​Denis Waitley

Being assertive means not being passive when it matters to you: If you are passive, you often:

  • do not speak up for yourself, either because you think your views don’t matter or for reasons like trying to please everyone or ‘keep the peace’
  • put your needs last to the needs of others
  • allow yourself to be bullied or ignored
  • speak quietly or with a hesitating voice, or with a submissive body-language like looking at the floor or shrugging the shoulders
  • you undermine your opinions with passive phrases such as: only if you don’t mind, or but it really doesn’t matter that much to me.​

The main effect of not being assertive is that it can lead to low self esteem. If we communicate in a passive manner we are not saying what we really feel or think. This means we can end up agreeing with and fulfilling other people’s needs or wants rather than our own. This can result in a lack of purpose, and a feeling of not being in control of our own lives.
