I have recently re-read the above book. I was hoping it would deal with phobias like spiders, but it has reminded me it is more about fears that prevent you living life to the full. It is about 20 years since I read it and I had forgotten most of it, but it is surprising the impact it must have had, as it may have helped me bring about changes in my life. As you will see later. Perhaps I should look at NLP to rid me of my dread of spiders!
However what it does cover is finding out what you are fearful about, why and how to eliminate them. Susan Jeffers phD writes of her journey to rid herself of her own limiting fears. Having developed various systems for herself she decided to teach these methods to others. Her methods are to help you gain confidence in all areas of your life.
There is a chapter on moving from pain to power where changing your vocabulary from negative to positive will give you power over various states of mind. By saying, for example “I could”, rather than I should, or “next time”, instead of, “if only I had… “, you change your thinking.
There are many exercises within the pages that can take you from a state of fearfulness to power. These will help you feel “you can handle anything”.
The book helps you take charge of your life and make decisions. It teaches there are no wrong decisions only different results, which can be changed by future decisions. She also recommends a life of balance, making time for all areas of your life, all your needs, to give you peace and satisfaction.
It is an easy to read little book, full of helpful ideas to enrich your future, and although this could mean your changes will necessitate making new friends. As you grow and change, existing friends may drop away. Or maybe you will even change career paths, but you will find out what is really important to you, and have the courage to follow through.
Maybe in the past you have toyed with the idea of setting up your own business, but have resisted the idea through fear of the unknown. The book and the exercises could make you more adventurous, more confident.
The first time I read the book I had no idea of changing careers but it may have subconsciously influenced me as now I have set up an affiliate marketing business, which has enabled me to work anywhere with my laptop. We now winter in the sun in Spain.
If you would like to work anywhere and make new choices it could help you change your life too! If you are interested to find out more about affiliate marketing, which is the simplest starting point online, there are many books on the subject and YouTube videos.
Affiliate marketing with the guidance of a coach, means products are provided, and up-to-date training. This means that you are in a position to start earning as you are learning the techniques and do not have source your own products, test them for best sellers or learn all about marketing before you start earning.
Begin part-time and see if online marketing is for you. I love the time and location freedom of the lifestyle it gives me, maybe you will too!
