The Best Thing I Brought Back from Chile

11193333_855047217901041_872929724635315455_nI brought back several souvenirs and lots of candy that had sentimental value to my family. But the best thing I brought back was actually two people. I didn’t bring them back, but they traveled the same day on a different airline, and I drove to a different airport to pick them up and took them to my family to surprise them.

Who? Thanks for asking. My Tia Monica is like my Chilean mom. She was our maid or nanny growing up since I was 2 years old; a very special lady to us. I always go to her house to eat some of my favorite dishes when I go to Chile. This time we ate and visited, and I gave her an invitation to my sister’s wedding, with her name on it. I meant it as a keepsake, but her daughter said, “You should go!” And lo and behold, the next day she had a passport and they were shopping for tickets. She and her granddaughter came and even though they were delayed a few hours we pulled off a very nice surprise for our family. The video says it all!

What Color are You?

I don’t know how you feel about personality profiles and studies. I like them. When you get that the goal is not to pigeonhole people, label them, and put them in a box, they are very helpful in bringing understanding- to yourself first, then to others around you. I’ve been exposed to many different systems, and completed various different assessments. They’re all good and somewhat similar, however my favorite of all by far is simply called “The Color Code”. It goes deeper than the other competing systems- getting to the motive behind the behavior. If you only look at behavior, then you’ll see what you do. You already know that! What’s important is to see why you do what you do. What’s the driving core motive operating under the surface?

I’m a yellow (motive of FUN), with a strong secondary red color (motive of POWER). My red helps me to be a productive yellow, and actually get projects done.  If it weren’t for my secondary red, well, for one, you wouldn’t be reading this blog, and I’d probably be eating fruity pebbles all day watching entire seasons of the Cosby show on Netflix instant. Hey, that’s a good idea! Anyway, back to the blog. My wife is pretty much the opposite of me. She’s core blue (motive of INTIMACY) with secondary white (motive of PEACE). So we learn from each other.  Here you can see just a small taste of some of what makes us different (which like all things can be good or bad).

I would recommend to you this system, because I know how it’s help me and my wife in our marriage. We’re a living example of the power of motive training, and are very grateful to Dr. Taylor Hartman for developing such a wonderful tool. Once you dive into the world of color and motive it will affect all of you relationships in life- in a positive way (work, home, spouse, kids, church, friends, etc.). Life is all about relationships, when you really think about it. That’s Dr. Hartman’s message to the world, and my message to you right now. Much more could be said, but I’ll save that for future posts.

So what color are you? You can find out very easily by taking a free test now. Just be forewarned, you may quickly be wanting to color code some of your favorite people in life- it’s very contagious, in a good way. Go now, and remember to answer the questions honestly, and as a child- with your earliest recollections. That’s something that is different about this system and very important to get passed some of the filters that have taken you away from your innate core color that you were born with. That way the bad burrito you had for lunch doesn’t mess up your color test results! Get to it…
