Fear is designed to paralyse us, to keep us safe from the risk of rejection and failure. But change and growth are often on the other side of such risk, how are we to get there if fear is so controlling!
The loudest guest, explored in this fascinating new book, is fear. Author and psychologist, Dr Amy Silver, believes that if you reduce the control that fear has on you, you take back control of your life. Fear is merely a guest in your mind, albeit a noisy one, and you are the host.
This book is for you if you:
are prone to worrying, being hesitant or overly concerned with something
desire to do something new but worry you feel you couldn't, shouldn't or that you would fail
talk yourself down either out loud or in your head
feel that there must be more to do or feel, but you seem to get in your way from really 'letting go' into your life
are too "in your head", full of doubt, regret or indecision about what the 'right' thing to do is
spend too much time thinking about what people think of you
want to explore how much fear is controlling your choices in life.
would like to say more about what you are feeling to create deeper trust or connection
In-this-easy-to-read, practical book you will learn the six essential steps to reduce the power of your fear voice and create a more powerful you.
"Fear is a mysterious and dark location for me. This book layouts a map to navigate the terrain and it creates a language to speak to the locals without energy-sapping and unpredictable wrong turns. Reading Dr Silver's book moved me from confused tourist to a fluent traveller."
"The idea that fear is an honoured guest and that we are the host of our own party is profoundly useful. Leading above the line is about having the courage to make peace with all our internal voices and create from a place of power."
