It’s not easy to be courageous in a world full of fear. But what if we had the courage to take positive action in our lives anyway? What changes would you make to transform your current reality into the life of your dreams? Author and happiness entrepreneur Scott Simon grew up wanting to be invisible. He was chronically shy and the victim of bullies. But an eight-word epiphany on a flight to Israel — and a resulting year of saying “yes” to what scared him — changed him forever. By combining research on positive psychology with real-life stories, Simon challenges you to join him in confronting the fears that hold us back in our lives. Like a muscle, courage grows stronger the more you exercise it. Scare Your Soul will not only teach you how to exercise courage but will guide you in taking small, boundary-pushing actions to expand your comfort zone (so that you feel less fear and more confidence with each action). The book — which weaves in stories of Israel experiences, the teachings of A.J. Heschel, and more — is a tapestry of writing prompts, activities, and real-world challenges. Scare Your Soul is an interactive roadmap to building bravery.
