1. Success isn’t permanent

Reaching to the top might be tough be but keeping that top spot is even tougher. One thing we have learnt from the fall of The Kapil Sharma Show is that success isn’t permanent and in order to maintain, you need to keep working hard and not be distracted by personal reasons at least – especially problems.

2. Don’t let go of the winning team

It is very difficult to find people you can help you achieve success. If you find good employees, don’t let them leave. Yes, the replacements are always there but the chances are they might not be as good in the same roles. Also, it is effective in terms of cost-cutting and time-saving. The Kapil Sharma Show tried to replace Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar and others but it turned out to be a big flop.

3. You won’t go far by insulting teammates

For the most part of the show, Kapil cracked jokes on his teammates that were insulting at times. It helped him gain popularity but it is never a good idea in the longer run. You have to show respect towards others for long-term success.

4. It takes years to build name but minutes to lose it

One wrong move and you can lose everything. It takes years of hard work and efforts to create a brand or business, but you can lose all of that in just one wrong move. So, if you have built a name for the company, make sure you keep it intact.

5. Reputation is everything

The golden mantra for success: reputation is everything. Once the differences between Kapil and Sunil became public, so many other actors also pointed their finger at the comedian. His reputation as a team man and family guy was shattered in minutes and Kapil was labelled as arrogant and selfish. And that can be one of the most lethal blows to anyone trying to maintain his position at the top.
