I usually would not rate an ebook this short as 5*, because most are thinly veiled advertisements for the author's services, but this book actually delivers. Charlene Richards is knowledgeable, she comes off as down-to-earth and she knows how to drive her point home in a clear, simple manner. I definitely recommend reading it!
The author deals a lot with "emotional intelligence"--recognizing your emotions and those of others, managing your emotions, and communicating with those emotions in mind. Is all this that important: "A beautiful thing starts to happen when women have more energy, freedom, joy and happiness-- you start to give to others from a place of compassion and joy."
She promsies: "This book will provide you with the motivation and strategies you need to say 'no' to people in a polite and respectful way." (Loc. 25). One strategy is handling your "freaking out" in saying "no." Breathing deeply calms your mind, gives you energy to do so. Respond instead of react. Develop your ability by beginning with small "no's."
A little much in this book is self-promotion. But you might benefit by checking out her counseling services and other materials, keeping in mind you can say "No" or "Yes" to them! There are times when it's best to say YES to such offers!
This book by Charlene Richard could have been written just for me. With chapters titled things like, “The Thought of Saying Totally No Freaks Me Out,” I immediately got the feeling that she knew me and knew exactly how hard it was not to be the one saying “yes” all the time. The author is a therapist who has seen many, many women ignore their own needs and “stuff their emotions” in the name of taking care of their loved ones. More than anything else, this short book is a blueprint for a new architecture of communication—a way to breaking through when people don’t seem to be listening.
Richard’s common-sense advice feels “real world” and her gentle nudging toward learning how to communicate emotions feels liberating. “Stop Reacting! Start Responding! she says and it makes sense. We don’t feel like we’re getting “bumper sticker” philosophy here but real tools that are simple (but not necessarily easy) as they are transformative.
If you have problems saying no, this book may explain why. Saying “yes” to the advice here will (at the very least) make sure you never commit to making five dozen cupcakes for a school bake sale because you’re everyone’s go-to-gal.
Highly recommend this book.
Fabulous read and breathing techniques!
