Publisher's Summary

A practical guide to overcoming fear from the daredevil who has walked on a tightrope across Times Square and the Grand Canyon.

Nik Wallenda is a seventh-generation member of the Flying Wallendas, a circus family known for performing dangerous feats without safety nets. Nik is known for his daring televised tightrope walks over Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Times Square, and an active volcano.

Nik has been walking the wire since he took his first steps, but he had never experienced fear until a tragic accident in 2017. The eight-person pyramid he and several members of his family were practicing collapsed, and five of its members fell 30 feet to the ground. While severely injured,  they all survived miraculously, but the accident changed Nik’s life forever. For the first time, he felt overwhelming fear, and Nik had to find it in himself to move on, release the past, and get back out on the wire.

Most of us will never walk a tightrope, but we face things that scare us every day. Whether putting ourselves out there socially or seeking a dream job, all of us allow anxieties and fears to hold us back. In Facing Fear, you will:

  • Discover how to overcome lifelong areas of personal fear.
  • Understand the importance of dealing with trauma to fully heal and move forward.
  • Gain the determination to pick yourself up, grow in faith, and purposely walk toward success one step at a time.

Facing Fear weaves parts of Nik’s personal story of the accident and how he conquered his fear with practical advice to help you overcome whatever fears are holding you back. This practical book will help you step out in faith and trust that God will hold you steady, even when you're afraid.

Bring Nik and his family's story to life with photos available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

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

Critic Reviews

"My friend, Nik Wallenda, is world famous for his death-defying aerial acrobatics and high wire performances. He is a living legend and one of the bravest men I've ever known. When he performs, his skill, meticulous preparation, and countless hours of practice are readily apparent. What we don't see, however, is the fear that he faces each time he takes to the wire. In his new book, Facing Fear, Nik offers his readers an honest and unvarnished look at the personal and painful experiences in his life and career that not only give rise to his fears, but also motivate him to push forward and to accomplish things never before achieved. Facing Fear will not only help you to overcome the fears you face in your own life, but will motivate you to find the faith and inspiration to achieve more than you ever thought you could. (Joel Osteen, New York Times best-selling author and senior pastor of Lakewood Church)

Perfect Timing for Facing & Overcoming Fear

I saw Nik perform his Niagara Falls and NY Times Square walk and was blown away by his focus and prayerful stance. I appreciated his honesty about his own periods of mental challenges, especially after a particularly bad incident. His journey is relatable and we can all find nuggets of wisdom from this memoir. This is both inspiring and motivational, and we could all benefit from the insights he shared in this age of Covid19. I love that he also mentioned Philippians 4:6-7. I needed to hear that...

Control your mind

This was an excellent book describing fear and how to control your mind a and focus on God. Narrator did an excellent job. Clear voice and fluctuated voice so it is not monotone at all.
