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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Life Changing!

    This book seeks to deal with a wide variety of situations. The initial chapters set the scene as to when and why boundaries are useful, subsequent chapters address specific areas. There are some very helpful principles in the book, but at times the boundaries principle seems to be pushed beyond biblical boundaries. Perhaps this reflects the fact that many readers will be likely to be struggling with a lack of boundaries rather than prone to over-enforcement. At very least the book provides a good basis to discuss the appropriate response to different boundary issues.

    Love this book

    It may not have an example of every situation you'll ever face (which is not really possible to deliver in real world), but includes most of the types of situations. It may be a little simplistic, but "saying no" should be simple. In the right situation, you should just be able to do it and not feel bad about it. I love seeing the sample phrases I can adapt and use as needed. 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.

    It was an amazing read and very enlightening

    Life changing book. After reading through the first time started again taking a week at a time to apply each chapter to my life. Book can also apply to men. My husband read it and also thought it was a great book. It was an amazing read and very enlightening. It has helped me put things in perspective and encouraged me to say no to anything that isn't helpful to my life. A must read for anyone wanting to improve their quality of life.

    Excellent but Not all religions will accept this.

    Excellent but Not all religions will accept "all"of this program but most of the program is very important and extremely helpful NOT to be aggressive which are much more complicated with all the people around the world! All the best!

    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.
