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.

    "Brilliant and Thought Provoking"

    I found the narrative slow, but that's because the readers ( authors ) tone. Which as I continued to read came to like. The book it self has great information on Upper Limits and how to remove these self sabotaging thoughts.

    I would recommend The Big Leap to anyone wanting to improve their quality of life.

    "One of the best books I've read"

    Loved it! Gay Hendricks did a phenomenal job at explaining a cap that we all have placed on ourselves and how we can break through it.

    "Highly Reccomend!!!"

    Gary's narration was perfect...I loved the stories/examples he included along with his light sense of humor. I was able to apply concepts he shared almost immediately. Such juicy material that I'll definitely be listening to it again several times so I can be sure everything sunk in!!!

    "Eye opening"

    This book has literally opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking, being, and living. I now realize why I do the things I do and the influences behind them. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
    This book can help anyone who is struggling to understand why they do certain things.
