Begin with you
People respond to positive treatment in a positive way and they respond to negative treatment negatively. So how are people responding to you?
Those whom you treat with respect will naturally come to respect you. Those you treat with scorn and disdain will probably not be very cooperative. If you wish to be understood, then sincerely seek to understand. If you wish to be loved by others, then give your love to them.
If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, it is not the mirror that must be changed. It is you. In very much the same way, the world you experience on the outside is a reflection of who you are on the inside. If that world is ever to move forward, it must begin with you.
