Do you long to feel more alive and present in your life?

Do you wish you felt more connected to yourself and closer to those you love?
Do you sometimes wonder: “Is this as good as it gets?”

Many of us feel this way but, despite our best efforts, can’t figure out a way to make things better.

As a licensed psychologist and life coach with over fifteen years of experience helping people get the life they really want, I’ve found that a big piece of what’s getting in our way has to do with fear.

Simply put—we’re afraid of our own feelings. And it’s this fear that keeps us detached from the wisdom and power inside us and at a distance from others. It’s this fear that keeps us stuck.

But no more!

My new book, Living Like You Mean It: Use the Wisdom and Power of Your Emotions to Get the Life You Really Want shares with you my proven four-step approach to overcoming fear and feeling more alive and vital in your life and relationships.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Break through old patterns and get unstuck,
  • Open up to the energy and resources inside you and feel motivated,
  • Get in touch with your personal truth and put an end to confusion and indecisiveness,
  • Experience a profound sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging,
  • Deepen and enrich your relationships and feel closer to those you love,
  • Realize your true potential and experience greater fulfillment and happiness,

The strategies in this book offer more than a quick fix. They’re based on cutting-edge research about how the brain works, develops, and changes. They’ll not only help you feel more alive, vital, and present in your life, but will fundamentally change the way your brain works.

But don't just take my word for it. Look at what personal development experts are saying about Living Like You Mean It:

“Finally, someone is helping us get closer to our emotions and who we are—instead of further away from our power. A moving and inspirational read for anyone in the challenging times we're all going through.”

—Melody L. Beattie, author of the New York Times bestsellers
Codependent No More, The Language of Letting Go, and Choices

"What a joy it is to read Dr. Ron Frederick’s Living Like You Mean It. Well informed, accessible and engaging, this wonderful book is full of powerful strategies that will enliven your soul, enrich your relationships, and help you have a more deeply meaningful life. I recommend it with enthusiasm!”

—John Bradshaw, author of the New York Times bestsellers Healing the Shame that Binds You,
Homecoming, Creating Love, and Reclaiming Virtue

“With compelling insight into the way emotion shapes our lives, Living Like You Mean It invites us on a tremendously useful journey into the mind and brain and shows us how the day-to-day ways we defend against feeling our feelings keeps us from living the lives we really want. But no more! Through practical suggestions, compelling stories, and powerful insights, this book dishes up a readily accessible plan to free us from the prison of our own fear of feeling. Frederick is a liberating guide—and after joining him on this trek, you’ll be ready to feel fully alive!”

—Daniel J. Siegel, MD, director, the Mindsight Institute, and author,
The Mindful Brain and Parenting from the Inside Out

“Brimming with heart and soul, and scientifically sound, Living Like You Mean It is a brilliant book for anyone wanting to get unstuck and live a happier, more fulfilling life.”

—Marci Shimoff, NY Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason

This book is full of stories of transformation of people who felt stuck, alone, despairing, but, in finding the courage to face their fears, in taking the risk to open up to their feelings and share them with others, changed in ways they never imagined possible.
