Gay Hendricks discovered the power of self-acceptance and the limitations it imposes through his work with brilliant engineers and executives at Stanford University in the 1970s. Observing these high-achieving individuals experience tremendous success at work, only to face conflict and arguments in their personal lives, led him to a profound realization. He recognized a pattern within himself as well, where moments of joy and accomplishment were often followed by self-sabotage. This prompted him to delve deeper into the concept of an "upper limit", which hindered individuals from fully embracing their achievements.
