I realize that not all of your grew up in an environment where respect was very important. We had three grandparents living with us so we learned at an early age that not everyone reacts the same way to all situations. We were taught that when someone was crabby or mean that you simply didn't know what was going on in their life. They could be ill, or maybe a close family member had died, or maybe a job loss. You never knew why someone was acting that way so it was best to just be respectful.

When I read the below article it really struck me that this list is a great way for us all to live by. I hope you get something out of it too.

Earning respect is about sticking to your convictions and making the best decisions possible. We asked two workplace experts to share the best and fastest ways to gain your coworkers' respect.

There's a difference between being liked and being respected. Ideally, you'll be both.

  • Consistently keep your promises

  • Let your actions speak louder than your words

  • Help others when they need it

  • Ask for help when you need it

  • Say what you mean

  • Always strive to do better

  • Admit to your mistakes

  • Be able to laugh at yourself

  • Show kindness

  • Be willing to change your mind

  • Always do your best to listen well

  • See the good in everything and everyone

  • Give credit when it’s due

  • Know what you stand for in life

  • Give respect to other people
