Now for what i've studied this week. It's a branch of what i studied last week, which was excuses if you can't remember. I studied about complaints... only briefly though because its not that big of a topic but i heard a talk and it had some things in it about how to fight against complaints and take responsibility to change them. I'll explain the steps and then i'll give an example. The steps are: 1-Recognize the complaint, 2-identify what you want, 3-take responsibility to change it. Example: "This sacrament meeting is so boring." (we've all had that one before). So recognize that that is a complaint now identify what you want: I want to learn something and be uplifted from this meeting. Now take responsibility to make a change: I can take notes from what they are saying and that will help me come away with something. Also to go with this subject is an experience. A man once asked President Kimball, "What do you do when you find yourself in a boring sacrament meeting?" His reply was, "Well, I don't know. I've never been in one." President Kimball's response shows that we can ALWAYS get something out of sacrament meeting. The same goes in any situation where a complaint is used. They outcome can always be changed so this weeks invitation is to take this 3 step process and use it. Notice your complaints, identify what you want, and take responsibility to change the outcome! Have a great week!
