Use the Wisdom and Power of Your Emotions to Get the Life You Really Want
Author: Ronald J. Frederick, Ph.D.
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
In LIVING LIKE YOU MEAN IT, author Ronald J. Frederick, does a brilliant job of describing why people are so afraid of their emotions and how this fear creates a variety of problems in their lives. While the problems are different, the underlying issue is often the same. At the core of their distress is what Dr. Frederick refers to as feelings phobia. Whether it s the experience of love, joy, anger, sadness, or surprise, our inborn ability to be a fully feeling person has been hijacked by fear--and it s fear that s keeping us from a better life. The book begins with a questionnaire-style list that help readers take an honest look at themselves and recognize whether and how they are afraid of their feelings. It then moves on to explore the origins of fear of feeling and introduces a four-part program for overcoming the fear: (1) Become aware of and learn to recognize feelings--anger, sadness, joy, love, fear, guilt/shame, surprise, disgust. (2) Master techniques for taming the fear. (3) Let the feeling work its way all the way through to its resolution. (4) Open up and put those feelings into words and communicate them confidently. With wisdom, humor, and compassion, the book uses stories and examples to help readers see that overcoming feelings phobia is the key to a better life and more fulfilling relationships.

A 2019 Nautilus Silver Book Award Winner! You can't fix what you don't see. But with awareness and the right tools, real change can and does happen. No matter how hard we try, many of us struggle to make love work with our partners. The problem, as clinical psychologist Dr. Ron Frederick explains, is that our brains are running on outdated software. Without us knowing it, our early relationship programming causes us to fear being more emotionally present and authentic with our partners—precisely what’s needed to build loving connections. But we don’t have to remain prisoners to our past. Grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience and attachment theory, Loving Like You Mean It shares a proven four-step approach to use emotional mindfulness to break free from old habits, befriend your emotional experience, and develop new ways of relating. The capacity for deep, loving connections is inside all of us, waiting to come out. By practicing the science behind loving like you mean it, your relationships can be fuller and richer than you ever imagined.

Praise for—How to Live a Life of Adventure “After reading the first 20 chapters, I was ready to tackle a grizzly bear, wrestle a sea lion and climb Mount Everest.

This book addresses women who love to try everything once, twice and more. Wooldridge covers everything women need to know about traveling, mountain climbing, rafting, horseback riding, backpacking and much more.” Sarah Gingrich, rodeo cowgirl “Emile Zola said, "I'm here to live out loud!"

What is the meaning of life? Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? These questions have been asked and answered thousands of times before, but would you like to know what God thinks of you from His perspective? Many of us attend church and have been taught Christian doctrine, but institutionalized religion cannot teach us Gods truth from His perspective. Sadly, nor can it, because religion is concerned with what man must do to get right with God. We have all been taught the truth, but perhaps not the whole truth. The salvation message we have been taught is just a small starting point along this exciting journey. Now is the time to discover the primary reason you are on earth as sojourners: to occupy earth with the atmosphere of heaven. This book does not teach new ways to become who you want to be or self-realization techniques. However, it shows you who you already are from Gods perspective. You were created on purpose for a purpose, but we have all forgotten who we are. Deep down, you know you are good, yet God created you even better than good. This journey of self-discovery is unlike anything you have read before. You will never look at yourself in the mirror the same way again. The truth is already in you, but will you believe it? You just need help remembering. Regenesis is about newness when all things become new again through truth, change and oneness.
The Ecstasy, The Energy And The Courage Of Your Journey A blank spot on the map dances with your imagination. What treasures might it hold? As you swing your leg over the top tube, your touring bike allows you unlimited freedom of flight for your body, mind and spirit. Slip your hands into your riding gloves. Grab those handlebars. Press your feet onto the pedals. Click the brake handles. Slide your derriere onto the saddle. Look toward the distant horizon that beckons your dreams. Feel the energy coursing through your body. Make that first pedal stroke downward as your thighs lift you onto adventure highway. Time means nothing now. It slips away as easily as grains of sand on a wind-swept beach. But those grains only trade places. On your bike, you move into that blank spot—new locations in the passage of time. The pedaling becomes incidental—like breathing. The hills and mountains come and go—your legs powering over them in a kind of winsome trance. Grappling with headwinds brings determination; while riding a tailwind fetches ecstasy. Rain drenches you during a bicycle adventure, yet promises a rainbow. Bicycle travel demands you dig deep into the art of living. Each challenge lets you know you’re vibrantly alive. You transform into a state of bliss, much like an eagle gliding over majestic mountains. You see them soaring, just living. You soar with them as you glide down a mountain grade. Those moments present you with uncommon experiences that give your life eternal expectation. That’s bicycle adventure!” Frosty Wooldridge, six continent world bicycle traveler.

Gennero Giantonio is a powerful man who is accustomed to being in control of every situation. But life is not treating him with the respect he is accustomed to, and it's throwing him into a spin at the pinnacle of his very successful career. Upset and questioning whether the unexpected death of his grandson, Richie, was from an accidental overdose, as the police have determined, he needs to understand exactly what happened on that fateful day. He enlists the help of Grady, a volatile musician friend of Richie's, to help him get to the truth, no matter how disturbing it may be. In the grip of his grief, Gennero must also deal with two tragedies in his immediate family: his beloved sister, Maria, has recently learned that she has cancer. And, Tessie, his wife of fifty-five years has become delusional and paranoid, a situation he is in no way prepared to handle. Gennero is uncharacteristically lost as his carefully regulated life is quickly spinning out of control. For the first time in his life, he feels confused and overwhelmed. While Gennero is coping with these family problems, Grady uncovers the mystery of Richie's death, and in the process, solves important issues in his own life, including those which have been interfering with his developing a deeper relationship with his girlfriend, Karen. This suspenseful psychological family drama takes place during one fast-paced and hectic week.
