Publisher's Summary

Do you feel angry and frustrated when saying "yes" to something that you'd rather say "no" to? Have you felt that your opinion isn't worth as much as that of others in the same room as you? Then, you need to keep reading...

"The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything." (Warren Buffett)

Sometimes, it can be nerve-wracking or just plain uncomfortable to say "no". Especially when dealing with our loved ones or at the workplace. 

Unfortunately, it can be extremely damaging, especially over the long term, to be constantly doing things that we don't want to do or saying yes when, deep down, we're longing to be able to say "no" whenever we'd like to.

The fear of disappointing others can be so intense that most people live their lives terrified of what others will think if they speak up their thoughts or they say "no" to requests they don't want to do.

The reality is that people that can communicate their thoughts, opinions, and wants are the ones that can succeed the most and reach their goals and objectives.

Most people believe that you are either born assertive or you aren't. But how much truth is in this?

Fortunately, even if you currently consider yourself to be the least assertive person you know of, there is a lot that you can do to turn your life around completely.

In this audiobook, you'll discover:

  • The key difference that sets apart assertive people from passive or aggressive people
  • Basic body language hacks that everyone can immediately apply to be perceived as more confident
  • A proven road map to increase your sense of confidence when interacting with others
  • Crucial mistakes to avoid that make most people fail and act either too passively or too aggressively
  • Safe strategies to become more assertive in business or at the workplace so that you can reach your career goals quicker
  • How women can become more assertive without being judged negatively
  • How to quickly improve communication in a relationship so that both sides end up winning
  • And much more...

There is a good wealth of scientific research that has shown how being assertive lowers stress and anxiety levels. It can also have a profound effect on lowering depression and other mood disorders. Being more assertive can also help you have better control of your emotions and thoughts during all time.

Years of studying how our behavior patterns work in society has now made assertiveness training so easy to follow that even if you are the shyest person you can think of, you can turn your life around in no time.

So, if you want to make sure that you don't ever say "yes" to things you don't want to do ever again, then scroll up and click the "buy now" button!

Valuable resource

A clear and concise book. More than a few concepts were eye opening. Easy to listen, you'll finish it quickly, but come back to it later to refresh your memory.

Very informative audible

This is a practical guide toward assertiveness. From the very beginning the author acknowledges that this is not a quick fix. It is a skill that needs to be actively worked on. Also gives different situations in which the reader may need to be assertive for example with family, a spouse or at the workplace and example are given in which the reader can role play.

Practical tips!

Loved the practical exercises and straightforward definitions. Respect, practice and assertiveness in the workplace were all helpful. Assertiveness in marriage, parenting, caring for elders and setting clear boundaries were also covered. Easy, quick listen.

Learned a lot!

Very informative resource for those working to recover from co-dependency. If you've been a "non-person" throughout your life, especially in light of your parents/family, and are looking to cultivate the opposite, this is a quality listen.

Excellent book

This is an excellent, eye opening book on making concrete changes to become more assertive in all aspects of your life. Too many of us fail to create boundaries in our lives, and this book clearly teaches how to do that. I really enjoyed the author's tone, which is one of acceptance and understanding.

Exactly what I was looking for

As a recovering people-pleaser I knew I had to get this book Now, I know exactly what to do/say to avoid falling back into old "people-pleasing patterns" (without coming across as rude).This is exactly what I was looking for- ways to be assertive, but still kind and caring.

Great book and reference guide!

Assertiveness is a leadership style. Author makes it clear that this is not about who you are but about your actions. So once you change your communicative abilities, you will change the way you communicate with others. It's a simple manual, a lot of illustrations and drills. It made me understand how many of my relationships are not driven by assertiveness and discover what points I need to improve to add assertiveness to my everyday life.
