Everyone wants to be successful, but not everyone wants the same for others. Anyone in success will realize that as they change, so do their friends.
When someone begins to have more and more accomplishments in life, that is when he or she understands who his or her real friends are.
Some will be jealous and try to belittle your achievement and others will be proud of you and want to push you to be even better. The friends you have represented the place you are in life at that time.
The more successful you are, the more your friends will change. Your friends will change the way you act, and they will improve your atmosphere. As you begin to gain success, you will gain friendships of those who are equal to you, because many that do not have the triumphs you do will be jealous. The people who don’t try to undermine you will be the ones you want to/will stick around. Do not let the loss of friends slow you down; they were never your authentic friends in the first place.
