Yes I fully felt what it means when you are your worst enemy… but she did not let alone her readers and shows the way how to take responsibility of my life with practical lessons and tools…
I have read 10s self-help book but none of them inspired me as Susan did with feel the fear and do it anyway….
She is with us by her wonderful books and her voice always in my ear…. Whatever happens… I can handle it…
You are blessed in peace…my thoughts with all your beloved ones…
Susan's books gave me hope in the darkness - I still repeat her words in my head whilst in situations that I am afraid of 'I can handle it' calms me and my family too.
I am one of many thousands of people that you gave hope too Susan...thankyou for that!
You ve left a wonderful legacy to your life which I amongst many readers will never forget - sympathies are extended to your family
Although I never met Susan personally, I felt that I knew her intimately, particularly as a mentor, as she helped me immensely through some of the most difficult time in my life.
By reading and studying many of Susan's books including Opening our Hearts to Men, Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, Dare to Connect and Embracing Uncertainty, her words of honesty, enthusiasm and wisdom guided me through many events including job issues, a long-term relationship break-up and moving country to start a new life.
Susan, I cannot thank you enough for the knowledge, advice, love and support you provided me. I feel grateful and blessed for having come into contact with you and your work. As a woman, you are my biggest inspiration and you've made me want to be the best woman I can be in the time I have on this planet. You will be greatly missed but I believe your timeless work will continue to shine and light the way for others to live a full, happy and abundant life.
Thank you and all my love and blessings to your family and friends in this time.
May you rest in peace.
Rest in peace, Susan. If anyone left the world a better place than when they arrived in it, you did.
Susan thank you for sharing your life with us. We will miss you.
May she rest in peace.
I remember her words of advice on a daily basis and I do my best to always live by them. Her simple and honest words have given me and millions other a way to deal with life's uncertainty and to embrace everything it has to give. She certainly her mark in this lifetime. Rest in peace Susan x
Susan, you will be really missed but your work and kind words will live on and will contine to inspire many generations.
Thank you, love and blessings.
Rest in peace... and God bless you...
I have since recommended it to lots of people.
Thank you Susan, you will be missed.
With love to Mark, your family and friends.
I want to express my grattitude to her for her gift of 'feeling fear and doing it anyway' a mantra that will stay with myself and many others I am sure for life.
Thank you Susan.
Rest in peace Susan.
I was a big fan of hers. Feel the fear is a great book and helped me on my way to a greater freedom.
Such a brave, sensible woman.
..may you fly above the beautiful skies..
auch wenn es sich hier komisch anfühlt, dir und dann auch noch auf Deutsch zu schreiben, tu ich es doch, weil ich dankbar dafür bin, dass mir deine Bücher vor ca. 2 Jahren "in die Hände gefallen sind". Ja, es stimmt, du hast auch bei mir den richtigen, sehr liebevollen Ton getroffen und auch wenn wir nun alle wissen, dass du nicht mehr so auf dieser Welt bist, bleiben deine guten Energien im ewigen Kreislauf des Lebens für uns spürbar!
Alles Liebe für dich und deine Familie, wo und wie auch immer du jetzt bist!

In recent months I have become completely "identified" with Susans work through her book and CD "Feel the Fear and Do It". These have become the focal point in my reading/studying of how to change my life!
I want to tell you how I discovered Dr. Susan Jeffers in my journey of discovering my SELF.
I had been introduced to the Law of Attraction and I was on various mailing lists on the internet. The whole concept of the law of attraction was a mystery to me as I could never seem to nail down what other authors and self improvement gurus were talking about. Expressions and terminology used by self improvement authors and guru's were tossed around --- however, they never seemed to get down to the essence of explaining what self improvement and law of attraction was all about.
One day I received a notice from a company that I dealt with. They provided me with an option of receiving the "Feel the Fear and Do It" DVD or the "Feel the Fear and Do It" paper back book.
Although I could see no practical use for the promotion, I could not turn down a freebee. I ordered the DVD --- when I received it, I put it on my book case shelf where it sat for nearly a year. It was surprising the number of times I picked it up and set it back down with out listening to it.
Then, one day, my curiousity got the better part of me. When I started listening to it I did it half heartily --- while my mind wandered about other things that I could be doing. After listening to the first half of the DVD, my attention became riveted to what was being said. As a matter of fact I played it over and over ---- I hand wrote every word that Susan said so that I could read it as well as listen to it.
I have embraced the words that she has spoken and written. Many ideas and concepts that she has spoken about were casually referred to by other authors. She had the essence of what I wanted to know and accept for my self. Susan went one step further --- not only did she use expressions such as "Responsibility, Say "Yes" to the Universe, etc.--- she defined them. There is no more mystery what these expressions mean. The DVD has opened the door for me as to what all the other authors and guru's were talking about.
In addition to the DVD, I now have the book. I assure you that I am not reading the book ----- I AM STUDYING THE BOOK, as she intended. There is much to be learned and she has set me in motion on my road to discovery.
Once again, I would like to say that I have a deep gratitude.
For Dr. Susan Jeffers, I express my gratitude to a person I have never met; but, whose work is changing my life and the lives of many other like minded people.
For your loss of Susan, I offer the following quote:
IN THE STARS THAT SHINE, THE FLOWERS THAT BLOOM OR IN A GENTLE BREEZE, MAY YOU FEEL THE PRESENCE OF YOUR LOVED ONE AND BE COMFORTED BY TREASURED MEMORIES.
Thanks for all your help through the years, Susan xxx
She will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
My sincere condolences to her husband and family and friends.
I trust that no matter what happens in my life. it is for my highest good.And no matter what happens in the lives of those I love,it is for thier highest good. From all things that are put before us, we shall become stonger and more loving people.
May her family find comfort in knowing that her legacy lives on in her books and her messages in them.
03/01/12 Ireland, I loved her work...
You may no longer be with us in your physical form, but your message will live on in our minds.
When a very pragmatic friend gave me a copy of "Feel the Fear", little did I know how much impact it would have. Shortly after, my marriage hit another low, and I decided to face my fear of being alone, and left. Still hurting, I met a man, was afraid of starting new relationship "so soon" (with all "rebound" alerts sounding) but followed my heart anyway - we're married now, and trying to start a family.
At the same time as the marriage breakdown, I finished school and got a job in an industry I knew nothing about. Unfortunately, chemistry between that company and me was wrong. I was afraid of quitting and not having enough income, but resigned nevertheless, and enrolled in a top-up education.
I still haven't found "my very own shelf", but I will keep trying out different things, feeling the fear and doing it anyway, learning along the way and knowing that things are happening perfectly. And when I find my place in life, I intend to spread your message even more strongly - maybe as a licensed trainer, if that's still possible.
THANK YOU for sharing your wisdom and experiences.
RIP Susan and love to her family.
You were a very special lady and I'm sure your books and your works will continue to help millions of lost souls for years to come. Rest in peace dear angel xxx
With much Peace to you and yours that were left behind I send you much light and love.
It's the second time I had read this book. For some reason I decided to go into one of her web site and have just seen that she has passed away.
OMG I just broke down. I didn't even know she had died.
I truly loved this book and the first time I read it was because I wanted to go and live in China but had a terrible fear about it.
I found the book in a friends cupboard and spent the next few days taking in all the info. To all her family and friends I am so sorry this remarkable person and writer has left this world but she certainly has left us with so much to be thankful for. Thanks Susan I will never forget all your help. Love Lyn Cra;ne
I suffer from a mental health disability and she has taught me through her books to live life for me and no one e else!! Im learning to listen to my inner child as well as understand my limitations as well as capabilities. I know i will meet susan in another life where i can tell her what a truly inspirational self help writer she was!! RIP Susan
I first read 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' when I came out of a very abusive violent relationship nearly 20 years ago. Without any family or support from anyone, Susan gave me hope and confidence in my life and inspired me to write a book about my life and go on to train as a social worker. I often refer to her work even after all these years, especially when I need a confidence boost, often listening to her tapes in the car on the way to a meeting or when I'm feeling low.
She will be truly missed but her work will carry on through people like me.
I feel truly blessed to have encountered her tremendous wisdom and honesty in my life. May her work long continue to help and inspire others.
My thoughts and prayers go to her family and friends at their time of loss.
today is the 25-12-12. you are still walking with us all. and we are all handling it. (in are own way at are own pace) peace be with you and your dearest. forever in my thoughts even though we never met you walk and talk with me every day............ x
I can never thank her enough for everything she has given me.
I find Susan truly inspiring and think it’s amazing that I feel so connected to her even though we never met. Although I was never lucky enough to meet her, I know she is with me... Everyday I carry Susan’s words of wisdom and love in my heart. I was however, lucky enough to be in the world when she was.
I am forever grateful and happy that she came into my life, I continue the rest of my journey with Susan.
My thoughts and love are with Susans’s family and friends.
I will miss you so much.
Thank you Susan for being you.
This world is better place for you being in it...you are an angel x x x
I will always be grateful for her wisdom and generosity.
