"While we are on the topic of the success, be mindful of the people you share your plans with. Not everyone on your team is truly rooting for you. Some are secretly plotting roadblocks to your success or secretly wishing you don't succeed. Be aware of the friend who doesn't rejoice at your accomplishments.
Other friends can smell the success brewing within you and act as leeches. They don't want to miss out on your come up. They attach themselves to you when the going is good, but are never there in the trenches. These friends are the ones who make sure to keep the [feable] connection with you intact, so that when you "come up" they aren't forgotten."
