Sometimes our differences make it hard for us to get along with others. Often the reason is a lack of understanding those around us. God made each of us different and created unique personalities within us that influence our actions and reactions.
We can’t control the actions of others. But we can control our reactions to them. Romans 12:18 says, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” The key phrase to that is in the middle – “as far as it depends on you.” We have a responsibility in our relationships – personal, family, business, or casual – to do everything we can to live peacefully. One of the core elements to living peacefully with others is understanding the personalities.
The best way to do that is to learn to understand those around us and what makes them act the way they do. Understanding personalities will not only help you to live at peace with everyone in your sphere of influence, but will also help you realize why you act and feel the way you do about life.
“To effectively communicate we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins
Linda Gilden and Tama Westman teamed together years ago to help people learn how to clue into the similarities and differences in others that, once understood, allows grace and growth in relationships.
“It’s all about grace,” says Linda, a purposeful personality.
“It’s all about growth,” says Tama, a powerful personality.
Two distinctly different personalities, who understand one another, who have learned how to take those things that would normally divide individuals and use them instead as building blocks in their friendship. Their book, PERSONALity Perspectives – Clues to Building Better Relationships (coming soon from OakTara), is designed to help you clue into yourself and others in a new, fascinating, PERSONAL way.
