Mastering Fear: Harnessing Emotion to Achieve Excellence in Work, Health and Relationships by Robert Maurer, Michelle Gifford

Achieving and sustaining success is difficult. Why do some people struggle to get started or stay the course? Why do others seem to sabotage their hard-earned victories? What makes some people stumble and fall, when they seem to possess the requisite skills to soar? Most importantly, what can be done to change these patterns and their outcomes?

Based on years of research, Mastering Fear answers these questions and many more with its surprising perspective on stress, fear, and the single most important skill necessary to achieve maximum results.

Studies worldwide have tracked the lives of hundreds of individuals over decades in search of the foundations of excellence. Dr. Robert Maurer has culled and refined this data, dispelling current myths and revealing practical strategies to maximize passion and performance in any individual, team, or organization.

In Mastering Fear, you will discover that:

  • Stress can't be cured, because stress as we know it does not exist.
  • Fear plays a crucial role in undermining--or driving--all success.
  • There is one skill you absolutely must see in others before you can trust them.
  • You may already possess the single most critical skill for achieving and sustaining success in all key areas of life!
