Hypnosis to become more assertive

Assertiveness

We have all heard people say “You need to be more assertive!” but what exactly is assertiveness? Assertiveness is a communication style. It is being able to express your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and opinions in an open manner that doesn’t violate the rights of others. 

People often confuse assertiveness with aggression, because it involves sticking up for yourself. However the two are actually quite different.

Being assertive means not being passive when it matters to you. If you are passive, you often:

  • do not speak up for yourself, either because you think your views don’t matter or for reasons like trying to please everyone or ‘keep the peace’
  • put your needs last to the needs of others
  • allow yourself to be bullied or ignored
  • speak quietly or with a hesitating voice or with a submissive body-language like looking at the floor or shrugging the shoulders
  • you undermine your opinions with passive phrases such as: only if you don’t mind, or but it really doesn’t matter that much to me.​
