Book of the Week: The Mountain is You

The Mountain is You by Brianna Wiest

It was decent as far as self-improvement books go. It was insightful and I connected with a majority of the concepts, but I thought I’d feel a little more engaged and inspired to take more actions away from self-sabotage rather than just understand the concept.

However, the author reviewed the concept from A-Z, from triggers to overcoming obstacles.

It was interesting to be able to identify some of the unexpected triggers that underly self-sabotage; things we may not necessarily realize unless we dig deep within ourselves to connect trauma responses to sabotage potential. I really connected with the idea that we have a threshold for happiness, and if something in our lives “threatens” to surpass that into greater joy, something within us kicks up the sabotage potential as if we aren’t worth it.

There were definitely some gems and prompts for reflection that became a good takeaway for me from this. After all, we are our own worst enemy, and the sooner we understand the hows and whys behind our complicated self-relationship and subsequent behaviors, the better we can step into our best selves and lives.

Overall, I’d recommend this to anyone looking for new perspectives on their path to continuous self-improvement.
