Assertiveness and self confidence

Assertiveness is the ability to stand up for your rights without being aggressive or passive. People who are not assertive usually let go of their rights and end up feeling bad.

Lack of assertiveness doesn't only result in accumulation of anger but it also degrades self confidence.
There is a very strong connection between assertiveness and self confidence to the extent that a person could not become truly confident without being assertive.

Why assertiveness and self confidence are strongly connected

I have mentioned before that self confidence is built when your subconscious mind observes your behavior and starts to trust you.

For example, if you managed to perform well in a certain sport several times your subconscious mind will start to believe that you are good at it and the next time you will play that sport you will feel confident.

But what does this has to do with being assertive?
if your subconscious mind kept finding that people are violating your rights and that you never stand up for them your self confidence will degrade.

on the other hand if you kept acting assertively your subconscious mind will believe that you are worthy and you will become more confident.

How to become assertive and confident

In order to become assertive you need to :

  • Stand up for your rights whenever they are violated
  • Use confident body language (straight back, stretched shoulders and no arms crossed)
  • You must use "I" statement in order to appear confident for example "I cant see because of your hat would you please take it off"

If you kept acting in an assertive way your subconscious mind will believe that you are worthy and you will become more confident.

In the Solid confidence program i don't just promise people to make them more confident but i also provide them with a money back guarantee if their self confidence remained the same right after the program.
