Review: The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose
Everyone should read The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose by Dr. Van Moody. While there are tons of books written on self-help issues by many authors, this book is a well written manual that discusses the journey to developing positive relationships.
Author Dr. Van Moody, Pastor of The Worship Center in Birmingham, Alabama, is an Ivy League trained professional. A counselor and business leader, he uses his education and experience to provide a step-by-step guide on cultivating healthy relationships. Moody begins the book by challenging the reader to take an in-depth look at themselves to evaluate who they really are. This brings on his critical point that before understanding and creating a synergetic relationship, one must be honest with themselves. After being honest with themselves, they should receive honest feedback from others regarding who they are. Therefore, this causes the reader to undergo a true self-evaluation in every way. The People Factor is really an eye-opener for those who have often wondered about how to fix those specific problem areas within their relationships.
After reading this book and doing a hard self-evaluation, my perspective was changed drastically on current relationships that I honor and whether or not I should continue to do so. Following Moody’s steps enabled me to paint a clearer picture as to what should be improved about myself and my current bonds with people as well as what I should be left behind.
This book is a great read as it helps readers build and maintain positive, successful relationships while encouraging them to do a powerful assessment of their situations. The People Factor will definitely revolutionize your life.
