Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

There's no denying Britten's earnestness, evinced in the powerful example of her personal transformation, years after a singularly horrific experience: at age 14, she watched her father kill her mother, then himself. By her account, Britten drowned her grief in self-defeating behavior for 20 years until she decided to make herself whole by exploring how others overcame legacies of shame and fear. Her observations led her to create the Fearless Living program, in which she works as a life and career coach. Britten defines fear generally as a self-esteem problem the conviction that one is "not good enough" that results in a range of unpleasant or harmful behavior from addictions to people pleasing to negativity. Tackling the problem in a simplistic way not grounded in a psychological context, she offers a collection of well-meaning, possibly beneficial exercises for gaining assertiveness, taking positive action, determining what triggers fear, etc. While many strategies seem worthwhile (building strong support networks, fostering self-acceptance, avoiding toxic people), the work feels too gimmicky to be persuasive as a cohesive program. Though the writing is aimed at a mass audience, unfortunately, Britten profiles subjects whose stories are less compelling than her own. (Apr.) Forecast: Britten's feel-good advice pales in comparison to Don Greene's highly disciplined Fight Your Fear and Win (see review, p. 81), which analyzes the components of successful behavior and appeals more directly to those who want to improve performance. Britten's sales may suffer accordingly. Readers interested in getting in touch with their essential nature , meanwhile, will find more insight in the intelligently written Finding Your Own North Star (Forecasts, Feb. 5).

My friend encouraged me to attend Rhonda Britten's presentation and to try her book. At first, I thought it as another self-help book crowding the book shelf. In the end, the book is so effective that I am grateful for it.
In the past few months of reading and pracitising the exercises as well as the suggestions and ideas, I am astounded and humbled at the momentous transformation within me. My friends and associates are awestruck at the immense changes and feel inspired to do likewise. I feel more love for myself and for others.
The book also shows me different ways of choosing and arranging the words and sentences that are neutral, empowering, supporting, and so forth. That makes so much difference in how I relate to the people and deal with the circumstances. The way I communicate have powerful effect on people.
Ms Britten does not write this book to profit. She does it from her personal experience and with geninue heart. Many thanks for helping me having a profound changes for the greater good!

Format: Paperback
In a crowded field of self-help books, this one stands out above all else. It is written from the soul from a woman who has experienced real pain. Yet, unlike some other testimonial type books, it is filled with concrete advice and a definite action plan. It touches the soul, heart, and head. After applying her teachings for a month or so, I felt a lightness to my life that I can't even explain. I've read other self-help books and they all seemed to be about the person I should be and not the person I am. Rhonda helps you accept who you really are-- when you have that acceptance, you feel a sense of adventure and courage and you move toward your goals and dreams. Six months after completing this book, I am living less in my head, imagining what I might achieve, and actually feeling the joy of accomplishment. My business has picked up a lot, I've lost 10 pounds in a healthy way, and my family life is great. Moreover, I'm able to enjoy my life and not feel guilty when I indulge. Ii feel centered and peaceful and it is showing on the outside, with my accomplishments and attitude, and on the inside, with my feelings of peace. Buy it! Rhonda, I hope you read these reviews. You've taken the pain from your own life and turned it into a gift. God bless you and give you all the wonderful things you deserve!

Finally, a book that speaks the bare-naked truth in a manner that is not sugarcoated in the usual literary rhetoric.
This book exposes the bondage of fear that most of us live through on a daily basis, sometimes without conscious awareness of its existence. It is chock full of information and exercises that force you to really look at your limiting habits and deal with them. When you're through with this book you will learn how to identify and prevent even the very thoughts that give birth to fear, as well as the rising tide of fearful living you may have practiced in the past.
Rhonda Britten is a woman who walks her talk. Her methodology is exact, and her sources come from her own life experience, as well as her work as one of the premier life coaches in practice today. I personally felt a jolt of conviction and exhilaration as I read chapter after chapter into the wee hours of the morning. I then picked up the book again the next day and took two weeks to work through all the exercises. This was truly an amazing experience. The most riveting chapter for me? The Wheel of Fear...I never realized how I innocently allow fear to creep into my life, and how my own solutions to my problems were actually creating more problems! It's like I've spent years unconsciously treating the symptom and not the cure. This one chapter alone was worth the price of the book.
This is one not to be missed.
5 Stars +. Rhonda is a rare find indeed.

The great thing about this book is that the author has taken concepts and ideas from counseling and psychotherapy and the human potential movement, found the best of them and presents them in a form anyone can understand and use.
Her own struggles provide the background to see just how successful you can be with her ideas. After seeing her mother murdered and her father commit suicide, she worked long and hard, first at denying her own self-worth and then finding it aqain.
I know whereof I speak. Not only am I a psychotherapist, I am also Rhonda's cousin. While this obviously makes me somewhat biased in this review, I can say that I've seen the growth and the power that this woman has in her life, she's onto something and wants to share it with the world. Find a copy of the book, use the ideas in it (even just one or two) and see how things can change. I know the principles are founded in good psychology, I also know personally how transforming they are, seeing them play out in the life of my cousin. Her life is going places and she invites all her readers to come with her!

...The moment I started reading it, I began to see my life differently. I was able to acknowledge that I do have fears that are holding me back and recognize what they are. The book reads easily and clearly and is very encouraging through the chapters and exercises.
If you have an open mind and can be honest with yourself, your life will begin to change AS SOON as you begin reading the book. The book has touched every area of my life, improving my self-confidence and self-motivation and sending me well on my way to becoming completely fearless. The results are amazing; you'll be astonished at finding WHO you really are and what potential you've kept hidden behind your own fears. I've already bought a second copy as a gift to my strongest fear-busting buddy. His own life is already improving and he's passing the news onto other friends.
I recommend this book for everyone believing in self improvement and evolvement or recognizing that there's room for improvement in their live (that's ALL of us). There is no book more important to read in your life. Good luck on your fearless journey!
