Speaking up for yourself has benefits, but it has costs, too. Many people who struggle with assertiveness are paralyzed by worries that they’ll seem mean, petty, or that they will hurt the other person’s feelings. Even though they want to speak up, they may keep their true needs and opinions to themselves because of these fears—eventually building stress, resentment, and alienation. The Guide to Compassionate Assertiveness does not require that readers ignore the needs of others and focus solely on their own desires. Rather, this unique blend of cognitive behavioral therapy-based assertiveness training and Buddhist psychology helps readers practice assertiveness skills while caring deeply about the welfare of others. This book helps readers develop a form of assertiveness that emphasizes collaboration, negotiation, and compromise. It focuses on speaking up for the benefit of others and speaking up for the relationship, not just one’s own needs. In this way, readers learn to assert their needs in ways that match their compassionate value systems. This book is the ideal assertiveness guide for those who are afraid of rejection, have a deep concern for how others perceive them, often feel judged by others, or have difficulty expressing their feelings and needs. Readers learn to apply assertiveness skills in all domains of their lives, including in romantic relationships, as parents, at work, and in social settings.

Are you looking for an effective solution from anger, worries and anxiety? Well, do not feel alone for you are most certainly not in this regard. There are millions of people who suffer from a mixture of over worrying and anxiety. Then keep reading...Talking about worries, It does not matter how big or small the problem may seem for this affects individuals in varying degrees. But of course, there is something we must all understand. Worrying, in itself, is not a bad thing that should be avoided completely. Not when it spurs you into action and solving a problem then, in that manner, it becomes a catalyst and more helpful than anything else. But things can turn for the worse really quickly if you are predisposed to over thinking the whole thing. Now, one may think that this is something simple to solve that one need only strengthen and brace themselves but as previously mentioned, different people can be affected by worry in different ways. Anger, on the other hand, is the way in which we can express our disappointments over situations such as: disagreements because of differing opinions, attacks on our character, deception or unfair treatment by others. Destructive effects associated with anger may not be limited to physical acts of aggression alone. This is because such detrimental effects may also arise from our negative inward thoughts of anger that may not be violent but have an impact on both our physical and mental wellbeing. The relationships that we have both at home and at the workplace may be affected by what we say verbally or what we do physically as we express our anger. Ready to get started? Click "Buy Now"!

Description Do you want to learn practical guide to overcome procrastination, use your motivations to conquer freedom? If yes, then keep reading... Self-Discipline is a word that evokes a feeling of motivation, hard work and ultimately unrelenting willpower to achieve. However, it is a myth that self-discipline needs such high levels of effort to attain; motivation is fleeting and will ultimately fail you. If there is one thing that I have learned over the years in many compromising situations is that you require inspiration for the important things you want to achieve or change about your life. For a spy, these stakes can be as high as needing to stay alive. True willpower emerges when an intrinsic "why" comes to the fore thereby pushing a person towards pursuing their deepest desires. If a person feels like what they have to attain is inspiring or important enough then they will automatically develop a self-disciplined mindset towards achieving it, it naturally becomes the path of least resistance. It will become easier to pursue their ambitions and chase their goals. However, there are definitely some strategies that can help you stay on track and give you an advantage on a day-to-day basis to help you stay disciplined to achieve any task. For these instances it's simply about doing 2 things: 1. Identifying & focusing in on what you want to accomplish. 2. Modulating behavior (habits) in order to achieve it. Self-discipline is an essential component to achieving our passions, goals and future planning, quickening their results. Self-discipline is enhanced like our muscles develop. The more it gets trained, the stronger it becomes. Mastering the art of self-discipline is not very easy as many factors come into play that try and impede its development. These may include factors like procrastination, indecision and lack of confidence. Disciplining your mind helps it become stronger and remain more focused on the targets, which you set out to achieve in your life. Self-discipline rejects any instant gratification and pleasure in exchange for a greater gain and over a longer duration of time. This book focuses on acquiring the self-discipline required for everyday habits that are task oriented and aid a person in going after their goals. This will apply to everything from preparing for exams to losing weight to increasing financial goals; no matter what they are, it is the habits that will have a positive or negative influence on whatever you are trying to achieve. We will look at the basic physiology of the human brain and how a person can reverse old habits such as smoking and eating junk food to stay disciplined whilst doing it to ultimately improve their quality of life. In this book, you will learn more about: Belief in yourself & your abilities Pros and cons of self-discipline Causes of lack of self-discipline Common habits that show you lack self-discipline Visualize the long-term rewards Set goals like an elite warrior Why develop mental strength? Causes of lack of self-discipline Common habits that show you lack self-discipline Perception if to reality as projection is to vision What you lose due to your lack of self-discipline Building mental toughness ...
