Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author. 

From the powerhouse Mind Body Green calls "the Brené Brown of Wonder" comes a self-help audiobook that will reframe the way we look at ourselves and the world and help us reach our full potential.

"Amber Rae's very personal journey of moving from a constructed identity of self limiting beliefs to her true self - in the domain of creativity, wonder, joy and higher consciousness - offers inspiring insights and lessons for anyone wanting to unfold their infinite potential." (Deepak Chopra)

"Amber Rae is the Elizabeth Gilbert of her generation." (Stacy London, New York Times best-selling author of The Truth About Style)

Wonder is what we’re born with. Worry is what we learn. Now is the time to return to wonder.

Why do we hold back from pursuing what matters most? Why do we listen to the voice inside our head that tells us we're not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough? How can we move beyond the fear and doubt that prevents us from creating a life that reflects who we truly are? 

Choose Wonder over Worry is your official invitation to face your fears, navigate your discomfort, and rewrite the "worry myths” in your mind that keep you from being your best and truest self. Journey with inspirational speaker and artist Amber Rae as she connects you with your voice of worry and wonder, teaches you to listen to your emotions rather than silence them, and encourages you to seize your dreams. Through a thoughtful blend of vulnerability, soulfulness, and science, Amber Rae guides you in expressing the fullness of who you are and the gifts you’re here to give. You don’t have to be held back by worry when wonder awaits you every moment of every day.

Worry or wonder: Which will you choose? 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

This book will make your life easier

I finished Amber Rae's 4 hour and ten minute audio book in one day. It was an immersive seminar about how to create that pivotal pause between our thoughts and our action. The thing we've learned from thought leaders like Mike Dooley, Shaman Durek, Louise Hay, Iyanla Vanzant, and Wayne Dyer is that our thoughts create our reality. Amber Rae gives dozens of pieces of practical application shifting yourself into a positive mindset from a spin-out. Without spiritually bypassing, she knows how to create a new and easier reality by embracing what each emotion we don't like can teach us. Feeling jealousy, imposter syndrome, or shame (to name a few) are yucky but Amber tells us how to become BFF with your shame in order to let it disappear. At a $25 cover price the peace of mind afforded by this book is worth 100 times that value. You deserve to feel good.

not for me

I'm sure that this book will be loved by someone. Someone will be inspired. Someone will say, "yes! This is what I needed to hear!" but that someone is not me.

Everything in this book that was interesting to me was something I've heard before. I've read a lot of Seth Godin's books, and (not that he invented the genre, but still) a lot of this is rehashing ideas that he has covered very well.

The relationship/love advice felt really out of place to me. (I've been in a healthy marriage for 13 years. Someone else might better appreciate it.)

The foul language felt unprofessional. She sounded like a middle-school kid showing off by saying bad words. (Someone else might love her casual style.

I won't listen to this again. I recommend Godin's Poke the Box for a better treatment of a lot of the same concepts (like fear and failure). For material specific to creating fine art, I highly recommend Art & Fear instead.

This book will light a fire in, under, and around you!

This book is a raw and real, yet loving invitation to live our highest selves. I recognized myself in the stories Amber told, and having the thought “oh, wow I’m not alone” which I wasn’t expecting in this sort of book—books like this can often just feel like an expert talking at you and feel unattainable. The relatable quality inspired me to make some important shifts in my world from the first day of listening. This book is one I’ll revisit again and again. Can’t wait to get my hard copy to work within!!

Get a stern talking to from your new best friend

Listening to this book is like having your best friend sitting next to you in your living room (over coffee or—more likely—wine) and having a no-punches pulled conversation about where you are in your life and how you treat yourself and others. She doesn’t make false promises—just follow this ten step program and next year you’ll be making six figures and living in Bali! She’s simply asking if you are living truly and happily, and then shows the doors she’s found to help you get back on your own path.

Brilliant!

Shockingly honest, painful, heartwarming, words of wisdom from a creative genius. Everyone must read this book. I never wanted the words to stop or to finish the book. I feel touched deep down in my soul. Best book I have ever read!

Simply Amazing!

I have over a dozen audible books but this is the first one I have ever finished. This book feels like having a good and much needed conversation with a friend. I felt as if I was being heard even though I was the listener. I am inspired and motivated. There is a lot of reference to art (writing books and such) which is not my goal in life but everything she said I could easily translate to my own personal goals of being the type of Mom I strive to be and pursing my passions. I plan on listening to this book again, I am also going to buy the hard cover and share each topic with a group of teenagers I work with. Because this book is THAT good.

Common Sense Nothing New Here

This is a terrible book. I wanted to like it. I am a worrier and loved the title, but in fact it’s a lot of regurgitated stuff from other books I have read/listened. Not clear or actionable. Also language is kind of fluffy and not direct and to the point. I don’t know what stepping into my power or truth really means. I need something more straightforward and to the point.

Listened to it Multiple Times

I thought that because the book was short in page length, there wouldn’t be a lot to take away from it. I was wrong. I’ve had to listen to it a couple of times because there is a lot to walk away with. I don’t need a drawn out story line but Amber Rae manages to get her message across in a relatable way.
