Building A BEST YOU Has This Ingredient In It

Respect NatureIn building a BEST you as a professional business person for your clients as well as a human being in your personal life, ONE key ingredient to work on within yourself as a trait is

   R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Yes I know there is a song that spells that out but it is recognizing two key things:

1) we and they are imperfect, and acknowleding that what gets on your nerves some days is just flaws of being human will allow you to as a foundation have more TOLERANCE with people

2) the second key point is asking yourself is what you are doing or saying, HURTING another in some way?

If you are hurting someone you are not respecting them.

The Golden Rule as a yardstick, is how would you feel if YOU were treated this way? If not good, there is your answer on the proper respectful way to talk or do things with others.

Respect really is not that hard in society, but in so many people in their character it almost seems like a lost art form or something. Respectulness of others, parents, teachers, co-workers, strangers, significant others, the less fortunate, freinds, the older or poor or infirmed. It does come down to core decency, and flat out some people just choose to live indecent abhorrent lives. Can't change that but we all can work on being respectful ourselves.

Go the extra mile with being respectful at all times with others. It is another one of those "light shining moments" from your spirit within in the world. It will definitely make a difference.

Very true Gary-I will also add that the first person to respect is YOURSELF. If you don't then how will others.

Gary,

That word just doesn't seem to be important or in so many people's vocabulary anymore.  You can't turn on the TV anymore without seeing all the mud slinging going around.  How hard is it to treat someone as you would like to be treated???

Hi Gary - Civility - one of the key markers of respect - is a endangered characteristic of modern day society. We all need to work on bringing it back one action at a time.

Gary, watching a TV evangelist lask week, which I rarely ever do, RESPECT was covered so inspirationally.  To some it comes naturally many others need to learn it, sadly.

Gary...the only way to garner respect is to give respect.  Almost impossible to have it both ways

Hi Gary - This is an important thing for people to learn, and I'm surprised that some people apparently don't get taught this by their parents when they were kids.  I'm sometimes embarassed by the way some folks treat waitresses, flight attendants, and others in the service business.  And some real estate agents need to learn to treat their clients and other agents with more respect as well.

I love your illustration of respect.  If that is a real photo, it sure shows respect for that lonely tree.
