If you are ready to make a commitment to yourself and your future…  If you have read the books, tried the exercises, and are now ready to do the work…  If you are finally ready to take control of your life…  If you want to stop letting fear paralyze you from doing, being, and growing… If you want to once and for all – acknowledge your fears, accept the reality of fear itself, and take action to FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY®, this opportunity is for YOU!


What Are You Afraid Of And Why?  We will dig deeper into the many fears we experience as we look at the levels, types, and causes of fear.   Susan Jeffers says, “All you have to do to diminish your fear is to develop more trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your way.”  


The Five Truths About Fear.  Are you waiting for the fear to go away?  Learning and understanding the five truths about fear will give you the confidence to stretch and push through your fears.


Transition From Pain To Power.  Some hold fear from a position of pain and they stay stuck.  Some hold fear from a position of power and they “do it anyway.”  When you learn the secret to moving yourself from pain to power, the fact that you have the fear then becomes irrelevant.


Taking Responsibility For Your Life.  There is really only one person in this world who can make you happy and that’s yourself.  Are you a “victim” or are you taking responsibility for your life?  Once you learn the concepts to course correct from the victim mentality, you will better understand the dynamics of handling fear.


What Role Does Positive Thinking Play?  Positive thinking is one of the most difficult of all concepts for many to grasp.  Why?  Because you can’t explain the “how” or “why” it works.  We will demonstrate the power of thought and words.


Weigh In On Your Circle Of Influence.  Your support system plays a vital role in the way you handle fear.  As you grow, your relationships might change.  It is amazingly empowering to have the support of a strong, motivated, and inspirational group of people in your circle.


Making No-Lose Decisions.  Susan Jeffers says, “Which path in life will make you grow?  That is the path to take.”  One of the biggest fears that keeps us from moving ahead with our lives is our difficulty in making decisions.  Learn the steps to take before making a decision and after the decision is made.


How Whole Is Your “Whole Life”?  Many of us short-circuit our lives by choosing the path that is the most comfortable.  You will examine your grid of life and ask yourself, “What would I be doing if I were really important in all areas of my life?”


Nod Your Head And Say “Yes”.  Experiment with the power of saying “yes” even when anticipating the worst.  Learn how this antidote will help you deal with day-to-day challenges, disappointments, rejections, things you can’t control, and even your deepest, darkest fears.

Where is the event being held?

Why is space limited for this event?

The number of attendees is kept to a minimum to ensure that each participant receives a unique experience and leaves feeling like Rose did.  Rose drove from Kentucky to Washington, D.C. to attend a Feel the Fear VIP Day and she says, “I had to go.  It was a beautiful experience.  If I had missed out on that, I would have missed out on a big part of my life.  I’m so grateful that I went.  It helped me so much.”  Time will be allocated for each participant to spend one-on-one time with the presenter to review their “Fear-Less” Power Plan.  This alone is valued at more than the registration cost.

How Feel the Fear Is Changing Rose's Life

"Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway awakened a part of me that was dead for many years. I was home bound at the time I purchased the book in desperation. I had so many dreams and goals, but was too fearful to pursue them. I suffered from panic attacks and anxiety. It changed me so much, I purchased 10 copies for other friends.  Since then, I did a Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway mentoring program, which inspired me to take more action in my life.  I sold my belongings, left my comfort zone, and started a new life in Florida in June.  Even though there were many roadblocks and detours along the way, I pushed past my fears with affirmations, positive reinforcement, and the concepts in Susan’s book.  I am currently living on a beach, living the life I've always dreamed of, and writing a book of my journey that I plan to have published by the end of September.  This truly changed my life, and I can say I’m ALIVE.  I felt the fear and did it anyway!" ~~Rose Smith, Florida
