Value your Success
"Success tastes sweetest to those who never succeed." There is a good likelihood that when you are successful you may forget its true value and not respect it properly. This could lead to a disastrous situation for you, if left unchecked.
Acknowledge your success
Often we face so much adversity in trying to succeed that we are just not sure of how to handle it. Sometimes we are not even able to believe it finally - We have succeeded, we have won! Something good has happened to us! Internalizing and acknowledging your success is the first step to handling success, otherwise the happy feeling and its power will flitter away from your hands.
Be in gratitude
To be able to handle success properly and relish it longer, begin with gratitude. When you show gratitude, everything becomes more effective. Remember the long battles you had to fight to reach here and be thankful for the help, support and courage you had.
If you’ve managed to accept that you’ve succeeded, maintain the balance. Don’t go running towards the extreme, becoming egoistic and arrogant about your victory. Ego in victory is a sign of failure.
Success multiplies when you are able to help others with what you have achieved. Give advice; provide guidance to those who are walking the same way that you did once. Be inclusive at this point; don’t cut people off, now that you have succeeded. This will also give a meaning to your success and to your life at present.
Take it to the next level
Celebrate your external success. But also pay attention to your inner success; acknowledge the journey you made and the transformation you underwent during the journey. Don’t be too hard on yourself for the errors that you made on the way, which might have caused loses or delays. Accept those too with grace. Focus on making most of the new changes in you and use them as stepping stool.
Dealing with friends and family
When you succeed, you might notice that people’s behavior towards you change. You might lose a few near and dear ones to jealously and competition but keep your cool. You many even hear accusations of how you think only for yourself and you didn’t have time for others or you didn’t include anyone in your plans. Don’t doubt yourself and do not let guilt overpower you. Think objectively.
Be at peace with yourself and your situation
On the way to success, you might have had to make many sacrifices. Make peace with yourself for those things. At the same time don’t get complacent. Keep moving to do more and achieve more. Take up a hobby that helps you refocus your energies so that you can grow more.