On the day that she passed I was actually re-reading the "Feel the fear guide to lasting love' book (I like to re-red every couple of months to keep me fresh and practicing)whilst on holiday.
Her helpful advice and outlook, her honesty, it truly felt like I could hear her voice coming from the pages and talking directly to me.
She's given me so much strength, patience, and made me a better person. Friends and loved ones actually commented on the difference in me when I first read the book.
I will be forever grateful and happy that she came into my life. Sending much love to her family. Susan, I will miss you. But if I ever need to hear your voice I will just open one of your wonderful, wonderful books.
Thank you so much. K
Thanks to Susan
The world will miss your energy and passion and the sharing of your wisdom with us all. Thank you so much in what you gave in this life to us. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My heart goes out to your family. Give them strength at this time of sadness. A beautiful angel we will never forget.
I only found out today with great shock that Susan has died. i would like to offer my sincere condolances to you. I must admit that it never occured to me that someone who had such passion and commitment to life and helping others would die before reaching old age. Her book 'feel the fear and do it anyway' was recommended to me by a nurse practioner over ten years ago to help me overcome anxiety in decision making - i was about to emigrate to Australia but was internally traumatised by the 'what ifs' and felt very depressed. her book gave me - like many others - such confidence and i practised her exercises, affirmations and 'tactics' regularly for a few years; and I always know when i need to go back to them for reminders and encouragement. I hope her practical, inspirational and psycologically sound guidance will continue for generations to come. From my heart to yours. Caro
I was so shocked to the email of the sad passing of Susan. In 2008 I went through a paralyzing divorce and sought advice from Susan. She very kindly responded and I printed her email and referred to it regularly. Susan helped me so much in that time with her wisdom. I have no more words express my deepest sympathy to her family, friends and readers for the loss of a great Woman. RIP Susan, may your light continue to shine in heaven. XXX
my outlook on life. When I was in the darkest place of my life embracing uncertainty helped me find my way out, I'm not sure whether I'd still be here today if I hadn't discovered her books. Thank you Susan
Feel The Fear changed my life. I am about to start my dream job and the journey to this point started with the reading of your amazing book.
Go Well, with love
Susan's message lives on and ripples through the lives of the people she has positively influenced and through the, not to be underestimated, knock-on effect to their families, colleagues and friends.
We know that so many thousands of lives have been transformed, with pain turned into power and joy, through your wisdom Susan - God bless you.

I read the book cover to cover, it changed me forever, i felt empowered to go back to work because whatever happened, I could handle it. I went back to work and told the director i was unhappy, he offered me my pick of 3 different roles.
Had I not read that book, I wouldn't have looked in the mirror and taken ownership of my life.
Susan Jeffers taught me and many this,I have shared her book many times when friends and acquaintances have been going through tough times.
She was amazing and I am genuinely saddened to find an email informing of her passing. I am truly eternally grateful, I re-read her messages through her books often to keep me on track.
During this time I turned to Susan's book, "Feel the fear and do it anyway.
The book has been a comfort, an inspiration and a profoundly enriching experience which had aided my journey.
After having only just finished the book I was made aware of this remarkable woman's passing.
Susan, although time didn't allow me to thank you in person, I know you're very much with us in spirit. God bless you and your family and warm heartfelt love to you and them.
See you on the the other side.
My heart goes out to you all.
que dieu ait son âme
mes condoléances attristées à ses enfants et ses proches
My deepest condolences to her family. Susan, may you rest in peace and may your star shine more brightly than ever before :)
Susan did not pretend to have all the answers; she did not pretend to have achieved perfection in her knowledge and life journey. She admitted that she was fallible and how she learned from the things that had gone right and other events that shaped her such as divorce and breast cancer.
Her courage and her optimism and positive nature will remain with me through the rest of my life and so many others. We can turn to our bookselves and re-read her books and draw personal courage and optimism to go on living.
Susan's passing is very sad and a great loss to her family, her followers and loyal readers.
To Mark and Susan's children and step-children, my deepest sympathy and may you be sustained and renewed as you grieve for loss ofthe wonderful and warm woman you knew best. We will continue to keep her spirit and her love with us.
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway - it has been an
inspiration to me during the past years of the most difficult time of my life....... I have
certainly been so inspired by her positivity and
encouragement to move on and that La Vita e Bella
Thank you thank you and my sympathy to her family on their sad loss........
My thoughts are with you all.
My sincere condolences to her Family.
Be in peace, Susana!
Bonifacio Ricardo Jose

My prayers are with her and family& others! You will be missed by many!!!!
