“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.” Clint Eastwood
You are important!
When you think you are important, and are always doing your best, this will lead to self-respect. Self-respect is a powerful tool and it seems all successful people have it.
Here is a simple test: How do you react when someone compliments you?
If you can graciously accept the compliment, that is a sign of self-respect.
To see how important you are to everyone look at the news. A child is swept out to sea and everyoneone on hand does what they can to save that child. A person is late back from the bush and hundreds of volunteers go looking for them. Thousands of man hours are spent looking for someone who is reported missing.
