Respect toward others

Speaking or acting with disrespect toward someone does not bring any meaningful value your way. In fact it can put you at a significant disadvantage.

By contrast, being respectful costs you nothing, even when it involves those you disagree with. Your respectful attitude can be of great benefit to you, especially with those who oppose you.

Respect toward someone else enables you to see that person more clearly, more realistically. Respect fosters understanding, and that always works to your advantage.

Respect facilitates communication. In every interaction the more effectively you communicate the more positive your outcome is likely to be.

Respect is the smart choice. Respect comes from a position of power and solidifies that position of power.

Challenge yourself to act with respect, especially when you don’t want to. You’ll quickly realize what a powerful and enduring advantage it gives you.

— Ralph Marston
