The Mountain is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery written by Brianna Wiest is about how we play a role in the outcomes of our lives. It goes into depth about how we must develop a deep understanding of ourselves in order to overcome the challenges we face in life and eventually master ourselves. Most of us need to reach rock bottom before we can truly recognize that we must master and understand ourselves.
One of the mountains we must overcome is self-sabotage. Self-sabotage can be an act of self-preservation and self-protection. If we are unaware of why we self-sabotage and the ways we self-sabotage, we will never be able to move past our self-sabotaging behaviors.
Self-mastery eventually comes when we reflect deeply on ourselves, and we use the insights we’ve learned to better ourselves and our outcomes.
