Feel the Fear . . . and Do It Anyway

This book taught me to be okay with feeling fear.   I thought fear was something that was unique to me.   That I was the only one that felt this anxious feeling when speaking in public or talking to a new person.   I knew a lot of people but I was shy.   Not many people knew I was shy.   I realized that everyone has fear.   I learned to not let fear paralyze me.    Sometimes people over analyze a situation and stay paralyzed in analyzing it and never take action.

In business, there were many times that I had to make a presentation or speak in front of others.   A few times when I got in front of others I got hives on my chest because of being so nervous.    When I read this book, I allowed myself to get the hives and be okay with them.   I did not let the hives take over me and stop me from presenting.   I had a message to say and as soon as I got comfortable the hives would go away.    How horrible would it have been that I would not say what I wanted to say because of fear?

I am so thankful for this book because it taught me to allow myself to feel the feel and just do it anyway.

If you have any fears, this book is a must read.  Unfortunately they do not have this book on audio.   I did buy the kindle version to read again because it is that good.

I remember seeing this woman live in Manhattan.   Reading this book and seeing her live literally changed my life.  It allowed me to see fear in such a different light.   One of the key things I learned from this book was the feeling of not feeling “good enough”.   She taught me to not diminish my feelings and act like it wasn’t a big deal what happened to me as a child.   We work so hard sometimes to be tough and literally build a wall around us.   That wall serves a purpose.   To protect us.   The only problem is as you get older you realize the wall that helped to protect you actually hurts you and alienates you from the world.   You create a sort of prison that prevents you from getting out or letting anyone in.   This book is a must read.


For more than ten years, Fearless Living has been inspiring readers to take back their lives and “live the life their soul intended.”

As a survivor of personal trauma, Rhonda Britten understands the challenge of mastering fears-whether it’s a fear of rejection, looking stupid, not getting the job, or not being good enough.

With her acclaimed Fearless Living program, however, she has helped hundreds of thousands of people get unstuck, gain clarity of purpose, and take life-changing risks.

Featuring inspiring true stories and practical Fearbuster exercises, Fearless Living exposes the roots of our fears and gives us the tools to move beyond them. The result is a blueprint for success, happiness, and peace of mind.”
