Success is good. It is the victory after each business battle. The sigh of relief you breathe when each of your goals or your product sells, and you are making the income you never thought you would make.

But in some cases, people get overwhelmed with success to the point that they let it get into their heads. This can lead to pride and thinking their way and strategy is the only way there is.

There could be a risk that you are closed to opportunities and other people’s advice. These opportunities that may pave a new avenue for your business to enjoy more success.

This thinking can soon be disastrous, and when it backfires, your business could end up taking a hit. Thus, it is expedient to know when success has gotten into your head and the ways to address and avoid it.

Here are the signs that success has gone to your head:

  • You take all the credit when other team members would have helped you actualize a goal or strike a deal.
  • You stop learning.
  • You ignore feedback, especially from customers who are concerned about your product or service.


Understand that success can be temporary.

Just because your business might be enjoying fame and success at the moment does not mean it will remain forever. Success can be fleeting. There is a lot of competition out there. There might be low barriers to entry into your niche which might increase competition, or there may be duplicate products and services. Always look for opportunities to maintain your competitive advantage and be ready to pivot. Continuing education; and reviewing the market, your positioning, and your competitors will enable you to glean opportunities that you might not have discovered otherwise.


Accept Negative and Positive feedback.

Any entrepreneur who wants to succeed must be open to accepting both positive and negative feedback. Negative feedback provides the opportunity to listen to your customers and improve the products or services you are delivering. If you continually do the same thing the same way and avoid negative feedback you will never improve on what was not working.
