Product description

Product Description

Stand your ground without guilt, fear, or awkward tension. Finally get what you deserve and stop “letting it slide”.

Who is making your life choices for you? Make sure you possess the everyday assertiveness to choose for yourself and resist the pressures from all angles of life. You’ve put yourself last your entire life. It’s time for that to change.

Stop enabling, people pleasing, and being so “agreeable.”

The Art of Everyday Assertiveness is a guide for the chronically “nice,” “overwhelmed,” and “accommodating”. It is a deep psychological dive into what makes us lack assertiveness, and how to systematically combat those compulsions. It’s a book that stands apart from others because of the plethora of real life examples and solutions. If your problem is assertiveness, you’ll find the step by step answer in this book - included is a 28-day Assertiveness Action Plan unlike any other.

Gain respect, set boundaries, and ask for what you really want.

Patrick King is an internationally bestselling author and social skills coach. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience. He’s also a recovering people pleaser who knows exactly how it feels to feel unable to speak his mind.

Stop putting others first and being taken advantage of.

•How to balance assertiveness, accommodation, and agreeableness.
How to practice self-acceptance, prioritization, and empathy.
•The instinct to over-apologize and how to fix it.
The reasons that keep you compliant and willing.

How to decisively say NO and reclaim your time and energy.

•How to ask for exactly what you want, when you want it.
Saying NO with impact and grace.
•Understanding your subconscious thought patterns and beliefs.

Who are you living your life for? Hopefully, yourself and not others.

Assertiveness is the first step to creating the life you want - not the life someone else wants for you, or taking care of someone else’s to-do list.

What makes you happy? Do that. What makes you unhappy? Avoid that. If other people interfere with this simple credo, assertiveness is what will save the day.
