Book Description

1 Sep 2003

Nobody knows what will happen in the next moment of our lives. Whatever is in store for us, the only thing we CAN be sure of is that nothing in life is certain. And since we all fear the unknown, life's uncertainty can be a constant source of worry to us.

But, as bestselling author Susan Jeffers explains, life doesn't have to be one worry after the next, a steady stream of 'what if's', and a constant attempt to create a secure haven for ourselves. In EMBRACING UNCERTAINTY she emphasises that an unknown future doesn't prevent a rich and abundant life, and shows how by enjoying life's unpredictability we transform ourselves from a position of fear to one filled with excitement and potential. Through invaluable case-studies, exercises and her pragmatic wisdom, Susan convinces us, above all, that life is exhilarating because of, not in spite of, uncertainty.

Product Description


Susan Jeffers has done it again! EMBRACING UNCERTAINTY is a wonderful book with a huge payoff...peace of mind about the future. It is an entertaining read filled with invaluable insights and unique exercises you can take with you on your exciting Journey through life. (Jack Canfield, Co-Author of the #1 New York Times)

Now more than ever, Susan Jeffers' wisdom feels like a precious gift. Her counsel is profound and meaningful in such challenging times. (Marianne Williamson)

In Embracing Uncertainty, Jeffers describes, with brilliant clarity, how to deal with ambiguity in life. The exercises in this book helped me learn how to reach within myself and find certainty. Like Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, I'll be quoting this classic over and over again. (Mona Lisa Schulz, MD, PhD, author of Awakening Int)

Original, courageous and brilliant! Jeffers alters the mind without drugs, freeing it to free us to become ourselves.

Susan Jeffer's books are always fun to read, and she has done it again with Embracing Uncertainty.

She leads the reader through the art of enjoying life in her own unique style!

(Louise L. Hay, Author of You Can Heal Your Life an)

This is the first Susan Jeffers book I've read and I highly recommend it. It really has helped to chnage my outlook on life for the better. Instead of wishing things were different or hoping that things will go the way you want them to, Jeffers suggests you detach yourself from your expectations and disappointments and just trust that whatever is happening is all ultimately for the best. This book is well written with a warmth and sense of fun which even had me laughing to myself on the bus. (The guy sitting next to me was having a good read over my shoulder, too!)
The only reason i don't give it 5 stars is because the book leaves you wanting just that bit more information - I guess i'll have to read some of her other books..!

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Jeffers does it again! 2 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Susan Jeffers has written another extremely useful book expanding on some of the ideas to be found in Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway and some brand new areas as well. The book is extremely helpful with lots of exercises which I am still working through but the ones I have used were brilliant. A sense of calm and peace can be achieved by reading this book and doing the exercises but as always Susan reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously and to have fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Embracing Uncertainty 23 Jan 2006
By A L.
I have read a few of Susan Jeffers books now and to date I feel this is the best.The book is easy to read and follow. It provides numerous excercises that you can complete in your own time. If you take up some of the recommendations from the book I believe you will look on life in a more positive and less stressful way. I have found the book to be a great help but as she says we all need reminders, so I will be re-reading the book at intervals. I wonder if anyone else will benefit from the book as much as I do ? Anyway enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Let go and enjoy life 7 Jan 2003
I bought this book when I was facing a lot of changes in my life. I did not know which way to turn. Reading this book was a relief. The exercises helped me relax and not worry so much about controlling the outcome of every event in my life. The book helped me see uncertainty as an exciting journey, rather than something to be feared. A great read and something that gets better with each reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful unlifting read 4 Aug 2002
By A Customer
I bought this book because at times I feel the need for a spiritual read. This was one of those times. This is a very practical book which has plenty of visualisation exercises which I am pleased to say I am incorporating into my life. It's not your typical spiritual book but it does help to put things in a different perspective. I found that I was constanly thinking negative things about my life. After reading this book I can say I am changing, for the better, and will continue to use this book as a reference point. It's an uplifting book written in a very positive way. A definite for your bookshelves.

This is my favourite Susan Jeffers' book by far. I have read most of her books and love them all but this particular one spoke to me more than others did. I absolutely love the exercises that she presents in this book and they really do work! It has certainly improved my thinking and attitude to life. I am more positive and ready to move forward with my life with more confidence and faith. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would love to change their life for the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars really helpful 20 Jun 2012
By katka
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
after being like the author seeking certainty all the time and driving myself mad in the process i might add i decided to look into going with the flow and it really worked for me with certain things but others i couldn't stop hoping about and i knew i had to give it up. hope has never been a good thing for me, whenever i have hoped I've been hurt, disappointed and become really insecure about so with the help of this book i'm going with i wonder now, hope is banned from my vocabulary! i've found that it's a much better way to be and i've become less controlling over how i want certainties but at the same time it terrifies me but i'm sure i'll get there!
i've been told this book is very pessimistic and so must i be for reading it but the person who said that neither understands it or read it so they can't say much! i happen to think that hope has its downsides and it can leave you feeling stuck and insecure if you're not careful.
