*How To Instantly Read Someone’s Personality With One Question*
One type of question can indirectly reveal a lot about a person’s personality.
Asking someone what they think about other people reveals much about their own personality.
*The reason is that people tend to see more of their own qualities in others.*
The generous person sees others as generous and the selfish person sees others as selfish.
Dr Dustin Wood, the study’s first author, said:
_“A huge suite of negative personality traits are associated with viewing others negatively._
_The simple tendency to see people negatively indicates a greater likelihood of depression and various personality disorders.”_
The conclusions come from a series of three studies.
In one people were asked to judge the positive and negative characteristics of three other people.
The more positively they judged those people, the more happy, enthusiastic, capable and emotionally stable they turned out to be themselves.
People who judged others more positively also turned out to be more satisfied with their own lives.
Set against this, those who judged others more negatively had higher levels of narcissism and antisocial behaviour.
The researchers even returned to the same people a year later and found the results were the same.
This suggests that what people’s ratings of others say about themselves remains stable over time.
Personality disorders are often diagnosed at least partly by how people view others, the authors write:
_“…although narcissists may perceive others as being uninteresting or worthless, this may not reflect how they see themselves._
_Similarly, individuals displaying behaviors typical of paranoid personality disorder may believe that others are malevolent and untrustworthy, even though they may not see themselves that way._
_Machiavellianism is usually measured in part by asking individuals the extent to which they perceive a lack of sincerity, integrity, or selflessness in others’ actions, and narcissistic behavior is thought to be prompted in part by a belief that other people are inferior, uninteresting, and unworthy of attention.”_
The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (Wood et al., 2010).
The human DNA holds many things. Including patterns and belief systems and conditioning of centuries. It has become so ingrained in you; that it is reflected in your way of thinking, feeling and living your life. One of the patterns that is crippling humans is Resistance.
What is Resistance? It is a block. A nonacceptance. It is shutting the door on the face of someone or something. It is an emotion of pushing away what is coming to you. It is moving against the flow.
Though it may seem that one resists the negative aspects of Life like pain or problems; we find the contrary to be true. You believe life is a continuous struggle. You accept pain and hardships for you have been programmed by society that Life is hard. Challenges are more acceptable than Achievements. In this energy of Resistance, you resist health, happiness, joy, wholeness and even greatness.
One of the primary reasons you don’t heal is that you resist healing. Certain belief systems and patterns are behind this. You think the health issues you face are normal. You don’t believe in the wholeness, the perfection of the human body. Imperfection is more acceptable.
You become so attached to your health issues that you don’t want to let them go. At the subconscious level you hold onto them because they are the source of the care and attention in your life and you don’t want to lose that. So you hold onto your disease and don’t want to let go.
Similar is your attitude to happiness, joy in your life. You don’t let go of your pain because it has been with you so long that you are used to it. It is familiar. You don’t believe that happiness, joy can last . Moreover you don’t believe you deserve it. So you push away abundance; be it in the form of Money, Relationships or Success.
Another big area of Resistance is in the area of Spiritual growth. You resist sitting in meditation, resist talking to the Masters, resist being called Spiritual for somewhere deep in your soul is the fear; that Spirituality means losing your favourite things of life, things that really matter to you. That is why inspite of the deep calling in your heart you take so long to start living a Spiritual life.
Resistance makes life harder for it is moving against the flow. It is resisting what is meant to be yours. Be it a Lesson or a Love.
Archangel Jophiel through Satarupa
If you want to create better health in your body, there are definitely some things you must not do: You must not get angry at your body for any reason. Anger is another affirmation, and it’s telling your body that you hate it, or parts of it. Your cells are very aware of every thought you have.
Your body knows how to heal itself. If you feed it healthy foods and beverages, give it exercise and sufficient sleep, and think happy thoughts, then its work is easy. The cells are working in a happy, healthy atmosphere. However, if you’re a couch potato who feeds your body junk food and lots of diet soda, and you skimp on sleep and are grouchy and irritable all the time, then the cells in your body are working at a disadvantage—they’re in a disagreeable atmosphere. If this is the case, it’s no wonder that your body isn’t as healthy as you’d like it to be.
