The books basic premise is, that your aim should not be to get rid of your fears. You should feel your fear, but not let it stop you from doing things you really want to do.
The book describes three levels of fear. The first level is the actual event that you fear - say losing you job. The second level is the deeper fear, triggered by the first level - eg. rejection (if being fired would make you feel rejected). Beneath that on the third level there's only one fear: The fear that you won't be able to cope. If you knew in advance that you could take it, there would be nothing to be afraid of. So all fear reduces to fear of not being able to cope.
This is interesting, because this means that the best way to handle your fear, isn't to make your life safer - it's to increase your abilities, or your faith in your abilities. The more you know you can handle, the less reason there is to fear.
This point is illustrated with several stories of people who have diminished their lives time and again, to keep safe. This doesn't reduce fear, quite the contrary, these people lived in perpetual fear. When some catastrophic event interfered with their reduced existence (say the death of a spouse), some of these people found that they were forced to reconnect with life, and that they could cope. And this reduced their fear.
The book also emphasizes positivity as a way to reduce fear. The book argues that you need to constantly train your positive thinking, or you'll revert to negative thinking.Read more ›
I can't speak highly enough about this book. Since I've bought it, my entire outlook has altered dramatically! I have probably put more into meeting my goals in the past month than I had in 3 years.
The book is positive, easy to read and at parts even humorous! I have become a fanatic about this book and am now expanding my self help library as this book really sold the concept to me. You really do take away what you want from this book, some chapters will apply more directly to others, but overall, it's a simple and effective way to alter how you think and how you approach life. Some people may disagree, however, I strongly believe that if you are willing to change your life and truly want amazing things to appear both in your personal attitude and others' towards you, then please buy this book!
