Today I’m going to talk about being assertive

In the seduction community, you hear a lot about how to become an alpha male and how to improve your inner game

Being assertive fits right into all of that…

First, let’s define “assertiveness”…

Assertiveness is defined as “a form of behavior characterized by a confident declaration or affirmation of a statement without need of proof; this affirms the person’s rights or point of view without either aggressively threatening the rights of another (assuming a position of dominance) or submissively permitting another to ignore or deny one’s rights or point of view”

So basically it’s telling people things they do not want to hear in a way where there’s no room for debate…

So what’s a good example?

How about that friend, coworker or family member who is trying to get you to join a multi-level marketing (MLM) scheme*…

You know the pitch, “make big money effortlessly by selling health supplements (or other stuff)”…

You can tell it’s MLM because they never try to sell you the actual product… but instead, THE OPPORTUNITY to SELL the product…

The first time I got hit up for one of these things, it was by a fairly close friend…

He wanted me to hear his pitch for it… and deep down I knew it was a scam* and didn’t want anything to do with it…

Yet I felt a “social obligation” to let him waste my time and annoy me…

During the pitch… I vocally questioned, doubted and debated his tall claims…

The result was a big argument with hurt feelings and a strained friendship…

So how SHOULD I have handled that situation?

BY BEING ASSERTIVE!

If you haven’t heard the free recording of Brad P’s teleseminar about inner game… you HAVE to do so now…

He gives some really solid advice about being assertive in it (along with a lot of sexual and approach anxiety tips)….

Basically, he recommends just saying “No…” in a calm yet stern tone…

If the person pries and argues… say again “No and that’s my final answer“…

Don’t defend your answer…

And don’t make them defend what they say…

Just saying “no” avoids confrontation…

No room for debate…

No chance for argument…

Does just saying “no” work?

I’ve used it and yes, it really works!

It saves you time and headache…

In the long run, they actually take it much better than an excuse-ridden timid wishy washy answer…

They take “no” right away better than “maybe” and then “no” later…

PLUS…

They become less likely to hit you up about annoying crap in the future…

But won’t I be perceived as an ASS for being assertive?

There’s a fine line between being an ass and being a chump

A lot of people walk on eggshells…

But if someone asks you a “yes/no” question that’s loaded in their favor…

Then *EXPECTS* you to say “yes”…

…and then you say “no”…

WHOSE REALLY THE ASS?

If you ask me, THEY’RE the ass!.

It’s all about standing up for yourself…

* DISCLAIMER: I make no implication that *EVERY* or any *SPECIFIC* MLM opportunity is a “scam” and/or “scheme”… but I have been offered certain opportunities where it is *MY OPINION* that the opportunity is a scam and/or scheme. Just trying to avoid any confusion or nasty comments.
