Relating to Personal Development
Aggressive vs. Assertive
relating to personal
development? The question is, “How do I tap into my power in
such a way that allows me to be assertive, yet not
aggressive?” This article discusses...
I've learned about my power and
how it relates to assertiveness vs. aggressiveness through a positive
thinking course I recently studied.
see, sometimes when we're looking at assertiveness relating to personal
development, we ask ourselves
how to be assertive, yet not be aggressive. Well, it's really
about getting in touch with your own power.
way for me to give you a peak of how I've found a deeper sense of my
own power is to put my experience of week two of the program I took

progressed through this week of the transformational training...
I use the term “transformational training” because
as you'll see, I felt transformed by this week of the program.
helped me find my own power in such a way that I can be
“beautiful” because I'm being powerful.
Rather than the usual, “She's being aggressive,”
which many times can be perceived as “ugly.”
you read my experience, see if you can relate to what I wrote during
this second week of the course:

one of the first exercises they had me do was to find where the power
is blocked within my body.

blocks. One in my stomach, one in my heart and one in my
throat. The really cool thing that I got from this exercise
was that as I worked with each section to understand the blockage, I

because the program prompted me to look inward in a new way.
That's what I mean when I say a program can't "change us." It
is we who change ourselves through the use of tools and being open to
new experiences. The program prompted me to
change and as I responded,
found a new level of communication within myself. This is
something that I will use for a very long time to come and already has
impacted my sense of power.
that power is an internal "confidence" that isn't assertive, aggressive
or "ugly." In fact, when a person is truly in his or her
power, she/he is beautiful beyond words...
a sense of power that radiates from that person that actually gives
those around him/her a sense of power as well.
of the things I learned about was how we can cope with resistance by
handling our power in a different way. By staying in control
of ourselves, rather than trying to control others.
far, I have found this week very validating and encouraging.
Validating because it's showing me that I'm doing a lot of the right
things, and encouraging because it is so nice to come home to a
positive environment "through the program" on a regular basis after
being "out there" in the world.
lifted up, encouraged and empowered every time I do a day's work on the
course. It is step by step transforming me, which in turn is
transforming my life.
Fourteen [Last Day of Week Two]
am nearing the end of the second week, and my thoughts are that I have
been exposed to different aspects of where my power comes from and how
to consciously stay connected to it. When I am connected with
my true power, I no longer am concerned with "Am I being too assertive,
aggressive, or 'ugly'."
I realize that
my power is a positive, beautiful gift that I can give myself and
others around me.
This program is giving
me more understanding about how my power works, as well as permission
to use my personal power because it comes from an internal place of
trust, rather than arrogance or other negative places of perception.
I've learned is that assertiveness relating to personal development is
simply a matter of developing your own internal power...
I was surprised to
have found such a deep place of power within myself this week since, as
I mentioned, I felt that I already felt
I've also learned that no matter how powerful you may already feel,
when you use self esteem programs, you're
always prompted to go deeper.
wondering about the course I took, it's no longer available, which is
really too bad because it was excellent. But, here's a
program that - I think - is even better.
program goes beyond just
"positive thinking" and helps you find your power by helping you
overcome the limiting beliefs that keep you a victim.
It effortlessly inputs positive affirmations all
day and night through
"invisible" subliminal recordings and guided hypnosis meditations.
Most importantly, it
teaches you how to find your limiting beliefs and how to create your
own custom affirmations to overcome them. Click here to check
bottom line when you're dealing with assertiveness relating to personal
development is that you're really a beautiful person when you take the
time to find your own internal source of power...
aggressiveness doesn't exist anymore because you're coming from an
authentic place of power within yourself.
Thinking Course: Is One Worthwhile?
positive thinking course is a great avenue to explore if you can find a
good one. I found one that was supposed to have been the premiere
product in the industry. But as I started, I wondered...
