I never understood religion, i never will. It’s not about Hindu, Muslim or Christianity, it’s about forcing that belief/idea of “MY GOD IS SUPERIOR OR ALIVE”. There was a time all gods were living on this planet, so is dinosaurs. Now God is gone, it’s on us humans to fight & get radical or move ahead with little gratitude & humanity. I respect your faith. I rest my case.
Respect is given when it’s earned.
My equation with my people always remains one on one. I appreciate that exchange of attention & affection exact same way. And I love optimistic/enthusiastic people who believe in learning new skills & material growth associated to it. Basically those who don’t spend/waste 3-hours in window shopping or arranging closet. Time is more precious than money, and my 1-hour costs little higher compared to random crowd. If i feel like my time is being wasted, i simply snap out with a thought “I would rather invest that time somewhere else which can yield some mojo or mula”. Now talking about the bad part, there are two reasons i never talk about someone to somebody else under any good or bad circumstances:
1. Backbiting is something i can never ever understand. If i have anything against you in my head or heart, either i have told you bluntly or you are already in my block list.
2. If you have done anything to earn my hate or somehow you lost your respect in my eyes, i consider you dead. And nobody actually likes talking about dead morons.
Treat yourself with respect. It’s funny that, many seek respect from others while they don’t even respect themselves. If you want others to respect you, you need to respect yourself first. We all have our bad days, so it’s not always easy. But when you experience negative self thoughts, just remember your strengths and learn from your mistakes.
Again, respect others if you want to be someone who is respected, you need to respect others. Don’t treat someone differently because of the way they look or where they come from or the different viewpoint underneath that all the same. We all crave respect and recognition. To sum it up, respect is a direct reflection of how you treat others. In other words real respect is received through real respect given it’s a two-way street.
There is a reason why i hate this word “SORRY” and there is also a reason i appreciate those who disagree with me sensibly over serious matters. Let me answer why!!
First, stop apologizing for no reason. Saying sorry constantly without giving it a second thought doesn’t earn much respect & it doesn’t make any sense as well. There is a time and a place for apologies. Sometimes you make mistakes that affect others, you must apologize there. But stop tossing around that word everywhere for nothing. Next, stand up for what you believe. Have you ever come across someone who simply nods their head repeatedly!?! It just seems to agree with everything you say. You can tell that they’re not giving much thought to what you’re saying. It gets meaningless after a while as they just say yes to everything. Those who politely disagree and stand up for themselves get greater respect. It’s important to have a mind of your own.
Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe and at the same time make sure you do it in a sensible respectful manner without being SORRY for your words.
There is nothing called CONFUSION or FEAR, it’s all about SELF-ESTEEM. Those who are afraid of changes seem BORING & OLD to me. Confidence is SEXY & YOUTHFUL.
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.
In this blog I talk about Money time to time. And YES I talk about it a lot. But do you wanna know there is one thing that’s more important than money!!? It’s called RESPECT. Or you can name it reputation because we consider humans as a social creature. Money can buy you everything including happiness, only thing you can’t purchase is RESPECT. You have to remain genuine & law-abiding for a long long period of time to earn some RESPECT.
There is a reason HONESTY is sexy in my eyes. I adore TRUTHFUL people, they are always cherished in my book. And I don’t need to mention; adore means LOVE & RESPECT.
Never ever take your work lightly no matter how it treats you. Figuring out own areas of interest is another topic, but that makes life happening while driving you towards your purpose.
Your work is your identity. I have seen people working their ass off till their idols became rivals. In every scenario “RESPECT & MONEY WERE THE MOTIVATION”. Learn to be consistent if you want to be respected, money will follow the same path.
I work as a data analytics professional & I also run a tiny health supplement business where i sell some athleisure clothing as well under my brand name in few e-commerce sites, because of my business I come in touch with different types of people from different regions/backgrounds. To be honest most people are not good with their ego & self-respect, people fail to understand the difference between both because of their insecurities. Sometimes it goes even more weird because there is MONEY involved. This is the story of other side where I feel other side is cringey or clingy just to get a bargain in a bulk order.
Story of my side is “The businessman part of me is nasty”, please don’t expect a gentle/sweet response if you are talking to me in between 11am-3pm. I just talk logic & numbers in that timeframe. A strong competitive mindset that I can’t leave aside which portrays my image as an angry stubborn rude TAP. The worst part is, I do this with a healthy happy funny mood. I still don’t know how/why my voice sounds so deep/grumpy during that specific time. Learning to be more calm & composed with time. I wish everyday not to hurt anyone with my words, but this happens once in a while. I still make things right before hitting bed. I can’t fall asleep with a thought of hurting someone.
Lesson for me today: There is no place for ARROGANCE & IGNORANCE in business. RESPECT THAT RESPECT YOU GET FROM OTHERS.
