Our goal is to increase self-respect so that we feel better about ourselves and our self-
confidence increases.

Using the FAST Skill

  • Fair – Be fair to YOURSELF and to the OTHER person
  • Apologize – But do not over-apologize! No apologies for being alive; no apologies for making a request; no apologies for having an opinion
  • Stick to your Values – Stick to YOUR OWN values; know your values and don’t sell yourself short
  • Truthful – Be truthful – don’t like; don’t act helpless when you are not; don’t exaggerate; don’t make up excuses
