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 found this book at a really rough time in my life and I felt like all the words were helping me at my current situation. It can sometimes seem repetitive but overall, really good book for self reflection

    I loved everything about this book. I’m at this point where I’m ready to take accountability, stop repeating cycles and stop self sabotaging. So this book is the guidance I needed to help with my journey. I feel like was able to really tap in, heal more and gain inner power and peace.

    This book offers one of the most beautifully and intuitively presented responses to the question “What is the purpose of life?” that I have had the pleasure of reading.
