We tolerate our friends when they hurt us with the words they say, without even defending ourselves, we allow people to deliver a bad service and we do not say anything about it. We conduct a meeting where people don’t pay us the attention we need and disrespect us by talking out loud and answering their phones and we never demand their focus. In addition, we watch people litter and we do not even address them.
We all need to stop this attitude and to learn how to stand up for ourselves, be firm and to reject anything less than we deserve from others. In a different way of saying it, we all need to be more courageous.
The following are five steps to do in order to regain control over your life and to stop accepting people’s bad treatment.
Avoid whining, because it never solves anything and it will only make your problems last longer. Stop accusing others, stop nagging, and get going.
You should become self-dependent, no one will come and save you, and no one should. If you created problems then it is up to you to solve them. In order to be in control in every part of your life you should do whatever is needed.
Don’t let people use you and take you for granted, because they will only treat you the way you allow them to. Defend yourself and do not allow anyone to downplay you and disregard you.
Set definite priorities, such as your vigor, time and money. Make sure to always follow what is essential for you. Once you figure out your priorities, everything will come into place.
Never adjust your standards; you should be familiar with what you believe in and the reason behind it. Your principles and beliefs shouldn’t be traded off to anyone or for anything.
What will the outcome be if you started being courageous? People might start insulting you and say that you are rude, inflexible or conceited. Unfortunately, people who lack courage will always misunderstand someone who actually acquires courage. The most essential thing is to be pleased with yourself since you are defending yourself. Therefore, you should never pay attention to what others say and remember that you are working with courage, truth and honesty. Once you achieve those, you will encounter more accomplishments, better business, and greater kinds of relationships, certainty and poise.
