Now more than ever, it seems, our lives and the lives of our loved ones are at risk. Our normal response is to retreat. Indeed, we may linger in secure but mindnumbing careers, safe but unfulfilling relationships, just to avoid the terror of the unknown. But what if fear were not a negative force, but a positive one? What if fear could be a source of energy and strength, an invitation to plunge forward, and not a signal to retreat? This idea is the centerpiece of You Have the Power. It is not fear itself that can shut us down; it is our ideas about fear. The authors offer the radical notion that fear can actually be a precious resource we can use to create the lives we want and the world we want. Sharing their own intimate journeys with fear, as well as the experiences of others, Lappe and Perkins explore seven old, paralyzing ideas about fear and suggest that we can replace them with seven new, liberating notions. You Have the Power helps us unleash our power to walk into the unknown and create more fulfilling, authentic lives. Fear means go, not stop. Book jacket.
