Now that I’m a father, I try really hard to teach my children about respect. I learned all about respect through many stern talkings and glares from my parents. Some of those talking tos weren’t always pleasant. Honestly, none of them were pleasant. Lol!

I don’t think I was a bad kid, but my mom told me some stories that makes me frown every time I hear them. Sadly, I once spat on a person. This person was a good friend of my Dad. Not only was he my Dad’s friend, but I also spit on him at church.

OMG! What was I thinking?! I probably wasn’t.

That wasn’t smart or respectful. I may have been only 7 or 8 yrs old, but that was wrong. Earned or unearned, my Dad’s friend didn’t deserve that.

Respect is about ethics. Learning to have good ethics build your character. Your character carries a lot weight; or in other words, your reputation is on the line. When your name is called, it should bring a smile to people- not a frown. Having the right ethics gives you that positive credibility.

My personal golden rule isn’t “show respect to earn respect” as most go by. I live by give respect because it’s the right thing to do. If you’re all about respect, it should be easy.

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
