ASSERTIVENESS - Deepstash
ASSERTIVENESS

ASSERTIVENESS

Saying no is paramount to your mental health. Learn to assert your boundaries, value your self-respect and say no to things you don't want to do. 

If you see something your friends are doing and you don't want to do, learn to say no and walk away. 

Freinds do not peer pressure, they support your decisions. 

People will make fun of you, call you names. Be assertive, say no and walk away.

DEVELOP A CODE AND LIVE BY THEM

Every person needs a code; a set of values and morals that you live by and CANNOT be changed by an outside threat. 

These morals and values shape who you are and what your purpose in life is. 

Codes are developed through experiences, learning, observing others ethics and you will eventually get tested where you will need to choose between your morals or outside pressure. 

What you do from there on will determine if these ethics are cemented in who you are.

FORGIVENESS

The day we stop forgiving is the day we poision our own hearts with bitterness and spiral our relationships downward towards ongoing anger and isolation

COMFORT ZONE

Being brave puts you out of your comfort zone, allowing you to face new challenges, hardships, and experiences which inevitably will build your strength of character. 

These challenges will test your limits and help you reach new high points in life. 

A person that does NOT grow is a person who is static and not growing up.

Expectations

Never have expectations from anyone. Do not rely on people to deliver for you. Having expectations from people to give you something will make you constantly think if they will or not deliver and may eventually will lead to disappointment when not delivered. Try to solve problems yourself as it will help you learn new ideas.

FIND A MENTOR

Find a person that provides useful insight into life. 

The things that person shares should be of value to your life; the mistakes your mentors made, the good decisions they made. 

Everything this mentor share IS a learning lesson.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I PEAK?

There is no timeline for when you need to reach a certain milestone in your life.

YOU NEED HELP

No person in this world is independent. We all need each other to grow.

BE PATIENT... RELAX

You are young. There are things we want in life; relationships, money, a sweet car, etc.

Be patient, live the process of growing up and working because you will eventually get there. 

As young people, you are full of energy, you want to take over, be the leader, etc. 

STOP, take your time and build yourself by letting those that are older with experience lead. WATCH them, ASK questions and BUILD your vocabulary from them.

LEADERSHIP

Learn to listen. 

As young people, you want to be the top dog, you want to lead. 

Learn to understand, you may not have the qualities, knowledge, skills and experience as to someone who is older and has experience. 

Use this time to step back, LISTEN, LEARN and GROW your skills for the future to have effective leadership skills.

YOU TALK TOO MUCH

Talking excessively does not make you a leader. 

Telling people what to do does not make you a leader.

Inspiring through your actions and taking care of those around you makes you a leader. 

Being silent is just as important as communicating. 

Leadership is about listening and formulating a strategy for your team after everyone has shared their knowledge and opinions. 

Leaders eat last.

We simply will never succeed by NOT failing.
