Pushy? Who, me? Never!

 

I’ve been accused of being many things in my life. Pushy is one of them.

And I’m always surprised, because when somebody says to me “you’re so pushy!”, it always sounds like it’s a bad thing to be. And frankly I don’t get that.

I believe there is nothing wrong with being clear on what you want and asking for it. I also don’t believe there is anything wrong in asking for it a second time. Or even a third.

And, as far as I am concerned, that’s not pushy. That is just being persistent.

Until you can give me a clear no, I’ll keep giving you the opportunity to say yes.  If you are thinking of becoming a client of mine, I’ll keep giving you a gentle nudge until you have said a very clear yes. Or no.

The women who want to work with me have come out of hell-on-earth relationships and until they have recreated their lives to exclude their partner, they are still vulnerable.

They are vulnerable to succumbing to loneliness, to self-doubt and to fears of not being able to make ends meet. Sometimes they sit and imagine their future stretching ahead of them; empty, lonely and bleak.

At those times, their hell-on-earth relationship doesn’t seem so bad and they are most at risk of going back.

I know.

I’ve been there.

And I know that there is a better life; one where you feel competent, confident and in control.

But it doesn’t happen overnight. And I can help.

Me being pushy might just save your life.
