Being grounded is the key.Many times we come across people who have achieved a lot and yet are so confident and minimalistic about their success, but at the same time we see people who haven't achieved to that extent yet believe in boosting and showing off. What I feel is whatever a person might achieve in life, they should be grateful for that, and stay as grounded as they can. Grounded doesn't mean you cannot be proud of what you have achieved, it's just not making the other person's achievement less worthy.
Everyone here is struggling to achieve their goals, some succeed in one go, some might take two or more, whereas some might decide starting of another goal. But we should respect every person's goals and desires and not make the other person feel less worthy. That's what is a key to be successful and grounded.
What are your views on this? Do you believe in simple living high thinking too? Or prefer being boostful about your achievements over other's failures?
