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, 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.… (mer)

The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level is one of those books that has been making the podcasting circuit. Dr. Gay Hendricks makes the case that there is an Upper Limit Problem, which prevents us from achieving our true potential. He noted that a lot of the upper limit problems originate from triggers we picked up when we were younger. Because a lot of people were recommending this book as a way to overcome these barriers, I thought it was important to take a look at it. I found it quite enlightening. It was one of the books I set up for my February 2018 Reading List. Read more ( )

I’m not sure about this one. It really pushed at my threshold of cheesiness, but I feel as though it did have some good things to think about. ( )

The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks is a popular book for advancing entrepreneurs because it calls out what stops us from growing: Our upper limit problem.

We all have an upper limit problem. I equate it to banging your head on the ceiling. You try to ascend to your next level, but your Ego stops you – and sometimes in the most painful of ways.

Hendricks weaves in many success stories (including his own) to help illustrate his points – and the stories will sound very familiar. It’s strangely comforting to know that successful people like Bonnie Raitt dealt with upper limit problems, too.

The Big Leap breaks down why we have an upper limit problem, how to move past our mindset blocks, how to figure out what activities lie in our Zone of Genius, and how to stay in our Zone of Genius. You won’t be left wondering how to move to the next level of your life and business.

My big takeaways:

#1: I am not living in my Zone of Genius.

In Chapter One, Hendricks discusses how our activities fall into one of four main zones: The Zone of Incompetence, The Zone of Competence, The Zone of Excellence, and The Zone of Genius.

He recommends that we strive to live 70 percent of our time in our Zone of Genius.

I’ve got some property in the Incompetence and Competence Zones, but where I LOVE to be is in my Zone of Excellence. I’m making a pretty good living doing stuff in my Zone of Excellence, but I’m restless. I’m not fulfilled. And now I know why. Time for a leap!

#2: I believe success will bring more burdens.

I am working through this, but here are my limiting beliefs around success:

  1. Being successful means I have to work all the time with too many appointments on my calendar.

  2. People who are successful are burdened by having people rely on them for their livelihood.

  3. Successful people spend more time managing people than doing what they love.


Ouch, it hurts to even type these limiting beliefs out. Do they resonate with you too?

How The Big Leap relates to entrepreneurs:

It’s not a bad marketing plan, or your lack of Facebook ad knowledge, or a less-than-stellar subject line that’s stopping you from growing.

It’s your mindset. It’s the crap wedged deeply in your unconscious and subconscious.

You have to address this crap to move forward and live your potential.

And that’s where books like The Big Leap come in. The Big Leap spells out exactly how to discover what’s holding you back – and how to leap forward.

It’s a book to not only read – but keep. One of my entrepreneurial friends reads it once a year. I can see why. For now, get your copy and break through your upper limit problem. The world needs you! ( )
