All of us are chasing success in our lives; careers, businesses or relationships. Until we have tasted success, we never seem to understand what it takes to stay successful and a successful person will tell you that it is more difficult to stay at the top than to get there. What keeps successful people at the top? There are certain things that they do not do, things that if they did would bring down the results of their hard work in a snap.

#2. They Don’t Let it Go to their Heads
