Assertiveness: Taking Command of Our Lives | Ep. 30

The antithesis of passive living

Being assertive in life is how we stack the odds in our favor. Without it, we hope for the best and wish things would change. This rarely happens. We reclaim our power by using assertiveness to get what we want.

It seems simple and obvious, but not many people live this way. Most of us have desires but take no action to get what we want. We simply wish for them to come into our lives.

It’s a human tendency towards comfort we must battle.

This expands on the past episode around the pillars of self-esteem.

Let’s dig in.

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

Leveraging the power of assertiveness can change our lives for the better. It completely changes our approach to things and how we handle challenges. When we leverage assertiveness, it shows we are willing to take action to get what we need.

Learning how to grow and apply this ability to all areas of our lives will ensure our highest probability of success and fulfillment. It is a skill, and it can be learned.

Here is a quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • What is assertiveness?

  • The passive approach

  • Getting what we want and need

  • Not feeling worthy

  • Taking action

When we take the time to develop assertiveness, we become unstoppable forces on a mission to build the vision we carry in our lives. People respond to action, and this allows us to lead by example.

Taking action is one of the few things we can do to relieve anxiety and worry.

If we are unwilling to go after what we want and desire, we will not likely find fulfillment. Assertiveness is the antidote to mediocrity and passivity. It’s a muscle that can be developed over time.

The goal is to find things that resonate to be used in your life today, so studying the various concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools needed to tap into your highest potential.
