Nothing fails like success

Arnold Toynbee, great historian said that you can pretty well summarize all of history-not only of society, but of institutions and of people-in four words:Nothing fails like success.

In other words, when a challenge in life is met by a response that is equal to it, you have a success. But when the challenge moves to a higher level, the old, once successful response no longer works - it fails; thus, nothing fails like success.
