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.

    "Love the reading!"

    Really enjoyed the way Gay Hendricks reads the book. Makes you feel like he's talking to you directly and his humor shines through. There were many great tips and insights but I feel I'm still missing a component to help connect the dots. Maybe I'll hear it the next time I listen to the book -- which I definitely will!

    "good with lots to chew on"

    the big leap is a very fun book that gives you lots of information that can change your life! it took me a little while to finish the audiobook during my daily commute. Sometimes the chunks of information or a little bit hard to chew on and I needed a break. This was not something that I was able to listen to in a week or so. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it.

    "A Game Changer"

    Highly recommend that everyone read this book and quit living before your capability. It not only takes you through understanding what's holding you back, but also talks about how to change it.

    "totally usable"

    some self-help books I know that they are good, but I will never actually apply them in my life. This one is incredibly interesting and very applicable.

    "A must read"

    This is one of the most amazing books I ever read. A relationship between spirit, genius, mind, relationships and God; and how they are all connected. The book offers just one single mental shift to live fulfilled in all areas.
