Summary

This program is read by the author. 

From the powerhouse Mind Body Green calls "the Brené Brown of Wonder" comes a self-help audiobook that will reframe the way we look at ourselves and the world and help us reach our full potential.

"Amber Rae's very personal journey of moving from a constructed identity of self limiting beliefs to her true self - in the domain of creativity, wonder, joy and higher consciousness - offers inspiring insights and lessons for anyone wanting to unfold their infinite potential." (Deepak Chopra)

"Amber Rae is the Elizabeth Gilbert of her generation." (Stacy London, New York Times best-selling author of The Truth About Style)

Wonder is what we’re born with. Worry is what we learn. Now is the time to return to wonder.

Why do we hold back from pursuing what matters most? Why do we listen to the voice inside our head that tells us we're not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough? How can we move beyond the fear and doubt that prevents us from creating a life that reflects who we truly are? 

Choose Wonder over Worry is your official invitation to face your fears, navigate your discomfort, and rewrite the "worry myths” in your mind that keep you from being your best and truest self. Journey with inspirational speaker and artist Amber Rae as she connects you with your voice of worry and wonder, teaches you to listen to your emotions rather than silence them, and encourages you to seize your dreams. Through a thoughtful blend of vulnerability, soulfulness, and science, Amber Rae guides you in expressing the fullness of who you are and the gifts you’re here to give. You don’t have to be held back by worry when wonder awaits you every moment of every day.

Worry or wonder: Which will you choose?

not for me

I'm sure that this book will be loved by someone. Someone will be inspired. Someone will say, "yes! This is what I needed to hear!" but that someone is not me.

Everything in this book that was interesting to me was something I've heard before. I've read a lot of Seth Godin's books, and (not that he invented the genre, but still) a lot of this is rehashing ideas that he has covered very well.

The relationship/love advice felt really out of place to me. (I've been in a healthy marriage for 13 years. Someone else might better appreciate it.)

The foul language felt unprofessional. She sounded like a middle-school kid showing off by saying bad words. (Someone else might love her casual style.

I won't listen to this again. I recommend Godin's Poke the Box for a better treatment of a lot of the same concepts (like fear and failure). For material specific to creating fine art, I highly recommend Art & Fear instead.

This book will make your life easier

I finished Amber Rae's 4 hour and ten minute audio book in one day. It was an immersive seminar about how to create that pivotal pause between our thoughts and our action. The thing we've learned from thought leaders like Mike Dooley, Shaman Durek, Louise Hay, Iyanla Vanzant, and Wayne Dyer is that our thoughts create our reality. Amber Rae gives dozens of pieces of practical application shifting yourself into a positive mindset from a spin-out. Without spiritually bypassing, she knows how to create a new and easier reality by embracing what each emotion we don't like can teach us. Feeling jealousy, imposter syndrome, or shame (to name a few) are yucky but Amber tells us how to become BFF with your shame in order to let it disappear. At a $25 cover price the peace of mind afforded by this book is worth 100 times that value. You deserve to feel good.

From worry to wonder.

When I started the book, I thought I wouldn't finish it. The first chapters, seemed interesting, but not for me. However, as I continued listening, I realized I identified with a lot of what the author what's expressing and ended up really enjoying the content. This book encourages you to dig in and find the truth about yourself, if you allow it to happen. The great variety of stories makes you remember at least one of yours and to apply the principles in real life. Who doesn't need a dose of truth, even if just once in a while? This will give that to you.

This book will light a fire in, under, and around you!

This book is a raw and real, yet loving invitation to live our highest selves. I recognized myself in the stories Amber told, and having the thought “oh, wow I’m not alone” which I wasn’t expecting in this sort of book—books like this can often just feel like an expert talking at you and feel unattainable. The relatable quality inspired me to make some important shifts in my world from the first day of listening. This book is one I’ll revisit again and again. Can’t wait to get my hard copy to work within!!

Inspirational

I’ve purchased both the audible and the hard copy of this book and it’s absolutely been life changing for me. Her candor and ability to connect has had me retuning to listen to the book 6 times in the last year and a half. I encourage everyone I know to listen to this book as there is something for everyone to learn or understand. Her ability to go deep and open up the raw truths that people are afraid of in a way that feels like you’re talking to your best friend (Amber Rae if you’re reading this I’m available for new amazing friends!) will continue to keep me coming back for more. Bravo Amber Rae, thank you for not dying with this gift inside.

Read Something Else!

Two words- 1. privilege 2. ego

Read this book if you want to hone in and cultivate your existing privilege (white, cishet, not on public assistance, able to travel the world at a whim, probably drinks kombucha because it 'tastes good' preferred) and master pretending your ego is some sort of sign from God. If you're looking for legitimate story telling and helpful advice on life's challenges, read literally anything else.

Bummer because the author's insta presence had some easy to read and utilize graphics which is how I came across her book. Howeve, this book did her zero favors.

Nothing new or thought provoking.

Are we saturated with this idea? I applaud her pursuit of her dream and wish her the very best with this. And it’s a first book. Seriously a commendable effort. I also can relate to her back story. On the other hand, her vocabulary and overall use of language is cliche’. I feel like she took all the ideas of the veterans in the field and paraphrased it all. Maybe it’s me because I’ve read a lot. Like others have said, maybe it’s meant for young readers—middle school/high school readers. It’d be good for them because the language is “young” and at the level of these younger readers. It’s more like a cheerleader leading the cheers we’ve all heard already. It’s not groundbreaking is what I’m trying to say. Not near the depth the great books have offered. More like a fresh reminder of what we need to remember. Give it a try. You may like it.

So good!

I listened to this at the start of a new year, and it’s exactly what I needed! Amber’s writing and message are clear, inspiring, & actionable. I’m in full anticipation for her next book! Thank you for sharing your gifts, Amber, and showing us how to do the same.
