Publisher's Summary

What would you do if fear no longer stood in your way? What would happen if you were no longer afraid to dive in headfirst and go after your dreams, instead of feeling like you were sitting on the sidelines of your own life? What then?

We tell ourselves we are too busy to pursue our dreams. That there's no time, or that it's not practical. But what if the real reason we're putting off our goals is fear?

The fear that we're not good enough, not smart or talented or capable enough. It's the fear that others might laugh at us, or that we'll get hurt or be rejected, or that pursuing our true potential will simply be too hard. Most of all, it's the fear that we'll fail.

But courage doesn't mean we are never afraid. True courage means taking action despite the fear. True courage means doing it scared.

The question is - how? How do we face those fears and take that first step in the right direction? How do we overcome those obstacles that stand in our way and sometimes feel insurmountable?

In Do It Scared, popular blogger and podcast host Ruth Soukup will help you to:

  • Identify your own unique "Fear Archetype" - the specific type of fear that keeps you stuck - and learn how to conquer it.
  • Dare to start thinking bigger about your life and your goals.
  • Learn how to seek out honest feedback to accomplish big things.
  • Embrace the core beliefs you need to overcome different types of fears.
  • Discover why our magical idea of "balance" is totally overrated and let go of the guilt, once and for all.

Equal parts inspiration and tough love, Do It Scared combines easy-to-implement tips with the motivation to start making real changes that lead to big results. Get ready to get off the sidelines and jump into your own life as you dare to do it scared.

Life changing for me & at the exact right time!

This is amazing! It's a real life changer!

The full fear assessment I took from doitscared.com gave me a complete overview of how my top fears hold me back. At first I was surprised at my fear archetype, then sad that it had held me back for so long. But with Ruth's book, within a couple days I felt totally empowered and that I will never allow myself to think I am less than again.

I am also part of Ruth's Doing It Scared Community, participating in her live sessions and able to be more confident and productive than ever before. This came at a perfect time for me with a very imperfect life change. Thanks to Ruth, this book and her community support, I am now "doing it scared" much better than I ever imagined I could ever do!

The Reader. OMG

I can’t even pay attention to what is being said for trying to process the voice and the crazy inflections. Good god! Who talks like in real life. I’ll just buy the book. Can I get a refund on the audiobook please?

Highly Recommended!

I’m not usually a big fan of this type of books, but I fell in love with each chapter of this one, it really does help view life from a positive perspective and allows us to give a second thought to how we are managing our problems, relationship, goals and dreams. Thank you very much to the wonderful author :)

Energized

I enjoyed the book as well as the question and answer session. I discovered why I procrastinate. Fear of the challenge to do something to close to perfect. I have been tending to give up and settle. Good enough is good but pushing a bit further is amazing. Loved the book and content .
