Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway is an awesome book. I have a huge library of self help and personal improvement and wellness books. I find this to be one of the better books I have read on the subject of how to break you old habits and get up
And do something. It really is about positive thinking. The author Susan Jeffers is obviously very passionate about the subject and this really comes through in every chapter. There are many very useful exercises and a lot of good points in this book that will carry you far in improving your life. I heard about this book in several podcasts I had listened too and it was recommended highly. I found myself doing a lot of highlighting. As with any self help book it contains a lot of great ideas but ultimately they are worthless unless the reader acts on them. ( )

Feel the Fear not only empowers by showing ways to shift one's perspective, it reminds us that we always have a choice in every situation and not choosing is a choice in itself. Sometimes it's easy to lose touch with our power to choose, to allow fear to stop us in our tracks. Jeffers offers practical exercises to re-focus and re-channel one's fear into something that helps instead of hinders. And she reminds us that it's a journey, not a destination, so facing and embracing fear will be a lifelong adventure.

More than ten years ago I gave my copy of an earlier edition of this book to a young dental assistant who was having trouble asserting herself at work. She later told me how much it had helped her. She left dental work and helped her husband set up their own company in a completely different field. I have just bought two copies of this new edition knowing that at some time in the future they will be equally helpful to someone who needs just the sort of encouragement and practical assistance Ms Jeffers provides. If she had not had the perseverance to get the book published against discouragement and lack of interest, thousands of people would have been worse off. ( )

Book description
Wat houdt ons tegen om de persoon te zijn die we willen zijn, om dedingen te doen die we willen doen?
Het antwoord - de basis van alle antwoorden - is angst. Angst om beslissingen te nemen, om te spreken in het openbaar, om van baan te veranderen, om auto te rijden, om een bekende op te bellen, maar ook angst om een relatie te beginnen of te beëindigen, om alleen te zijn, om oud te worden... Waaruit onze angst ook bestaat, het is een levensfeit waar niemand aan ontkomt. Angst kan echter ook verlammend werken en leiden tot gevoelens van onzekerheid, frustratie, besluiteloosheid, kwaadheid of hulpeloosheid. En dat is niet nodig!
Psychologe Susan Jeffers leert ons om de angstgevoelens die ons blokkeren te herkennen, te accepteren en er overheen te stappen. Met begrip en humor leert ze ons stap voor stap die angst weliswaar te voelen, maar tóch die dingen te doen die we eigenlijk willen doen. De adviezen en technieken die ze ons aanreikt zijn gebaseerd op de cursussen die ze geeft en die al duizenden mensen geholpen hebben op de weg naar een beter leven.
