Success in life comes when you keep your fire burning. Let me start with this quote.
“Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck.”
-A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.
The point is when you gain a victory, then you must have put lots of your efforts in your struggle and finally won the game. As you make lots of effort, it’s sure you exert lots of physical and mental power in your struggle. So you know how success has come. You know its importance.
Success in life and toxic people
If it’s your first success in life, then it gives you a morale boost. But others don’t want to see how much you have struggled to snatch it; maybe it’s because they don’t like your win. So what they like? They like to wait and see when you will fail. So when you fail at your second attempt, then they forget your first win. I don’t know why they criticize you like this. They say you have gained the first win by chance, not by your abilities.
The thing is, that’s the way they are. I am sure they are not your friends who support you in every situation you face. They are not your well-wishers who give you moral support all the time. Then who are they? They are toxic people who spread negativity all the time. Read more about toxic people here. The most important thing is they do everything to put you down.
What to do
So right now you don’t take rest after you win. It’s not the right time to take rest. It’s the time to make yourself ready for the next struggle that you have to win. So leave no stone unturned to snatch your next victory. Once you do this, you are sure to keep their mouth shut and win at last. so keep your fire burning all the time.
Simply put, success in life comes when you keep your fire burning.
