The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level (Hardcover)

by Gay Hendricks (Author)


"Gay has the corner on living life well... he has a glorious love relationship with his wife and he is hugely successful. There is no better person to inspire us all to be the best we can be at every level." (Mariel Hemingway, author of Mariel's Kitchen and Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out )

"Gay Hendricks is a great role model for true success. He enjoys abundance and a deep connection with his own spiritual essence, and at the same time has lived for three decades in a thriving marriage. Now, he shows us how to do it for ourselves." (Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Cracking the Millionaire Code )

"Gay Hendricks' positivity, his love, his genius fill me with hope. And in, The Big Leap, he once again names a pattern that I have always been aware of in myself but never quite brought to consciousness. Now that I have, there's no going back. " (Geneen Roth, author of When Food is Love and The Craggy Hole in My Heart )

Product 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 bestselling 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 one thousand 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.

This is a profound work. Hendricks zeros the reader right in on the primary limiting factors which keep a person down, living small, living a life of bland milquetoast instead of a life of richness, love, fun, adventure and success.

Who is this book for? It's for anyone with a small voice in the back of their mind or buried deep in the hidden crevices of their heart that screams "I want more" -- but you just don't know how to get there, or don't know where to start looking for the keys to freedom.

Fulfillment, joy, success and love are available for every man and woman on this planet -- but only if you are willing to go for it and make your dreams into reality. The first step is to have a dream, and this book will get you off your arse and moving in the direction of daring to have a dream at all.

If you are living at anything less than your full potential, or if you are wondering "Is this all there is to life?" then this book is truly your friend.

Great book!, April 21, 2009

I just read this book and it is amazing! This is the first "self help" book I have read and I found Dr. Hendricks writing style to be easy to read and the text really flowed. I have always had that thought in the back of my mind that there was something missing. This book has shown me very clearly and practically what the one problem in my life really is and how to solve it.
