5% Challange Has Taught Me Assertivness

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Yes, I can actually say that these 5% challenges and this spark site has taught me how to be more assertive in my life. All the articles, blogs from other members and comments from my spark family has helped me become this person.

Why you must be think do I say this. I have been dealing with a big decision at my work which involves staying in 4th grade or moving to 2nd. Previously I would have just done what my boss asked without thinking of all the options. But because of all my spark friend, your support, advice I have been able to stand up for myself. emoticon

I made my list, asked questions and just asked for time to ponder my decision. I even got the nerve to ask for more money emoticon . I thought what have I got to lose- he is trying to persuade me so let me ask what is in it for me?

Guess what he came back with an offer and once again I said I need to sleep on it!! emoticon Believe me I would never have done this before! I came home talked to my DH, who has also been very supportive, and he once again advice me and left it in my hands.

So tomorrow I go back and give him my answer!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon I will let you guys know once I make it - but I have to thank all of you for all your positive input and comments!!! emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon
