"In a world that constantly urges us to be more and do more, many of us wind up feeling never good enough or smart enough. Trust Yourself takes you on a gentle journey of self-discovery and provides the encouragement and tools needed to get out of the rat race and back into the human race. Wilding's is the voice we all need inside of our heads guiding us to make healthier choices for a more fulfilling life."

A Powerful Book for Uniquely Powerful People

This book hits the sweet spot for driven, success-oriented individuals who experience elevated self doubt, imposter sydrome, analysis paralysis, and self criticism. What the author describes as "sensitive strivers" is a group that's kind of hard to peg, yet she nails it in a way only someone who has been there herself can. I have always been a sensitive person driven to push myself in life and at work. It's difficult to talk about sensitivity without making it seem either immature or like a personality defect. Others talk about sensitivity in a woo woo self-help kind of way. This book strikes a realistic tone with tons of practical examples grounded in science and actual people's experiences. It looks at sensitivity not as a defect or a mystical superpower, but as a real part of yourself. A tool you can put to work for you or allow to work against you. The book provides a clear framework to understand how Sensitive Strivers tick, examples of real people who put their sensitivity to work for them and lots of exercises to help you achieve the same results in your life. The concepts are approachable, the stories are so very relatable, and the results are powerful.
