Susan Jeffers was an American psychologist and author of self help books. She was best known for her book, ‘Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway,’ that has been sold in the millions around the world. Here is a look at some of the most memorable Susan Jeffers quotes from her life.

“A self-assured woman who is in control of her life draws like a magnet. She is so filled with positive energy that people want to be around her.”

“Every time you encounter something that forces you to “handle it,” your self-esteem is raised considerably. You learn to trust that you will survive, no matter what happens.”

“Rejection is rejection—wherever it is found. So you begin to protect yourself, and, as a result, greatly limit yourself. You begin to shut down and close out the world around you.”

“Remember that underlying all our fears is a lack of trust in ourselves.”

“Security is not having things; it’s handling things.”

“Taking responsibility means never blaming anyone else for anything you are being, doing, having, or feeling.”

“The fear will never go away as long as I continue to grow.”

“The less you need someone’s approval, the more you are able to love them.”

“The only time you will fear anything is when you say no and resist the universe. You may have heard the expression “Go with the flow.” This means consciously accepting what is happening in your life.”

“The only way to feel better about myself is to go out and do it.”

“The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it.”

“The truth is that love and power go together.”

“They begin to see how attractive people become as they open up and share their feelings.”

“They had to push through a tremendous amount of fear to get where they are today . . . and they are still pushing.”

“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.”

“When we give from a place of love, rather than from a place of expectation, more usually comes back to us than we could have ever imagined.”
