Editorial Reviews


"If you're tired of playing small and are ready to embrace your future, Ruth Soukup offers the actionable steps you need to get started. Do It Scared is a practical guide to identifying your limiting beliefs, overcoming your fears, and creating the life you've dreamed of."
-Michael Hyatt, New York Times Bestselling Author

From the Author

I've been scared my whole life.
Scared of putting myself out there, scared of making a mistake, scared of stepping outside the lines, scared of what other people might say.
Scared that I might not be enough.
And for a long time, that fear held me back.It was always there, impacting the decisions that I made and damaging myself-esteem.  That fear kept me inside a box, never daring to step outside my comfort zone, or to follow my own path, or to pursue my own goals and dreams whole-heartedly.
But then I learned a secret that changed everything.
It was that courage doesn't mean we're never afraid; instead, courage is taking action in the face of fear.  Real courage is doing scared.
And so I started taking action.  Small steps at first, but those small steps gave me the courage to take bigger steps, and then even bigger ones after that.  But as I worked to overcome fear in my own life, I started to realize that I was not the only one who was letting fear hold me back.
Far from it.
Over and over, I began hearing from members of my communities at Living Well Spending Less and Elite Blog Academy, readers and students and customers who felt stuck and alone and unfulfilled, but also not sure how to break free.  I heard from women who had spent so much time taking care of everyone else around them that they weren't even sure who they were anymore, much less what they wanted.And they were afraid it might be too late.  I heard from people who were desperate to make changes in their life, but afraid of what that change might bring--wanting to go back to school or start a business or write a book or lose weight or payoff debt--but not knowing how to take that first step.
It made me curious to find out more about how fear affects us and holds us back, but also eager to figure out what we can do about it.
Because I believe that if we can understand our fear, we can also conquer it.
And soI embarked on what became more than a two-year journey to understand fear and how to move past it.  It started with an in-depth study, during which my research team and I surveyed more than 4,000 people on the role of fear in their lives.
During the course of that study, we discovered that not all fear is created equal, but that there are seven distinct ways that fear manifests itself in our lives and holds us back--something I call the seven Fear Archetypes™.
From there, we created the Do it Scared Fear Assessment™ to help you identify your own specific Fear Archetype and better understand the role of fear in your own life. (You'll find the link for this in your book.)

But Do It Scared does more than just help you identify your fear; instead, it helps you create a concrete action plan for moving past fear in your life, for finally daring to step outside your comfort zone and create the life you've always dreamed of--a life you truly love.
And believe me when I tell you that this book is a game changer! Equal parts inspiration and tough love, it combines practical, easy-to-implement strategies, along with the motivation and encouragement to actually start making real changes that lead to big results.  It is the go-to-guide for anyone who feels like you've been sitting on the sidelines of your own life, afraid to truly dive in and go after your dreams.
It's the book that changes everything.  And I can't wait to share it with you.

xoxo, Ruth
