Sound familiar? This is what New York Times best-selling 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 1,000 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.

I love that he presents his opinions in story form. His take on our upper limit problem is clearly detailed. His take on time and connection to source were evident and something I have taken on.
Wonderful book. I first heard of the "upper limit problem" from a class I took about the energy with money. She recommended this book in the studies and I'm so glad I had a chance to finally read this book.
I'm so grateful that I stumbled across this book. It was a classic case of one thing leading to another in my reading (and life) journey -- and what a difference this book has made to my happiness and overall experience of life, in such a short time. If you're receptive to the idea that most of your big and little stumbling blocks (to success in work, love, family harmony, etc) are actually originating in your own unconscious beliefs about what you deserve, then I believe you'll find this work to be incredibly helpful. I love that the audiobook is read by the author, too -- it makes all the difference!
I have not been able to put into words for years what Gay Hendricks described in this book. He very clearly laid out why we prevent ourselves from going deeper and further than we are presently. That is exactly what I have felt for so many years.
Although I loved this book, it was very deep and hard to fully track at times. But that didn't minimize the impact of the book. It simply forces me to want to listen to it again to catch all the things I didn't fully grasp the first time around.
I listen to a lot of books and this has been one of my favorites. Gay Hendricks has a unique ability to get key points across in a way that's easy to understand (pretty sure he's in his "zone of genius" :-) ). More importantly, he provides specific steps that can be taken to improve a situation which is something I always look for when reading these types of books. Highly recommended!
