Learn how to convince others to change their behavior, without nagging them. One consequence of nagging is it actually reinforces the very thing you are nagging about, and so you get into a vicious cycle. This course teaches you how to correct the underlying issue that leads to your nagging, and how to effectively persuade the other person so you get the intended results. This course is one of a series developed by Dr. Jay Prince and now licensed exclusively to Mindconnection. It follows the same protocol used in short-term professional psychotherapy. You will learn how to resolve the issues that keep you from effectively communicating what you want others to do. This self-paced course requires no textbook or instructor
When you can't accurately judge when to "give it a rest," you end up encouraging others to do the very behavior you are nagging them about. That's because you have turned the situation from one of communicating your needs and desires to one that is a struggle for control. The frequency, tone, and content of your input to the other person(s) constitute a behavior that people commonly call "nagging." And it's a maladaptive, self-defeating, self-degrading behavior. The paradox here is the more you nag to get your way, the less likely you are to get it.
When someone repeatedly offends you in some way, your natural response is to keep nagging at that person until the behavior changes. But have you noticed that it never does? Nagging merely makes the other person either dig in deeper or find another way to irritate you. This sets you up for a vicious cycle that never ends.
If you have ever said, "If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times" or "I get tired of telling you...." you have a nagging problem. You need this course.
Nagging is a compulsive behavior condition. People suffering from this condition are convinced that they are successfully managing things when the opposite is actually true. A nagging person may appear to be in charge, but actually is not. This behavior undermines your goals, undermines your relationships, and fuels the misery of all involved. There is no upside.
This compulsion undermines marriages, friendships, and careers in a multitude of ways. None of which you would suffer, if you overcame this compulsion.
Yet, you keep doing it. Why? This course will show you how to discover the answer. Your compulsion is a response, and if you understand how to uncover what's driving that response you can cure the compulsion.
Now you can overcome your need to nag, and use more effective strategies to address the behavior of others.
Estimated completion time for the Behavior: Overcoming Your Need to Nag course: 15 one-hour sessions.

You need to overcome the consequences of this self-defeating behavior. This Behavior: Overcoming Your Need to Nag will help you do exactly that.
What sort of consequences are we talking about? They may include:
People don't like you. If you feel isolated or disrespected, your self-defeating behavior is probably why--and you can change that.
You don't like yourself, because of your self-defeating behavior.
Your defense mechanism is to engage in your self-defeating behavior. This sets up a self-sustaining vicious cycle, in which you are currently trapped (this course teaches you how to use an appropriate response and break the cycle).
The dynamic of many relationships with others is that of a contest rather than one of cooperation. This means others fight you, one way or another.
Your response of your self-defeating behavior merely fuels this, creating a self-sustaining vicious cycle.
People often avoid any real discussion with you (on specific topics that trigger your self-defeating behavior), because they already know how it will go.
Others may give in to avoid triggering your self-defeating behavior, but later they find ways to disagree silently and/or undermine you (the are exhibiting passive-aggressive behavior, which is self-defeating for them).
You may have the appearance of "winning" or getting your way, but you actually lose it in terms of eventual outcome.
People who interact with you feel almost obligated to work against you. And they may not even realize it consciously. Your self-defeating behavior has tapped a primal self-defense mechanism in them.
Folks who could volunteer to help you, don't.
Your self-defeating behavior turns them off or you send involuntarily negative signals because you are relying on your ineffective self-defeating behavior instead of using effective coping skills. This course will show you how to use those skills.
How It Works
This Behavior: Overcoming Your Need to Nag course follows the same protocol used in short-term professional psychotherapy. The notable exception is this course is self-treatment. Whereas you could expect 4 or 5 one-hour sessions with a psychotherapist, the self-treatment approach will require more self-initiative. But you won't be paying $200 per hour for five hours this way, either.
As with any form of psychotherapy, your journey along the healing path may not end with this course. However, note these two facts about this kind of treatment:
The success rate is very high for people who make an honest effort to work through the therapy.
The therapy lays the groundwork for a stronger method of treatment, if needed.
This Behavior: Overcoming Your Need to Nag course is one of a series developed by Dr. Jay Prince, licensed psychotherapist. Dr. Prince passed away in 2001. A rapid cancer claimed him well before old age. During his lifetime, Dr. Prince treated many patients who needed to overcome a problem through psychotherapy. Dr. Prince also had several corporate clients, who came to him for solving dysfunctional situations within their companies.
Dr. Prince changed the lives of many of our customers, giving them new direction and new hope. In his private practice, Dr. Prince helped individuals overcome problems that kept them from leading the fulfilling lives they deserved. He also consulted to corporations, helping them to develop more humane, rewarding, and productive workplaces.
Working with Dr. Prince was a pleasure, knowing him was an honor. He wanted his courses priced so the average person could easily buy one and begin the journey to recovery.
The series of behavior courses is licensed exclusively to Mindconnection, LLC. His portion of the proceeds now go to his widow and children.
Going this route--the self-treatment via Dr. Prince's course--will save you money for three reasons:
You pay a one-time fee for the Behavior: Overcoming Your Need to Nag course, rather than $200 an hour for 4 to 6 hours
If this therapy solves your problem, that's your total cost.
If short-term therapy can't solve your problem, you have determined that without spending several hundred dollars..
