learning to gain the respect of others

It's not about learning to gain the respect of others.


* It's about being oneself;
* It's bout being true to oneself even when peer-pressure/cultural pressure pushes hard for you to cave in;
* It's about integrity;
* It's about being reliable;
* It'a about striving for one's best ... attaining one's maximum effort with each situation;
* It's about knowing one's own limitations;
* It's about self-discipline in all types of situations;
* It's about knowing one is not perfect;
* It's about taking responsibility for one's own actions;
* It's about leaving the ego out of it, as difficult as that can be at times;
* It's about seeing the lesson in rejection and learning from it;
* It's about seeing the positive in each person one encounters ... even those with whom one doesn't feel cozy;
* It's about not caring about what others think about your or say about you.
* It's about loving oneself;
* It's about having respect for oneself.


Because in the end, you are the only one with whom you spend your entire life. When you look back on your life, you'll know what kind of life you've led.
