From one of the worldâ€™s top performance psychologistsâ€”a proven framework for overcoming the primary obstacle to success: fear
In more than 20 years helping leaders and athletes reach their true potential, renowned sports psychologist and culture coach Dr. Pippa Grange has found that even the most successful people experience fears of inadequacy. What sets them apart is their ability to pinpoint their fears and â€śturn down the volume.â€ť
In Fear Less, Grange walks you through the process of identifying and facing the fears that manifest in perfectionism, jealousy, self-criticism, and harsh judgment, and replacing those fears with acceptance, purpose, passion, or laughterâ€•to name just a few. And she provides effective fear-management techniques for facing moments of critical pressure, including:
Processing â€“ through conscious tactics that bring the mind back to where you want it: the job at hand Distraction â€“ deliberately focusing on other tasks when thereâ€™s nothing active to be done about what you actually fear Rationalization â€“ drawing on the actual facts and evidence to talk yourself through the situation Our hidden fears are what make us feel our lives arenâ€™t enough, that prompt us to spend our time worrying about competition, status, and control. Fear is what turns life into a battle, telling us we need to hide our real selves and that weâ€™re not good enough.
Fear Less gives you the tools you need to practice your responses to fear in the same way elite athletes train for and perform at a big gameâ€•with equally dramatic results. Youâ€™ll gain the knowledge and insight you need to change your perspective and move beyond fear to a place of joy, fulfillment, and meaning.
