it a bag of pebbles and pearls Some stuff a bit overly simplistic and unrealistic, but some real pearls of wisdom as well It goes beyond the subject of fear and encourages a positive attitude and lifestyle in general As I mentioned in an earlier review, I m not a fan of affirmations, and I believe that the underlying problem should be addressed, not masked And I think her expectations for people to choose to feel positive even under the most dire circumstances e.g bereavement or I d call it a bag of pebbles and pearls Some stuff a bit overly simplistic and unrealistic, but some real

is a bit severe and unforgiving Some people need longer than others to heal emotionally from such traumatic experiences I agree that we must own responsibility for our emotions, but it isn t always as straightforward to choose to feel positive, as the author seems to imply Nevertheless, I did find myself quoting parts of the book to other people whilst reading it, so obviously I found several parts to offer helpful advice The chapter about how to cope with family members and friends who are trying to hold you back during your self growth is very helpful, as well as other topics that she covers I d say that the 2nd half of the book is excellent but the first half, a bit simplistic Like I said, pebbles and pearls, but worth it for the pearls considering that it is such an easy read I was afraid to leave this review, but I did it anyway Kidding.Really, though, this book is probably really important for some people Women, especially Women leaving relationships, I d imagine The first two

a high degree of sensitivity and attunement to a harmonious flow within the universe I just have a hard time reading sentences like that, sober.And actually I never finished the last chapter, largely because the above sentence was in the beginning of it, and I have a lot of other things to read I was afraid to return the book unfinished, but I did it anyway So, I guess it worked A girlfriend in grad school gave me this book, shortly before we parted ways, in fact It was a real eye opener to me that I lived much of my life hovering around the perimeter of the pool rather than jumping in with both feet Most eye opening for me, though, was it was the first time I had been taught that fear was fine embrace it, don t dodge it Then, walk through the fire anyway.I m not saying I turned into

embrace it, don t dodge it Then, walk through the fire anyway.I m not saying I turned into Russell Crowe from Gladiator because of it I m stillWoody Allen from Annie Hall , but the book did fuel me toward some braver choices in life, and I think it s a great read not too clinical, not too esoteric just good guidance through learning to live with the beast that resides in everyone s anxiety closet The book starts off with a pretty decent premise which is entirely summed up in the title.Things will always be scary until you master them, then there will be something new to be afraid of so

etc and the unabashed brute force self brainwashing there are tidbits of insight wrapped thickly in late 80s psychospiritual nonsense Saying Yes to your Universe Ok, I agree you should accept the fact that no matter what happens to you, you always have the next move But it was enough that I just couldn t finish reading last chapter It s about intuition, and after going through Pragmatic Thinking and Learning Refactor Your Wetware and having a solid understanding of my brain s L and R modes there was a great deal of eye rolling In fact, she stopped just shy of making a mini version of The Secret.I don t think this book deserves 1 star, as it does make some good points If you really don t mind self acutalization being put in terms of magic and mystery you can probably take this book at face value But if you value reason I would suggest reading the first 3 chapters in a book store and start building the skill of Doing it Anyway
