To an onlooker, the person who exhibits the trappings of success is possessed not only of great wealth, but of happiness, inner peace, ethical congruence, interpersonal security, and freedom from vulnerability. In fact, the opposite is often true. The closer one gets to achieving one’s goals and aspirations, the more likely it can be that success creates greater feelings of vulnerability to the winds of change and near-certainty that the dreams will become nightmares.
Getting Support From A Therapy Is Common and Wise
It is not uncommon for even the most successful among us to seek assistance from a Career Coach, a Life Coach, or therapist. Film director Woody Allen has effectively based much of his career on the notion that success is the single greatest cause of his needing therapy! Many people find his films funny because they see a truth in that idea that hits too close to home.
Dr. Laurie Grengs, a licensed Minnesota psychologist, is trained in the arts and sciences of therapy, and she understands that success is often the cause of the kind of insecurities that can be addressed via various strategies of psychological professionals. In other words, if you are a person who has achieved a level of success in your profession or in other aspects of life, and you are having difficulties that just don’t seem to make sense in combination with that success, Dr. Laurie Grengs is very likely to be able to help you not only understand the causes of your difficulty, but place them in perspective and make real progress in overcoming them.
Successful people are not immune to the issues faced by those of us who consider ourselves to be still on the way up. Successful people can be reaffirmed in their success without themselves believing they deserve to have become successful. Success may be considered the result of luck instead of hard work and perseverance. This phenomenon is often referred to as “impostor syndrome.” The person who suffers from it may live in fear that it’s only a matter of time before they are found out and exposed! A therapist like Dr. Grengs can provide the kind of guidance toward insight that can help an individual understand that the feeling of imposture is fairly close to universal—we are, in other words, far from alone in feeling that we’re impostors.
