I read this because I have to do a talk on coping with uncertainty. It contains a mixture of cognitive strategies (such as focusing on all of the rough things one has coped with successfully in the past) and existential (such as coming to terms with the fact that we really can't control the future). The material covered is basically sound, and includes a number of exercises to work on. I just wish it wasn't quite so pop-psychology esque...just a little too rah rah you can do it for my taste, and...more
Too simplistic and almost depressing for my tastes. "give up hoping and dreaming and you won't be disapointed,instead be in a state of wonder " As- I wonder what will happen ? .... what great achievements have we all experienced because we hope, dream and envision ? Yes, there is something wonderfulful about wonder (pun intended ) and I undertand taking action and letting go of the outcome.What other choice do we really have ?, as challenging as that can be.

Susan Jeffers gives a good account of the reasons it is important for all of us to stop trying to control everything about our lives; instead things would flow much more easily if we could allow uncertainty to be a regular companion. In truth it already is, but we try to tell ourselves that we are the masters of our destinys. In small ways we may be, but overall, life really is uncertain, and when we can relax in that knowledge, things do go much better.
I have just finished reading Embracing Uncertainty by Dr. Susan Jeffers. I generally do not want to read books over again but this is one I will keep and plan to read over and over. There are so many tools in this book to help with the everyday stresses that life has to offer and they all make so much sense. I am going to loan this book to my Mother and then read it once I get it back. I can't recommend this highly enough!

I read this one when I was going thru what I felt was intense fear of the unknown. Susan Jeffers did not let me down and I learned from this book so much more then the pen can express to paper!

Thank You Susan Jeffers!

“The sense of "having a goal in your life "will put you in the side of "giving" instead of "getting" ...... most of people focus "more" on what they want from their lives and that could lead to thinking in a (victim-of-life) way ... when you start to play the role of a person who's having a meaning and a goal for his/her life, you will get back the self-esteem you deserve.” 2 likes
