Too Nice for Your Own Good

How to Stop Making 9 Self-Sabotaging Mistakes
By Duke Robinson (Electronic Book, 2000)
If you're like most folks, you were raised to be "nice." Yet now you find yourself asking: "If I'm so nice, why isn't my life better?" Renowned minister and lecturer Duke Robinson has the answer. Robinson says that well-intended behavior is essential to a humane society, but carries a down side. Being nice often means we take on too much, tell little lies, strive endlessly for perfection, and fall prey to other self-defeating behaviors. Now Robinson outlines the nine unconscious mistakes nice people make daily, and he shows how to correct them and avoid unnecessary stress with life-affirming actions. Learn how to:

Say "no" and save yourself from burnout

Tell others what you want, and actually receive it

Express anger in healing ways that maintain valued relationships

Respond effectively when irrationally criticized or attacked

Liberate your true self.

Are you, like many of us, too nice for your own good? This remarkable book will empower you to get what you need and deserve out oflife... and still be a nice person!

"I hope many people will find and read this book, and benefit from Duke Robinson's honesty, eloquence, and
