Do you feel like every time you imagine the success you want, something keeps you from getting there?

Gay Hendricks in his book The Big Leap talks about the 4 Hidden Beliefs that keep us from living the best life possible.

  1. Feeling Fundamentally Flawed: This sounds like “There’s something really wrong with me that keeps me from getting what I want.”
  2. Disloyalty & Abandonment: This sounds like “I can’t have the success I want because I’ll leave others behind.”
  3. More Success is a Burden: This sounds like “I don’t really want to be more successful because that will be more work and I’m already overwhelmed.”
  4. Fear of Outshining Others: This sounds like “If I have the success I want, I’ll make others near and dear to me, look bad.”
