Be Assertive Over Passive
Being assertive over passive is important when doing anything in life, especially with developing and building relationships with oneself and others. Someone who is assertive possess the characteristics that everyone should want such as leadership, motivated, self-assured, driven, etc. He or she is aiming high in life by setting goals and trying to reach his or her potential and also willing to live with the consequences. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, Risks Are Good, and are the catalysts in reaching someone's goals or potentials in life. He or she may hit big or fall hard, but that person is not afraid to fail and to try again and again. Like the saying goes, "Everyone loves a fighter." This person will stand out from a lot of people. On the other side of the coin, someone being passive is not seen as a negative thing, but he or she will be unable to reach his or her potential due to be afraid of taking risks and failing. One will be consistent and not be able to grow on a personal and professional level. That person is not going through challenges or trying to avoid them and playing it safe. With the assertive person being inconsistent, but he or she is growing because he or she is taking those risks and facing those challenges to strive to be the best person that he or she can be. As I written many of times on my blog, life is about experiencing. The best way is to be assertive and pursuing whatever one is trying to achieve and making the mistakes that will come along the way and learning from them in the pursuit of reaching happiness.
