Respect is something we often don’t think about in our day to day lives unless it is broken. When somebody disrespects you or talks down to you, it is easy to take it personally and build resentment. Additionally, not gaining respect from others can cost you relationships and your reputation. Often, what earns you respect from one person can lead to distrust of another, but there are a few social norms that lead to respect from all people. In this video, we will take a look at some habits and techniques that you can use in order to be more respected by those around you on a day to day basis.
First of all, you need to respect yourself. See yourself as eternally valuable, and a real asset to the world and others.
By knowing your worth, others will clearly reflect your attitude. Make your locus of control clear to see. Take accountability for your actions, and understand how much influence you have in your day to day actions. Set boundaries with your friends, and don’t be afraid to be confrontational with things that bother you. Remain courteous and friendly, but don’t shy away from conflict when it may arise.
