Don’t let your ego trick you…

(This is the first in a series of posts I’m going to write about things I often remind myself of.)

I’ve interviewed lots of successful restaurant owners for our book and our videos. Almost all of them have told me that you have to check your ego once you are successful or your success will be short lived.

Success is nice. When you achieve it, celebrate it briefly. But don’t believe it will continue in perpetuity. Stay humble. Stay focused. Keep at it. Don’t let your ego trick you into believing you can’t fail.
