Rebels, I’m devoting this episode to talk about my latest obsession, which is the book, The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. If you’ve noticed that when things get really good in one area of your life, another starts to fall apart, or if you’re working towards a goal and doing really well, but at the last minute fall short of getting there, this book is for you.
We’ve all been there, right? Or we at least can identify it in the people around us because it can be kind of hard to see it in ourselves. Things just happen unexpectedly or it’s bad luck, right? What I’ll be exploring is the author’s concept of your upper limit and how we create barriers to our own happiness and fulfillment.
This seriously blew my mind and I can’t wait for you to listen and assess how you might be doing the same in your life. It might sound a little crazy at first that we would do this to ourselves, but really understanding how and why is going to change everything.Sometimes we just cling to our idea that something is not possible for us and we literally argue in favor of our limitation.
