January 09, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Dr. Anne Brown has released ďBackbone Power - The Science of Saying NoĒ. This easy to understand book tackles the question of whether being a ďpeople pleaserĒ is a virtue or a curse. Could it be that it is really an inability to say ďNoĒ. People must develop insight to fully grasp their own actions, and lack thereof. Is it simply easier to say ďYesĒ, or is it deeper than that? Are some people afraid to say ďNoĒ because they don't want to hurt another's feelings? Or is it a lack of self-confidence that drives them?
ďBackbone PowerĒ takes the reader on a self-guided tour of their deepest thought processes to arrive at an understanding of the true ďSelfĒ. As they gain a better understanding of what drives their reasoning process, they are able to learn how to better assert themselves. Dr. Brown has been able to craft her message so as to empower people to develop a ďBackboneĒ with the power to say ďNoĒ. The reader, at some point in this journey, will have an epiphany - that it is ok to say ďNoĒ. Saying ďNoĒ is an expression of how a person feels at that given moment. Stand strong at that ďmomentĒ, and a better life ensues.
In ďBackbone PowerĒ, Dr. Brown describes the people-pleasing behaviour patterns that are always so evident. All the reader has to do is glance down the list of symptoms to see if they qualify as a ďpeople-pleaserĒ, which they will come to see as not a good thing. Little do people realize that this is a learned behaviour, a person is not born as a ďpeople-pleaserĒ. Learned behaviour can be modified and corrected. The book has exercises to help readers come to grips with these feelings, and how to overcome them.
