Sometimes you will not get what you want by using force, being stubborn, imposing your will on others, demanding respect, and making a scene when others don’t do what you want.
Yes, there are moments when the use of force and authority is the only option. But before you get to that point, there’s always room for a request with a smile, patience, self-control, gentleness and the desire to serve others before yourself.
Sometimes the strong appear weak because they do not use force, but they know the importance of negotiation and using other means.
If you’ve tried to do something by force and haven’t succeeded, why not come to the Sunday meetings 10am at the UCKG HelpCentre, where we can teach you other alternatives.
