Author Biography

Challenge Self is all about proactive individuals who want to enhance their lives. Getting better at any area that you endeavor takes work; there’s no rewards without exerting any effort.

If you are dedicated to your goal, we will offer you the unfair edge that you need with highly practical, application-based methods that are sustainable and straightforward. People need to be able to retain the knowledge and techniques they gain well into the future, rather than referring to quick fixes that are sure to dissipate once the “high” of self-assurance wears off.

You don’t want to waste your time covering up the issue at hand, over and over again. Why leave a wound to scar when you can heal it away completely?

Being a self-challenger will light that fire under you, and you’ll soon be motivated to fully complete your self-growth journey. The point is to continue to love who you are and thrive in your environment well after you’ve learned how to do so, and our commitment is to provide that longevity.

The self help guide, 7-Day Anxiety Challenge: Reduce Your Anxiety in 7 Days, is a Challenge Self publication. Those who suffer from one or more of the many forms of anxiety are addressed in this how-to guide, which outlines the clear advantages of trying to conquer your anxiety without the use of antidepressant medication, and steering you towards a more holistic approach to managing the crippling effects of an anxiety attack. Meditation, yoga, herbal teas, diet and more are investigated as you retrain your brain in how it relates to things, rather than resorting to being a ‘slave’ to the pharmaceutical companies, which reap billions of profit from your diagnosis. This guide gives you a one week trial period in a more cost effective way of taking back your life and owning it once more.

Although geared towards American audiences (in the use of American-based holidays and films as examples throughout), 7-Day Anxiety Challenge would ideally benefit people worldwide. As a sufferer of Agoraphobia with Panic Disorder, PTSD, Depression and more, I am all-too-familiar with the terror, breathlessness, and the dizzying sweats which strike when you least expect it, whether it be in a public or private setting. Reading through Challenge Self’s detailed guide on how to keep the panic at bay was an interesting experience all on its own, daring me to look deep within myself, all while trying to control the feelings of panic which threaten to jump out and unleash themselves on an unsuspecting crowd. I found one part of the book to be a personal trigger (as it uses a spider as an example, thrusting my inner demon to leap into my tidal wave of panic called arachnophobia), but learning to deal with those things which cause the panic is the key ingredient in unlocking the secrets of why it sends you into such a tailspin at the drop of a hat. I found 7-Day Anxiety Challenge to be insightful, well-written, and recommend it to readers of all ages worldwide who suffer from the crippling effects which anxiety can bring.

I liked this book, as the third installment I've read by this author, I am pleased with this book a good deal. I don't have frequent bouts of anxiety, just when I'm interacting in new places or have to deal with being in front of people and now that I think of it...it actually is a daily thing. When I go to work I have an area that I walk through that usually has a lot of people in it, sometimes I won't clock in because I don't want to deal with all those people staring at me. I know intuitively that it's more because they have nothing else to do than stare at the new people that walk through...but that doesn't help my anxiety about it.

I manage to do karaoke but typically at the same bar, and I know the people in the crowd...I trust them not to boo me. This book has great suggestions, the one I find the most valuable - and discreet if I say so myself - is the breathing technique. I had read something similar before, but had forgotten all about it. Putting it into practice, for me, helped A LOT.

If you have anxiety - and I presume you do since you're reading this review to see if it'll help you or not, I would recommend pulling the trigger and buying this book. Your return on investment, if you follow the helpful instruction, will be great.

Another suggestion was affirmations, now I'll tell you that I've done these before, I believe for purposes of anxiety defeat, they work. In terms of depression - I don't believe that they do, so it's important that you differentiate between depression and anxiety, and to be honest, one can fuel another, so it's on thin ice we tread - but it can be determined. I won't give away all the suggestions for beating anxiety because then you won't need to buy the book, and I think that you should. Anxiety is a hard thing to name, because we all tend to just call it nervousness, when it's so much more than that. Nervousness can be beneficial, I have yet to find a practical application for anxiety. It simply isn't there. Get the book, implement the steps, try the suggestions...when you make it to day five you'll feel more at peace, I know I did. As much as I hate to admit I'm high strung...I am...and this helped.
