''If you’re timid when you should be tough and resigned when you should be resolute, this book is the antidote. Drawing on her own life story along with a stack of research, Dr. Luana Marques will help you break free from limiting patterns and create a life of meaning and purpose.”

— Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestseller author of Drive, When, and The Power of Regret

Turn your anxiety into strength with Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ 3-step method to living boldly—her clinically-proven approach inspires her clients from CEOs to at-risk teens and echoes lessons learned growing up in challenging circumstances in Brazil.

Bold Move is Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ unique, tried and tested method to get you out of your rut and give you the courage to create a more confident and meaningful life. Dr. Luana pinpoints the anxiety at the root of avoidance and shows you how to overcome it and achieve your goals.

Dr. Luana understands anxiety. After decades of research, teaching, and clinical practice, she realized that the coping techniques she learned from her mother and grandmother while growing up in challenging circumstances in Brazil mimicked science-based CBT therapy. Now, she has synthesized that knowledge, developing a 3-step path that works for everyone—from teens in crisis to executives experiencing burnout.

Bold Move includes concrete examples and exercises backed by the most recent clinical and scientific research. Dr. Luana’s 3-step plan:

·        Helps you recognize thinking patterns that leave you feeling tense, anxious, and worried

·        Outlines the many forms that avoidance can take

·        Explains the importance of being your own “thought lawyer”

·         Shows you why “just do it” doesn’t get it done.

·        Strategizes how you can build on your values to establish boundaries and make room for your dreams

A blend of Unwinding Anxiety, Don’t Believe Everything You Think, and Do Hard Things, Bold Move is a groundbreaking, transformative program that works for everyone. This book will be invaluable for people looking to jumpstart their dreams and for clinicians working with a diverse client community.

At times too descriptive without much substance (exaggerated emotional language, too much focus on the author's personal life, etc.). I'm an avid reader of psychology and self-improvement books so expected more from this one based on the author's qualifications; however, it still probably could be a good read for adolescents.
