Vocally Assertive People

If you do not learn to speak up, others will take the lead and you will become disappointed. Being assertive does not mean being arrogant; it means that you are confident, positive, assured, strong-willed and determined to accomplish your intentions.

Excellent communication is key to obtaining the successful results you desire and building the relationships you want; without being vocally assertive, your position of power diminishes. If you are struggling to be assertive, try implementing daily positive affirmations such as “I am strong and get my way”, “I am confident and assertive”, “I am determined to accomplish my goals.”

Being confident in your interactions portrays strength and leadership; it shows others that you are in it to win it! Vocally assertive people are not cocky or try to hard; they just know how to ask for what they want in a humble and self-assured way.

Vocally assertive people effectively communicate their wants, needs and boundaries while respecting the thoughts and wishes of others. They carry themselves with confidence, which attracts people and puts them in a position of power; they become the center of attention without actually intending to.

Do you have what it takes to start taking control of your life?
