Never Be Yourself - You're better than that. Kick Anxiety and that inner voice to be what you really want. Cynthia Gould Anxiety, Self Help, Self Improvement, ebook

Are you 100% dazzled by who and what you are right now?

How about 90%? How about being a little more you?

If you want to have a fabulous life, and be the best version of yourself, you’re going to need a plan. You’ll have to do a little work. Stand up, start now.


Be more than a beige, autopilot adaptation. Learn how to change, lie to your brain, and rewire your personality to become a more authentic, real you.


You can be more outgoing and confident in this awkward, panic inducing world. You can kick that low level anxiety holding you back. You just have to think about it, work at it, and have a plan. The two secret tools are sheer bloody-mindedness and a notebook.


Only you know what your goals are. Who do you want to be, and what do you want to do? Whether you want to be a completely different person, get promoted, find new friends, or just upgrade your life in general, this book can help you get started. There are many Action Items (aka “Homework”) to set you on the path to find the best you, and a simple formula to follow to get it done.


Even if you have never read a self-help book in your life, why not give it a shot? Trying new things keeps us interesting… if you’re into that sort of thing.


Warning: Contains salty language, science, psychology, snarky humour, and Canadian spellings.


The sassy new self help ebook for people with both anxiety AND big dreams!

This book offers a workbook-style no bs methodology to learning about who the you is, when you go forth to do you. Once you have a sense of that, you'll be better equipped to go for what you really want.


The author's realistic approach recognizes that no one solution is right for everyone, so there's a lot of great flexibility in the direction she provides.


Some great stuff here. Grab a pen and workbook, and buy this book.

Cynthia Gould went through a phase where she was so shy and anxious she literally could not speak unless spoken to. She was terrified of speaking front of groups, singing, being in cars or planes - she was scared of life. That wasn't the sort of person she wanted to be.


Years later, she has travelled to perform on spoken word tours, flown to speak at a web conference, hosted poetry and arts events, and sings in a sleazy rock band. Oh - and she held a boa constrictor for several minutes without squealing. Neat.
