I have read a lot of self-help books over the years. Most of them contain some grain of useful advice but that is often buried, hence easily missed, amongst cliches and hyperbole. A few are really good and declare their basic message loud and clear. Susan Jeffers’ best-seller falls into this latter category, with its title becoming a well-known phrase in popular culture: Feel the fear and do it anyway. Today I took Jeffers’ advice. Nothing bad happened. Quite the contrary, in fact. Even if things don’t quite come to fruition as I hope, then it won’t really matter. It won’t be a disaster. I feel proud of myself. I feel brave, which is quite an unusual emotion to experience in everyday life. Whatever the results, I felt the fear and did it anyway. Thank you, Susan Jeffers.
