If you find it hard to be assertive, directly ask for what you want, or say “no” to others, then you just might be suffering from too much niceness.
People pleasing shows up in a lot of different forms. We sometimes bed our wills and tend to the desires of people around us, we may not stand up for ourselves, we might just avoid conflict.
How would your life change if you could easily say “no” when you want to and need to, confidently ask for what you want, speak up more freely in all your relationships… all without feeling guilty or anxious or worrying about what others thought?
Our guest today is Dr. Aziz. He is a clinical psychologist and one of the world’s leading experts on social confidence.
Today we will learn:
- How too much niceness actually causes pain
