I've often been asked to explain why we have so little trust in ourselves. I don't really know the answer to that. I know that some fear is instinctual and healthy and keeps us alert to trouble. The rest...the part that holds us back from personal growth...is inappropriate and destructive and perhaps can be blamed on our conditioning.
In all my years, I have never heard a mother call out to her child as he or she goes off to school, 'Take some risks today, Darling...' She is more likely to convey to her child, 'Be careful, Darling.' This 'be careful' carries with it a double message: 'The world is really dangerous out there...AND...you won't be able to handle it.'
Apart from such seemingly obvious connections, it is possible the cause of our fear lies elsewhere. But does it really matter from where our self-doubts come? I believe not. It is not my approach to analyze the whys and wherefores of troublesome areas of the mind. It is often impossible to figure out what the actual causes of negative patterns are, and even if we did know, the knowing doesn't necessarily change them. I believe that if something is troubling you, simply start from where you are and take the action necessary to change it.
In this case, you know that you don't like the fact that lack of trust in yourself is stopping you from getting what you want out of life. Knowing this creates a very clear, even laser-like, focus on what needs to be changed. You don't have to scatter your energy wondering why. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you begin now to develop your trust in yourself, until you reach the point where you will be able to say:

This won't be a popular review because it will go against the flood of praises. Actually, I wanted to like this book. I came to it with very high hopes only to be greatly disappointed and even somewhat irritated. Despite its enormous popularity, I have difficulty recommending this book because it buries one of its main agendas in the later chapters, and that agenda undercuts the value of the whole.
I intend no negative comments against the author, and certainly, the 12 chapters have useful information. I especially liked the Pain to Power chart concept in chapter 3, and there are other useful things as well, especially in the first 7 or 8 chapters.
However, starting on page 154 (chapter 9) the book begins a gradual descent into a hazy cave of vagueness in which metaphysics, the universe, fate, life, intuition, the Laws of Universal Energy, and other such things emerge as if living entities. Actually, a good summary of the book's solution to fear is this: "With the Law of Universal Energy on your side, you can learn to trust not only the universe, but yourself." (p. 196) Further, the author states outright a goal to "whet your appetite, so you will be eager to learn more. I urge you to look at the laws of the universe as postulated by metaphysicians." Instead of hiding this on p. 204, this statement should have been on p 1.
If you're into all the metaphysical stuff, you'll probably love this book. If you're not, you might have trouble with it, like I did. When I started the book, I was eager to learn. By the end, reading statements like the following, I was eager to get to another book:
"The way I use the word [spiritual] will be acceptable to you whether you are religious or an atheist" (p 191).
Just keep repeating the title of this book to yourself because that pretty much summarizes all 219 pages. Feel or see your fears and just say "what the hell" and do it anyway.
If it only were that simple. We all have fears but most of us don't understand why we have those fears and we need to understand the underlying reasons behind them so we can then "feel the fear and do it anyway." You will get none of that advice here.
Beyond that, this book becomes weird and painful to read starting at chapter nine when it turns to the metaphysical and it uses words like the "universe" and "higher self." I didn't get what was going on in chapters nine till the end and then it ended abruptly.
The beginning chapters didn't have any metaphysical stuff but they were just common sense and did not offer any good information regarding fear. I mean the author states stuff like: "...The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it." "...get out of your comfort zone." and "...be a Pollyanna." If it were that easy then I wouldn't waste the time or money on this book. Obviously it is not that easy and the way to get around your fears is to understand them so you can try to eliminate them. I did not understand how to get around my fears after reading this book and I got nothing but common sense advice and a bunch of platitudes.
On a positive note, the author doesn't talk about medications or anything like that. Honestly I would never buy a book that recommends medication to get over fear or depression. I believe that, as humans, we are strong enough and have all the power within ourselves to beat our fears and worries without the use of prescription drugs.
