Respecting others is one of the greatest expressions of love and caring; but not all people are respectful. Respect is earned; it is ok to disagree but it is not
okay to be disrespectful. Sadly there are many people in this world that are so self absorbed that they only think of themselves. People whom are disrespectful
show no regard for others. There are ways we can Earn Respect from Others; and it is quite simple!
Tips on how to Earn Respect
1.) In order to gain respect from others, we must respect ourselves first; love you for whom and what you are. If you want to earn respect, you need to
give respect. Kindness goes a long way; treat others as you’d like to be treated in return.
2.) Consistency is always key! Most people tend to believe in people who are consistent. Show consistency in what ever you say or do.
3.) Be positive! People are attracted to positivity like a magnet; I know I personally love being around optimistic and positive people!
4.) Be kind and polite; manners go a long way. Manners are always respected.
5.) Provide help to others whom are struggling; some people might refuse your help, but they will remember that you offered your help.
6.) Be authentic about your values, your beliefs and what you stand for; this will show people that you respect yourself – people respect others whom
stand up for themselves.
7.) Speak up for yourself – sometimes this is not always easy; however when others see you speaking up, they will generally hold you in a high regard.
8.) Stand up for others; especially if they are unable to stand up for themselves; this is a great way to earn respect of others.
9.) Be respectful of other people’s time. It’s disrespectful to keep others waiting; be prompt to appointments and the like.
10.) Trust is so important, you need to earn trust from others and once you earn it, you should never try to break it; people whom can be trusted
are always highly respected. This also goes with keeping you word or commitments seriously.
Respect is very important in day to day life as it really does set the stage for all human interactions; friendships, love, and effective communication in
the work place and the general public.
Fair warning – not all people will be respectful; I’m sure we all will experience time when people are showing sings of disrespect on a daily basis. There are ways
to deal with such disrespectful behaviors; most importantly it is essential that you are not disrespectful back! It is better to remain respectful and set good
examples; being consistent can actually help others learn by your example! You can also approach this person and express your feelings; by simply saying
“I don’t appreciate how you are treating me.” This approach will go a long way and chances are that person will treat you differently in the future.
Respect also boils down to how we portray ourselves. People admire a warm and reliable image and ultimately will win over others and their respect as well.
Ultimately we teach others how to treat us in one of two ways; by how we treat them and how they see we treat ourselves.
