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 of life…and still be a nice person!

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.
