Back cover copy
Advance praise for Enough Is Enough! "Enough Is Enough! awakens us to the wisdom of our own integrity and conscience. It skillfully shows us how living in truth can bless our life." --Jack Kornfield, author, A Path With Heart "Jane Straus reveals a simple, liberating truth: if you're enduring then you're not really living. Enough is Enough! reverberates with wonderful stories of human courage that will inspire you to move forward with your life." --Susan Jeffers, author, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and Life Is Huge! "Jane Straus has written a deceptively simple book with profound implications. Read the first chapter, and if it does not prompt a deep desire to read the rest of the book and practice her procedures, you may be ready for sainthood and probably don't need to eat either. This is truly a fine book." --Peter Coyote, actor; author, Sleeping Where I Fall "I have the privilege of inside knowledge. I brought my pain and confusion to Jane Straus and learned from her firsthand. For those who can't meet her personally, at last you have this book. The clarity, honesty, and integrity of this wise woman's practice illuminate every page. Read and understand. It's not her book. It's yours." --Rob Nilsson, filmmaker; winner, Camera d'Or, Cannes Film Festival, and Grand Prize, Sundance Film Festival "Jane Straus writes with great compassion. She makes a crucial connection between living a life of truth and experiencing love, forgiveness, and a wisdom of the heart." --Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., author, Love Is Letting Go of Fear
Enough Is Enough! Are you hindered by fearful, limiting thoughts? I'm not smart enough. It's too late for me. I can't do this alone. Do you long for more joy, challenge, or fulfillment? When you merely endure life, you are surviving, not thriving. You feel resigned rather than inspired--exhausted rather than accomplished. And chances are you know something is missing--but you don't know what to do about it. Using Enough Is Enough! as your guide, you will discover how your unique symptoms of endurance are holding you back. And you will learn how to calm your fears and let go of the self-judgments that keep you stuck in your rut. By aligning with your deepest personal truths instead of acting from fear, you will release yourself from needless suffering. And you will be inspired to manifest the extraordinary life you were meant to live. Written by the highly successful seminar leader and life coach Jane Straus, Enough Is Enough! takes you on a compelling spiritual, emotional, and intellectual journey toward a rewarding life that is truly worth living. In this remarkable book, Jane Straus tells her own story of transformation with vulnerability and humor and shares the experiences of clients, friends, and seminar participants who have also been able to break free of the shackles of endurance. Enough Is Enough! offers encouragement, insights, and powerful exercises to ensure that the next chapter of your life story is about thriving joyfully as the unique person you have always been and the extraordinary one you are still becoming.
