Surround yourself with smarter people than yourself

Most of us are insecure about hiring people who are smarter than us, but from my experience the only way to get ahead is you must learn how to manage people who can out think you, and those who perform better than you. All successful people need challenges in life, and when you fail to challenge the top performers they will either leave to another company, or they will begin to compete with you rather than work with you. from what I have learned from working with the most elite top performers in the world is that you must set the standards so high, it nearly impossible to achieve in a life time, so this way they will be focused on meeting expectations rather than having a pissing contest with you.
