This book is so very powerful at helping you unravel "your story" - why you think and react the way to do and helps you identify areas of your life that are holding you back from achieving in your life. I had so many truths revealed to me as I pondered the questions that Gay poses.
Learn to live in the ZONE of GENIUS -- get out of the Zone of excellence or zone of competence where most of us stay. Your Zone of Genius is the set of activities you are uniquely suited to do. This book will help you DEFINE them.
The Four barriers that hold us back:
1. Believing we are fundamentally flawed somehow
2 False belief that by succeeding we are being disloyal to people in our past
3. False belief we are a burden in the world.
4. False belief that we must dim our own "light" so we won't outshine someone in our past.
Learn how to identify your "Upper Limit Problem" - the thoughts and actions that HOLD YOU DOWN.
I encourage you to use this as a text- take notes, highlight..etc. very powerful read. I loved the digital format because now I can go back to the list of my notes and highlights and read through them easily - what a gem!
There were 3 core concepts to understand in this book which could potentially transform your life if applied as instructed (I certainly will):
* The Upper-Limit Problem (ULP)
* The Ultimate Mantra
* Einstein Time
I also really liked the writing style and how the author was able to blend his personal story, anecdotes with the clearly expressed philosophy of his system. I wish all personal growth books were up to these standards (unfortunately most of them are not). The book just flows beautifully. I’m looking forward to reading the author’s other works and already signed up to his mailing list.
Favourite quote from the book:
"Life is at its best when love, money, and creativity are growing in harmony."
This was also the first book I read for 2018 as part of my project to read and review 100 books this year. You can find more on my blog via my Amazon profile page. The best thing is that I only paid $2 for the book as part of some daily deal or something. I bought a lot of books this past month! Can't wait to read everything. There's no better investment than books.

Thanks for reading and have a great day/year/life :)
The big idea in this book is that you are holding yourself back from being happier and more successful because we all have a "set point" when it comes to how happy/good we expect to be/feel. (And this set-point is based on our upbringing and childhood experiences). He gives 4 reasons in the book for this "upper limit" that we subconsciously give ourselves. When you recognize this you can stop sabotaging yourself, and allow yourself to do and achieve more to experience more and longer periods of happiness/contentment. It's really a great book and I am finding it helpful for my own ordinary life!
