Arguing with success

You can argue with success! In fact, if you want continued success, you must. Success contains the seeds of its own undoing.

The problem with success is that it masks so many failures. "Sales are growing. Profits are good. We're great. We're doing things right." So the thinking goes.

The real situation is that we may be doing some things right and others terribly wrong. That may let us survive, and even prospect, for a while. But, it often prevents us from achieving even greater success, or may lay the groundwork for our demise.

It you don't argue, constantly and unremittingly, with your own success, you are dooming yourself to failure. Because, if you are not arguing with your success, someone else will. And they will win, every time.
