Hartland, WI (PressExposure) February 11, 2009 -- You can tell the intentions of those with whom you conduct business, befriend or betroth.
âReact to what people do, not what they say,â says David Bohl (http://www.slowdownfast.com) a lifestyle advisor to those who seek clarity in their business and personal lives.
Although history isnât always an accurate guide to determine what people will do, itâs a precise indicator. People can and do change, but you wonât notice until you see the results of their actions. A friend that constantly disappoints you might recognize when you stop inviting her to do things, and mend her ways. Your boss will notice if you call him out on his promise for promotion on which he doesnât follow through. Check out bills for which your congressperson votes and why. If you donât like the result, you can still hold them accountable by voicing your opinions to his or her office and staff. Your husband says that he will pick up his dirty laundry from the floor each night but doesnât.
The most productive way to peacefully live with the way people act toward you is to initially look for the best in them. Then look at their actions toward you. You may not like what you find, but sometimes, if you wait long enough, people will surprise and impress you. Be patient.
