We all have dreams. Sometimes we possess really big dreams. But the majority of us just keep them to ourselves even without revealing them to anyone. Why do we do so? That is simply because of fear. We are afraid of failing. We are afraid of loosing. We are afraid of humiliation. Does this description apply to you? Do you want to come out of your comfort zone and go after your dreams? Then this is the book for you, Fear Not, Dream Big, & Execute: Tools To Spark Your Dream And Ignite Your Follow-Throughby Jeff Meyer. As the topic elaborates, this book is about removing all your fears and taking out your full potential. So you will be able to dream bigger, execute bigger, and achieve bigger.

I have seen many self-help books that address this matter. But this book is different. And it is unique in several ways. Usually books are not tailor-made. But the author of this book lets the reader to choose what is necessary as per the requirements and character qualities of the reader. Are you uncertain about your own issues? Even then, do not worry since the author guides you towards self-understanding as well. Are you in doubt that this will be a difficult read since it discusses a deep subject? Do not worry at all. The author has written this using simple English. And he has written it in a story-like manner, so you will never get bored. The author has included his very own experiences, as well as the experiences of his clients (the author is an entrepreneur) which are related to the subject. So, it is easy for the reader to relate the content of the book to their lives.

The biggest issue regarding self-help books is the difficulties that the readers face when they try to apply the teachings in to the actual world. Most of the times, 'it is easier said than done'. But this author has considered that as well. Each chapter contains a 'Try this' section, which allows the reader to practically apply what he/she read in the chapter. That was the feature that I liked most. The editing of the book was done exceptionally well, and I found no errors.

There was only one thing that I disliked about this book, and it was quite an issue which made me to reduce a star from my rating. The book was not meant to be read from cover to cover. The author has given the reader the freedom to choose the chapters that are necessary, read them, and if necessary re-read them. But my copy came without an index. So I was deprived of that privilege.

So, I rate this book with 3 out of 4 stars. The book is written with the backing of Christian teachings. But the open-minded readers who want to get rid of their fears and achieve their goals will definitely be benefited from this book. But if you specifically do not prefer religious stuff, I recommend you not to try this book.

I like that the author makes his recommendations easy to accomplish and applies to a simple writing style. I am OK with religious background of the book and think I would like it. Thank you very much for this great review!

A book that talks about removing all your fears and taking out your full potential should make a great read though I'm not sure this is for me. Thanks for a great review anyway.

This is a book that I read some time ago. Though it felt like more preaching and less inspiring, I think I can agree with some of the points that you mentioned. Good job

I fall into the category of people who fears failing. However, the difference is that I have left my comfort zones many times to chase my dreams. I like the theme of the book. Thank you for an amazing review!

A self-help book like no other. This book has a special meaning to it and makes its readers understand that we are all made up of something unique and we are the ones to either build up or break down our hope for a better life.
You have a life to live. If you ain't living it, that's failure. :tiphat:

I loved reading this review. It looked to be speaking to me. Fear has actually made me avoid making so many decisions in life. I look forward to reading this book so as to overcome it. Great review.
