The key in life is to remain grounded. Keep your feet on the ground. Putting yourself on a pedestal will eventually cause for you to fall. Keeping yourself too low will eventually lead to other people stepping on you. Finding that perfect balance will allow for you to experience a new beginning within your life.
However, finding that perfect balance can be difficult at times. The history books are filled with so many people that went completely off the rails. To keep from going off on a tangent, the goal is to pursue excellence on a daily basis. When you decide to do things better than how you did them yesterday will then prevent complacency from creeping into your psyche. Do not depend on what happened in the past. Strive for excellence and stay grounded.
