Stop Fear From Stopping You

The Art and Science of Becoming Fear-Wise (Self help, Mood Disorders, Anxieties and Phobias)

By Helen Odessky

Harness Your Fear

“Join the thousands of others her words have helped and decide to take control. Start today. Start now.” ―Dr. John Duffy, author of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety 

Dr. Helen Odessky describes what she has learned in fifteen years of helping people face their fears.  Learn to face your fears and attain greater opportunities in your relationships, career, and life.

Value good fear. Sometimes fear can be helpful. A few years ago, Dr. Helen Odessky, licensed clinical psychologist, anxiety expert, speaker, and author of the best-selling motivational book Stop Anxiety from Stopping You, found herself part of a minor fender-bender on a major interstate. Looking back at her daughter, she feared that if another car hit them, her daughter's life would be in danger. A few minutes after retreating to another car in a safer location, an 18-wheeler barreled into her car and demolished it. Her fear saved both her daughter's life and her own.

Fight bad fear. Stop Fear from Stopping You is about a different type of fear―the fear that is so prevalent that it often lies dormant―destroying dreams, career paths and relationships. Bad fear creates stories that cushion us from potential pain and failure―at the cost of our self-esteem, success, and personal happiness.

Become fear-wise. Because fear is complex, we cannot afford to merely be fearless. Just "letting go" is not the answer. The real solution lies in learning to become fear-wise. In this inspirational book, Dr. Helen shows you how to harness the wisdom behind your fears and break through the barriers that block your success.

  • Identify the fears that stand between you and your goals
  • Develop tools to overcome your fears
  • Develop a value-based plan to pursue your goals
  • Change your relationship with fear and learn to become fear-wise

If self-help books for women and men like Feeling Good: The New Mood TherapyDaring Greatly, or Fearless inspired you, then Stop Fear from Stopping You is a must-read.
