The Mountain Is You

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.

    This quickly made it on my list of favourite books. It’s so insightful. It educated me on how to notice self sabotaging behaviours and then gave advice on how to change them. It’s covered in page markers and I plan on reading it again (and again) and taking notes. Incredible.
