Hi ssh123! I don't think anyone has any right to lash out or critize his rivals. Being rich or successful does not give you the right. The rich or succesful may think they may have the power because they are in a position that the weak can't lashed back or fight back. Having that power does not give anyone the right. Take care and have a nice day.

Dear ssh123, A man who is successful in life never do the mudslinging or crticising their rivals if he attained the success in life through his hard work, capability and adopting the honest manner. Those successful people who try to make themselves a successful people in life, who never attained the success in life, NOT through hard work and brain work, will always try to mudslinging or criticise their rivals because they have fear that the opposite party will be more successful in due course than him.

Call me a Pollyanna if you like, but I do believe that mudslinging usually comes back and harms the perpetrator in the long run. At times we have no choice but to indulge in the childish behavior of people who got their power wrongly and wield it without conscience, but sooner or later the tide will turn. As people in the Middle Ages used to say, the wheel keeps turning and those who are on top will one day find themselves on the bottom. It is just a matter of time.

It depends. If one is looking for constructive criticism, than it is fair. The thing is though, a person who is successful may have aimed for something different or at least in a different method than another trying to become successful. You can't just tell someone to "get a job" and expect them to do it over night and be successful in that sense by sunrise. Success to me is to have accomplished one's goals and not everyone have the same goals they want to accomplish.

It is unfair for successful people to be indulged in mudslinging and criticising their rivals. This seems to be their practice and tricks. haha. But still there are some who don't get indulged in that.

Look at the politicians. When they win the elections, they start taking the defeated rival into task and give all sorts of trouble just because he stood against him in the elections.

well unfortunately it may have been the way they became sucessful in the first place. Well I dont think it is right it has been proven effective because if it wasn't that most people would not use that tactics. it is also according to why they are doing it too.

The success would have gone into the head and they speak arraogantly, till they lick the failure in their life.

I feel, truly successful ppl are successful not only because they are good at their jobs but also because of who they are. They hardly criticise, even if they do, I would call it a healthy one. It helps others to rectify and learn and pave their paths to success. Thanks.

Well it really depends. I don't think I should indulge someone just because that person is successful. I don't think that their success gives them the right to patronize me, be rude to me or to think he/she owns me. It is not fair to think that just because one is successful it is ok to forget about manners or hurt others. Criticism depends very much if it's done with a fair and helpful intention or just to disrespect someone. The first is OK, the second inadmissible.

Success if gained through personal traits which are unique and not copied from others cannot be criticised nor the successful person will fear of rivals and practically there would be no rivals for uniqueness.

I find that to be successful, you must be nice to others. Criticizing others or mudslinging results in their eventual failure. No one then wants to do business with them, they loose the respect of all, and they are no longer successful.

dear uncle.it's a busy day for me today.but the first thing after i finish my work today is looking for your new topic on this forum. no,i don't think it's fair for the success to criticise their rivals.yes,successful people is successful,but that only mean they stand out at some fields but not all fields.they absolutely have no right of mudslinging or criticising anybody else. as for their rivals,maybe they failed on the competition with the man who finally gets success,but they still have human right asking others respect.Even some day, they will also become the success. so,the people who get success now should not be so arrogant.
