When Success Weds Complacency, It Spells Failure!

Let me ask, “Why is it difficult to maintain success?” The answer can be given in one word–Complacency!

The Cambridge dictionary defines complacency as a feeling of calm satisfaction with your own abilities or situation that prevents you from trying harder.

Blood Jesus Cleanse

There are three things you should remember once you have tasted success:

The first thing to remember to counter complacency is that others are working hard to reach where you reached. You cannot simply relax.

Do not think that competition disappears when you have succeeded. The truth is it becomes more competitive than ever. So to stay at the top you need to exercise more vigilance that what it took to take you to the top.

Remember, when success weds complacency, it spells failure!

The second thing to remember to counter complacency is that you need to be ready to embrace change and adapt new methods. Times and methodologies and technologies are changing rapidly.

What was cutting edge yesterday is blunt tomorrow. Therefore be alert to changing needs and stay ahead by initiating change than following it.

Remember, when success weds complacency, it spells failure!

The third thing to remember to counter complacency is that you should never stop reminding yourself of fundamentals. Fundamentals like proper use of time, building of character, being disciplined, striving after excellence, making best use of opportunities, and a never giving up attitude are all examples.

Why do I stress this point. It is because great men and women, great teams and organizations, nations and empires fell because they compromised on the basics.

Remember, when success weds complacency, it spells failure!

So let me remind you once again. the three points you should remember to counter complacency: Others are on the move to reach where you are, probably inspired by your own performance. Again. you need to be flexible and willing to change methodologies as needed. More importantly remind yourselves of basics all the time.

Let me end by reminding you yet another time: Remember, when success weds complacency, it spells failure!

Jesus–the Friend of Sinners!
