It's been over 25 years since Susan Jeffers wrote the classic self-help book, "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway," and the message still remains as true today with Molly Fletcher's new book, "Fearless at Work." Fear can be our greatest motivator or our worst enemy.
Molly Fletcher writes in a simple and relatable style -- and I am not a "sports guy" nor do I like sports anecdotes or metaphors -- however Molly Fletcher manages to relay tales from the sports world and her real experiences that did not cause me to cease reading. She is influenced and gives credit to the great motivational speaker/author Zig Zigler. If you have read motivational authors like Zigler, Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, then you will find Fearless at Work uplifting. No, she is not reinventing the wheel, she is using a literary framework and subject matter that continues to be debated and studied. What Molly Fletcher does bring to the table is her unique experience as a former sports agent and entrepreneur in a climate that, some feel, is still dominated by men.
What you'll learn from her book:
• How to grow by recognizing and valuing incremental progress. You must pay attention to and take advantage of those seemingly small opportunities life presents to you that will push you toward your purpose. As Molly Fletcher states, "Purpose is the rocket programmed to reach your unique destination. Fearlessness is the fuel... If you don't have a clear purpose, you are more likely to sacrifice your time, energy, and resources to the desires of others and to stay in a place of passivity and fear." As you will learn from her book with personal anecdotes and examples, small changes to your thinking and actions over time will have a big impact on achieving your purpose.
• "Trading" is an essential skill in "Fearless at Work." In psychology you would label this cognitive reframing. Supplanting negative thoughts and emotions for positive ones.
• Inspiration is relative and subjective. If you are in need of some quick motivation, are feeling uninspired, maybe in transition in your job or life, or just feeling stuck in idle gear, then you will find some of Molly Fletcher's advice useful. If not, dig deeper. This isn't Abraham Maslow or David C. McClelland or Martin Seligman for that matter, but it is Molly Fletcher's experience. In the final analysis, you have to do all the hard work and heavy lifting after you put down her book. One single book won't change your life. You will.
I personally have spoken and performed in front of large crowds, taken on jobs and projects that were over my head where I was out of my element, traveled to places and events that made me uncomfortable, and met celebrities and high-profile and successful people, and I was afraid of it all, but I found out that fear is good. It makes us alive. Your comfort zone is no place to hide because the years slip by.
One of my favorite Carlos Casteneda quotes is: "All of us, whether or not we are warriors, have a cubic centimeter of chance that pops out in front of our eyes from time to time. The difference between an average man and a warrior is that the warrior is aware of this, and one of his tasks is to be alert, deliberately waiting, so that when his cubic centimeter pops out he has the necessary speed, the prowess, to pick it up.”
You can be fearless at work and beyond in your life, but fear is nothing to run from. Embrace it. And if you're not sure where to start, "Fearless at Work" is a single step in the right direction.
This is a very necessary book. I have read many self-help books dealing with leadership and human resources issues and this book delivers the goods by covering the issues why we hold ourselves back and why it is important to focus on outcomes without...(here it comes) fear! I enjoyed it as Molly's writing style is fluid and her choice of voice makes it seem as if she is speaking in your ear one on one. I liked it. Five stars!
Bravo, Molly, for swinging for the fence in this book. You've helped me score more "fearless" victories.

What adds flavor here is the author’s writing style and her weaving in elemens from her rather unusual career as a spors agent.
It’s an easy to read book, short and mercifully to the point. If you need a motivation boost, this is as good a choice as any other.
