How often do you feel “I’m too different”!! That’s not just you. So many claim to be different which makes everyone similar and lackluster at the end with that same way of thinking. Spending all your time squeezing yourself in a box trying to fit in is a waste of energy and stops you from reaching your true potential.
Standing out isn’t a bad thing and you might not be as different or weird as you think. Use your unique qualities to your advantage to help you become successful and the best version of you.
There are titles, positions and ranks that command respect through status. That said, should you blindly respect your teachers, your boss or even your parents!? What if those people aren’t behaving in a respectable manner!? What if they take advantage of their position!? Well here’s the thing, age or position shouldn’t be a prerequisite to gaining respect. It’s more about how someone conducts themselves, their attitude towards others and their actions. Respect is thoughtful consideration to another person’s words, feelings, thoughts, ideas, wishes or needs. We all want to be respected by others, but respect is something we need to earn.
If you want to be happy and successful, learning how to earn respect should be an important goal.
