A very wise young lady sent me this story. I am not sure if it is a true story or not, but it still had such a powerful meaning that I just had to share. It is critical that we know our value, strength, power, and worth. While this story is geared (in my opinion) for women. The lesson is the same for the men. We as humans must know and understand what we bring to the table. Our Life Empowered Moment is this... We must know our own value, strength, power, and worth.
Disagreements are a part of life and sometimes we allow disagreements to create a rift between people that really should be on one united front. For example, the mother and father may disagree with how to reprimand a child. Or a team of managers can't agree on business priorities, not to mention how to achieve them. As a result of both of these scenarios, anger, distrust, and division sets in.
Not only that, but they can create emotional baggage and let me say unnecessary emotional baggage. So as a result of disagreeing about how long little Princess Daughter should be on punishment, now mom and dad are not speaking for days. Or since the team couldn't agree, now's there's a feeling of disloyalty and amongst what used to be a strong cohesive team. Just that quickly, something has divided what should be united.
In retrospect, you have to ask yourself was it worth it? Did the time that you lose not speaking, interacting, bonding with the one that you love, was the infraction worth the consequence? Did the time you spend not speaking to your peers and distrusting them produce any positive results?
It is important that we learn how to disagree so that unity isn't impacted.
Here are three critical skills to use.
