Publisher's Summary

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 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.

    "Great book!!"

    I really loved the message and insights. The reader (the author) was a little dry and monotone. It was hard to listen to at first. But after the first half hour, I was hooked on his words of wisdom. It's a very great listen for anyone wanting to take themselves to the next level in their lives.

    "SHIFTING LEAP"
    What made the experience of listening to The Big Leap the most enjoyable?

    I loved Hendricks voice and felt the words because they were his experience. I would love everyone to have a copy of this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Myself. I loved seeing who I was through the Zones as he explained and found his experiences while different from mine a wonderful lesson to help me understand other perspectives.


    Which character – as performed by Gay Hendricks – was your favorite?

    Cannot say really, so fluid, it was like watching a movie and I was attached to everyone as I saw myself or someone I knew in his recall.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Oh my gracious....I cannot even imagine the responsibility of this, I'd hate to turn anyone off even though it would be their decision not to watch...lol IT MUST BE MADE THOUGH.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a way to fully explain my gratitude, but it evolves as I devour it over and again. A thousand thanks
