Managing success is more tactical than managing failure. When one becomes successful and becomes known among people, the first thought which hits their mind is, “why am I lagging behind?”
After coming out of their thoughts and hiding their expressions of inadequacy, they congratulate the person on their success. Within the ambience of success, one lands in another sphere, where one’s societal members are no longer comfortable with them. They eventually start feeling their own inadequacy.
The worst thing is if you are happy enough to pass any piece of advice to uplift them; that piece of advice becomes a sword of disgrace. Irrespective of saying anything good or bad they start feeling worse about you because they are unhappy with themselves.
On the other hand, if you have failed in something your societal members will motivate you. They will give you examples of successful people and have a compassionate nature towards you; which is more satisfying and humane. Moreover, when you face failure, society will encourage and motivate you to achieve it again and to do better next time. But after your success, the same society will start dragging you down, will start backbiting, will pass nasty comments and classify you as haughty.
As it is rightly said, your attitude when you are successful and patience at the time of failure is what defines you.
