Not Nice

Dr Aziz Gazipura

Overview

Do you consider yourself to be a nice person? Being nice is a great personal trait to have, but not when it's born out of anxiety and fear of upsetting others.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Aziz Gazipura penned Not Nice following his own journey from people-pleasing 'nice guy' to someone confident and comfortable in speaking up for himself. Passionate about helping others overcome the behaviors that are stopping them from living their best, most confident lives, Dr. Gazipura has written a string of practical self-help books and inspired many through confidence coaching.

In Not Nice, Dr. Gazipura explains why being nice can be a toxic trait, how to unlearn compulsive niceness and start asking for what you want, as well as the importance of feeling discomfort in life.

Favorite Quote

"The opposite of nice is being real. It's being direct, honest, and truthful. It's saying what you really think, expressing how you really feel, and sharing what's true for you in that moment."

Dr. Aziz Gazipura
