Fear of tackling an issue with your boss, fear of getting to grips with a problem in your home. Fear of change. Fear of taking control...
Everyone has their own list of fears which seem to run through their lives. Susan Jeffers' inspiring and mould breaking book shows us how to become powerful in the face of our fears. Feel the fear, she argues, but do it anyway.

Fantastic audio-book read by the author, who gives you real tools to help you get past your fears and make decisions about what you really want to do and have in your life. I've used the book version many times to overcome fears and resistance to change. It has helped me to achieve and succeed in many areas by showing me how to cope with emotional blocks I had in place that prevented me from attaining various types of goals.The audio provides a motivational supercharge to feeling your fear and taking action anyway. It's an audio you'll want to listen to everytime you feel scared to take a certain action, big or small. Highly recommended, because her tools really do work. Worth more in value than the price. On my bookshelf for life.
I really enjoyed this. Very powerful messages and a lot of common sense advice. I 'feed my brain' regularly with self help books in between my fiction reads fix and this was ine I have been thinking of reading for a while but never got aroind to. Glad I did. Very motivational and useful but more importantly, it teaches us not to fear fear itself. Geeat book
Meehan is a best selling author and superstar
Out more energy and inspiration into the delivery. The content was okay however she sounded too nice like an log grandmother. To move past fear we must come from a place if courage, strength, and faith. I did not feel any if these emotions from her. It was more like her reading a book with a big smile in her face. She sounds timid, friendly, and delicate!! I didn't feel moved to breakthrough my fears at all
Maybe the author. Get an engaging emotional author with passion and energy
"A gentle touch yet incredibly powerful"
Jeffers doesn't say anything new - especially if you are already familiar with Covey, Tolle, Ruiz or any other amazing author. The pace is bit too slow for my liking as well...
However, what is really powerful about the book is Jeffers approach to emotions, compassion and the power of positive thinking - the way only a beautiful, peaceful and harmonious woman could do. This will touch the very core of you. She does that gently but confidently.
"Worth the purchase"
I started the book but was unable to continue because I was missing out on text and could not fully take it all in. I feel the audio worked better for me.
"Life changing wisdom"
I bought this book and listened to it after hearing somone quote "feel the fear and do it anyway". I have literally found this book lifechanging as I had struggled with fear preventing me from doing new things and going new places in the past.... over the past 18 months I have learned to travel on the tube without my previous fear, started my own business and take new opportunities when ever they present themselves. Give this book a listen and then give it a try. My family are amazed at what I will attempt now that was not possible before.... the book may not have been the only factor in the change but it certainly was a massive contributing factor.
"Worth listening to"
A wide explanation on what holds us back because of fear, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and negative self talk.
"Better to read it yourself!"
This is a classic of the self help genre. I loved it as a book and bought the audible version so I could enjoy it again whilst travelling. The narration by the author filled me with The Fear and I haven't been able to finish it. It is a style and tone of delivery that may well work for you but I simply couldn't bear.
I didn't get there.
Great book, awful listening. Read it if you can.
Every time l can't make a decision l listen to this audio and my mind becomes clearer.
Brilliant so inspired too get on in life stop playing the victim card.
"I wouldn't bother recommending"
Starts off ok, but 2/3 of the book is mostly useless cliche self help fluff repeated in different ways that you hear and see everywhere, honestly there are plenty of blog posts and YouTube videos that will give you just as much for free
"Can change life for good"
Its an amazing book... This book actually changes life for good. no matter your situation, you can also be a testifier one day
Loved it. Really useful tips on how to move forward in life regardless of the fear we have.
