'Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway' By Susan Jeffers

'Feel the fear and do it anyway' is the best book I have found so far to learn how to deal with fear - any type of fear.

Through her warm, loving and compassionate tone, Susan Jeffers takes you on a journey of discovery to put you in touch with your internal guidance and power. She talks from experience, and her advice really is valuable.

'Feel the fear and do it anyway' explains what lies at the bottom of any type of fear. As she puts it:

"If you knew you could handle anything that came your way, what would you possibly have to fear?"

The book's core message that we can handle anything comes supported by five truths about fear, which are revealing and soothing.

Besides, this book also contains many enlightening ideas, which all contribute to help you grow your trust in yourself and your personal power:

  • The Chatterbox. "This is the little voice inside, the voice that tries to drive you crazy - and often succeeds!". 

    'Feel the fear and do it anyway' shows you clearly how to deal with the chatterbox, and offers many ways to transform it into a kind, loving voice.

  • The power of choice. You are in control - you are not a victim. You do have choices and a large range of possibilities to react to any situation in whichever way you want. 

    Among another tools, you will find a table of words which will help you to move from a powerless position to a powerful one.

  • Approval. This sometimes is the cause of our conflict. As Susan Jeffers explains, "[...] One of the reasons we react so hostilely when others don't support us is our need for approval. [...] The less you need someone's approval, the more you are able to love them."

  • The No-Lose model to taking decisions. The book explains how we can change our perspective regarding taking decisions, so that whichever choice we take we're always taking the "right" one.

  • "How whole is your 'whole life'?" I found this model particularly useful to us women, who tend to give a lot of weight to romantic relationships, and thus tend to forget about other areas of our lives.

    This model helps to create a life which is really "whole", with or without a romantic relationship.

This is no doubt one of the best books that you can read to get to know yourself better and to learn to deal with fear of any kind.

Besides, 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' is full of stories, and it's engaging and interesting - not only an easy read, but a very enlightening one too.
