Got Anxiety? Mastering Fear by Brandon Webb could be your answer

Alright so we all fear something. Failing a test, messing up in a big meeting, flying over the pacific, something. This book will help you overcome that fear, and use the fear to win.


Brandon Webb is my favorite author after C.S. Lewis. In this book he basically teaches you how fear works and how you can embrace the fear. It's a quick read and good for anyone with anxiety, and hell, who doesn't have anxiety about something.

One of my favorite parts in the book is when Brandon describes the story of Lanny Bassham. Lanny was a world shooting prodigy. At just 25 years old, Lanny was shooting in the 1972 Olympics in Munich as the favorite to win gold. Lanny got anxious in the competition and lost his focus causing him to lose the gold and place second. This loss started Lanny's journey to discover how to perform consistently at an elite level. Lanny then went on to create the Mental Management System and win 2 gold medals between 1972 and 1978.
