Tall Poppy Syndrome - Help Needed!

The "Tall Poppy Syndrome": people tend to cut down/attack/dislike successful person because this person stands out from the average crowds and is easily seen.

In the Japanese culture, this phrase becomes: the nail that sticks out gets hammered.

In the Indonesian culture, this tendency is often described as a person who climbs higher than average will be dragged down by the crowd below.

I wonder how other cultures in the world describe this Tall Poppy Syndrome. Would you kindly share it with me? Comment please...
