Respect is something that takes a lifetime to gain. Not everybody will give it to you and not everybody deserves it. Usually it’s only in the final years of your existence that your peers and loved ones embrace the fact that you were worthy of their respect. More than likely, they won’t understand you fully until someone is reading the eulogy at your funeral. They will proclaim while pounding the pulpit that you were a person that deserved respect. If you are lucky enough to leave a large imprint in history than the normal person, then people will write about you for years and decades to come.
Respect is something that has to be acquired by every new individual you meet, every new area in business you enter, every new dream you share, every new mate, friend, child, and stranger. Before I was able to apply it to my brands, I had to apply it to myself! Respect is so hard to gain and can be often taken away by one bad decision, or just as simple as a rumor or a lie that’s not in your favor.Share
