Hardcore Self-Help by Robert Duff
Yes, that’s what author Robert Duff teaches.
This unique self-help book is nothing like you’d expect. There’s a lot of humor and swearing right at the beginning. The words are so plain and easily understandable that they’ll work on a high school student who has no clue about basic algebra.
Duff’s approach is like that of a best friend who’s had enough of the ramblings of their stupid pal. Yes, his advice is harsh but surprisingly helpful. By doing so, Duff aims to help relieve you of your anxiety.
Unfortunately, the word “sweet” is not in his vocabulary, as you’ll soon find out.
With this book, you don’t have to break codes just to learn how to deal with your anxiety.
The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks
You’re supposed to live a life of excellence—not mediocrity—in this universe. More often than not, good things don’t happen simply because of the fears holding you back.
They may even be fake, says New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks.
The pen behind the book Five Wishes, Hendricks believes that people limit their lives simply because they think they are limited.
In this book, you’ll learn more about the barriers that stop you from doing what you’re supposed to. That way, you get to do what you need to do and march on with your life!
Calm by Michael Acton Smith
The book title itself is suggestive of what it contains: tips and tricks on how to keep calm in this fast-paced world.
Here, Smith focuses on mindfulness meditation, a proven effective technique in reducing stress and anxiety. And, contrary to popular belief, it’ll not take much of your day.
In Calm, Smith offers simple meditation practices you and your friends can practice easily.
For example, he provides a guide on doing a 10-minute meditation, which you can accomplish as you commute to or back from work.
Fearless Living by Rhonda Britten
The name speaks for itself. In her first seminal work, life coach Rhonda Britten talks about mastering the emotional fears that keep you in the same old rut.
Unlike most authors, Rhonda draws her advice from her personal experience. She’s a survivor of trauma herself, and her tips are those that she has used herself.
With the help of her book, you can finally:
- Say goodbye to indecision
- Gain a clearer purpose in life
- Take the necessary risks
Apart from Fearless Living, Rhonda’s Fearless Loving and Change your Life in 30 Days are must-reads as well.
Fearless Series by Francine Pascal
If you’re looking for a fast-paced series, then this adventure featuring Gaia Moore is perfect for you.
Created by Sweet Valley High Series author, the books center on the main character Gaia, a seventeen-year-old girl who doesn’t feel fear.
And it’s not because she’s strong-willed or she’s a black belt in martial arts—it’s because the seemingly typical teenager lacks a fear gene.
The series sees the protagonist dealing with Ed Fargo, a former paraplegic and friend in New York, and Sam Moon, her first love interest.
There’s also the intriguing storyline of Gaia’s mother, Katia, who becomes embroiled with Tom Moore (Gaia’s father) and his twin, her Uncle Oliver.
It might not be a self-help book, but the Fearless series can give you an insight into what it’s like to live a life without fear.
Thank you for reading.
