Fear Less: Face Not-Good-Enough to Replace Your Doubts, Achieve Your Goals, and Unlock Your Success
Dr. Pippa Grange
This book by Dr. Pippa Grange is applicable for anyone who is an adult human. Fear is part of the human experience, and we all deal with our fears in different ways. Fear that is relational and is about how we perceive ourselves and others is a particularly potent type of fear that often blocks us from operating from our true selves.
Fear Less takes us on a deep dive to help us understand what our fears are about and where they come from. The second half of the book then helps us develop new skills for dealing with fear. Fear is a normal part of life, and it will continue to raise its head. The goal is not to get rid of fear but to learn how to make friends with it and address it in ways that are helpful and healthy.
What If…the World is All for You?
As many of you know, we do a LOT of work around mindset in our Braving Hope™ coaching program. The powerlessness, fear and shame that betrayal trauma slings at us can create limiting beliefs and thought patterns that reinforce the powerlessness, fear and shame.
For many partners, this results in getting profoundly stuck, unable to move forward toward healing and empowerment. To heal, it is vital that these beliefs and thought patterns get challenged and re-wired to connect us to our resourcefulness, courage and resilience.
Mo Faul is a colleague of mine. She has written a lovely book that is beautifully illustrated. The book simply asks you questions. But they are questions designed to challenge limiting beliefs and change your perspective. If you find yourself stuck in the negative thought loops and intrusive fears that follow betrayal trauma, this book is a gentle, easy way to help you interrupt that pattern and shift your focus.
