Respect Yourself!

Respect Yourself!

First off, I got a question for you: Who do you talk to more than anyone in the world? The correct answer is: YOU! Within yourself, there’s a subconscious side of you that takes control of your mind and its components without your awareness. It’s like someone else sitting in the cockpit of your mind and taking charge when you’re looking the other way. This subconscious side would never do anything that you normally wouldn’t do. It’s kind of like your mind on autopilot. It operates in ways that you normally would react instinctively based on what the mind has learned consciously.

Let’s shift gears for a moment. We’ve always heard the saying “treat others how you want to be treated!” Most people attempt to follow this advice, but end up being disappointed. What seems to be the problem, you ask? These people already have an expectation of how people will treat them in the future and when they don’t receive it, they will lose faith in the saying. Let me give you some reasons why you should treat others fairly and with respect.

Your subconscious mind is shaped by conscious actions and thoughts. Therefore, your attitude, mindset, and respect for others are important. As we encounter different obstacles and miracles in life, we tend to reassure ourselves about these situations. By learning to shape your conscious side to show respect for others, you’re not only helping others, but yourself as well. Let me give you an example. The coach that is able to motivate a losing team to win the state championship must know how to encourage his team to success. With that in mind, he should be able to provide confidence and self-esteem for his own goals in life due to his daily communication with himself.

We aren’t always aware of our conversations with ourselves, but they always affect the way we perceive life. By learning to shape the way we treat others, we are learning to shape the way we treat ourselves. Talking to yourself is a huge part of life. I’ve probably talked to myself hundreds of times just typing this post. When we treat ourselves and others with respect, everyone is happy! Think about that one for a change.

    Respect. The meaning is always the same but the value is held different amongst different people influenced by different culture. Growing up with Asian parents I was raised to respect everyone no matter what the situation was. Don’t know them? .. Doesn’t matter, “you will respect them”. I’ve lived with this “rule” for many years up until recently; I’ve had a change of thought. Why do I respect people who I have no concern about as if I was handing out respect like hotcakes…as if I had a pocket full of respect waiting to be handed out to the next person I see. Respect is nor black or white, yes or no, respectful or disrespectful. You do not have to respect a person just because… Respect should be held high.. worthy enough to be Earned. Where am I getting to…a neutral state of consciousness before respect and disrespect. You don’t HAVE to do anything. It can be a short or long time before either respect or disrespect is shown. If I were to only respect or only disrespect everyone I’ve every come across then the words would be meaningless. You can take a gable with respect and hand them out like hotcakes hoping for some hotcakes in return..or you can hand down respect like trophies…and hoping to earn a few trophies yourself.

    ps… whats the value of a hotcake anyway
