I was wondering where I was before not to get the book earlier! It changes your life because it WILL give you a deep insight into all your social problems,misunderstandings, etc (you name it),the roots where they come from.One can shout out loud EURECA when reading the book!!
I eventually realized the reasons for my anxieties, insecurities, lack of self esteem and confidence,-such a commons factors for nearly everyone. Now I understand!! I eventually realized what was it all about in my life,why I was the way I was and why others are the way they are. The book gives you so much understanding that you start to gain an insight straight from reading the the first page...and changing.
Thanks to the author writing such a masterpiece on self-help! A person does not need any psychologist or psychotherapist,- he can just get all he needs from this book -an inner change ,an insight, how to break free, how to deal with 'it'(and go out to try one's knowledge what he learned from it:) )...
The book is easy to read and well to understand. Delivery from Amazon was quick, like always, without any problems.
9 mistakes that nice people make, including: trying to be perfect; taking on too much; not saying what YOU want; suppressing your anger; giving advice.
We're brought up to be nice to people, to put them first, to think of others. You hold doors open for people, and they don't even thank you for it; you lovingly clean the house but everyone else just leaves their mess for you to deal with. Your niceness encourages them to take advantage of you. Being nice to them doesn't make them be nice to you.
The chapter on learning to STOP giving advice is particularly helpful. You give advice because you want to help people: however, it often backfires on you. Learn how to give INFORMATION instead of advice. You'll still be nice, but you won't be imposing your will on others.
Feeling a bit low even though you are good to others? Dale Carnegie's classic, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is a better, light-hearted book that won't preach and make you feel worse. There! I have TOLD you something, which I am not meant to do or it might make me unpopular! But I hope it helps you.
I sold my copy of "Too Nice" and was glad to be rid of it. One star for the nice cover.
Not an easy book to get into, and the advice when I finally found it was sound. Just say no.
Written by an American preacher it doesn't easily translate into British life.
