for the last year I have been working to take my life to the next level with great success, finance, health, personal development, career and relationships all have made massive progress towards the goal And now this happens And in the past this accident would have made me stop and tell myself it was all in vain And I would have gone back to my old habits Now I know shit pain happens, even if we don t actively look for it But it is merely a break on the path we re on.So rather then stopping, I m now asking myself how I m going to make the most out of this how is this accident impacting each area if at all And I have already found some great positive impacts of this in a few areas The one area that I still need to figure out how to deal with this is in the health area No idea how I m going to maintain 3 sessions in the gym with a broken hand but I m sure my PT will havean answer to that I m giving this as few stars as possible The basic message of the book is fine, good even it s good to face your fears But you really don t need a whole book to say that The main message I received from reading this, was People who don t flinch are brilliant and great and brave and heroic and accomplish great things with their lives, and if you re a flincher you are useless and pathetic, you won t get anywhere with your life and you need to change And that s not a good message Take co I m

bad.This is badly written, pretentious and frankly ridiculous book, and I would recommend it to no one The cover copy reads, A book so important we refuse to charge for it The last page of this book

and if you are constantly hesitating and avoiding risk you are unlikely to achieve all that much.On the other hand there is a lot of repetition and pop psychology that will turn a lot of folks off.It is not the greatest thing I have ever read but I think it was a helpful wake up call of sorts for me heading into 2012 This book was okay If you haven t read anything before about facing your fears and doing it anyway good book by Susan Jeffers , or any of Seth Godin s material on the lizard brain, then this might be a good introductory lesson It is not totally without value You will have to be

week, nor did I purposely break a cup While I agree that neither of those activities would have hurt me, I disagree that they would necessarily help either Because there is no actual risk involved, and nothing to be gained, I think they are far less useful than speaking to a stranger, making that phone call, putting that first brush stroke to the canvas, or typing the first page of that manuscript.Not every flinch is bad just as not everything shipped is good Again, this is an okay book, but there really isn t anything new here I m inspired to stop reading free Kindle books about inspiration for a while. A book so important we refuse to charge for it Julien Smith has delivered a surprise, a confrontation, a book that will push you, scare you and possibly stick with you for years to come The idea is simple your flinch mechanism can save your life It shortcircuits the conscious mind and allows you to pull back and avoid danger faster than you can even imagine it s there But what if danger is exactly what you need What if facing the flinch is the one best way to get what you want Here s a chance to read the book everyone will be talking about, before they do What are you afraid of Here s how to find out Quote from near the end of the bookAt this point in most books, the authors promise you that if you do what they say, you re sure to succeed.In this case, you re sure to fail To be rejected To discover wrong paths To see whathumiliation is like, firsthand Me, after reading the above I don t like it, it sounds dangerous You re sure to live.And then yes, maybe, you might reach your goals.Would you have it any other way So, is The Flinch a book or not In theory, it is to me, all it tak Quote from near the end of the bookAt this point in most books, the authors promise you that if you do what they say, you re sure to succeed.In this case, you re sure to fail To be rejected To discover wrong paths To see whathumiliation is like, firsthand Me, after reading the above I don t like it, it sounds dangerous You re sure to live.And then yes, maybe, you might reach your goals.Would you have it any other way So, is The Flinch a book or not In theory, it is to me, all it takes for a book to be a book, apt for review here on Goodreads, is for it to call itself by that name being an actual bound edition is becomingandpass , so let s stick to what we ve got In practice, however, it s not really one it could have been an exceptionally long post on some forum or an article on a site like High Existenceor 30 Sleeps If you ask me, it makes no difference at all what s important here is the information.The Flinch strikes at human instinctive self defense mechanism the out stretched palms hiding one s face from the face of danger taken to less physical domains of existence, such as talking to strangers, taking plunges off of various heights or simply doing anything that might challenge our comfortable status quo The book says that when we feel our all trying to prevent us from doing something and we can t find any good, logical reason not to do it if we ask ourselves what am I really scared of , it s probably others people s fears, prejudice and or experience kicked into us from parental overprotection to serial killer ward to a frined of mine once to cold, hard facts of life.The things is though that if we follow everyone else s advice we never get to experience anything for our own, we never get to face our fears and know ourselves a little bit better, much less create ourselves into what we d dream to be We never get to take life to the next level, and then the next While it may be true that some, if not few, of society s fears we ve taken up would be good to keep in mind at all times, I ve found from whenever I ve fought The Flinch that it never was all that bad On the contrary who knows what having learned to pursue a comfortable, flinchy front might be robbing me from daily It was a good, short, crisp read that filled me with inspiration which will probably prove to be short lived as with other writings of similar kind but I hope I keep it with me and remember its lesson for long.Here is a link for you to read it It won t take you very long and you will come out of it thoughtful and hopefully empowered Precise, practical, and poetic This book is a reminder for those who have forgotten the value of pushing their boundaries It provides a very short yet confrontational message we need to suffer to grow.The flinch happens right before the moment of growth schoolwork, cold showers, exercise It manifests in fear, doubt, rationality, and escape We must not only push ourselves beyond it but flinch forward instead It s basically a practical version of War of Art Pressfield. It s a small, feel good book basically about how to overcome some irrational fear flinches preventing you from doing something you would like to do Here are some of my favorite excerpts Focus your energy on the fight that matters Without scars, there is no evidence or strong memory You can t settle for reaching other people s limits You have to reach yours The anxiety of the flinch is almost always worse than the pain itself Start doing the opposite of your habits Judgment and fear wil It s a small, feel good book basically about how to overcome some irrational fear flinches preventing you from doing something you would like to do Here are some of my favorite excerpts Focus your energy on the fight that matters Without scars, there is no evidence or strong memory You can t settle for reaching other people s limits You have to reach yours The anxiety of the flinch is almost always worse than the pain itself Start doing the opposite of your habits Judgment and fear will never stop, but they don t actually do anything Everything you are used to, given time, starts to seem natural If you don t talk to someone because of an inexplicable flinch, the opportunity will be gone forever Those who face the flinch make a difference Others do not
