Summary

How To Live In The Present.

Let Go Of Fear, Anxiety and Regret, And Live A Happier, Calmer Life.

Updated 2020 Edition.

Living in the present means letting go of the things that are out of your control. It means being able to maintain perspective when times are hard. It means giving yourself the permission to enjoy the things you have in the here and now; thus providing yourself with a calmer, more confident inner self.

No useless medical jargon, no endless exercises, just fast proven techniques which are practical and easy to implement into your life from chapter one.

Some of the topics covered in this book include:

  • How to deal with anxiety
  • Letting go of fear
  • Gaining more confidence
  • How to make goals and stick to them
  • Conquering worry with ease
  • Becoming a more assertive person
  • Conquering regret and embarrassment
  • Practical steps you can take immediately
  • Steps to quickly change things for the better
  • And so much more!

Now I get it.

I will be honest - I got this book, listened to ten mins and gave up. Revisited it again this week and it just takes a little patience to get into it, but once you do you will discover an absolute treasure trove of information.

Calm.

I needed help with a general feeling of anxiety, feeling I wasn't getting enough done, feeling stressed and disorganised, This book gave me the tools to relocate the areas of my mind which is helping quite a bit but its a work in progress.

This was the one.

Its been a while since I got this but just gave it the second list. Being blunt I liked it the first time but weans blown away but listening to it all again it just sort of *clicked* with me and realised how powerful the material is.

Very different

Very different from what I expected here but in the best possible way. Had planned to only listen to the first bit and then a little a day but ended up diving in and completing it in two days, couldn't get enough!

A random one but great

A random book for me, thought I would take a chance - very very surprised by just how good this was, surprised more people are not talking about it. Listened to it on my commute to and from work all last week and just helped me feel better about the day and deal with all issues that came up in a more calm, adult, CONTROLLED way.

Full marks.

Happy to give this book full marks for the simple reason that it is, every day, helping me so much in life, to let go of a lot of anxieties and nonsense in my head and live a happier and calmer life.

Took a chance...very glad I did!

Took a bit of a chance on this one! Had seen some good reviews on blogs but had not read into it too much - I am VERY glad I took the chance. This is an very helpful, accessible and easy-to-follow guide to letting go of things and becoming a happier calmer and more in control person. It really helped me with issues I had been having with anxiety, self esteem, worry and confidence.

Fantastic. Thank you to the author :-)

Actually very good.

3 weeks after finishing this I felt compelled to leave a review as I am seeing good results from this in different areas of life. Think I will actually give it a second listen now.
