Fear of Success?

Fear of success? What is that really? Is this one unitary condition?

I typical hear people refer to this "condition" when they engage in some type of self-defeating behavior. I firmly believe this is an unhelpful social construction, just like "writers block." It is a pop-psychology term used to oversimplify many potential constellations of self-downing and anxiety causing beliefs. Be careful of such glib oversimplifications; they can prevent you from really doing the type of work you need to do to change. Adopting cheap platitudes is not a replacement for dedicating oneself to growth.
