Success is something that changes the mindset of a person. It gives confidence to the person. After being successful in any project, a person feels more robust and powerful. Some love to hear others talk about their success. Some love to remain silent about themselves. Some develop ego from their success. Some take it lightly.

No matter how one takes the success, they are always the thirst for achieving another achievement. This kind of growing attitude is quite similar in the case of players. They are passionate about competition and challenges. Similarly, the spirit is very much the same in the case of wrestlers. Along with the winning attitude, they even need to do self-promotion in a very dominating way. It can sometimes be mandatory to make their challengers mentally weak.
