Self-improvement and success mostly occur together but it doesn’t mean they are the same things. Some people focus too much on improving themselves that they don’t see how they burnt out (situation when everything loose it’s meaning and don’t spark any joy). Self-improvement is necessary until it’s based on realistic expectations. But our culture is focused on unrealistically positive life expectations. It’s expected that by self-improving person will be happier without feeling negative emotions (suppressing all negativity and full focus on positivity). But by denial of negative emotions person fixating on creation of overly positive behavior.
