Author Biography

I see thousands of people from all over the world, feeling frustrated and unfulfilled. They have (often unknowingly) allowed fear to steer them off-course. They are lost, uncertain of the next step to take toward career advancement and personal development.

I have a genuine heart-felt desire to help these people.

That's why I wrote 'The Fearless Path' - to offer an alternative way to tackle the fears that hold most people back. I combine many years of psychological, mind science and NLP study with over 20 years of mastering fear as an award winning stuntman in the movie and television industries.

I aim to inspire readers to think in a new way, and to regain their focus on what really matters to them. My book gives readers a map from where they are now, all the way to achieving their unique life goals.

The Fearless Path: What a Movie Stuntman's Spiritual Awakening Can Teach You about Success is a nonfiction motivational and inspirational self-help book written by Curtis Rivers. Rivers knew from an early age that he wanted to be a stuntman, and he set out as a teen to fulfill the many requirements for his ambitions. He would end up not only becoming a successful and sought-after stuntman, but he also established two Guinness World Records, one of which was for his 45-minute parachute ride. Rivers is also an author and an inspirational public speaker and coach who helps others learn how to overcome fear and achieve their dreams.

His own dream of climbing a particular mountain that had so vividly captured his imagination was finally becoming a reality as he approached the meeting place where he would meet his guide. Rivers was not feeling particularly at his best at that moment. He had a bad head cold, a headache, and his back and legs were aching. Hearing that his guide had cancelled seemed the last straw, but the portly man who had met him assured him that he had arranged a suitable replacement. Rivers was not quite so sure when he met the diminutive man who seemed years older than he, but as he began listening to his guide’s words, his preconceived notions swiftly faded away.

Curtis Rivers’ book, The Fearless Path: What a Movie Stuntman's Spiritual Awakening Can Teach You about Success, is an allegorical marvel that had me vicariously experiencing every step the author took on his mystical journey up the mountain. While I’ve read other works dealing with the Law of Attraction, Rivers’ tale resonated most strongly and his guide Pierce’s wisdom is something I’ll be keeping close to heart as I work toward my own goals. I was initially drawn to this book as I’m fascinated by climbing stories and mountaineering accounts, and I found plenty of adventuring within its pages to keep that part of my interest piqued. The lessons learned as Rivers and Pierce ascend the mountain and visit each of the seven temples are profound, infinitely practical -- and doable. As I read, I began to practice what I was learning, and I’m quite grateful for both the shared knowledge and the fact that the things I desire are on their way even now. The Fearless Path: What a Movie Stuntman's Spiritual Awakening Can Teach You about Success is most highly recommended.
