Publisher's Summary

Learn to stand up for yourself! Do you sometimes feel as though others walk all over you? Have you been a victim of bullying? Or, do you think you're a people pleaser? Whatever the case may be, the chances are you're lacking the skill of assertiveness.

Whenever people mistreat us, it is because we're unknowingly showing a weakness that is causing these undesirable things to happen. We all deserve to be respected. It is a basic human need that we treat each other fairly.

Many of us also go through life never truly experiencing what we want. This can either be the perfect relationship, a dream career or a particular lifestyle we had always envisioned for ourselves. The simple reason why we don't go for what we want with more determination is because we have picked up the belief that we must be passive and nice as to not offend others. The problem with this behavior however, is that it gives others the chance to walk all over us. Then, out of fear from offending others, we leave ourselves open to be exploited and don't get what we want.

In this complete guide, we will go over everything you need to know to thrive in life and relationships including:

  • Boosting self-esteem & self-respect
  • Healing yourself emotionally
  • Assertiveness techniques which you can implement immediately
  • Psychology of assertive behavior and bullying
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Developing boundaries
  • This book will delve into the psychology of assertiveness and how you can learn this new behavior. It will also explore the mindset of bullies and how we sometimes self-sabotage ourselves. So, if you are sick and tired of others mistreating you, pick up this book to understand that you can be assertive and get more of what you want out of life. With your new found assertiveness, you'll find that almost every situation in life can be win-win.

      "Good overview, but not a lot of skill building help."

      More of a description of boundaries and assertiveness, but offered minimal instruction on how to implement in your own life.

      "no use"
      What disappointed you about Assertiveness: Learn to Say No!?

      Based on the reviews, I was expecting much more. The reviews seem fake, the book is not as amazing as they sound. There is too much focus on theory and why we are the way we are and less on actionable steps. It was no use to me.

      "returned"

      didn't get much use, either it was too obvious or rehash of what's already been said. only redeeming quality is the narrator.

      "A very good book on the subject"
      What did you like about this audiobook?

      A helpful digestible book in easy English and a sense of humor packed but with an educational punch. This book has changed my life for the better.


      Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

      A very good book on the subject. Very practical and helpful. Good tips on how to be more assertive. Sebastian Goff is a fantastic creative writer. He always gives helpful book to the user. Mike Norgaard is a master of reading these guides and making them easy and enjoyable to listen to.


      Do you have any additional comments?

      This is one book which will hold your hand through analysis and recovery steps in problems you face in dealing with everyone - either in personal life or life in society or life at work. Importance of having such a book which holds your hands and guides you through necessary steps of either recovery or reinforcement of right attitudes & practices cannot be undermined in today's life, when it is difficult to find any right counselor professional or personal.

      "Well Written, Well Narrated, Informative"
      What made the experience of listening to Assertiveness: Learn to Say No! the most enjoyable?

      I enjoyed listening to this audible. I feel more confident and able to deploy some of the practical methods taught by the author.


      Any additional comments?

      I believe this program would benefit a wide range of listeners, even confident, self-assured individuals, because it provides sound advice and guidance on the proper way to communicate with others and how to get what you want by creating win-win with others. The book explains in deep, how to solve this problem and to say no when it is necessary. The book concentrates on assertive behavior, explaining how it works.
