ADVERSE EFFECTS OF SUCCESS AND HAVING POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT INCLUDE THAT WE MAY BECOME PANICKED ABOUT MAKING MISTAKES, WORRIED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE PACE TO CONTINUE REACHING THESE ACHIEVEMENTS, AFRAID OF EMBARRASSING OURSELVES, ANXIOUS ABOUT LOSING ONE’S IDENTITY, BELIEF THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE COURSE OR TO EXPLORE, AND FEARFUL OF LOSING THE ACCOLADES WHEN WE LOSE ALL THAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED.
