We experience fear every day of our lives, be it through worry or concern over the smallest thing to the biggest. People are paralysed by fear to the point of not only becoming static within their lives, but in some case even regressing to what they feel are 'safety zones' - that of no longer living but barely existing hour to hour, day to day. People no longer taking risks, no longer trying, no longer even caring. Feel the Fear was a book I bought many years ago whilst a student on a Counselling course - I remember scanning it quickly. However, after years of recommending it to almost everyone I came across, I thought, let me really read it. This was last year, 2008. I am glad I did, as Dr Jeffers candidly once again invited me to travel with her through the pages of the book on her journey through sometimes funny, sometimes quirky but mostly powerful, real life issues. She shows how after years of living a mediocre life, yet knowing there WAS more out there, she embarked on taking full an complete contol of her life and challenging, sometimes gentle, sometimes directly, all the significant people in her life. She shows how she slowly regained control of her life and began to reduce her anxiety and fear - tackling those periods of being frozen by fear, to feeling every last bit of it and doing what her heart called her to do! Dr Jeffers went from being a housewife taken pretty much for granted by her family, to the DR Jeffers who has sold millions of copies of her book that has helped so very many people. It is people like her who through their courage and strength, help us to become all that we are capable of becoming. This is an excellent book, easily written and accessible to academics and non academics alike. There is a life out there, grab it with both hands and LIVE. Feel the Fear, AND DO. IT. ANYWAY. God Bless.
