work as hard and due to this pride and negligence; one tends to lose what they had achieved.
Similarly, when failures happen, we must not blame ourselves so much so that we get disheartened to move on. We must take failures as a lesson and learn from it. It helps us to face and handle situations in the future in a better way.
