Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc. – Improving Relationships with Others
How a person interacts with others is often and undeniably a key factor in whether their life is succeeding or failing. Through decades of observing and counseling people, I have come to realize that it is not necessarily how bright one may be intellectually that assures success, but how one gets along with others. In a corporate atmosphere, this is often referred to as being a team player.
At times, this may present a dilemma for a spiritual and idealistic person, as what may often be good for a corporation may not be beneficial for the general public or consumer. Thus, one’s spiritual conscience—or God’s Presence—may rebel.
There is often a fine line between getting along and the inner need to do what you feel God is directing you to do, such as what you feel is right. Such decisions are not confined to those in the boardroom, but sift down to all levels of the workforce.
