The Mountain Is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery
About this deal
It is very hard to show up as the person you want to be when you are surrounded by an environment that makes you feel like a person you aren’t. Brianna Wiest, The Mountain Is You I'm actually surprised how this book made me know myself better. It introduced ideas that I never thought about. It changed my mindset.
Perfecționismul- se întâmpla pentru ca iti este frica de eșec, te simți vulnerabil sau crezi ca nu ești atat de bun pe cât iti dorești sa creadă altii ca suntem. If you are so tired of being too hard on yourself but don't know why and how to stop, this book is for you. If you just feel too much and can't seem to let go of the things hurting you, it's for you. Everything you lose becomes something you are profoundly grateful for. With time, you see that it was not the path. It was what was standing in your way.”I think I may have marked more of this book than not. Due to the nature of books on self, it's hard to say whether I would recommend this book to you. If you are looking for someone else to provide answers, this isn't the book. This is more like a quiet voice in your ear helping to give you new places to look inside for those answers.
I really, really want to love this book because it seems to have a cult following on BookTok and has a promising premise. But it’s ridiculously repetitive and doesn’t bring up any new, groundbreaking ideas I have not heard of before. Nor does it reinforce current ways to escape self-sabotage and help me see them in a new light.This is a book about self-sabotage. Why we do it, when we do it, and how to stop doing it—for good. Let’s be clear about something: To put an end to your self-sabotaging behavior absolutely means that change is on the horizon. Your new life is going to cost you your old one. It’s going to cost you your comfort zone and your sense of direction. It’s going to cost you relationships and friends. It’s going to cost you being liked and understood. It doesn’t matter. The people who are meant for you are going to meet you on the other side. You’re going to build a new comfort zone around the things that actually move you forward. Instead of being liked, you’re going to be loved. Instead of being understood, you’re going to be seen. All you’re going to lose is what was built for a person you no longer are. Remaining attached to your old life is the first and final act of self-sabotage, and releasing it is what we must prepare for to truly be willing to see real change.”
