About this deal

But things are about to get worse at her new school, when the formidable bully Demelza Rice and her Demelzites start gunning for her. Gazipura explains that while 'nice guys' might believe that boundaries are a form of self-centeredness, they are, in fact, crucial for our well-being and for nurturing fulfilling relationships.

Do yourself and pick this book up along with the companion book and settle in for some fantastic fall themed reading. That’s how I feel about a lot of self-help and business books at this point – unless they are super niched and tactical, they are all too similar to keep my interest. Also, she did think he just wanted to hire her, how the hell was she supposed to know he wanted to get to know her because he wanted to DATE her? An inspiring and relatable story about overcoming your fears when faced with a mean school bully and how things are not always as they seem. But because he was really nice and liked me, I didn’t want to hurt his feelings by breaking up with him.Some of the Exercises at the end are amazing and if you throw yourself into them, you will be so surprised on how far you have come. Gazipura provides practical advice on how to set boundaries, assert oneself, and cultivate genuine self-confidence. Aziz' somewhat annoying, very male, totally self-confident approach was just the medicine I needed to break through the bubbles I'd constructed around my behavior and expectations as I sacrificed my needs for those of my family during my child-raising years. In his book "Not Nice," he explores the concept of people-pleasing and the negative impact it can have on one's life.

Ulrich L Lehner reintroduces Christians to the true God — not the polite, easygoing, divine therapist who doesn’t ask much of us, but the Almighty God who is unpredictable, awe-inspiring, and demands our entire lives. The author does an excellent job of exploring the negative effects of people-pleasing, staying silent, and feeling guilty, and provides practical advice for how to overcome these tendencies. Don't give up on doing what you think is right, or best based on the emotional response that it might provoke in a single person. Especially the one about writing down all the rules that you've made for yourself that you feel bad about breaking and the one about trying to figure out exactly what you like and want. Im four hours into this book and he’s still raving about how great the book is and how life changing it is but yet no instructions, guidance, or examples of any kind on actually what to do or how to change it.

While it was repetitive at times, it made me more mindful of when I'm being 'too nice' and not my authentic self.

Not the puff-your-out-chest fake kind of confidence; I’m talking about the truly grounded and magnetic kind of confidence . In the spirit of the title for this book, I will be Not Nice, even though I really wanted to like this book. if you feel like you've built up walls between yourself and the world and you desperately are trying to bring them down. Additionally, Gazipura's viewpoints on personal relationships are skewed by his residence in a bizarre world where people directly pay for friendships; Gazipura's clients pay him for friendship through life coaching and he pays his personal trainer for friendship. Aiden is grumpy and emotionally unavailable and hires Jenna to help him be less awkward with people so that he can run his family's sailboat business.it took him like 4 pages to go from very awkward silence and one word answers to absolutely spilling his guts? I liked and found this book useful, though I really hate when you get to the end of a book like this and they're like "Hope you found this useful, I love books too but if I hadn't done in person training I would have achieved zero of what I talked about in this book : TRY MY DEVELOPMENT SEMINARS. Then you will have a bad remorse and realization that it's not who you want to be - you are not a jerk. If you ever feel the slightest bit of responsibility for anybody else's feelings, move this book to the top of your list. In "Not Nice," Aziz Gazipura challenges the belief that being nice is the key to success and happiness.
