Simple. NEVER SETTLE.
We aim to be successful and we set goals to measure our achievements, but if we settle on a particular level of success, if we become comfortable with a certain level of comfort, we lose momentum and the drive that got us there in the first place.
So success can only be sustained by constant striving, a decision to never settle at a level of comfort or achievement, but to fix our gaze on a higher goal and go for it with a greater effort since we the ‘greater capacity’ we have acquired.
No matter your definition of success, how much money you have, how much influence you have gained, the spiritual height you have attained,
if you will sustain success,
you must get uncomfortable, get back in the trenches,
aim at a higher goal and GO! HARDER!
