The Holiday Season is fast approaching, and this is a great time to learn how to say “No”. Dr. Brown presents a detailed look into the science of saying “No”, and how to develop a “Backbone” in order to do so.
Aspen, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/16/2013 -- The Holiday Season is a time when everybody likes to say “Yes” and “Sure”, but the problem arises when they really wanted to say “No”. Sometimes it means being treated like a Door Mat instead of an individual person with feelings and desires. Dr. Anne Brown has published a new book called “Backbone Power: The Science of Saying No”, which has the capacity to empower people to stand their ground and say “No”.
Readers of this informative book will learn more about themselves than they ever knew, and learn how to banish that horrible feeling when they just couldn’t summon the nerve to say “No”. This is part of maturing, as no person can reach their full potential if they are more worried about pleasing others than pleasing themselves. It is part of the dynamic, a person is an “individual”, and must also be able to enjoy a sense of self-esteem and confidence. Being walked all over by friends, acquaintances and family members doesn’t help reach that end.
Dr. Anne Brown was sure to create a book that was interactive. “Backbone Power: The Science of Saying No” includes homework and a Workbook Section. The reader’s mind is challenged, and the result is a better look into the “self”, and what has been driving the reader to become a “people-pleaser”, at all risks. Clearly, Dr. Brown is able to introduce these types of individuals to a new paradigm of thinking.
The time to read “Backbone Power: The Science of Saying No” is now. What a great time to develop a backbone in anticipation of the onslaught of requests to say “Yes”, when “No” is really the desired answer, such as: Hosting the Holiday party, Going somewhere not really enjoyable, Buying gifts when money is scarce, Cooking huge meals for the family, and most of all to say “No” to the Guilt others would have you bear for standing ground.
