This book is about self-sabotage.
Why we do it, when we do it, and how to stop doing it—for good.

Coexisting but conflicting needs create self-sabotaging behaviors. This is why we resist efforts to change, often until they feel completely futile. But by extracting crucial insight from our most damaging habits, building emotional intelligence by better understanding our brains and bodies, releasing past experiences at a cellular level, and learning to act as our highest potential future selves, we can step out of our own way and into our potential.

For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb.
In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.

    This is one of the hardest books I have ever read. Mentally speaking that is, this is a book I feel everyone should read once in their life. It challenges your perspective on life and if you truly want to change your life and can help give you that first step.

    I would like to thank the author for improving my mind at the beginning i didn’t feel the book due to reading it without absorbing it greatly But the second half of it was something else
  • Waste of Time

    Reading this book was an exercise in perseverance.I forced myself to finish it. It felt like a lot of advice that would come from a very young person with few life experiences, someone who is ill equipped to provide guidance.
