THE ART OF RESPECT, it works both ways!

Spread the love

Hmm, the art of respect? It is quite a head full isn’t it? Because respect is something that comes from deep within ourselves. It is how we choose to not only represent ourselves, but how we want to respect others, yes? 

So how does this work? Do we just say we are being respectful? Or are we learning that each step along the way is how we live our respect? 

This is a contributed affiliate post. 

Having others respect us means that we are willing to live in our own truth. So others may need to spend a lot of time with us. To learn about our personality and the way we work.  At times perhaps, comparing what they see in us against their own standards.

As a big part of this, people will easily be able to tell if we don’t have the right level of respect for our self.

It will be impossible for people to give us this gift if you’re unable to give it to ourselves. 

So how we do also know when we are living in our own sense of self respect?


Are we:

  1.  taking good care of ourselves?
  2.  making sure we are using language that is inclusive?
  3.  being good listeners?
  4. validating the other? 
  5. are we peaceful?
  6. being compassionate?
  7. having eye contact?
  8. body language that shows attentiveness?
  9. walking in loving steps

The Art of Respect in Business 

 The way you appear to other people in the world of business can be very important, as most folks will find it easier to respect someone who is well-dressed and groomed. 

And although many of us do not want to be judged by how we look, but rather to see our light. It is important to understand that being well groomed also shows your respect for yourself.

It’s like how wonderful we feel when we know we look good. It also translates into how we interact too, doesn’t it? If we  feel good, we smile easier, yes? 

Companies like can help to work on areas like our teeth, eliminating the aspects of our appearance which we may not like. With this change complete, the people we interact with will see the difference, and it will be much easier to take us seriously.

WHAT YOU ARE WORTH, is the art of respect!

 It can be very easy to sell ourselves short when we are working for our own business. A lot of people will find this part of business hard, as it can be a challenge to know what our time is worth.

As a big part of this, it is important to think about the time wespend on work as having intrinsic value. We should set an hourly rate, using it to guide the amount you charge for the projects you undertake.

Charging the right amount for a job is a lot more respectable than undercharging because we are worried about upsetting people.



 The world of business is something which can never be taken personally. People may make our life very hard, and our clients could make demands which simply aren’t fair.

In this sort of situation, it will be worth standing your ground, making it clear that you don’t do work for free. While this may feel difficult in the moment, it will only get easier the more you do it.

I am learning this more and more. That when I choose to stand my grand, I am respecting my own qualifications and capability. And that in turn resonates with whom ever we are doing business with. 

And if you are not sure of how to enhance your sense of feeling better and more respectful with yourself, check this out.

The Respect It Brings

As you work towards giving yourself the respect you deserve, you will notice a swift improvement in the way those around you act. Having someone’s respect can be the very best way to win their trust and business, and this could be an excellent way to start furthering your company.

Of course, as a big part of this, you will also have to show other people the respect they want.

Hopefully, this post will inspire us to start working harder on the time we put into our self-respect in business.

It can be easy to take ourselves for granted, making it harder to grow the company you’ve worked hard to create. Once we have mastered this part of running our business, we will begin to feel in full control of our future, giving us the drive to keep moving forwards.

SUMMARY,the Art of Respect

When we walk in this compassionate space of the art of respect all aspects of our lives  change. No matter if it is business,personal or family. We begin to shine our light in a way that allows respect to flow.And what is a more enhanced way of truly entering our path than that? 

So let’s do all the we can to be presenting ourselves in a way that shines our own truth and authenticity. Be respectful of others’ times. And when we are living in respect, it just transfers and exponentially changes our environment. It’s like sharing a smile and then that other person automatically smiles to the next person they see. Yes? 

What is your feeling about walking your life in the art of respect?

  1. You make some great points here, Ariel!

    The way I see it, respect is absolutely important in all aspects of life. And yes, it should start with self-respect.

    It’s quite simple, one can only give others what they have. So if you don’t have respect for yourself, how will you be able to respect others?

    Treating people right, doing whatever you said you would, being truthful, helping others out. These are just a few ways I believe we should all be leading our lives.

    Thanks again. Great article.

    1. Hello Eliane, I am so happy you stopped by. Thank you! So well said! I so agree, just imagine if we all did that what a wonderful and more compassionate world we would have? And even if not all do it, but some start. it becomes a tsunami of goodness and it changes everyone in its path yes? In peace and gratitude, ariel

  2. Great article, Ariel.
    Such a sensitive topic but one that needs addressing nonetheless. I feel that it all begins with you – the individual. You have to love and respect yourself in more ways that one. Internally/spiritually as well as externally/grooming/manners. It all comes together in a ‘weird/interconnected’ kind of way but it does.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Hello Michelle, thank you so much for stopping by! It does indeed begin with us. And when we are in that place of respect and self love the world looks so different doesn’t it? In peace and gratitude, ariel

  3. I found this article very introspective for me. Yes, we have to respect ourselves first in order to respect other people. The list of 9 questions is right on target.
    Some of this is different in different parts of the US. I remember how taken by surprise many of us from New England were the first time we went to Minnesota to work with a client. People were so friendly and warm we couldn’t help but notice and think about how respect and treat others especially strangers.

    1. Hello Steven, And that is such a great example of what we assume is the norm. But then find out it is just cultural. So what if we all grew up thinking that we just automtically smile and hug each other? Would that not be a lovely place? I am so happy that you dropped by. So many thanks! In peace and gratitude, ariel

  4. Hello Ariel, Respect is definitely key for success full living! You make some excellent points for me to think about. During some darker days many years ago now, my husband and I read the Love and Respect marriage book – it discusses about how most men value respect more than love — and taught me I needed to be more watchful of ways I can show respect to my husband. Years later it is still a lesson I return too.

    1. Hello Tara, I am delighted that you dropped by. Thank you! Ah and yes it is indeed about radical mutuality of being respectful to each other and also ourselves, isn’t it? And ultimately i think respect is a form of being loving. Do you?
      I am happy to hear you worked out a new path that works for both of you. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  5. Having worked outside the home for most of my life, I can tell you I see a big change in “respect.” People just don’t seem to have respect for themselves or others as much as they used to. I certainly hope this changes. Your article is very insightful and a wonderful read. I know one thing for sure, if I didn’t respect myself and others, my mom would have had some words for me!! Keep up the amazing work!

    1. Hello Brenda, I am so happy you popped by.Thank you! It does indeed seem that something is lacking. And you are so right it is so about self respect and self worth. For how can we possibly walk in love if we are not respectful? Thank you for your kind words. Hope you stop by again soon. In peace and gratitude, ariel

    1. Hello Himawan! I am so happy your stopped by. And glad that you found the post inspiring! I am humbled. I hope we get to chat again soon. IN peace and gratitude, ariel
