The Mountain Is You

  • Transforming self-sabotage into self-mastery. 
    • 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.
