It is said that when one has achieved success, one’s life would be more difficult. There is a theory by a certain Dr Laurence Peter called the Peter Principles which states that every employee, if he does exceptionally well in his job, will soon find himself promoted to a position for which he is not really suited. And the reason for this is that you have done exceptionally well in your previous position since you had the capability to do it and so you can easily complete the tasks. Then you are promoted to a position that gives you more responsibility and tasks which are not that easy. The new job may be more difficult but there are employees who can still excel in this and you will soon find them promoted to a higher level.
At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. Your level of competence, you will soon find out, was only up to the last position that you held. We see here that through regular promotions, since there are no demotions in corporations, an employee can lose his effectiveness in his new role as compared to his old position. Although this may be true, the corporation still continue to do well since there are still other employees who are still doing well in their positions and have not yet reached their level of incompetence. There is no such success problem for a person running his own business since there is no hierarchy to speak of. If you are not able to do things well, you will expect your business to suffer. Successful business owners should try their hand in venturing in international business.
