Toxic Success: How to Stop Striving and Start Thrivingby Paul P. Pearsall
Why do so many highly successful men and women feel lonely, cutoff, and unfulfilled by their success? Why does our drive for “winning” so often threaten our health, our relationships, and our families, leaving us with “an eerie vacancy of spirit?” Best-selling author and clinical psychologist Dr. Paul Pearsall discovered this pattern of “Toxic Success Syndrome” or TSS in his 10-year study of a hundred “winners,” together with their families and associates. He confirmed that most TSS victims are distant, detached, and distracted and suffer from a form of ADDattention deficit disorder. People who experience “Sweet Success”an almost constant state of delight in their love, work and playare able to direct their attention and stay in the “now,” being the center of swirling activity without getting fragmented. It's being pulled through life, not pushed; going with the flow instead of fighting the current; being responsive rather than driven. Pearsall's detoxification program has helped many TSS patients to “sweeten it up” by changing their mindset and taking back their attention, focusing on what they need not what they want. Toxic Success is this celebrated author's most important book to date.
