"Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway," Susan Jeffers, PhD

"Does fear keep you from experiencing and accepting life?" 

My father gave me this book, about the same time as he gave me "How to Win Friends and Influence People", but this is the one that spoke to me. This book is the antidote to Learned Helplessness. Once you know that trap exists, read this book to get some practical positive steps to take to shift your behavior around from being stuck in useless painful patterns to being a vital living human being.
I post this because I'm now really recalling how much this book influenced me. Just caught Suze Orman and her Woman and Money show and she had something to say about Courage too. It's a hugely important component of making the changes you want to see in yourself and bringing you closer to a life with the destiny you want.

Good book indeed

The first time I saw that book was in the middle of the afternoon. Next thing I realized, it was getting dark outside. I certainly need to pull my copy off the shelf! If anyone gets the chance, check it out.
