As an entrepreneur and leader, when you grow in stature, your organisation becomes larger, and you become more successful. Based on your success, you learn to trust your own judgement and reasoning — your experience tells you that, mostly, you are right. So, your own success and the exterior signs of this success create one of your biggest problems, one not too dissimilar to that of the famous people or royalty: Whom can you trust? Or, put slightly differently: Who will tell you their true thoughts or views?
