Product Description

Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors. "I don't deserve this," "this is too good to be true," or any number of harmful thought patterns prevent us from experiencing the joy and satisfaction we have earned. Sound familiar? This is what New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks calls the Upper Limit Problem, a negative emotional reaction that occurs when anything positive enters our lives. The Upper Limit Problem not only prevents happiness, but it actually stops us from achieving our goals. It is the ultimate life roadblock.

In The Big Leap, Hendricks reveals a simple yet comprehensive program for overcoming this barrier to happiness and fulfillment, presented in a way that engages both the mind and heart. Working closely with more than one thousand extraordinary achievers in business and the arts—from rock stars to Fortune 500 executives—whose stories are featured in these pages, the book describes the four hidden fears that are at the root of the Upper Limit Problem.

The Big Leap delivers a proven method for first identifying which of these four fears prevents us from reaching our personal upper limit, and then breaking through that limitation to achieve what Hendricks refers to as our Zone of Genius. Hendricks provides a clear path for achieving our true potential and attaining not only financial success but also success in love and life.

  • Becoming aware of your Upper Limit Problem
    I have just completed reading "The Big Leap", and I am very excited to try out the skills learned in this book, in order to stop myself limiting any success or happiness that I could achieve, but never do.
    I guess I've had a vague feeling that I was always sabotaging myself - though for years I blamed others (in particular, my husband). I clearly understand now that I have been acting on barriers created since childhood, to stop any advancement in anything good in my life.
    I am now clearly aware of the processes used to sabotage myself, and the methods to be used to rise above the sabotage and lead to success!...more info

    Here is a most valuable book which helps any individual "take the leap" to a better life and to success (as the individual defines success).
