When you reach the pinnacle of success, you will see beyond it!
Great men are those who have achieved much. Great men have also done much evil. Great men may have emerged from wars as the heroes, but, dont forget, great men were the instigators of the wars in the first place!
We all want to become something. Along the way, we may forget one major duty: Being human!
When you remove all superimposed labels from a person, what remains is the essential: human.
Our first responsibility is to be human.
Never harden your heart by exaggerating the effort to succeed!
In order to see what lies beyond success, you first have to reach the pinnacle. The most interesting benefit of success is how it enables you to see what lies beyond. Once you have satisfied your hunger for success, whatever else you hunger for is what lies beyond.
What most people who take a long time to reach success see beyond the peak is often what had hibernated within, overshadowed by their ambition for success. Few people are able to draw out the sage within themselves until they have reached the pinnacle of success.
The longer someone stays at the top, the wiser he may become. This wisdom comes from having conquered success. You can now see what lies beyond success. The curtain that success had drawn over what lies within is pushed aside.
People need to achieve their ambitions before they can conquer them.
