Part II: Ensuring Successful Change > Are You Using the Right Maps?

Chapter 4. Are You Using the Right Maps?

In the preface of this book, you read that developing assertiveness requires thinking assertively, feeling confident, and behaving positively. In this section, you will learn some ways to change your thinking—attitudes, expectations, beliefs, and perceptions. As long as your thinking is nonassertive or aggressive, you will continue to choose those behaviors. Becoming assertive may require changing how you think about yourself, other people, and life in general.

Practicing new behaviors is an important part of developing your assertiveness. Later, you will receive specific suggestions that will help you practice. Before you begin to practice, however, another important factor requires your attention. Your expectations about learning to be more assertive will strongly influence your success.
