Success Stories: The Components of Understanding

“I am proud to say that I have completed the course The Components of Understanding offered by the Volunteer Ministers. This course has been very helpful to me in my everyday life. In learning the principles of affinity, reality and communication, I can now communicate with virtually anyone with ease. I work a job in which good communication is vital, and yet I have come to realize that raising communication helps every part of my life. Imagine a world in which everyone is skilled at communicating. What a much better world that would be to live in!

“Before taking this course, I was having a lot of difficulty at work. The company I work for was going through some transitions that were not boding well with our patrons. Being a manager at this location, I was bearing the brunt of their dissatisfaction. The stress of these exchanges with people was wearing me down to the point where I didn't think I could continue at my current job. I phoned up the Volunteer Ministers' toll-free number for support, and was directed to this course specifically.

“After taking this course, I have noticed that I can often avert misunderstanding and conflict. There have actually been times that I have been presented with an angry person and by the end of the conversation the person is actually thanking me! Now that is what I call a win!

“Overall, since this course, my interactions with other people have been much more enjoyable and as an added bonus I get more satisfaction from my job. I am well pleased with my results and recommend this course to everyone!” — A.C.

"The course has allowed me to create abundance in every area of my life. Affinity, reality and communication [ARC] form a triangle where my experiences with people, places and things are transformed.

“I build up my affinity with my sense of non-judgment when I observe the environment around me. I see things for what they are and not for what they are not; I see people for who they are and not for who they are not. Therefore, my sense of enjoyment of the world is just a bliss!

“When I am or I am not in communication, I know that my affinity and/or my reality does or does not go along with other people and all we do is just re-establish the ARC triangle to understand more!

“One of the breakthroughs I've had is that I am more responsible, I am more conscious that I am at cause in the matter of my own life. The question I used to ask myself is what matters for me? There is my family, my career, my health, my love relationship. And those areas of my life that I am committed to work on in order to build up more and more understanding with the ARC triangle. Thank you." — D.D.C.
