Knowledge will give you power; character will give you respect. — Bruce Lee
To have the kind of solid relationships that bring fulfillment, give respect freely. We all deserve to be treated with respect because we all have value. Leading first with respect is an effective way to interact with others.
When we respect ourselves, respect others, and exhibit competence, others will show respect in return. Another key to building great relationships is to commit to adding value to others daily and making relationships a priority.
CALL TO ACTION:
Consider someone you have a difficult relationship with, how can you give respect freely and add value to them today?
