Success changes you

Post CAT and other MBA exam results  you will be tested for WAT or Written Ability Test so it is advisable to read variety of topics. Today, you will read WAT topic : "Success changes you" 

Everyone works hard to reap the sweet fruits of success. And when they ultimately realize their goals and dreams, and become successful, they get engulfed in fame and fortune. But does this change a person? 
 
The answer is both ‘yes’ and ‘no’. There are two facets of our life – professional and personal. When we become successful in life, professionally, we become a different person.
 
Professional success causes us to think and act differently. We gain management positions with every step of success. This causes us to take on leadership positions, collaborate with subordinates, superiors and colleagues more effectively, and leverage our efforts like never before.
 
In the professional sphere, success will definitely change you because you will get more responsibilities and you will have to prove to the management that you are capable of taking on more challenging roles. When you become successful, you will become confident and you will set goals that were previously unthought-of. With every step of success, we want to climb higher to even greater heights.
 
In the personal sphere, people tend to have fears around success and its negative impact on our lives. There is fear that success may cause them to lose the lifestyle to which they might become accustomed. There is fear that one may become materialistic and superficial once success gets a person’s head. On the other hand, some people become more modest and caring when they become successful. 
 
So far, we have discussed scenarios in which success changes the life of an individual and the people next to him. There are situations in which success does not have an impact on one’s personal life. There are many people who maintain a balance between professional life and personal life. 
 
They do not allow success in the professional sphere to affect them when interacting with family members. These are the people who can distinguish professional success from personal success. They do understand that the success reaped at work has nothing to do with their inbuilt personality.
 
So, it is really the personality of a person that determines if success will change him or not. Some people become obsessed with success that they are unable to separate professional success from personal life. These are the people who end up becoming over confident and arrogant. So, to ensure that success does not impact your life in a negative manner, it is important to keep professional and personal spheres of life separate.
