My tip; do not look back to your own past, because it will get you back down again.
A number of people in business when they reach to the zenith or summit of their personal goals they might feel guilty to have succeeded to become triumphant, due to the demographical ambiance that leads to envy around them among the failures... the key is not to look down to the old paths while you struggle to get up the ladder. I know it's very hard to do, indeed, it was for me, every time I reached to my goals I said to myself: "why am I up here, while others are still down there trying to reach my ankles to pull me down again?" so my advice is don't look back because it will yield you to a standstill that might be forever.
Nevertheless the best part of my life is when I tried to force myself to get up there on the summit while huffing and puffing into a sweat to succeed. Metaphorically; I loved the challenge and the struggle going up the mountain far more than the platform up here at the begrudged time where I'm now, and with a smile to lovely memories of the past.
Why don't successful people and organizations automatically become very successful?
One important explanation is due to what I call "the clarity paradox," which can be summed up in four predictable phases:
Phase 1: When we really have clarity of purpose, it leads to success.
Phase 2: When we have success, it leads to more options and opportunities.
Phase 3: When we have increased options and opportunities, it leads to diffused efforts.
Phase 4: Diffused efforts undermine the very clarity that led to our success in the first place.
Curiously, and overstating the point in order to make it, success is a catalyst for failure.
