I feel as if some books resonate with you at different times of your life. Currently, this is where I am at this moment in time, and this book has been an absolute game-changer. I legit listened to this book three times this week as I know it will have a significant impact on my life going forward.
Throughout my life, I have accomplished big goals only to find myself sabotaging my success and having to start from square one all over again.
It made no sense to me until now why I felt so undeserving of my success and held myself back for years from achieving anything more significant than my limited view of what I deserved in life.
The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks has helped me to understand a new view of what he calls our "Upper Limit Problem."
It's as if we have a built-in thermometer on what we can experience in life regarding our happiness, success, wealth, love, and anything that makes our life feel amazing. And once we passed what we perceive as our comfortable success setting. We knock ourselves right back down to our comfort zone, where we no longer have to make a breakthrough.
We can usually spot an upper limit problem occurring when we pick a fight with our spouse, spend too much money, overeat, drink too much, or get sick.
It usually always follows times where we have achieved something great, have happy moments with our kids, or even just amazing times with your significant other.
I didn't realize that following each of these great moments in life was a voice in my head that said I couldn't have these things — a voice telling me that I was undeserving of such joyous moments in life.
Well, fast forward to now. These stories were never true. We create new stories for ourselves daily. Being able to spot when these times arise has allowed me to continually work at breaking through these upper limit problems and raise the comfort setting in my life too much higher standards.
The Big Leap is my book choice for the week. I hope it helps you to create and live the life you want to live.
