Description

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 ideas

The upper limit idea touches most probably everyone. The book was a real eye opener especially the information about Einstein Time. Highly Recommended.

Livre

Qu'est-ce qui a pu vous déplaire dans le livre The Big Leap ?

Je ne voyais ni queue ni tête

Qu'aurait-pu faire Gay Hendricks pour rendre le livre plus agréable ?

il aurait du aller droit au but au lieu de tourner en rond. Je reste sur ma faim

Est-ce que Gay Hendricks a effectué un bon travail pour différencier les caractères ? Comment ?

oui

Vous n'avez pas aimé ce livre audio… mais avait-il des qualités pour se racheter ?

non je ne l'aurais jamais acheté si j'avais su que ca tournerait en rond comme cela.

Avez-vous d'autres commentaires ?

non

Inspiring, useful, a little preachy but VERY good

Thought-provoking, inspiring, a little preachy but otherwise VERY good...

I agree with other reviews that this book starts off feeling a little anthonyrobbinesque (yes I did just make that word up haha) - but I was intrigued to see where it went, and how it developed.
I found it extremely useful more as a springboard for exploring my own situation and my own limits. I am somewhat skeptical by nature, and so took the book as I do any self-help resource - with a good grain of salt and an open mind.
I would say that anyone expecting a manual for success will probably be somewhat disappointed - but anyone with the courage to look inside themselves and honestly ask what holds them back from happiness and success will find the book inspiring and thought provoking.
No book holds "the answers" in itself, but I think this book could help people to begin really *looking* for the answers.
I'm listening to this for the 2nd time, and am buying a copy for a friend. I think that speaks as loud as any long-winded review, hm? ;)

Changes my life

This book has changed my life. The way I live think act respond. The hours that were once days are now minutes as I embrace Einstein Time. The concepts I share with those around me. I bet I've accidentally sold dozens of copies of this book just by how much I tell others about its influence. I've listened to it 10 times now and am making my Big Leap into the life I've always meant to create.

On my third listen

It might take me years to implement all the wisdom in this book, but thanks to this book, I will take a lighthearted, 'hmm' approach to the learning. I was so ready for this. Between Don Miguel Luiz, Gary Zukav, Chopra, Byron Katie and now Hendricks...life is amazing and ever more amazing all the time.

Inspirational, uplifting, transformative... how can I add stars?

Breaking Your Personal Glass Ceiling

This book is really eye opening. Does this sound like you – You have success and things are going very well. Then something goes wrong and you end up back where you were. Has that happened in your career, with your finances or your relationships? If you said yes, The Big Leap is for you. It is about how to recognize your upper limit behavior and break through you self imposed glass ceiling.

Okay, but it's still lacking

The beginning is powerful, but then the book turns dull and inconsistent. It tries to be inclusive to many things, but lost my attention -and my interest- in the process.

This really gets you thinking... life-changing!!

I'm in the process of reinventing myself in my 50's having become a Life Coach a little over a year ago. I'm always looking to up-level myself and most books can be helpful but I find often times it's something I've heard before or maybe just didn't resonate with me. Well, this book is different... I immediately hit replay after I'd finished it because there's so much GOLD in it that I knew I had to listen again to absorb more of the incredible insights it offers. Gay has a great way of putting things... his playfulness and witty choice of words makes it fun to listen to and his passion makes you want what he's got. Love this book!!!

Monotonous & slow - sad, as was recommended highly

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The premise is engaging -- but the author's reading and clinical terminology killed it for me.

Full disclosure -- I (started) listening to it on a cross-country road trip directly after listening to "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck", which is charming, written for humans (not students -- or faculty -- as "The Big Leap seems to be"), and read by someone other than the author -- who knew how to engage an audience.

In comparison, "The Big Leap" is slow and technical. I only made it though 20 or 30 minutes of it before giving up and trying something else.

Sad, because it came highly recommended to me by a mentor/friend. Guess they hadn't "read" anything more friendly before "reading" this book.

What could Gay Hendricks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The terms the author used to identify various stages/actions/ideas in the book were long and forgettable. In fact, I've forgotten them all, so can't think of a specific example -- but they seemed to only made sense to someone who committed to reading/listening to the entire book (who heard them often enough for them to stick).

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The homogeneous tone of the author's voice killed it for me -- getting a trained narrator to read this book would have helped make it more palatable.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Big Leap?

Didn't make it far enough to answer this...

Any additional comments?

Thanks for trying -- it seems to help lots of people -- I'm just not one of them.

Game Changer

This book was recommended to me by a friend and boy am I glad that I listen to her. This book is a game changer. Within the first five minutes I knew I was in the right place. Halfway through the book, things started shifting in my life. I'm so thankful for it.

Chock full of important concepts

The Big Leap is full of wisdom and practical, applicable steps. I appreciate the depth of this book-it reflects a profound knowledge in psychology, relationship, spirituality and human potential. This is the real deal. I have at least 3 big new concepts from this book that I'm certain will be pivotal to my life. Thank you, Gay Hendricks.
The audio is read by the author, but don't be wary potential buyers. I often am disappointed with author-read material because they often don't have the "polish" of the professional readers. But Gay Hendricks' reading is an easy listen. The audio has the feeling of a caring friend/coach/ therapist imparting material they truly care about. Really, I can't say enough about this book. Get it.

Great inside with missing steps

This book is good and you feel the authors intention radiating to help. It has some good ideas and explains some stranger behavior we find ourselves. Some parts aren't 100% clear in execution (einstein time) or a little bit un focused here and there. Definitely a recommendation.

Amazing!

The rather boring cover image does no justice to this book, the contents were incredibly Actionable, specify, and good to know, the narrator quite fun in a fatherly way and the connection to the universe and subconcious mind priceless. Enjoyed it very much like a watermelon slice on a hot day ;) will revisit often!

Great Concept - second half could be shortened

The narrator has a great, calming voice and the concept of of upper limit is vividly told. After understanding the concept, the narrator repeats himself in the second half, which could be shortened.

Great insight on the Upper limit idea

I really enjoyed the new ideas and ways of thinking the author shares with us through his book and audiobook.
