I used to believe that rich and famous people are unhappy. I found that this is only true if they’re not grateful. Success won’t mess with you if you’re grateful and humble. Perspective is key. There’s a massive difference between being grateful and being arrogant.
Some people are grateful when they succeed. They will probably continue their success while being content.
Some people get arrogant from success. They’re gonna be unhappy no matter what. Success will only be a short-term ego boost, and it’ll hurt their success. They might continue their success, but will be stressed and unhappy in the process.
Gratitude and humility will protect you from this. If you have gratitude and humility.
If you’re not grateful you’ll get needy. Neediness won’t help you.
If you’re already grateful in the first place, success will be even more enjoyable. If you aren’t grateful, and need success to be fulfilled, success will only take your state of mind from needy to okay.
If you’re grateful you’ll see success as a bonus.
