Stealing Stuff

hStealing Stuff (Video)

This blog provides additional information to the attached video clip.  The clip is from an assertiveness presentation I did for The Business Building Academy.

In my presentation on assertiveness, Don’t Act Like Prey!, I discuss the three R’s of assertiveness:  relationship, rights, and respect.  In this presentation I used the customer/supplier relationship as an example and we discussed the rights of each party.  In this clip, we are discussing the rights of the supplier.  One right of the supplier is that the customer will not steal her stuff.

I never would have thought of that until this story happened to me.

Stress Less for Less Stress

We all have stress in our lives.  We have stress in our professional lives and we have stress in our personal lives.  People and situations cause us stress.

And yet, most of our stress comes from us.  We create stress.  We create more stress than we need to when we worry about things, when we overreact to things.  The more we stress, the more stress we have.

If you want less stress in your life, stress less!
