The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing that you will make one.

Connect with respect

Each time you meet someone, you have a valuable opportunity. You have the opportunity to be respectful.

Does every person you encounter deserve to be treated with respect? Maybe not, but that doesn’t make your respect any less useful.

Because respect is not a weapon for enforcing the judgments you make about others. Respect is a powerful tool you utilize to establish positive connections.

People know whether you respect them or not. If you seek to create the best possible outcome when dealing with others, respect is essential.

Disrespect might feel powerful at first, but it actually weakens your position. Choose instead to enhance your own strength by choosing to respect others.

Listen, speak, act and think with genuine respect. And forge connections that will serve everyone well.

— Ralph Marston
