Having a good day or a bad day?
Let me ask you a question... Have you ever experienced the frustration of not being able to communicate with someone? Certainly you have haven’t you? Possibly on a daily or weekly basis, right? So what do you do about it?
If you learn about the four DISC styles and what their DISC Life Focus and needs are, you will be well on the way to feeling less frustrated when it comes to the people in your life.
The good news is that human beings are not all the same. The bad news is that human beings are not all the same! Whether this fact is an asset or a challenge to you depends on how ‘people-literate’ (‘DISC’-literate’) you are and whether or not you have already DISCovered your own DISC style.
People all are motivated… but we cannot motivate each other. That may seem hard to get, given that businesses spend millions of dollars each year sending their people off to seminars or bringing in motivational speakers to do just that!
What most people miss is the fact that each behavioral style is motivated by two basic drives – our “needs-motivation” as well as our beliefs or values. These are the needs and standards that guide each of our lives and create the differences within each of us. These guideposts determine our choices such as what clothes we buy and wear, what car we drive, where we live, who we marry, what church we attend, etc. So if motivation is “why people do what they do” and our behavior is a distinct way of thinking, feeling or acting, once we see a person’s behavior we can identify what might motivate them.
And when you can identify the reasons others do what they do, you can then create an environment in which those others are more likely to be productively self-motivated.
So the sooner you can learn what each style values, seeks, needs, and avoids, the easier it is to tune in and relate to them. By the way this small piece of information you have just read, is the key to eliminating some of those frustrations you feel around others!
For the most part we don't intuitively know how other styles think or feel because, as human beings, we tend to reference everything against the way WE would do things and we don’t often ask questions. So, you may ask, “How can we learn more about and recognize what makes each of us unique?”
The best way to know others and the personality differences that makes each one of us unique, is to start by taking your own DISC personality profile.

Even if you have taken a DISC profile somewhere else, it is a good idea to tune in on yourself with a different focus – “Me at work,” “Me at home,” “Me in my personal or business partnerships.” You are changing and growing all the time. The question is, “How?”

We hope you will stay with it by continuing to follow our blog, read our articles, and explore all the other types of profiles that will also give you another access to personal and business mastery. This journey we are on is to understand yourself and DISCover what it means to own the Magic of YOU!
Better communication and less frustration when it comes to people is only a click away.
Until next time, keep that smile on your face!
It beautifies the world!

hanks for sharing the article, and more importantly, your personal experience of mindfully using our emotions as data about our inner state and knowing when it’s better to de-escalate by taking a time out are great tools. Appreciate you reading and sharing your story since I can certainly relate and I think others can to
