I wish I had read it 20 years ago!,
This review is from: Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway: How to Turn Your Fear and Indecision into Confidence and Action (Paperback)I had heard of this book often enough, but never read it. As they say when the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear. If you are really struggling with your life this book will give you heart, if you have been working on yourself it will remind you of all that you have learnt and prompt you to keep it up. So what is it all about? Firstly, it points out that everybody gets fearful, but that some people rise to the challenges they face more positively than others and so succeed in their lives, while others just seem to shrink, becoming more and more overwhelmed by everything. This book shows you how to turn your thoughts around to the positive, to switch off your inner nag and just get on with life. It isn't corny, it isn't gimmicky, but it is truly uplifting and calming, and it works. Last night my dishwasher broke and rather than get into a stew about finding the time to get it repaired and the expense etc as I would have done I just remembered ' I'll handle it' and got it sorted. This is a fairly trivial example, but those of us who are prone to worry and anxiety, are easily overwound by the most mundane things, so it is so good to have some tools to get life into the right perspective.

If you loved this book (who doesn't) then you might like to know that Susan Jeffers now has a licensed & approved UK Tutor, Diane MacDowall, who runs 2 day 'Fear Busting' workshops based on the 'Feel The Fear & Do It Anyway' book.

I had this book many years ago when I was feeling really screwed up and worrying about almost everything - it helped enormously. Your description is so good I couldn't write a better one myself - so I'll endorse yours.

I find that the tape, CDs by Susan Jeffers are a good feel listen to while you are relaxing on a bed. Inspiring.
