I don’t think they implode because of success. I think they implode because of the pressures of fame. I think I could quite happly live with being a wealthy business man but I wouldn’t want to be a wealthy celebrity.

Hi Steve
I agree. With success comes pressure. Some can handle the pressure. Some can’t. Many people stop short because they imagine that they will also collapse under the pressure.

Personally, I think that the fear of failure and the fear of success balance out. For every person who can’t start there is another who starts, has a series of minor successes and then freezes when the big one comes around…kind of like a football team that wins the Minor Premiership but misses the Grand Final.
