This remarkable book speaks to our current stressful, fear-based mode of existing by offering simple, common-sense solutions that lead toward sanity and joy. And the wonderful thing is that these methods are available to us all in present-moment time. Wyatt Webb sticks to his belief that the cause of our most difficult struggles in this life are two things we’re not born with: fear and self-doubt. Since these two conditions are learned, there is definitely hope for overcoming them via the process of unlearning and relearning, which is at our intellectual, emotional, and spiritual fingertips.
We’re able to move from the perception of being stuck by availing ourselves of the simple yet profound tools offered in this book. For one-tenth the cost of a therapy session, you can access the map to freedom. What have you got to lose?
I really enjoyed Wyatt Webb's first book, and this one was even better.
He goes through the "Five steps for overcoming fear and self-doubt" and he does it in a very practical, open, honest way. He tells stories of clients he has worked with at Miraval Resort... many of which are amazing and simple at the same time.
Most of the book is about him challenging his fear of heights. The emotions and reactions that come up within him when he decides to confront that fear. He is just honest and genuine.
I have used the five steps several times everyday. With little fears and big ones.
Perhaps a distant variant of Dale Carnegie's "Stop Worrying and Start Living". Similar principles accept that the model has been elaborated a bit. Unlike Dale Carnegie's classic book which provides a mental model for overcoming your fears without linking everything to childhood traumas, this book links everything to previous experiences and for that I downgraded to 3 stars.
