Many changes rear their ugly heads in today’s chaotic environment and those changes often lead to fear. Of course, fear can be paralyzing, often leading to inaction. When facing a change, most people invariably feel insecure, lost and overwhelmed. Whatever your fear—making decisions, changing careers, health care decisions, leaving a relationship—you must learn to push through to a resolution or suffer the consequences of inaction.
In several of our seminar and keynote presentations, we refer to the classic bestseller by Dr. Susan Jeffers: Feel the Fear … and Do It Anyway. The title tells all. Susan shares a not-so-obvious truth that it’s okay to feel fear when facing change. Many people feel they’re the only ones who experience fear. The key, of course, is that you “Do It Anyway!”
In her bestseller, Dr. Jeffers inspires readers with dynamic techniques and profound concepts that have helped countless people grab hold of their fears and move forward with their lives.
