Respect Yourself

People, Power & Possibilities

By Donna Fisher, TNNW Contributing Writer

Someone once said, "People do business with people they know and trust." I've always said that it's easy to "meet" a lot of people. However, the important thing is to CONNECT with them and build trust. So, let's review what it takes to develop trust and connection with people:
  1. Listen and really hear what they're saying, connect with what they're saying, see if you can relate (in some way) to who they are and what they're saying.
  2. Be sincere. Be real. Be respectful. Don't embellish, over promise or say nice things to manipulate or look good.
  3. Be honest with your words and actions. Be a person of integrity and do what you say you will do. This is the quickest way to generate trust. Show people that they can count on you for what you say.
  4. Be sincere. Express how you care about people by being truly interested.
  5. Respect people by speaking in a positive and constructive way regarding others. Do not participate in gossip or sharing information inappropriately.
  6. Be appreciate and respectful of the trust that people place in you.
  7. Respect yourself because that's where it all starts. The more you respect yourself (your values, talents, etc.) the more natural (and automatic) it is for others to respect you. Your respect of self creates an energy field that attracts respect. Also when you respect yourself, you have less need to have your attention on yourself and you have more attention and energy to give others.
