This is the concluding part of the series of discussions on Overcoming Fear of Success. These discussions have been followed by quick exercises and hopefully, you guys have been working on making a habit of the gratitude practice. Come prepared to participate in another exercise. Dr. Glover says, “nice guy syndrome is fundamentally codependency. It is an anxiety-based disorder in which you are trying to manage your anxiety by controlling other people and the situations around you know, believe it or not, the people you love the most and who love you might be the biggest barrier to you getting what you want in life. This is true for a number of reasons. One is that most nice guys grew up in families in which there is a lot of emotional fusion, and then they grow up to form emotionally fused relationships with other people as adults. In an emotionally fused relationship, you are supposed to be there to take care of the needs of other people. That’s your job. You belong to them. So going after what you want might feel threatening to people. You are might feel neurotic guilt about making yourself a priority rather than putting everybody else first.” We will talk about how we can make ourselves a priority and get our needs met. And we will end this session and series with a guided visualization exercise.
