Many years ago, Bill Gates said something to the effect that success feeds on itself - successful people become more successful because they think that they can't lose so they take bigger risks.
Now mind you, I certainly am nowhere near to being able to personally test this idea.
You've no doubt heard that "....The rich get richer and the poor get poorer....". Maybe the rich get richer because they're less afraid to try because of past success? Or do they just feel that they have less to lose if something goes south?
So does success after success change you as Mr. Gates suggests? Just wondering.....
