The Cost of Success

Everyone in this world wants to achieve something significant, but only a very few of them can make it happen. So many studies of wealthy and successful people and their comparison with the ordinary showed that the prior group live their dream life because they have paid the cost of success, they have overcome failure.

Is “proving them wrong” really the right way of success?

“Work in silence; let your success make the noise.”

I read this quote the first time around five years ago. Not only was it interesting, but it went viral as well. Even today, I see this quote, or it’s derivatives very often. However, I believe that people took this quote too seriously. Many people join the gym after a breakup with an aspiration that one day they will post their picture on Instagram with their aesthetic body with a motive to induce the feeling of regret in their past lover. Is this really right?
