The Art of Being Nice: Own Your Voice for Greater Fulfillment

This book serves as a reflection journal for the reader, with suggested strategies to use to create the happiness and results that you most desire.


This is a book designed to serve as a way for people to read how “being nice” has impacted my life and the lives of others. It is my hope that by reading others’ stories that you will identify with these stories and learn the tools that you need to change the narrative in your own life.

Each chapter is followed by a few coaching questions asking the readers how you may relate to the stories in those situations, and identify what you might do differently.

A Strategy section is provided after each chapter as potential tools to support you to change and transform to the person that lives with greater freedom in using their voice to speak their truth. Your own reflection will help you to implement changing some of the identified behaviors that lead to not getting the results we most want most in the areas of health and wellness, relationships, career, and time and money freedom.

This book is written from my life experiences as well as others who have shared their life stories. The imprinted message of “being nice” as children and the power, pitfalls and impact into adulthood. Primarily designed for women, wives, sisters, mothers, daughters, co-workers and friends who may identify with life patterns of compromising their truth, limiting their God given talents and abilities and minimizing the power of owning their voice for greater freedom and fulfillment.

Being nice became such a habit that I withheld speaking my truth in order to keep the peace, not wanting to rock the boat, hurt others feelings, seek approval and wanted to be loved. I was so attached to this way of being in the world and deeply defining me that I lost the true essence of who I Am in the process.

This book serves as a reflection journal for the reader, with suggested strategies to use to create the happiness and results that you most desire.