You’ll never create good health by talking or thinking about your illness. Good health comes from love and appreciation. You want to put as much love into your body as you possibly can. Talk to it and stroke it in loving ways. If there’s a part of your body that’s ailing or dis-eased, then you want to treat it as you would a sick little child. Tell it how much you love it, and that you’re doing everything you can to help it get well quickly.
If you’re sick, then you want to do more than just go to the doctor and have him or her give you a chemical to take care of the symptom. Your body is telling you that something you’re doing isn’t good for your body. You need to learn more about health—the more you learn, the easier it is to take care of your body. You don’t want to choose to feel like a victim. If you do, you’ll just be giving your power away. You could go to a health-food store and pick up one of the many good books that teach you how to keep yourself healthy, or you could see a nutritionist and have a healthy diet created just for you, but whatever you do, create a healthy, happy mental atmosphere. Be a willing participant in your own health plan.
I believe that we create every so-called illness in our body. The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. Our body is always talking to us; we just need to take the time to listen. Every cell within our body responds to every single thought we think and every word we speak.
You can choose to think thoughts that create a mental atmosphere that contributes to illness, or you can choose to think thoughts that create a healthy atmosphere both within you and around you.
Positive Affirmations for Health

Choose What You Fight…
I once met a very successful business woman and I asked her to share her secret with me.
She smiled and said to me..
I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters.
I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me…
I stopped fighting over unnecessary issues with my spouse…
I stopped fighting for attention…
I stopped fighting to meet up with public expectation…
I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight…
“And I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny. Then I started winning big”.
That was the day I gave up on small fights.
Some fights are not worth your time.
Fight to make your visions and dreams come alive!
Fight the good fight of faith!
Fight for your destiny not for your ego!
Entrepreneurs shouldn’t have time for unnecessary fights!
Visionaries don’t cluster their mind with nonsense bickering!
Always ask, what is this fight adding to my destiny, my goal, my progress?
Choose what you fight for in 2018 as a year for greatness.
Compliments of the season to all the game changers.

An insightful New Year Message:
**Last year, I had a surgery and my gallbladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job in the Publishing company in which I had spent 30 years of my life
**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exams because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.
At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such a bad year!!
When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper, left the room silently and came back with another paper which she placed on the side of her husband’s writing.
The husband found the following written on the paper:
**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain.
**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace.
**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator.
**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability.
At the end she wrote: Last year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well!!
See!! The same incidents but different viewpoints.
*Moral:* In our daily lives we must see that it’s not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy.
There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!!
Your current position is somebody’s future expectation.
Your life now is somebody’s prayer request.
Don’t let the devil point at you that somebody is doing better than you. It is a strategy for ingratitude.
Anything you celebrate multiplies, anything you despise diminishes.
Appreciation is the vehicle for acceleration.
Gratitude is the lift to great altitude.
To see what God will do, you must acknowledge what God has done.
Stay grateful. Assess 2017 with a grateful heart and thank God for 2018.Happy New Year.
Personal development doesn’t need to be something arduous or stuffy.
Rather it’s a lifelong process of gaining skills, setting big goals, and increasing confidence.
Through personal empowerment and spiritual growth, you can align with a more fulfilling and higher quality life.
Developing yourself personally is about realizing and maximizing your full potential, and uncovering the true reason for why you are alive in the physical.
Without focusing on your personal growth first, your service to others will be limited because you will not have the required energy or skills to invest in creating a better world for you and for humanity.
As you continue forward, you will receive signs and guidance that you are on your right path and how specifically you should continue.
Love opens this guidance.
Love opens the door.
Listen and act upon the guidance you receive, and the door will open wider, allowing more growth and more of your authentic truth to shine into this present moment.
Keep taking steps to bring blessings and growth into your own life by focusing on growing personally, stepping into your power, and aligning with more of your authentic truth.
Nurturing your personal growth through reading, journaling, meditating, and developing skills is a foundation you can then build on to accomplish your life’s work.
