What is the bonding cement of all successful relationships be they personal, business or professional? “Respect” Once respect is gone the relationship is dead, it’s like trying to hold up a body without a skeletal frame work. No amount of denial, fake laughter or words of “forgiveness’ will heal or mend the wound. Unfortunately once respect is lost it’s almost impossible to regain. Many people think they lose respect for someone because they get angry or upset with them, but anger does not mean the loss of respect. A relationship can bounce back from anger, disagreements and even arguments, but if you detour into a loss of respect it is usually over.
The best way I have found to deal with relationships that have gone into disrespect is simply to forgive and end them. To try and “forgive” and continue with the relationship only causes the disrespect to continue and cause “emotional infection”. Because we are human we are going to do things that will cause people to lose respect for us, and people will do things that will cause us to lose respect for them. That is simply a part of life.
You never want to lose respect for anyone, however when it does occur in business you can live, survive and continue to thrive. But never allow yourself to lose respect for your spouse or family. Let love reign supreme so that no matter what occurs you never lose respect in that arena of your life.
If you have lost respect for something or someone forgive it, bury it and move on to healing and restoration. Never under estimate the power of “Respect’. It will build or destroy fortunes. Here is the interesting thing, many times losing respect for someone is due to our own personal hang ups and someone losing respect for us was a byproduct of their own problems.
The answer I have found is to do your very best in everything you do and that way no matter how the chips fall you can walk with your head held high. If you do that, you can live and operate in peace when the element of “Respect” fly’s out the window.
If you Respect your financial future, do yourself a favor and turn some of your paper money each week into superior Gold money. Nothing feels better than saving and having that Gold stuff in your bank. When you look at your Gold you will know that you own that money, the rest of the money you earned is gone to the creditors, stores, merchants and a host of others things that you gave your money too.
