Mastering Fear: A Navy SEAL's Guide Reviews
Best book I have read in 2018!
When I saw the cover of the book I knew I had to get my hands on it. The cover is unique and simple. A yellow background with a man representing a warrior type of a person on a horse killing a lion with a spear. Might sound mythological to some or hypothetical to others. It has a significance to the context of the book. I urge you whatever thought comes into your mind after grasping the cover image from both of your eyes, either try to remember it or write it down ...more
Good book, nice take to the concept of fear
"Safety is an Illusion" This takes the cake for best book of 2018 for me. Brandon is straight to the point and with concrete stories that hit you, and you can't help but just yell to the top of your lungs exclaiming "I CAN DO THIS!" I started taking boxing because of this because simply "Safety is an Illusion." So let's use fear to our advantage and take our life into our own hands. Thank you, Brandon Webb for this valuable life lesson.
Great read for those looking understanding Fear
Really good book on understanding the basics of overcoming fear and why some people are naturally able to and others need to break down their fears in overcoming them into achievable sections.
Author is at times a little self indulgent, but not egocentric.
This is a great mix of blunt challenge and encouragement. I don't agree with him about the inevitability of fear at times like the end of life (I don't fear death at all, thanks to how God has entered my life), but I appreciated his clarity and motivation around the process of facing our fears and deciding to move forward.
One of my favorite books of the year! All of us are afraid of something. Fear can cripple you, or it can fuel you. Webb shares the four stages of mastering fear: Decision; Rehearsal; Letting Go; Jumping Off.
He used these stages in his training as a Navy SEAL and in helping a friend who was terrified of water learn to swim.
This is a very quick read, but it is profound in its insights.
"You're never safe."
I can't tell you how much I needed to read that. That quote is, for me, the absolute core of Mastering Fear. I took a lot of notes while I read this, and pulled a lot of quotes, but in the end, it really all boils down to that. We are never safe and fear never really goes away, so we simply have to do our best and act.
I'm certain that every concept in this book has been said before in many ways; that's sort of the nature of self-help books. It's almost never new advice. So fi ...more
