Banyen's Description: 

This is an important book.

Most of us believe we’ll finally feel satisfied and content 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 and results 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 Gay Hendricks calls the Upper Limit Problem, a negative emotional reaction that occurs when anything positive enters our lives. The Upper Limit Problem (“I cannot expand to my full potential because….”) 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 comprehensive program for overcoming this barrier, presented in a way that engages both the mind and heart. Working closely with more than a thousand extraordinary achievers in business and the arts—from rock stars to Fortune 500 executives—whose stories are featured, the book describes four hidden fears that are at the root of the Upper Limit Problem.

The Big Leap delivers a tested 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 calls our Zone of Genius.

We know how to feel bad. We have millions of nerve connections to registering pain. Certainly we have pleasure points in various places, too, but where are the mechanisms for ongoing natural good feeling? In the process of answering this, I was able to create the kind of life I had only dreamed about, as well as to help many others make their dreams come true. If any or all of that sounds good to you [this book is] the way to make it happen yourself.

Among Gay Hendricks’ other books are The Five Wishes, Conscious Breathing, and Conscious Loving. To find out more about Gay Hendricks and The Hendricks Institute visit
