Your Big Leap Year: A Year To Manifest Your Next-Level Life…Starting Today!

St. Martin’s Essentials. Feb. 2024. 432p. ISBN 9781250292797. pap. $20. SELF-HELP
In this sort-of sequel to The Big Leap, Hendricks takes his idea of upper limit problems, that there is one hidden issue (worrying, blaming, deflecting, etc.) that is holding a person from their true potential, and applies it to the daybook self-help subgenre. Unlike titles such as Cyndie Spiegel’s A Year of Positive Thinking, this book does not start on January 1. By having it go from day one to day 365, readers can begin the process at any time. The tasks, or “daily leaps,” are broken into three cycles, with the beginning setting the foundation for more ambitious work toward the end. It starts slowly, with the repeated emphasis on “committing to expanding [one’s] genius,” but gradually, and positively, the title provides useful tips about recognizing self-sabotage, letting go of worries, improving relationships with loved ones, confronting addiction, and more.
VERDICT This title would pair well with journaling. Once readers absorb the concepts of upper-limit problems and genius, they will find this work is an approachable guide to attitude and habit improvements.
