Start with you…
When you are having trouble communicating.
When you can not get your kid(s) to respond appropriately.
When your team is not cooperating.
When your marriage is struggling.
Before you address the problem with the other person…
Ask, “What is wrong with me?”
- What in me needs to change?
- How am I contributing to the problem?
- How could I communicate differently?
Before you address the problems with others, look inside yourself.
I have accepted God’s free gift of eternal life, given to all thru Jesus. I start with God and allow Him to examine my heart and shape me into His image. But too often I look at the other person first and think it is all about them.
We have a responsibility to humbly consider our own shortcomings. Many times, if we will look at ourselves, we will either find the problem or we will find a better way to address the problem.
Get to know the person in the mirror, before you criticize others.
