Do you wish you could swim, have fun and exercise in water wherever you go? Get to the heart of the problem. Anyone can learn to swim once he or she overcomes fear. Overcoming fear requires understanding what being in complete control in water feels like. It requires understanding the steps of loss of control and the simple way to keep it. It is easy. Chances are, you ve never heard of these steps. But everyone recognizes them when they see them in this book. They are universal steps. They are the universal steps of learning. You cannot fail to learn to swim using these steps. (You cannot fail to learn anything using these steps.) What is swimming? First, it s confidence in water. If you haven t learned strokes and breathing, chances are you don t feel safe. Feeling safe knowing how to remain in control and prevent panic is your next step. Once you master your safety, you can learn any stroke you desire because you re no longer focused on survival. Conquer Your Fear of Water advances these ideas: 1. Learning to swim requires comfort and confidence in water first. 2. Learning to swim to be reliable for your safety in water comes before learning strokes. 3. Learning to swim and learning strokes are two different processes. 4. Overcoming fear is a simple, fascinating personal process. 5. Overcoming fear and learning to swim is fun. 6. If you start at the beginning and skip no steps, you cannot fail to overcome fear and learn to swim. Every step you need is presented in the book. Formal strokes are not part of this book. Readers wrote: "I really like that you stress having fun first and being comfortable . The book is full of fantastic advice. It s working for me. I now know I will not pass on my fear to my children. You will make a difference in millions of lives." D.K. "This book is very, very impressive and leaves no doubt in my mind why your system works. The book does a tremendous job of sharing your method. The concepts, the language, and the detailed steps are easy to understand. You anticipate and explain in great detail a lot of the things that happen in the water that scare novices. Your book answered a lot of questions I have had, and explained a lot of what I have experienced in the water." S.N. No matter where you are with your swimming today, it s just the right place to begin. To move from here to there in water with ease and the ability to stop and rest without needing the bottom or the side of the pool, start at the beginning and skip no steps. This course has been honed since 1983 by Miracle Swimming Institute / 21st Century Swimming Lessons, Inc. in Berkeley, California and Sarasota, Florida. It is now in 19 cities around the world. It sets a new standard for all teaching.

Fear of Flying? Fear no more! Read this life-changing bestseller and look forward to a positive flying future. Post 9/11 and following events like the MH17 Russian Plane crash and the mystery of 'missing flight MH370' even the most intrepid air-traveller would be forgiven for feeling anxious about flying. But best-selling author, consultant Psychologist and facilitator of the world renowned Fearless Flying Programme Dr Maeve Byrne Crangle reassures us in this life-changing book that although incidents, such as the attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001, reinforce people's fears of flying we must focus on the fact that millions of flights take off and land safely all the time. Conquer Your Fear of Flying is a positive and empowering guide to help you overcome anxiety and panic attacks when travelling by plane. Based on The Fearless Flying Programme, successfully run by Consultant Psychologist Dr Maeve Byrne Crangle, and now updated with the latest information on security screening and safety procedures at airports, this well-established book examines the many types of anxiety involved with flying and sets out a workable plan to conquer these apprehensions. It offers a programme of self-management, showing the reader how to use proven stress management techniques to cope with and diffuse anxiety and panic before and during flights. Included in this third edition are sections on the power of the mind and the use of affirmations, as well as flight plans, frequently asked questions, and golden rules for fearless flying. For over twenty years Dr Maeve Byrne Crangle ran the Fearless Flying Programmes for Aer Lingus, Ireland's national airline. Over 96% of participants in these programmes now travel more comfortably by air – and enjoy the experience. Air travel remains statistically safer than crossing the road and flying has proved to be twenty-five times safer than driving your own car. Conquer Your Fear of Flying is the book to convince even the most faint-hearted flyers of these facts, and to help them towards a happy and fearless future with air travel.

Life is easy when we’re coasting along without a cloud in sight. Often, though, a storm will come out of nowhere and drown us in rain. It is at these times, in the midst of our worst storms, when we find ourselves evaluating the path we’ve been treading. It’s at these times—the times of trouble—when we find ourselves looking at our lives and wondering if we’re heading in the right direction. Author Christy Demetrakis refers to these times as “junctures”—crisis situations or points in time when a critical decision must be made. One path may look attractive (or easy), but that path may not lead you where you ultimately want to go. One path may look difficult, but it is often through adversity that true purpose is unveiled. Faith to Conquer Fear: Inspiration to Achieve your Dreams offers a compilation of quotes, anecdotes, and religious references that will give you inspiration to tread the path laid out for you. Drawing on words of wisdom from people such as Oprah Winfrey, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Colin Powell, and Thomas Edison, Faith to Conquer Fear will meet you exactly where you are in your own crisis moment. Despite your current storm, you have the power to achieve your dreams in both your professional and personal life. No matter how small or lofty your goals may be, these words of encouragement will give you the motivation you need to move forward with confidence.
