Description

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.

    I loved everything about the book. Really touched me to the core about everything I can’t express to others and made me more aware of myself and my own thoughts. I would recommend it to anyone for any point in their lives.
  • A good reminder of how to live

    A reminder that remembering to allow what is and not hang onto it or force it to be something other than what it is will allow and spurn you to grow and find greater peace. Beautiful poignant and meaningful for our time.

    This was an incredible read for me. It provoked so many thoughts within myself and conversations with those around me about how we, as people, think and self sabotage. I HIGHLY recommend you buy this and then buy copies for friends and family. It’s my new favorite book and I’ll be reading this a few more times!
