The Secret to Avoiding Manipulation and Guilt

Are you the kind of person who hates being manipulated? Do you sometimes find yourself agreeing to things that you’d really rather not do?

In this short article (and accompanying video above) I’ll reveal the secret method I teach to my corporate clients so that you, like them, will become more assertive, actually enjoy saying no to people while you get more of what you want out of life.

Listen … we have to deal with people every day.
Some people are overly aggressive.
Some try to make you feel guilty

We all see stuff like this, whether it be your boss trying to get you to work 2 extra hours on a Friday night, or that “friend” who expects you to show up at 6am and help him move for the third time this year.

Most people attempt to resist guilt and manipulation tactics but eventually give in and wish they hadn’t. But what if the opposite worked instead? What if you don’t resist them? What if you go even further and actually agree with them? What do you think would happen?

It sounds crazy but the results are amazing if you apply a simple technique. But you must do it correctly.

When you resist someone, you put a wall the other person works to knock it down. Eventually they often win, and you end up giving in.

But when you agree with someone else, in principle, you offer zero resistance. You’re actually aligned with them. There’s no aggression or resistance. It’s impossible to argue with someone who agrees with you, isn’t it?

The next step is to just tell them what you want.

So suppose you’re taking a defective product back to a store and they tell you “We don’t give refunds.” You agree by saying, “I’m sure you don’t”. Then you tell them, “but I want my money back.”

All you have to do is cycle through this pattern of agreeing with what the other person says and then telling them what you want. Because you’re offering no resistance they quickly cave in.

While this technique is very simple it shocks people when they see realize it’s power. And you’ll want to learn the technique correctly, so …I’ve got a great training video for you.

It’s only a few minutes long and was a part of a live training I did in Hollywood, California. The audience loved this technique and I know you will do.
