This is my success entry and I will be talking about what success entails as a word. Like I have always said that I am a boy with deep words that require deep thinking,so I will advise us to think deeply about it. Let's begin;

The articles I have read so far about the prompt success have been fantastic and I will say I really love them, but they all take success to be something positive,something fruitful that everybody has always wished to have whereas there is more to it. Success can be attached to many things either positive or negative as long as we derive satisfaction in it. I will start with negative part of success before I will now round it up with the positive one. Let's begin;

  • ENEMY:

Success attracts a lot of enemies and that's the negative aspect of success. For every small win or whatsoever you call success attracts enemies. It is when things are booming and progressing in your life that is when people will start becoming your enemy,they will backbite about you,talk negatively about so that people don't see the good in you any longer. In short, they will be looking for your downfall and never want you to rise up again.

  • Hatred:

Immediately they start noticing that your way has been prospering and you are making it big that when they will start hating you and beefing you and don't want to see you happy any longer. Whether it is a big success or small one,it will attract hatred,all they will try doing is to bring you down and start praying for your downfall.

  • Stress:

When success comes in to place in one's life,then another phase of stress has just begun because it won't be proper if you see yourselves going down. Success will make you do extra work out of your usual comfort and that's a lot of stress to undergo. It will make you to do extra curricular activities in order to earn more of the success and not to be stagnant in just one place. Going forward and progressing will be the driving force which causes you a lot of stress.

  • Pride:

This might not affect everybody but to some it affects them. It is when some attain that success that their attitudes changes and everything about turns the other way around. The pride in them becomes so glaring for people to see,they see no value in people around them any longer,they now think people didn't make it because they are lazy. That was not their initial behaviour before they became successful, but the success changed them in all aspects. There is the popular saying that "if you want to know a person real attitude,wait till the person has money and see their true character".

This is also a negative aspect of success and that's why most people do say that is better for them not to have a lot of money so as not to allow pride comes in.

So many negative things that success is attached to that I was not able to mention but we all know them now with the little I have mentioned above. The positive aspect of success is what I will do justice to now. Let's begin;

  • Recognition:

Whenever one is successful,it brings upon the person special recognition. It makes a lot of people know someone and by this,a lot of people get attracted to the person. They claim to be ones family or friends even when they are not. Success attracts people and there is nothing we can do to them. Be it small or big success,it doesn't matter.

  • Special treatment:

Success gives one a special treatment above others. When one is successful,there are some special treatment they are entitled to. They are not treated like mere people any longer or like the way they are before. For example, Dangote can't be found sitting where the public are at an event rather a VIP ( VERY IMPORTANT PERSON) table will be reserved for him to seat with a lot of refreshment and some other cool stuff that will be available for him. Thats what success can bring upon oneself.

  • Look up to:

Many people will look up to you,will want to be like you, in fact they will take you as their role model when you are successful. They will like everything about you and they will always wish they are in your place to flaunt the success like you. They tend to monitor your movement and all either on social media or any other form,they keep updating themselves about your life because they look up to you,they are aspiring to be like you.

So many positive things success can bring upon you. But remember that your attitude to the success and to people determine how far you can go with it,if you have an attitude that doesn't worth the success it is possible you lose it overnight but when your attitude is good to it,you are good to go and will keep pressing forward. And never forget the people around you before you started making it big. Now that you are sucessful is when you need them the most because they help support you the more.

Success is a very delicate stage to climb, watch your steps and words at people.

Thanks for reading😘😘😘

Oh, I like it how you tackled the possible effects of success. I agree to all of it, especially hatred part. Most people are not happy to successful people, and they begin to get jealous then hate. Then gossip about it, and what-not. I've seen that a lot.

With great success comes responsibilities too and just like you mentioned, attracts unavoidable envy, hatred and the like. Some people let their successes get in their heads and at times they become mighty high and proud which in turn earn them enemies. I think when one handles success well and use it as a tool or way to help others, it would be really awesome.

I agree with you. Success is delicate and if one isn't careful of his or her attitudes, they may fall down again This is what the envious people are looking for though. So when we are successful, we shouldn't be too pompous about it and be on a gentle lane.

We should maintain our gentle lane and never forget how we got to that stage,that will always make us remember the son or daughter of whom we are. Success can be intoxicating like alcohol,we shouldn't permit it. Thanks for reading,i really appreciate.

When you are successful, you will definitely be known all about and people will treat you with respect. That is when you will know even people you've never met before. But when there's nothing they will all disappear.
Most importantly we should ensure we behave well after getting successful, we shouldn't act like the only one who would ever make it in life

You have spoken,when the money or the something that makes us successful is no longer in existence,they will all disappear as if they didn't know the person before. That is life for us. Thanks for reading.

I really love the climb up to achievement and success, we would have challenges on the way and also having to deal with ourselves on the process. You'd have enemies and haters but we need to stay focused. Weldone Gaftek

People will really start treating you special when you become successful. Some of them act like they have never look down and discourage you 🤦

So true,they pretend as if they never looked down on you or as if they have been with you for ages before you became successful. Thanks for reading.

You've spoken well brother. Success brings Enemies and hatred, some people don't feel happy whenever they see their mates or friend succeeding.
Also it is important that one stays cool headed even after making it big or succeeding in an endeavor. Pride goes before a fall.
