We often say failure is the mother of success. But the more successful you are, the more you need to understand that success can also give birth to failure.

“Change is the only constant.” Your success today does not guarantee success for the rest of your life. If you allow yourself to be complacent, then success will soon leave you.

When any company reaches its peak, it is also at its most vulnerable. It tests both the wisdom and management capabilities of the people who run it.

Successful entrepreneurs will tell you that there is no room for complacency in business. You need to be vigilant about the changes in the world, and be ready to adapt.

Companies who fall into complacency lose their sense of crisis, and stop improving themselves. Over time, they can only end up in failure.

I agree with this philosophy. In the six years of Monspace history, our success has always been built on an insatiable appetite for improvement. We don’t get success get to our heads, but constantly find ways to grow. This is the only way we stay competitive.

I hope you too, understand that success is often the greatest cause of crisis for companies.

 

我们常说失败乃是成功之母,但越成功的人更要注重”成功乃是失败之母“这个道理。

“兵无常势,水无常形”恰恰说明了“花无百日红”,也就是说,如果你今天获得成功了,但却怠惰下来,那成功将不能维持一辈子,守常必败就是这个意思。

当一个公司到达最顶峰的时候,也是最危险的时候,因为考验的不仅是经营者的经商能力,还有他的智慧。

真正成功的企业家会告诉你,经营企业如履薄冰,经营者唯有抱持战战兢兢的谨慎心态,才能适应世界的变化,看见商机,让企业永续经营。

如果不慎掉入“成功的自我满足”陷阱后,经营者将失去危机感,不再进步、不再积极学习,长久下来,企业将尝到自取灭亡的苦果。

我非常赞同这个思维,满星云成立六年,即便满星云取得了成功,但我们始终抱着“杯子七分满”的思维在经营企业,不自满、不骄傲、努力反省自己、勇于自我淘汰、敢于颠覆旧模式拥抱创新,唯有不受成功的迷惑,才能保持”迎战“的状态。

当了解何为”成功是失败之母“后,相信你也能明白,其实成功才是企业最大的危机。
