Hi Readers and Followers,
Hope your week is going alright. Myss Lafunky would like to express her gratitude to those that have shared the blogspot with their friends or used some of the articles for counselling.
If you have any confidential questions, feel free to send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The way I relate with people has been influenced by the application of the Bible, guidance of the Holy Spirit, counsel from Godly friends, the book of Proverbs and principles from John Maxwell's book.
I would like to share some of the principles that I practise. John Maxwell's write-up provides a good summary to my daily life principles. Please, read the below write-up from John Maxwell:
To gain a better perspective on when to fight back and when to “let it go,” practice the following disciplines:
1. Spend time with people who are different from you. This helps you appreciate and understand how others think and work. You will be less inclined to judge or battle them.
2. In matters of personal preference or taste, give in. Keep the main thing the main thing. If you don’t save your energy for what really matters, you’ll wear yourself out and wear out your welcome with others.
3. Don’t take things too personally. In general, hurting people hurt people. And they’re also easily hurt by others. Keep that in mind when you’re on the receiving end of someone’s anger.
4. Practice the 101% Principle. Whenever possible in a difficult situation, find the 1% that you do agree on and give it 100% of your effort.
5. Be a servant leader. If your mindset is to serve rather than be served, you will be less likely to encounter resistance.
The best team doesn’t always win;
it’s usually the team that gets along best."
No 3 is my favourite. What's your favourite?
