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.

    "Gained a new view"

    I really enjoyed listening to this very wise man tell stories about how common and pervasive fear of success is.... Going forward I will be very careful about comparing complaining and criticizing myself and others and I will listen again for sure.

    Story
    "I purchased three copies after reading"

    First and foremost, many thanks to GH for putting this "ULP" into words. This book help me to identify many situations where ULP was a stumbling block for success in my life. I am a middle child of three and the sibling competition or feeling of need to shrink so that others around me would not be uncomfortable is something I experience. Of course, it is tacit, so I never thought of it as the "thing" causing me to have short comings. I quickly have been able to identify these behaviors since reading this book. I purchased three copies of this book to give this knowledge to three very important people in my life.

    Well written, easy to understand, easy to apply the tips and insight.
