Are you afraid of being assertive? Read on.

assertive meansMany of us are afraid of being assertive. To me assertiveness means:

  • knowing your mind – and not being afraid to speak it
  • knowing who you are – and not being afraid to be it
  • knowing what you want – and not being afraid to go for it

Sometimes it feels hard to speak your mind, be who you are and want what you want. But then, are you really living the life you want to live?

Besides, you don’t have to do it all at once. Who says you can’t start with small doses and warm yourself up to it?

Assertiveness is a muscle. It just needs a little practice. That it is there, I have no doubt – just think of how you were when you were little.
