- بخشی از کتاب
This is a book 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.
About the Author
Brianna is the author of several books, including the international bestsellers "101 Essays That Change The Way You Think" and "The Mountain Is You." In her own words, she says, "I believe that the root of being human is learning how to think. From this, we learn how to love, share, coexist, tolerate, give, and create. I believe the first and most important duty we have is to actualize the potential we were born with ? both for ourselves and for the world. The unspoken line of everything I write is: 'This idea changed my life.' I hope my books do that for you. I hope they deeply inspire you, and I hope they help you become the person you've always wanted to be."
