Success: A Lousy Teacher
It can be a misleading instructor
“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.”
By Morgan Housel in his book “The Psychology of Money”
This quote serves as a reminder that success has the potential to blind us to the possibility of failure.
When we achieve success, particularly on a consistent basis, it is easy to become satisfied and overly confident.
We might begin to believe that we are invulnerable and that failure is not an option.
However, it is crucial to keep in mind that success does not guarantee future success.
In fact, it can be a misleading instructor, causing us to overlook the valuable lessons and personal growth that come from failure.
So, let's not allow success to cloud our judgment or lead to complacency.
Instead, let's embrace failure as an opportunity for personal development and learning.
