A true inspiration!

Thank you Weldon for sharing your inspiring life story. You certainly put things into perspective - what a life transformation. Thank you for sharing so much detail about your past, I was immediately engaged. I am happy for you and all you have accomplished. Thank you for being the catalyst helping me get things back on track. This book is right up there with "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. It is that good!

Amazing, addicting, and cheesy

the 80s music make it slightly comical, but the Upside of Fear is a gut wrenching soul searching tale of Weldon Long explaining where he came from. this story being a breath of fresh air from so many authors who just talk about success but not the struggle to get there and who they were prior. great story and sometimes couldn't stop listening (would listen all the time even in bed).

Amazing

Weldon’s book was truly inspirational and needed. I have read many books from people such as Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Napoleon Hill and countless others…Weldon’s book ranks at the top of the list. The reason being is he doesn’t spend anytime talking in the clouds or being esoteric, he gives you every detail and account of his life story - the good, the bad and the ugly - and what he was experiencing along the way. He then gives you the step by step process of how he changed his thoughts, the tools he used and the times he implemented his new found knowledge.

It really is a road map for anyone who wants to accomplish anything!

Thank you Wally!

A rare motivating story

The story is so real and touching that only someone has been there and done it can get such a deep understanding of life and how to live it to the fullest.

One of the best audio books out there

Great listen and very uplifting story. Close to my heart as a Colorado native and a person who loves to live on the upside of fear.
