Different Is Good!

Developing your appreciation of other

people for their value to you because of

how different they are from you.


In the recent past, experts thought that fertilization occurred when enzymes in the head of each sperm, acting like dynamite, blasted through the outer shell of the egg so that the sperm could lodge inside.

Today we understand that each egg SELECTS the sperm it mates with, making the first irrevocable decision in one's life. Indeed, rather than passively participating in this drama, the egg opens its shell and literally embraces the sperm it feels attracted to.

  • How many times do we hear about people not feeling loved by their partner, much to the partner’s surprise and frustration?
  • According to Dr. Gary Chapman, author of “The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate” it is often the case that love is there and being expressed, but notin the “language” that the loved one understands.
  • Each of us has a primary language of love…ways that we express love, and things we see as expressions of love.If we can learn and use each other’s love language, we can increase the quality in our relationships.
we all seek happy and fulfilling relationships

We All Seek Happy and Fulfilling Relationships



…we often miss each other’s heart.

  • Words of Affirmation.

An unsolicited compliment, a kind word, and words of encouragement are very powerful. Mark Twain once said “I can live for two months on a good compliment.”

  • Quality Time.

This means togetherness and personal connection, not just being physically nearby. Having a quality conversation, really listening to each other. Taking time to have fun together. Doing things you each enjoy; exploring new activities together.

  • Receiving Gifts.

The message here is that the gift giver was thinking of you and wanted to let you know. Expense is not the main thing – it’s the meaning of the gift, the thought behind it. A favorite treat picked up on the way home or a card for no reason sends a priceless message.

  • Acts of Service.

Cooking, washing the car, or doing the laundry can be acts of love. Challenge the stereotypes. Doing something that is helpful to your loved one will be noticed, if such acts of service is their language of love.

  • Physical Touch.

A hug, a kiss, holding hands, and sexual intercourse are all ways of communicating love. Research indicates that positive physical contact is important to emotional health; some say you need four hugs a day.

Program to help people discover who they really are at their best, to truly discover their heart.

It’s focus is only on motivation, what you love about life.

You choose from 56 descriptive words the ones that describe you.

Then you rate these from 1 to 10.

Then you choose the top 5 and prioritize them.

The goal is to understand others and be able to support their needs, appreciating the differences.

Ratings are based on feelings and not thinking, revealing a person’s motivations that lead to their happiness and success. It is not about personality.

The FOUR Countries:

Your HOME country is like a “temperament” or where you “come from” in the way of customs, traditions, ways of doing things, words and phrases.

We love the language and traditions of our own emotional country and frequently misunderstand others and become insulted.

Many people are attracted to date and marry someone who is very different from themselves.

It’s exciting to have different points of view, thoughts, and perspectives.

After marriage and living together, those same differences start to “drive them crazy”.
