One can have matchless skills but if he has no self-confidence and belief in himself, he will fail someday. In addition, the people who are successful never desire any other rival or competitor around them. Once a competitor tries to rise up, they leave no stone unturned to counter them and maintain their position in society. Hence, to become a successful one should try remaining far from such successful people. Had the nightingale not listened to the frog and believed in itself, her destiny might have been different.
