Summary

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.

Why is it so hyped up?

The only reason I can think of why this book is overly hyped is lack of basic life experiences. Because if you’re over 20 it is generally a universal experience to go through the things the author describes in the book and find your own unique way to deal with it.

Apart from that, my previous book on Audible was the Atomic Habits. The fist half of the Mountain is You is an oversimplified version of Atomic Habits word for word with no research or supporting materials. If that’s not bad enough, I can clearly hear her mixing the book the Vortex by Abraham Hicks into her writing, which should be identified as a teaching school if it’s used.

This book is a pure, undiluted “motivational speaker” book, in the worst sense. I could barely finish it also because of the annoyance that the voice caused (but I can never just put a book down after starting). The narrator tries too hard to be “joyous” and it shows.

2 stars because some beginners on the topic might be inspired to read more on it.

Perfection

Brianna Wiest has written a few hours of narrated perfection. This audiobook will
Prove more useful than months of 1-2-1 psycho therapy. It is the best book I’ve ever read/heard on the subject of experiencing enlightenment. Get it. Trust me.

Ps. The guy at the top of this review chain sounds bitter and jealous to me.

A great book for framing how we limit ourselves

I love how the author helps one make sense of how our behaviors and beliefs sabotage our own success. What really stuck with me how she explains adjustment shock and how a great success can often be followed by a great depression and why.

No solutions?

I felt like the book pointed out all the obstacles we face in our minds, but very little practical methods to surpass them. I spent my time relating to some of the challenges, but being left thinking “Okay? So what’s the solution?” And so overall the book became useless for me, it only served to point out the obvious. I had expected some really ground breaking tools to use given how popular the book is!

good book interesting

Good book, interesting read. Would suggest getting this as a physical book rather than audible as lots of thought provoking questions and you really need to stop and think about it. Audible keeps playing, then you're onto another topic, so you dont get to delve deep into thoughts

Empowering

This is fantastic book. It really makes it clear that the biggest obstacle in our way is us not the actual obstacle! Once you realise you have the ability to change the internal obstacles one becomes empowered.
