The danger of success

One of the most dangerous things that can happen in your life is to experience success and recognition from that success. 

The bigger the success and recognition - the more dangerous it will be. 

The longer you've prized that specific success and recognition as a validation milestone - the more dangerous it will be.

It will challenge your character. 

It will threaten your morals.

It will tempt your integrity.

It will attempt to feed your pride.

In short, success and recognition are so dangerous because of their ability to quickly and permanently change you. 

And not only to change, but to forget who you used to be.
